Hazy Start and Rainy End to Weekend
For our followers of North and Northwest Georgia, some may be wondering why its so hazy outside? This is due to wildfire smoke from Canada being carried by the Jet Stream and a low pressure system off the coast of New England carrying the smoke throughout the eastern half of the United States. This has triggered air quality alerts, which means the air outside can be dangerous if prolonged exposure occurs, especially in sensitive groups of people like children, elderly, and people with health conditions like asthma. Those groups of people should take extra precautions such as limiting outdoor time and closing windows and doors. But the good news is that the hazy skies will be less prevalent heading into this weekend, which will also result in better air quality.
For Friday, we expect to see plentiful sunshine and some hazy skies with temperatures in lower 80's and lows to be in the upper 50's. For the weekend, we expect to see those hazy skies clear up and bring us sunshine on Saturday but a low pressure system moves into the area on Sunday, bringing some scattered showers throughout the day. Temperature are suppose to stay in between the mid-to-upper 80's during the day and upper 60's in the night time. So if you have any outdoor plans this weekend, make sure to bring that umbrella jsut in case and have a fantastic weekend!
