Wet Pattern Trudges On

Drying Out This Weekend

We continue to stay stuck in an unsettled wet pattern through Saturday.

A stalled out front that has been bringing rain to the our area will transition to a warm front as it exits to the north today, but we are not out of the woods in terms of rain. As this system exits, a short wave of energy out of the Gulf will slide up along the front and bring with it more rainfall today, tonight and Thursday. Not looking at any thunderstorm activity to go along with these showers.

A wave of low pressure is expected to drag yet another front through the area Friday into Friday night bringing more rain. The Euro model shows additional rainfall amounts from Wednesday into Saturday morning reaching 2 to 2.5 inches for the area. Hopefully, the rainfall will be spread out enough so flash flooding will not be as likely although it still could occur due to the saturated earth. As I write this, there is still a FLOOD WARNING in effect along the banks of the Chattahoochee River for Muscogee, Russell and Lee Counties until tomorrow afternoon.

Finally some relief from the wetness as high pressure takes over for the weekend into early next week allowing for drier conditions… but not for long. Another system is expected to bring more rain to the region during the middle part of next week.

Today- Cloudy with scattered showers mainly in the afternoon. Highs in mid to upper 60s. Winds: VAR 2-5MPH

Tonight- Showers likely overnight under cloudy skies. Lows in the mid to upper 50s. Winds: W 5MPH

Tomorrow- Cloudy with showers. Highs in upper 50s to low 60s. Wind: NW then NE 5MPH

Keep smiling!
