RAIN & STORMS EXIT TO THE EAST MIDDAY; DRIER TONIGHT & THIS WEEKEND… We transition from active weather to a drier, cooler weather pattern today with rain likely to exit our area to the east by 2PM on this Thursday. There are some lingering showers and thunderstorms around this morning, especially on the eastern side of our region. These showers and storms will move to our east into southeast Alabama and the Florida Panhandle region by early afternoon. We dry out later today into Friday. Sunshine is set to return tomorrow and extend into the weekend! Unfortunately, this will be a brief dry window of time as rain is set to return in the early part of next week. Let’s look at all of your forecast details.

RAIN CLEARS OUT EARLY AFTERNOON… I expect all of the rain to be to our east by the time we get to 2PM. The ground will still be quite wet later this evening, but if you have baseball or softball plans, those will be without falling precipitation. Temperatures this afternoon will be in the mid- to upper-60s by 2PM.

SEVERE WEATHER RISK TO OUR EAST TODAY… The Storm Prediction Center maintains a low-end severe weather risk today for parts of southern Georgia, much of Florida east of our local area, and southern parts of South Carolina. If you are traveling to the east today, please be aware of the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms.

MAINLY SUNNY FRIDAY & SATURDAY… Mostly sunny skies are expected on both Friday and Saturday. There could be a few lingering clouds around Friday morning, but those should be gone by 10AM. High temperatures will be around 65 on both day with morning lows around 40 degrees.

FEW CLOUDS ON SUNDAY… Cloud coverage will begin to increase from the west on Sunday with temperatures rising to around the 70 degree mark by early afternoon. This forecast for the weekend and early next week are remarkably similar to exactly what happened this last week with clouds increasing Sunday ahead of rain into the next week. Regardless of cloud coverage increasing this Sunday, there still should be plenty of sunshine in the morning and early afternoon hours.

SHOWERS RETURN MONDAY… Isolated showers will be possible on Monday ahead of our next area of low pressure that will move in from the west. Temperatures will surge into the 70s on Monday as warm, humid air from the Gulf of Mexico moves in, meaning winds will be out of the south.

HEAVIER RAIN & STORMS POSSIBLE TUESDAY… Early forecast guidance points to another round of showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday into Wednesday of the upcoming week. There is a chance that some of the storms may be on the strong side, but we’re still several days out from this potential event, thus it is too early for any type of specifics. This is the month of March in the Deep South, meaning we should expect to have multiple active weather days in the forecast similar to what we have had and what we will have. Nothing out of the ordinary for March as this is part of our primary severe weather season that runs through the end of April.
