COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Rain chances return to the forecast today and stick around through Thursday, but we aren’t expecting much in the way of rainfall. A series of disturbances passing through the Valley over the next few days will bring off-and-on waves of showers and thunderstorms before we dry out again on Friday. No day will be a washout, so expect periods of dry weather, too. Apart from some light rain showers at times today, the best rain coverage should hold off until tonight into Wednesday morning, followed by another batch of storms for Thursday. Any severe weather looks to stay outside of our area for the most part, with a very low-end risk for some gusty winds on the northern edge of the Chattahoochee Valley. Despite more clouds around each day, temperatures will still run above average in the 80s.
A cold front sweeping through on Friday will knock our temperatures down back to more seasonable levels though (70s in the afternoons and 40s possible by Saturday morning). Our attention turns to a possible storm system moving through the Valley on Easter Sunday that could bring the chance for some strong storms and heavy rainfall (1-2 inches possible). Still some uncertainty on the timing and threats, so we’ll keep you posted in the coming days! For now, expect some thunderstorms around on Easter, at least.
