What’s That Bright Thing in the Sky?
SUNSHINE RETURNS FOR TODAY AND THE WEEKEND
After what seems like days of cloudiness and rainfall, a cold front finally came through last night to scour out the deep moisture and rid us of both showers and clouds. The sun will be out fully today, but as a reinforcing cold front moves through, temperatures will hold in the upper 50s to lower 60s for highs. Gusty northwest winds of 15-25 mph with higher gusts will make it feel a little cooler outside if not in full sunshine. Lows tonight will be in the 30s areawide; expect a light freeze in some of the rural sheltered areas, but nothing widespread.
Temperatures will again top out around the 60 degree mark Saturday with sunny skies as well. Lows Sunday will be in the 32-38 degree range with highs in the middle to upper 60s under a mostly sunny sky.
Clouds start to increase on Monday as a weak impulse approaches the area. The clouds won’t keep temperatures down, though, with upper 60s to lower 70s expected for highs. Highs will remain in the 70-75 degree range next week with a good chance of rain Tuesday and then chances for showers through Friday. The week will be NOTHING like the previous few weeks, however, and widespread heavy rainfall is not currently anticipated.
Parts of the Chattahoochee, Flint, and Tallapoosa rivers in our viewing area continue at minor flood stage but will recede below flood stage by later this weekend into early next week.
