A large area of high pressure is contributing to the stagnant airmass over Georgia. High temperatures will slowly climb through the week with some areas in Georgia approaching the upper 90s. It appears that our next chance for rain begins to return around Thursday with more tropical moisture returning by this weekend, although an isolated shower can't be ruled out, especially toward the mountains where a southeast flow and orographic lift will help to fire off a few late day thundershowers.
