No heat and humidity relief in the short-term

Medium range cool-off, if it comes looks modest

A tropical air mass persists over Georgia for the next 5 days at least, with daytime high temperatures running 5 degrees or more above-average for this time of year which is 86F. For Atlanta the afternoon Heat Index or “feels like” peaking around 100 today through Friday.

Chance of a thunderstorm Tomorrow-Wednesday through Saturday too low to worry about. Temperatures may back down some by Sunday/Monday but no great shakes.

The Labor Day Weekend and Labor Day look more dry than wet as of now, chance of a shower or storm normal or below normal.

We may get some more relief from the heat by next Tuesday/Wednesday and beyond, at least temporarily.

As far as the Autumn is concerned most models keep temperatures above-normal with rainfall starting out above-average for September but trending drier as the Fall goes on. These are 3-month means, not every day or every week or every month.

ECMWF SEASONAL OUTLOOK TEMPERATURES AND RAINFALL:

The FALL does not look hot merely warmer than normal ON AVERAGE, with rainfall a little above-normal to near-normal for the 3-month period.

This LA NINA research by Commodity Weather Group shows that in a typical weak to moderate La Nina in the Pacific as we are expecting, we would usually have to wait until November for a month with temperatures below-normal on average:
