A weak cold front will pass over the area tonight moving into Sunday early morning with little to know chance for rain fall. Models do indicate a possibility for mist and isolated drizzles but mainly towards our southern Georgia Counties tonight with fog being the most common feature for the entire viewing area. Behind this front is a strong area of high pressure which will keep skies mainly clear of cloud cover into Sunday afternoon and increase temps to the low and mid 70s. Overnight, as the high shifts towards the southeast, clouds will begin to form mainly towards the west with fog returning once again through Sunday night into Monday morning. Highs begin to climb into the mid and upper 70s into Tuesday afternoon with an approaching front out of the northwest. By Wednesday rain chances will return with the models indicating a warm front pass over the southeast. This means rain fall will be light to moderate and last through the afternoon into the evening with the chance of thunderstorms being rather small. Rain looks to subside by Thursday morning with cooler temps returning to the big bend that afternoon (Mid 60s). High pressure will take over once more as we move towards the weekend and will filter in cold air from the north; allowing both our afternoon highs and overnight lows to drop. Expect low to mid 60s during the afternoon starting Thursday and continuing into the weekend along with overnight lows in the mid to upper 30s.
