Atlanta - Patchy fog may develop late Thursday night as the temperature dips into the mid to upper 50s by sunrise on Friday. Any fog will lift or burn off pretty quickly on Friday, and the temperature will rise into the low 70s by lunchtime. It will continue warming into the upper 70s to low 80s with partly to mostly sunny afternoon skies.

The weather stays dry Friday evening, but there is a First Alert for a line of showers/storms that will move through north Georgia early Saturday. There is a low risk of strong to severe storms Saturday morning. The main risk is for straight-line damaging winds with heavy downpours and lightning. The risk of storms in the Atlanta Metro area is for an hour or two between 5-10 AM. We’ll continue to narrow the timeframe over the next 36 hours.
