Partly to Mostly Cloudy
High: 69°F Low: 45°F
I hope you grabbed your umbrellas and coat before heading out the door this morning! The Wedge had a strong hold on northeast Georgia as we started the day out at a cool and rainy 57°F. Since then, temperatures have steadily dropped and have stagnated at 47°F. We also saw quite a bit of rain today across northeast Georgia, with Athens recording a total of 0.88 inches of rain. Today was dreary and cold, but tomorrow will be a different story. We’ll start off just as chilly in the mid-to-upper 40s, but we’ll say goodbye to the Wedge and hello to much more pleasant temperatures in the upper 60s!
Tonight: Cloudy with a stray light shower possible. Chance of rain 50%. Light east winds. Patchy fog after 8PM. Low near 45°F.
Friday: Partly to mostly cloudy. Fog before 9AM. Chance for isolated showers throughout the day. West winds at 5-10mph. High near 69°F.
Warm End To The Week:
Bundle up and dress for rain before heading out tonight. We’ll see the Wedge continue its hold with temperatures and periods of rain and drizzle for a little while longer. Expect lows in the low-to-mid 40s for northeast Georgia. Places up in the far north by the mountains should expect lows a couple of degrees cooler. In the way of showers, we’ll continue to see a chance of rain tonight, as well as patchy fog building in after 8PM.
12:00 A.M. EDT – Friday
With most of the rain out of the area, there’s still a bit of moisture lingering across the state. So, a light and brief shower can’t be ruled out.
7:00 A.M. EDT – Friday
For the morning commute, we’ll see the chance of light and passing showers. Additionally, there will be areas with fog that will last until around 9AM. Be sure to travel safe with the limited visibility! We’ll continue to see areas of drizzle before the Wedge is swept away and northeast Georgia is freed from the cold.
We’ll warm up significantly compared to today. Tomorrow, expect highs in the high 60s across our area. It’ll still be mostly cloudy, but perhaps you might even want to break the shorts back out to end the work week.
Rain In The Future:
Although things are looking up for tomorrow, we’ll be seeing more rain throughout the next couple of days. Be sure to keep track of your umbrella and rain boots and to drive carefully on the roads. Friday and most of Saturday look very enjoyable, so be sure to take advantage of the days ahead! Early next week looks to be a little wet.
