MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – Much like yesterday, we have started the morning out with sub-freezing temperatures and will struggle to make it out of the 40’s this afternoon. Slightly warmer weather is on the way beginning tomorrow afternoon.

TODAY.

While it is going to be sunny this afternoon, temperatures are not going to make it very pleasant to be outdoors for an extended period. Temperatures today will top out in the middle to upper 40’s, but when you factor in a northwest breeze with gusts up to fifteen miles per hour, it is going to feel more like the lower 40’s. After sunset this evening at 5:57, temperatures will fall quickly across the area. By daybreak tomorrow morning, temperatures will be in the middle 20’s with a few locations reporting the lower 20’s.

TOMORROW.

We’re looking ahead to more sunshine on the way for your Wednesday as well as warmer temperatures. It’s not much, but high temperatures tomorrow will top out in the low 50’s. Late tomorrow evening and into the nighttime hours, cloud cover will be on the rise ahead of our next weather system. Temperatures will be in the upper 20’s and lower 30’s. No precipitation will fall during the period we see freezing temperatures.

EXTENDED FORECAST.

We continue our gradual warming trend into Thursday afternoon where the middle 50’s are expected under a mostly cloudy sky. We will see a few isolated showers on Thursday, but the bulk of the rain with our next weather system moves in on Friday. Temperatures will be running well above the freezing mark so we will only be dealing with scattered rain showers as we head into the final day of the work week. We dry out just in time for the weekend though!
