The transition day this week comes on Tuesday when a storm system moves across the southeast and the associated cold front moves through the Chattahoochee Valley. Both Monday and Tuesday breezy conditions will be present across the area, and on Tuesday you may notice it is muggy, thanks to the southerly flow bringing in more humid air from the gulf. On Tuesday we do have the potential to see rain and storms at times, with some of those storms being severe, meaning we have the potential to see strong winds and heavy rain.
