Rain Chances Return

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - A weak disturbance moving through the Southeast has brought some showers to the Valley for Thursday morning, but we’ll still see some sunshine mixed in by midday. The best chance of rain today will be along and north of Highway 80, though can’t rule out some isolated showers in the southern half of the Valley either.

Expect 20-30% coverage of showers and storms today and Friday with partly sunny skies. Hope you enjoyed the drier and pleasant air that we started the week with because it will be gradually fading away heading into the weekend and definitely next week. A dominant high pressure ridge set to build in over the next several days will push our high temperatures well above average into the low to mid 90s by next week. In the meantime, mid-upper 80s on tap through tomorrow before we inch closer to 90 over the weekend. The changing weather pattern looks much more reminiscent of summer versus springtime with hot days, a mix of sun and clouds, and low rain chances (10-20%) each day. Next best chance of rain past Friday looks reserved for Sunday and Monday, but again more so isolated coverage with any developing storms. We’ll keep you posted—just brace yourselves for the coming heat!
