COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Drier air will crawl its away across parts of the Valley today, but will struggle to reach much farther south than Columbus. The front separating the drier air from the muggier air to the south will stall out, and help up our rain chances Wednesday through Friday again as more moisture returns from the Gulf, too. In the meantime, today, any developing showers and storms should be confined to southeast Alabama and southwest Georgia, so mainly south of Highway 80. Highs will still top out in the low to mid 90s today, but the northern half of the Valley will be treated to more of a “dry heat” than the thick humidity we’re typically used to.
Humidity will be on the rise again though in the coming days as the drier air recedes, and muggier air returns from the coast. A disturbance moving into the Southeast closer to the weekend will also usher in more cloud cover for Thursday through Saturday, keeping highs down in the upper 80s in some spots. Sunday and Monday look drier with just a few isolated showers possible, but next week and beyond, our forecast hinges upon the potential for any tropical system to move into the Gulf of Mexico-- and of course, it’s trajectory once doing so. Still too far out to fine-tune anything though.
