COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Friday is off to an absolutely gorgeous and comfortable start with plenty of sunshine and below average temperatures. Highs this afternoon will only top out in the low to mid 70s with upper 70s back by Saturday afternoon. Another cold front will sweep through the Valley today, bringing another dose of cool, dry air as we head into Mother’s Day weekend. Saturday morning will be chilly in the 40s, but the afternoon hours will be pleasantly mild with temperatures back in the upper 70s.

Saturday will also keep the trend of mostly sunny skies in the forecast, but we’ll transition to partly cloudy skies on Mother’s Day ahead of a more unsettled weather pattern next week. Sunday will also run warm again with highs in the mid 80s and a little more moisture making its way back into the Southeast (AKA the humidity will be on the rise a bit). Though we don’t have any severe weather concerns at this time for next week, expect showers and storms around at times beginning Monday through the middle of next week with the best rain coverage likely Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. By NEXT Friday, we’re seeing hints of another dose of dry sunshine and cooler than average temperatures.
