Heat and humidity to back off by end of weekend

Listen to the content of this post:

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT)- A cold front will clear the area tomorrow afternoon and slightly cooler and drier air will temporarily settle in.


Under a partly cloudy sky, temperatures will fall into the upper 60’s and lower 70’s. A shower or two is possible overnight but coverage will be extremely isolated. Areas of patchy dense fog could develop by daybreak as well.


Hot and humid conditions continue tomorrow as temperatures near 90° are in store once again. Scattered showers and a few storms are possible on Saturday afternoon. By Sunday, the cold front will have cleared Middle Georgia and afternoon temperatures will top out in the middle 80’s under a mostly sunny sky.


The week starts off dry with seasonal temperatures, but the heat is going to be turned up to another level late next week as a ridge of high pressure builds in across the eastern half of the United States. Temperatures could top out in the middle 90’s and above.
