Soaking Rain for Friday; Improvements for the Weekend

Friday Weather on the Go

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Starting off Friday with a steady, soaking rain that naturally just makes you want to crawl right back into bed—we don’t blame you! Fortunately, the widespread rain this morning will break up into just light, scattered rain showers this afternoon before we dry out overnight. A stalled-out front draped over Georgia and Alabama—the culprit behind today’s wet weather—will finally crawl southward later today, ushering in a dose of cool yet seasonable January air again for the start of the weekend.

Temperatures will fall into the upper 30s and low 40s tomorrow morning with the weekend afternoons fairly average in the upper 50s and low 60s. Lots of sunshine around tomorrow, but account for more clouds around if you have any plans on Sunday, a day which will transition us to a more active and warmer pattern to start off next week.

Apart from some isolated showers late in the day on Sunday, our next best shot of rain arrives Monday (right now, we have 40-60% coverage across the Valley) with some thunderstorms in the mix too through Tuesday morning. Another rainmaker coming through mid-week will bring an extra shot of showers for Wednesday and Thursday before we look drier heading into NEXT weekend. Monday and Tuesday look the warmest in the 70s, but back in the 60s for highs by the middle of next week. Freezing mornings should remain out of the forecast until possibly next weekend, but even that doesn’t look like a guarantee at this time.
