We're continuing a stretch of near average temperatures this weekend, which is a nice change of pace from either the extreme cold or extreme wet days we've had in past weekends. Conditions overnight stay mild dropping into the mid 40s. Tomorrow will be even warmer than today with temperatures reaching the mid 70s and mostly sunny skies. This is all due to a high pressure system sitting off the eastern seaboard funneling warm, Gulf air into the area ahead of a cold front that still is over the Central Plains. This means that Monday will have similar conditions to Sunday remaining above average in the temperature department. Late Monday night, the storm system will approach bringing widespread rainfall and embedded thunderstorms. This will push out of the area before noon on Tuesday leaving in its place dryer, cooler air. Tuesday we see temperatures only reach the upper 60s with the dryness lasting through the weekend. Temperatures remain fairly steady with highs in the upper 60s and lows in the upper 30s to mid 40s around the Big Bend and South Georgia. By next Saturday, we finally see temperatures rise to the mid 70s for another beautiful weekend setup.
