MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Our next dose of frigid air is on our doorstep with rain preceding it. The rain chance will grow later on this Friday afternoon and evening into Saturday morning.
Friday afternoon highs are forecast to be in the mid to upper 60s across southeastern counties (including Leon, Jefferson, Madison, Taylor, Suwannee, surrounding counties). This warm resurgence may help Suwannee Valley counties see stronger storms, with an isolated severe storm that cannot be ruled out.
If you're in Southwest Georgia, a north wind will keep temperatures from going that high, with forecast temperatures in the upper 50s to lower 60s and possibly even cooler! The rain coverage this afternoon and night will be around 40% with widespread coverage (80%) on early Saturday morning.
Saturday afternoon should clear up after starting cloudy, but breezy north winds will keep the feeling brisk, with highs only in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees. Saturday night, lows may fall below freezing across inland counties.
Sunday, clear and sunny skies will not help warm us up by much. Expect highs to stay around 50 degrees with overnight lows into Monday morning forecast to fall to the upper 20s! No hard freeze is expected, but take the proper precautions when freezing air threatens.
Monday highs are forecast to stay in the 50s, with a general warm-up expected Tuesday and beyond.
Catch me on WTXL Midday at Noon. Chief Meteorologist Casanova Nurse has your forecast at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, and 11:00 this evening.
