Warm, humid today, showers Thursday and Friday

Posted: Updated:

Good Wednesday.  Changes in our weather are headed our way.

A cold front approaching from the west will provide us with breezes from the south this afternoon.  That will allow highs to reach about 90, and we will have plenty of humidity to spare.  We are between weather systems right now, so there is no triggering mechanism to spark showers and storms.  As a result, I don't expect any rain today, and am keeping the chance at less than 20%.

Thursday will be another warm and muggy day with a high of 89.  Late Thursday afternoon we will see the front slowly drifting through.  That will bring a line of showers and storms to the area Thursday evening.  Expect some scattered showers to linger on and off through the day Friday. 

For the weekend, the front will become stationary east of our area.  That could cause a stray shower or two to pop up in parts of north Georgia up into the Blue Ridge.  The chance for any rain, though, is only 20% Saturday and Sunday.

The main feature of this weekend will be the cooler weather moving in.  Highs will be in the low 80s with lows in the mid 60s this weekend.  Humidity will also be a bit lower, so get ready for a very nice weekend.
