Shifting storm odds

It’s that time of year when it’s rare to get a day with zero chance of rain or a thunderstorm or even a very low chance.

Today it looks like the highest threat will be gradually shifting south by late afternoon and evening:

5-day forecast.

Thunderstorm chances change from one day to the next, and as I’ve written so many times in the past, UNLIKE other types of forecasts, thunderstorm forecasts in some patterns have to be updated every 3 or 4 hours.

Looks like a little hotter, drier and sunnier as we get into the weekend but there will still be typical summertime in Atlanta hit and miss afternoon or evening storms.
