Macon, Georgia (41NBC / WMGT) – Cold and dry air is moving to Peach State after the Cold Front.
It was the warmest morning of the week in all of Central Georgia, as several locations in the regions recorded their 24-hour high for today at night. The storms were thankfully not very strong by the time they arrived in Central Georgia, and so we saw only a few strong gusts of wind and short-term heavy rain. Now for the rest of the day we will see the clouds deal with the clear sky returning to sunset. High temperatures in the afternoon will range from the 50s to the mid-60s, and the warmest places will be the south-eastern counties. Shortly after midnight in these places a maximum close to or above 70 degrees was recorded. The wind will be northwest 10-15 m / s today, gusts will reach 20 m / s.
The wind will be really noticeable tonight as the clear skies hang overhead and the dry conditions end. Although the wind at night will not be as strong as it is today, it will still be northwesterly and the temperature will feel 5 or more degrees colder due to the wind. Minimum rates for the night will drop to 30s, and many in the region are likely to reach or fall below zero.
Sunny skies are again in full swing on our Saturday as temperatures reach the lower and mid 60s. The wind will be northwesterly, 10-15 m / s, gusts may reach 20 m / s, so it will be cold during the day.
At night the sky will remain clear as before sunrise the wind will move from the northwest to the northeast. Low temperatures will drop to below and mid-30s, but most, if not the entire region, will remain above zero.
There will still be a lot of sun on Sunday, but the clouds will start to return, especially the high-level cirrus clouds. The wind will move to the southeast early, during the day will range from 5 to 10 m / s. This will start to increase humidity and heat as the temperature rises to above 60s across Central Georgia.
At night the clouds will continue to increase, with the wind still coming from the southeast, only this time it should stay around 5 mph. Additional clouds as well as southerly winds will lead to low temperatures and to the mid-40s, which is still cold but almost no frost.
Rains are possible on Monday, the maximum will return to the 70s. On Tuesday, many places will start to see the 80s, and by Wednesday the whole region will see the 80s. Next week will be a few days with steady southerly winds to keep things warm as well as accumulate plenty of humidity, creating plenty of room for showers during the week and thunderstorms over the weekend with another cold front.
