Showers and thunder are much less numerous this afternoon and evening thanks to the suppression of the moisture source and a break in the active upper-level wind pattern. Most of south Georgia should be rain-free for the night ahead, while any spotty showers present near the Big Bend region should diminish by late tonight, leading most locations into a partly cloudy to mostly clear sky overnight. Lows will drop into the lower 70s, near average for this time of year. A northwest to west wind will tap into the dry air source over the Southeast through the first half of Friday. Highs will rise into the middle 90s, reaching warm-enough levels to trigger afternoon thunderstorms which will favor eastern counties. The rain pattern returns to near or above-average levels for Saturday and Sunday, then tapers back down to seabreeze-driven afternoon storms for most of next week.
