Call it the never-ending summer.

Temperatures on Sunday should stretch into the upper 80s once again, with the high hovering around 90 degrees, according to Channel 2 Action News.

“It’s going to be another hot day today,” Channel 2 meteorologist Brian Monahan said.

If Atlanta reaches 90 degrees, that would tie the record for the hottest Oct. 7.

There is a slight possibility for isolated showers in North Georgia Sunday, with partly cloudy skies and a chance of precipitation at 20 percent.


Meanwhile, Atlanta drivers face another baseball-related traffic bottleneck on Sunday night.

The Atlanta Braves, facing elimination from the National League playoffs, return to SunTrust Park in Cobb County to face the Los Angeles Dodgers. Game time is 8:07 p.m.

It’s the first postseason game in the park’s young history, so expect traffic delays near the park for hours before and after the game. L.A. leads the best-of-five series 2-0.

Things should cool off by game time, with temperatures in the low 80s at 8 p.m., and into the 70s in the later innings, Monahan said.

And looking further into the week, Channel 2 meteorologist Brad Nitz tweeted on Saturday: Tropical depression 14 has formed. We are in the cone for potential impacts in 4 to 5 days.

It is expected to formally become Tropical Storm Michael on Sunday.
