So, I'm not sure if anyone else has taken a look.  But, the weather isn't looking too good for this week/end.

Be safe on your drive there.  And maybe pack a poncho or something just in case.

it's tropical depression 10 (hurricane Irma, to her friends). hopefully  it won't be the steady downpour they're getting in the gulf.  :(

Looking wet.

Right now it looks like rain Thursday through Sunday morning with the sun finally appearing late Sunday.
At least we won't fry waiting outside in lines. But definately want an umbrella or rainjacket.

Also, as an FYI, there is alot of building going on downtown so if you drive and like to use some of the parking lots downtown - a number of them don't exist anymore as buildings are going up on them.

I figure it this way, it could always be worse..DC could be in Houston, or I could be trying to commute from Houston.   :)
So glad I'm not, and I'm sorry for anyone trying to get to ATL from there.  Wish you all the best! 
I'll take the rain and will pack some Dollar Tree ponchos.  Throw away, 2 for $1 and fits in your back pocket.  These are typically my go to for Red Sox games, but will work out great for a potential downpour or two while in Atlanta.
