Soggy and cold week in the southeast

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – After a dry and mostly sunny Veterans Day weekend, the wet weather is making a return.  Soggy conditions will last most of the week as a low pressure system moves along the Gulf Coast.

The warm front will effect Middle Georgia’s weather first by pulling in warm and moist air from the Gulf of Mexico. Temperatures will rise throughout the day Monday and continue rising overnight into Tuesday morning.

A cold front will push in from the northwest, bringing colder air down south throughout the day Tuesday. Temperatures will drop from the 60’s Tuesday morning to the low 50’s Tuesday afternoon.

The cold front and warm front will work together to squeeze out all the moisture in the atmosphere, resulting in widespread rainfall across the southeast.
