A huge slow moving area of low pressure is spinning over northern Georgia and Alabama. We’re on the south side of this low giving us a steady wind from the west/northwest; that’s a cooling wind. Lows this morning smashed a few records, Apalachicola for exampled tanked to 49°; the old record was 53°. Many others flirted with the upper 40s under clear skies. Much of Monday will be mostly sunny with the northwest wind firmly in place; highs will warm into the low 70s. Bottom line, it’ll be comfortable but about 10° or more below average. Tonight, a batch of isolated to scattered showers will pass by with a weak disturbance. Most rain will be done around or shortly after lunch Tuesday. Temperaturewise, we’ll start Tuesday on the cool side of the pillow in the low 50s. After some early cloudiness, skies will clear by the afternoon with highs in the mid and upper 70s. Wednesday to Friday we’ll gradually warm up into the 80s, in fact, end of the week highs will push into the upper 80s. Work week rain will be isolated at best with our next chance at significant rain coming Saturday.

Be safe and enjoy your Monday!
