Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, June 20, 2021 at 6:51AM

Showery Sunday

Showers continue for Father's Day as we rest under the remnants of tropical cyclone Claudette; expect some thunderstorm potential into the evening hours as well. Things clear out a bit for Monday before another shot of rain approaches from the northwest Tuesday afternoon, ushering in more rain potential before leaving somewhat cooler and drier air in its wake. High pressure then dominates for the remainder of the week, though we could see some clouds redevelop into Saturday as easterly flow approaches from the Atlantic.

Forecast Discussion

The remnants of Claudette continue to churn over Atlanta and are expected to head northeast right overhead through the day. Expect moderate to heavy rainfall, mainly in shower and thunderstorm format; things settle down into Monday behind the system.

After a quiet but warm Monday, things get interesting again into Tuesday as a cold front approaches from the northwest; showers and thunderstorms remain likely, especially into the afternoon. Slightly cooler and drier air follows, though nothing worth planning for.
The remainder of the week looks quiet but keep an eye out for cloud development and maybe a stray shower into the weekend as the Bermuda High builds and tracks in Atlantic air.
