Cold front has exited the area and now a ridge of high pressure settles over the the southeast. This has created a strong Northwestern flow between 15 and 25 mph but will begin to subside to a lighter 5 to 10 mph flow as we move into the over night. Being that this flow is coming from the north, it has grabbed hold of some much colder air keeping high today within the upper 50s. Tonight, the area will flirt with the freezing mark so do prepare for freezing conditions and possible frost mainly withing South Georgia. Tomorrow afternoon we keep to mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 50s however with a developing surface low moving eastward from the south central plains we will quickly shift winds out of the south. This will push moisture on shore from the Gulf  and increase cloud cover throughout the Friday with a chance for showers to develop Friday night. By Saturday morning, The low is expected to shift more towards the north however many models indicate a warm-front extending over the Big Bend. Because of this, rain chances are raised to 50% throughout Saturday with mainly light to moderate showers. Saturday night brings a clear up in the rainfall and will drop our temps once again back to the upper 50s got highs and low in the upper 30s and low 40s. New Years Eve is showing signs of another weak front expected to pass through that area and raise rain chances to 20% Late New Years Eve, 30% New Years Day and 40% on Wednesday the 2nd. Temps will bounce between the low and mid 60s for highs with lows in the Low to mid 40s range.
