Morning showers are likely Sunday as a cold front sweeps through the region. We’ll see decreasing clouds through the afternoon. Temperatures will hover in the mid to upper 50s during the daylight hours.

Behind the front, the coldest air of the season so far moves into the region. Cold high pressure settles in for the first half of next week.

Expect colder temperatures heading out the door Monday morning. Lows will tumble to near 30 with “feels like” temperatures in the mid 20s. Highs will only top out near 50 under a sunny sky. We’ll wake up to temperatures on Tuesday in the mid to upper 20s. Highs will struggle to get out of the upper 40s by the afternoon.

Slightly warmer weather moves in for Wednesday. Lows will bottom out in the mid to upper 20s and rebound into the low to mid 50s by the afternoon under a mostly sunny sky.

Seasonable air returns on Thursday. Lows will dip into the mid 30s and highs soar to near 60 under a partly cloudy sky.

Even warmer air arrives by next Friday as high pressure continues to slide to the east. Highs will warm into the upper 60s with slight rain chances by afternoon and evening.

Our next cold front pushes through South Georgia next Saturday. Ahead of it, showers are likely during the morning hours. Highs will warm into the mid 60s and lows in the low 50s.

Colder air once again returns behind the front.
