For North Georgia and Athens, we experienced a very nice day with plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures, which was a nice break from the below average temperatures early earlier this week. Unfortunately, we'll be starting this weekend off with some soggy weather as a low pressure system from our west swoops in tomorrow, bringing heavy rain, gusty winds and the threat of an isolated tornado.
As we head into the overnight hours in Athens, mostly clear skies throughout the night will give way to cloudy skies in the later morning. Tempertaures will dip down into the upper 30's. For tomorrow, Thunderstorms develop in the late morning and last into rush hour commute, with a couple of storms possibly being severe. Temperatures will peak at 60 degrees.
A similar story can be said for North Georgia. As we head into the overnight hours, clear skies will presist throughout the night, with clouds moving in the late morning. Temperatures will dip into the upper 30's. For tomorrow, thunderstorms will roll into the area in the late morning/early afternoon, bringing some heavy showers, gusty winds and a severe storm can't be ruled out. Temperatures will reach the lower 60's.
As we look ahead to the weekend, the low pressure system will moe out of our area by Friday evening, bringing in clear, sunny weather but cooler and gusy winds throguhout the weeknd. We're alos tracking a arctic blast of air coming into our region starting early next week, so stayed tuned for more information on that as we get closer. Have a wonderful weekend!
