COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Have the umbrella and WTVM Weather app with you this week—an extended period of wetter than average weather kicks-off today. Expect periods of rain and thunderstorms through at least the middle of the week thanks to a developing area of low pressure over the Florida Panhandle. As we always do this time of the year, we’ll monitor this area for any potential tropical development. Regardless, rain coverage looks highest today and tomorrow (60-80%) and drops down a touch Wednesday into Friday (40-60%). With more rain and overcast skies in the forecast each day, highs will struggle to get any warmer than the low to mid 80s through mid-week.
Par for the course, the muggy air will be unrelenting, so even though temperatures will trend below average, the humidity will still make it feel uncomfortable outside. The pattern looks a little drier by the weekend with more standard summer weather expected (20-40% coverage of hit-or-miss storms), plus turning hotter with more sunshine in the mix as highs push back into the low 90s. This trend looks to carry into early next week, too.
