Areas light rain and drizzle will continue to press in from the southwest this afternoon & evening. Temperatures in most locations have held in the low 50s today with the exception of some warmer temperatures in the upper 50s and close to 60° in the southern Upstate.
Overnight, will hold onto the drizzle and have areas of flog developing toward Saturday morning as temperatures stay in the 50s without cooling much lower than that since there will be a solid deck of clouds overhead.
Areas of fog will also be around part of Saturday morning, but ultimately Saturday will turn out to be much different than Friday has been. Southwesterly winds will kick out much of the cool air and return temperatures into the 60s by the afternoon with some Upstate/NE Georgia towns reaching the low 70s. Even though temperatures will be warm, we expect that our sky will stay mostly cloudy.
Sunday and Monday will also be very mild with a chance of rain moving in Monday.
Recent trends on forecast models suggest next Tuesday will be a bit cooler than we originally thought as a push of cool air moves in more quickly from the northwest. We are still calling for a switch to cooler conditions by Wednesday the 16th and then some colder conditions by Thursday the 17th. A second push of cold air is also probable around the 20th to 22nd.
As for any precipitation mixed up with or interacting with this cold... it doesn't look like that will be the case (at the present time).
