Friday and Saturday

Gross P1 

With the low pressure system stalling out over the southern Appalachian Mountains in Tennessee and Kentucky the cloudy conditions will not leave us with the passing of the cold front Thursday. Instead, scattered showers will remain possible into the weekend and a blanket of clouds will remain overhead. High temperatures following the passing of the cold front will be in the lower 60s, bringing “sweater weather” to Middle GA. Wind will blow from the southwest at 10-15 mph on Friday with gusts up to 20mph, adding a bit of a chill to the already cooler air left behind in the cold front’s wake. This will shift slightly to the north on Saturday, blowing instead out of the west-southwest at about 7-12 mph. High temperatures will remain in the lower 60s with the possibility of isolated showers also still lingering.

Sunday will see more pleasant conditions return in time for any Halloween festivities. Sunny skies are expected with temperatures rising back into the upper 60s and lower 70s. A northwest wind will help to clear humidity from the air, however it will add a bit of a bite during Trick-or-Treat on Sunday night as temperatures fall back into the 50s. Low temperatures heading into Monday morning however will be in the mid to upper 40s across the region. Overall pleasant conditions should carry into the start of next week.
