Temps will pick back up near 80 degrees on Sunday and Monday, with lots of sunshine predicted for our Memorial Day holiday.

Earlier this week, Kirk Mellish published his ‘June Weather Outlook,’ predicting that metro Atlanta would see some of its warmest weather of the year so far.

“A slightly early heat wave does not automatically equate to a long hot summer,” Mellish wrote. “It COULD be a hot summer but this alone does not mean that.”

Mellish added that people “often make that false assumption based on linear thinking, but weather is a non-linear system. It is chaotic and unstable, in constant flux, constantly changing.”
