The freeze is officially behind us! With the last Freeze Warning expiring this morning, we can now set our sights on climbing temperatures and can give our plants some fresh air again. Expect mostly sunny skies through mid-afternoon today, as high pressure sits just northeast of the region. Clouds will build a bit going into the evening commute, but no need to worry about any rain for now. Highs today will fare a little better than on Monday, but will still check in below average in the mid 50s to low 60s.

Clouds will continue to increase tonight as a disturbance tracks across the Tennessee Valley. Most of the night will be dry, followed by showers rolling in across the mountains after 5:00 AM. Lows will remain above freezing tonight, settling into the upper 30s across the mountains and low 40s upstate.

Light rain will be widespread across the mountains during much of the Wednesday morning commute, while upstate locations begin the day on a dry note under cloudy skies. You’ll want to grab the rain gear no matter where you live though, as some showers could stray farther south across the Upstate and northeast Georgia from time to time. The clouds and showers will hold temperatures back a bit again, keeping highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. It’s Thursday where we really turn the corner into a bigger warmup!

Thursday brings us back to a mix of sun and clouds, and back to temperatures we experienced very often in February. Highs will top the low and mid 70s on Thursday, and we’ll set our sights on 80 across the Upstate on Friday! Aside from a few morning showers on Saturday, we’ll hold course into the weekend with highs scaling back just slightly to the low and mid 70s both days.
