COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - As we cling onto the spring-like warmth for one more day, we’ll have some showers and gusty winds. Then, cooler air returns. The drier air lasts for a day or two before rain makes a come back.

Showers likely at times on this Thursday morning with gusty winds. Rain ends around midday or early afternoon as it turns sunnier by mid to late afternoon. Warm with highs in the low to mid 70s.

We start off in the mid 30s to low 40s Saturday morning and end up in the 50s during the afternoon. It will be a pretty gloomy looking weekend. Most of Saturday looks okay for outdoor activities, but showers are expected to start inching up from the south later in the afternoon and evening. The best chance of rain during the day will be south of Columbus. By Saturday night and Sunday, steadier and heavier rain at times will move through the area thanks to rich moisture coming from the Gulf of Mexico. Forecast highs range from the upper 50s north to mid 60s south.

Rain drops will be few and far between at first this weekend, but rain chances increase later...

Back to seasonably cool and dry weather for Monday. One more system looks likely Tuesday into Wednesday giving us another decent chance of rain. After that, I think the rain becomes less frequent again and we settle into a cooler pattern.

Two more systems give us decent rain chances: this weekend and then around Tuesday/Wednesday...
