The Weather Channel reports that Atlanta nights will have lows in the 60s, but during the day, temps are expected to soap up to the high 80s and low 90s for the next week, with nine days of predicted thunderstorms.
Starting Tuesday, June 23 and for the next 10 days, there's a 40% to 80% chance of rain every single day except for Saturday, June 27, which drops to a 20% chance for rainfall.
Looking at the Amazon Rainforest in Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil, you'll see a very similar forecast. The temperatures range from the mid-to-high 80s every day, with a total of 12 rainy days.
