ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - An isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible in west Georgia after midnight. It will likely stay dry in the Atlanta Metro area through the morning commute. There is a First Alert for Friday midday and afternoon as the risk of storms increases. You can expect scattered thunderstorms from sometime between late-morning and early-evening across north Georgia. It will not be raining the whole time, but any storms could contain heavy downpours and frequent lightning.

The risk of storms diminishes in the evening and it will be mainly dry overnight. The low temperature will be in the 60s. The temperature heats up to the mid 80s on Saturday afternoon with an isolated shower/storm possible. Mother’s Day looks even warmer with the low temperature in the upper 60s and the high temperature in the upper 80s to low 90s. Once again, an isolated shower/storm cannot be ruled out.

There is another First Alert for scattered storms on Monday as a cold front arrives and brings cooler weather in the midweek.

You can keep an eye on the Mother’s Day forecast, even if you’re away from the TV, in the First Alert Weather App.
