Sunny Weekend; Enjoy While You Can!


The vast majority of us woke up to sub-freezing temperatures this morning, the coldest we’ve seen around these parts in a couple of weeks. The thermometer is rebounding nicely so far this morning, with temps on their way to the 55-60 degree range for highs under a beautiful, sunny sky. Lows tonight won’t be as cold; while some of the sheltered rural areas may dip below freezing again, most of us will stay in the middle to upper 30s for overnight low temperatures.

Sunday will be a decent day as well, but clouds will be on the increase later in the day ahead of yet another storm system poised to bring rain to the area. This one is expected to be rather progressive, however, and will move into and out of the area fairly quickly. While we may hear a few rumbles of thunder on Monday into early Tuesday, nothing in the way of severe weather is expected. Rainfall amounts should for the most part stay below an inch, which shouldn’t recharge any of the flooding issues we’ve had over the past few weeks. The Chattahoochee and Flint rivers should both continue to recede despite the additional rain.

A cold front will mark an end to the rainfall by midweek, with another shot of colder air arriving. Lows should again bottom our below freezing in the upper 20s to lower 30s by the time we reach Thursday and Friday mornings, accompanied by high temperatures below normal as well in the upper 40s to middle 50s.
