There will be a slight warm-up for mid-week, but rain chances remain out of the forecast.

Discussion:

The quiet weather pattern lasts all week!  Each day will be a picturesque fall day with crisp mornings, mild afternoons, and plenty of sunshine.

We will start the day with cool temps in the 50s. With plenty of sunshine this afternoon, highs will be in the upper 70s.

The beautiful conditions stick around all week and into the weekend with lows in the 40s to 50s and highs in the 70s to 80s under a sunny to mostly sunny sky each day.

The only downside to all of this nice weather is that we are in need of rain with no rain chances in sight. A weak cold front comes through on Friday.  While that may bring some clouds to end the week, the front looks like it will come through dry.

The latest drought monitor that came out on Thursday showed abnormally dry conditions across much of North Georgia and with another dry week, we may see moderate drought return to the region.

In the tropics, we have two areas we are watching. A tropical wave in the eastern Atlantic has a high chance of development the next 5 days. At this point, the models take it into the Caribbean.  High pressure to the north should keeps this storm moving toward the west.  No immediate threats for us.  We will let you know if the tracks change.

There's also a tropical depression off the coast of Africa that won't last too long.

The next tropical storm that forms will be named Julia.
