Typical July day ahead!
It's going to be a hot July day, as temperatures climb to 90-92 today. The heat index will rise to 96-99 with isolated showers developing after 12PM. Rain looks to be hit and miss, but storms that do develop could produce brief heavy rain, lightning, and strong wind gusts. There is not a risk for severe weather today, and rainfall totals through tonight will range from 0.25" to 0.50" total.
It looks like Saturday will bring the better rain chance. As the Georgia Mountain Fair kicks off this weekend, the rain chance looks higher for the Blue Ridge Mountains on Saturday increasing after 9 AM. Temperatures for the Blue Ridge will range from the upper 80's on Saturday to the low 80's on Sunday.
It looks likely for rain and storms on Monday of next week, as a decent cold front starts to approach the Tennessee Valley. This front looks to move in by Tuesday. Temperatures and humidity will be dropping for next week. It certainly won't be cool, but it will be cool for July as nighttime lows look to be 5-10 degrees below normal, and highs 4-6 degrees below normal.
