MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – After a wet and stormy weekend across Middle Georgia, temperatures have cooled off slightly to begin the week but will be rebounding back into the upper 80’s and lower 90’s by the weekend.
High pressure is going to be the driving force of our weather as we head into the next several days. Overnight tonight under a mostly clear sky temperatures will be falling into the lower 50’s under a mostly clear sky. It would not surprise me to see a few communities reach the upper 40’s by daybreak tomorrow morning.
A gradual warming trend is going to begin as we head throughout the work week. Tomorrow afternoon under a mostly sunny sky temperatures will top out in the upper 70’s and lower 80’s. That is about three to five degrees cooler than where we should be for this time of year.
On Wednesday afternoon temperatures will be warming into the lower and middle 80’s under a mostly sunny sky. As we get into Thursday rain chances do go up, but only to 20%. Very isolated showers are possible on Thursday afternoon and evening. As we head into the rest of the week and into the weekend, temperatures are going to be on the warm side. By the weekend I expect afternoon high temperatures to reach the lower 90’s under a mostly sunny sky. On Sunday a few rain showers cannot be ruled out, but rain chances are running at less than 10% at the moment.
