MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – Fall-like weather will continue this week in Middle Georgia, though cooler conditions are expected by the end of the work week as another cold front plunges south and drops afternoon highs.

Monday morning, however, will feel more like winter with temperatures dropping from the 40’s into the upper 30’s in some spots.

Break out the heavy winter jackets and make sure all kids students are dressed in layers at the bus stop!

Afternoon highs in Middle Georgia Monday through Wednesday will be in the low-middle 70’s, so while you may need to bundle up in the morning, the afternoon will be a bit more comfortable.

Our next cold front arrives late Tuesday through early Wednesday morning.

This front should be mostly dry when it arrives, producing very little rainfall in the state of Georgia.

Behind the front, colder air will flow from northwest to southeast.

Middle Georgia will really feel the effects of this cold front Thursday as afternoon highs barely reach the low 60’s and struggle to get out of the 50’s Friday.

When she's not monitoring weather conditions, Kristen is probably talking or watching sports. She grew up watching her brothers play and even got involved in a few sports herself. Kristen loves college football, though she is biased towards the SEC. She notes that Saturdays down south in the fall are arguably some of the best days of the year. She has always been an Atlanta Braves fan, and she also enjoys watching the Atlanta Falcons and the Atlanta Hawks battle it out against their opponents. Kristen also loves the outdoors and exploring new locations to hammock with a view. She constantly has an eye to the sky, and eagerly awaits sunset each day - hoping for a colorful sky to capture with her camera. She is excited to finally experience some beautiful sunrises now that she's working the morning side of the day.
