A warmer and rainier weekend is coming
We’re starting the weekend with several consecutive impact days, because we’ll see more widespread rain, not just today, but moving into Sunday and Monday. We have a cold front that will start moving into our area later today and will continue throughout this weekend. So, if you’re trying to get outdoors, I would say early in the day would definitely be a better time to do it. Temperatures will peak in the spring in the upper 60s, even reaching 70 degrees with southwest winds anywhere from about 10 to 20 mph. This brings us such warm weather today. But again, that’s going to be accompanied by some wet weather as we move throughout the day now with the clock winding down, if you’re trying to get the kids outside or maybe take the dog for a good walk, I would say the first part of the day looks good to go. You may avoid a shower or two as we get closer to lunchtime and early afternoon, but we’ll still see a fair amount of dry time. There is a better chance of more widespread rain later today, especially after sunset. This moisture will stick around Saturday night into Sunday. And in fact, if you’re trying to get out the door on the earlier side on Sunday, you’re probably going to church seven, eight, nine, even 10:00, that moisture will be sticking around. So you may want to allow a few extra minutes on the roads. At least the first part of Sunday. Then, we’ll be in for a brief lull in activity Sunday afternoon before widespread precipitation kicks in Sunday night into Monday, which could give us a chance for some low-end severe weather. Right now, it looks like the main threats will be stronger, and thunderstorms will likely be fairly isolated for now, especially areas across northeast Georgia, but even parts of western North Carolina are trapped in this low end. Severe weather threats for Monday. So, yes, we have a lot of things to watch this active weekend ahead of us. We are monitoring the potential for localized flooding as well as some stronger storms that could develop toward the end of this very wet and active pattern. for us. So we mentioned the fact that we will see a short lull in activity on Sunday afternoon. As of now, once we get closer to Sunday night, this moisture is becoming more widespread again, extending into the area throughout Monday, which could also bring some thunderstorms. So we’ll be watching that closely throughout Monday. So, we basically have three days where we could see heavy amounts of rain, as well as a severe low-level weather threat. Now, after all is said and done, as far as the rain continues, we could see anywhere from an inch to over two and a half. Up to three inches of rainfall. Now, until the end of this wet weather pattern for us, as of now, it looks like things will start to clear up once we move into Tuesday, but some cooler air will start to flow in, which could bring some flurries across the Tennessee border into North Carolina at some time. Early Tuesday morning. Elsewhere, it looks drier afterwards. So day four looks like this. We have Impact Days released today, tomorrow and Monday. Today, you will still see a lot of dry time, but this afternoon and evening, we will start to see more scattered showers that will begin to develop, and that will continue throughout the day Sunday. And again on Monday, with storms possible on Monday, we’ll be watching that closely. Next up, we have lots of bright things in store Tuesday through the end of next week, and if you have any plans for Valentine’s Day, anything is possible.
