Thursday Morning: Spring-like weather continues into the weekend; Strong cold front to come

Weather

StormTracker Forecast…Good morning! I hope you had a very Merry Christmas! You can expect areas of patchy fog this morning – patches of drizzle will also be possible. Clouds will rule the sky today with temperatures topping out in the lower 70s. A few breaks in the clouds are expected. Spotty showers are possible. Rain chance runs around 30%. Areas of fog will likely develop once again tonight and into Friday morning.

Friday will consist of clouds, fog, and scattered showers, thanks to increased moisture out of the Gulf of Mexico ahead of our next rainmaker. Rain chance is around 30% on Friday before increasing to around 40% on Saturday, which means widely scattered to scattered showers can be expected at times. The cold front is forecast to move in Sunday morning, but ahead of the front, showers and isolated storms are likely. Rain chances ramp up late Saturday night/overnight and Sunday morning to around 60-70%. A few strong storms may be possible overnight on Saturday and possibly into the morning hours. The main threat would be damaging wind. We will fine-tune the forecast and keep you up to date on-air and online.

Monday will be much cooler with highs topping out in the upper 50s and overnight temperatures will dip into the 40s. The dry weather quickly ends with rain chances increasing on New Years Eve. As of now, a 30% chance for rain is in the forecast. Also, it will be quite chilly as we ring in the New Year. Midnight temperatures will likely be in the 40s. Rain chances increase on New Years Day as another system begins to move into the region.

If you’re traveling to Atlanta to cheer the Tigers on in the Peach Bowl, be sure to pack the rain gear. The same cold front that will move through the Capital City Sunday morning will move into Atlanta on Sunday. A few showers will be possible for tailgating on Saturday.
