Rain returns this afternoon, rain and thunderstorms tonight

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) — Clouds are rapidly thickening today as moisture returns. It will be cloudy and windy. An area of ​​low pressure turning west will send rain to our area this afternoon; it will increase from west to east. The rain looks fairly constant and occasionally heavy from the afternoon through tonight. The highs today are mostly in the low to mid 60’s. A rainy night is ahead. It will remain breezy with some thunderstorms expected overnight. Lows in the mid to high 50’s. A cloudy start to Wednesday with a chance of rain during the morning commute, particularly north of Columbus. By the afternoon we should see a mix of sun and clouds. Highs in the upper 60’s and lower 70’s. On the back side of this system, another wave of isolated showers and storms seems quite possible, especially the more sunshine we see ahead. The strongest storms can actually produce hail in the afternoon and early evening due to the cold air in the air! Any sustained rain and storms will end on Wednesday evening. Decreasing clouds are in the forecast Thursday. A comfortable high near 75. Another wave of showers and storms is likely on Friday. Some strong to severe storms are possible before a cold front. The weekend is looking good, with the sun returning and daytime temperatures close to slightly above average. Highs in the upper 60’s Saturday and 70’s Sunday. The lows will be in the 40s by Sunday morning. A warm up is expected early next week when we hit 80 degrees, followed by another chance of rain and storms mid next week. We’re now approaching the peak of the severe weather season, so we need to keep a close eye on any system that moves through here.
