A Big Cool Down on Friday
Although the threat of severe weather is over, flooding and flash flooding remain a concern through tomorrow morning. Over 3″ of rain has fallen since yesterday leaving roadways saturated and slick and creeks and streams bubbling over their banks. The strong cold front has moved through dragging drier air with it, so the rain moves out and lets us dry out a bit on Friday.
Colder air is also filtering in behind the front making for a chilly day on Friday. If it gets cold enough and there is enough moisture left, there could be a few light snow flurries in Lee, Chambers and Troup counties on Friday morning. No accumulation, of course. It may take a little while, but the sunshine is set to return by Friday afternoon. Another weak disturbance will trigger a few showers on Saturday before exiting and allowing for a dry, sunny and pleasant Sunday to wrap up the weekend. Zonal flow will usher in another active pattern next week with scattered showers back in the forecast Monday through at least the middle of the week.
Daytime highs will struggle to get out of the 40s on Friday and we’ll wake up to the mid 30s on Saturday morning. Weekend highs will rebound to the upper 50s to low 60s with nighttime lows in the upper 30s to upper 40s. Next week, we’ll climb back into the upper 60s to low 70s during the afternoon with lows in the mid 50s at night.
