Warm And Dry Weather Continues
High pressure will continue to be in control of our weather for the next few days. With sinking air and winds out of the west and southwest this will continue to drive our temperatures into the upper 80s and low 90s for highs today and tomorrow. No records are in jeopardy across the Columbus area as 92 degrees is the record high set back in 1930. A weak cold front, encompassed in the northwest flow pattern aloft, will be the main focusing area for scattered thunderstorms to our north. Some of these storms could be strong to severe over northern Georgia (roughly from Atlanta northward). With dry and warm conditions the last few days we will continue to expect higher concentrations of pollen in the air, thus affecting our allergies more this week. The next chance of rain is late Tuesday night into the morning hours of Wednesday. Afterwards, temperatures will cool down below normal on Wednesday.
