Occasional upper-level clouds are streaming in, preventing a totally clear sky, but the cloud cover won’t have a heavy impact on overnight temperatures trends. Near-term clouds won’t cause rain concerns, either. Lows will fall into the mid 30s in the coldest pockets of the eastern Big Bend to near 40° for the coast and in southwest Georgia, slightly below average. Thursday, partial cloudiness is anticipated as highs rise into the lower 70s. Weather conditions begin to take a turn to the more unsettled side late Thursday; the upper clouds are associated with a flow of air aloft that will cause an approaching front to stall over the Southeast by Friday and through the upcoming weekend. Waves of heavy rain will be present along the boundary, causing a local flooding concern during the weekend, especially in areas in south Georgia already saturated by previous rain events. Rainfall totals late Friday through next Tuesday can possibly exceed three inches, particularly around the tri-state region and in interior south Georgia.
