COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Rain and thunderstorms are moving through the Chattahoochee Valley this morning, making for a wet morning commute and start to the work week. We should see a lull in the rain mid-morning before more showers and storms fire-up during the afternoon as a disturbance moves toward the Eastern U.S., keeping our weather unsettled for the next couple of days. With cloudy skies still dominating, highs will hang out in the low to mid 80s for tomorrow before rebounding into the upper 80s and low 90s for the rest of the work week. Unfortunately, the humidity is here to stay, so expect it to feel even more like summertime when we crank up the heat later this week. Rain coverage will drop down to 10-20% for mid-week before going back up to 30-40% by Friday into the weekend.

A similar pattern looks to hold on next week, nothing unusual for summertime in the South: hot, humid, and a chance of hit-or-miss storms each afternoon and evening. We are finally seeing some signs of life in the tropics too; a disturbance in the southern Caribbean has a low chance of development over the next 5 days. We’ve been seeing some hints of the possibility of tropical mischief in the Gulf next week, but still too far out to say anything with certainty. We’ll keep you posted!
