A surface front is dropping south through the state today, allowing for scattered showers and storms, mainly across South Georgia, but many locations will remain dry. Rain chance today are in the 20-30% range this afternoon. The sky is mainly sunny and hazy, courtesy of the smoke from the Canadian wildfires.
ACROSS THE USA: Widespread smoke from Canadian wildfires continue to bring hazardous air quality levels across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, including major metro areas along the I-95 corridor. Locally heavy showers and thunderstorms, isolated severe, may develop across the northern Rockies and High Plains.
TOMORROW AND THE WEEKEND: Much drier air drops into Middle Georgia tonight, allowing for great weather tomorrow and Saturday; on these two days we expect a mostly sunny sky and lower humidity. Rain chances will be near zero, and nights will be refreshing, with many spots reaching the 50s during the morning hours. On Sunday, moisture levels rise and we will bring back the chance of scattered, mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms with a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will remain in the upper 80s and low 90s.
NEXT WEEK: A persistence forecast is what we will go with for much of the week. Partly sunny days with the chance of a passing afternoon thunderstorm in scattered spots. By the latter half of the week, it looks like a warming trend will begin as a ridge builds in over the Deep South, meaning hotter temperatures as mid 90s are possible.
IN THE TROPICS: All is quiet in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and the open waters of the Atlantic. With no development expected through the upcoming weekend.
