Weekend Weather: Turning colder, some rain possible Sunday
MACON, Ga. - As quickly as our weather pattern shifted Thursday to Friday, we'll see another dramatic change from Friday into the weekend.
A weather pattern known as the wedge will set up across the eastern third of the United States. In this weather pattern, an area of high pressure will set up in the northeast. That will result in a northeasterly wind flow into Middle Georgia. When that happens, cold air from Canada streams south along the eastern side of the Appalachian Mountains.
Saturday's forecast will be one of increasing clouds. Highs will be in the mid to upper 50s.
Sunday's weather will be dominated by cloudy conditions. Areas north of Macon are likely to see some mist and drizzle. Those areas may struggle to reach 50 degrees by the afternoon.
Areas south of Macon see less dramatic impacts from the wedge. If you are south of Macon, you can still expect cooler weather than we had on Friday, but it won't be as cold as areas north of Macon.
This shift in weather patterns will be short-lived. A weak cold front will move through early Monday, eroding the wedge, allowing sunshine and warmer temperatures to return to Middle Georgia.
