A high-pressure system surged into the Southeast from the northern latitudes, carrying a deep source of dry air and coolness into the region.  Winds have been decreasing and should become light to calm late tonight.  That will lead to additional cooling for early Friday morning, enough for light-freeze concerns across south-central Georgia and most of the Big Bend region.  Lows will fall into the range of 28° to 33° in these areas, and slightly higher in southwest Georgia.  We’ll stretch the clear sky into most of Friday with limited clouds and highs reaching into the low and mid 60s.  A series of high-pressure ridges and dry-air sources will keep the weather pattern stable and seasonable through the upcoming weekend, with slight warming early next week.  Rain chances stay at zero through Monday, and only isolated showers possible around the middle of next week.
