COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Today will be a day with a bit more clouds around - especially after lunchtime with isolated showers and storms expected this afternoon, too. Temperatures will still manage to reach the upper 80s and low 90s.

Friday looks like another hot and dry day, but Saturday will feature a 30% coverage of showers and storms returning to the forecast as a system approaches from the west.  Sunday looks much wetter with the possibility of a good soaking for the Valley. A few thunderstorms are also anticipated but not any severe weather.

Good rain chances will linger into Monday of next week for some, and then the forecast becomes a lot more unsettled with disagreement in the major long-range computer models about rain chances for Tuesday and Wednesday.  We'll keep an eye on things for you! Temperatures also look unsettled - right now we're going with average highs in the low to mid 80s.

Be sure to check us out on the TV side of things for more on the forecast. You can stream us LIVE on the weather app and follow Storm Team 9 on Facebook and Twitter.
