MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – It was a rainy and cloudy weekend across Middle Georgia, but sunny skies return today and will hang around for a few days.
This past weekend most areas in Middle Georgia received around an inch of rain that began late Thursday night and hung around through the afternoon hours on Saturday. That all changes this afternoon as a mostly sunny sky returns to our area bringing along with it warmer temperatures. After topping out at 58° on Sunday, temperatures will reach the mid-to-upper 60’s this afternoon. With an area of high pressure out in the Central Plains, we will keep a light breeze out of the northwest for the remainder of the afternoon into the overnight hours where temperatures will dip into the middle 30’s under a mostly clear sky.
More sun returns on Tuesday as the area of high pressure to our northwest continues to scoot towards the east bringing in drier air to Middle Georgia. Afternoon high temperatures will be in the low-to-mid 60’s while overnight low temperatures will hang around 40°.
We welcome in a little more cloud cover on Wednesday afternoon ahead of more rain overnight Wednesday night. I do expect for the majority of the rain to move in on late Wednesday night/early Thursday morning. Rain will hang around as we head into the last day of the work week, but unlike this past weekend we will have a dry weekend just in time for holiday travel! Across the southeast travel will be fine, but at this moment long range models suggest the trickiest of travel areas will be the Pacific Northwest.
