Morning lows in the mid-40s to low 50s are anticipated throughout north and central Georgia as the day starts.
Light winds and temperatures in the upper 40s to low 50s are forecast across the region as the day begins. Patchy fog and low stratus may probably form in this region, most likely in central Georgia, due to the weak winds, dewpoints around the anticipated low temperatures, and lack of low-level cloud covering at this time.
Over Georgia, weak ridging has developed, and it will advance eastward as an upper-level trough burrows its way into the Southeastern United States
As this trough advances into the ArkLaTex, the upper-level flow pattern over Georgia is changing from almost zonal to southwesterly in direction. At the surface, soft surface troughing and modest westerly to southwesterly surface flow will combine to provide another warm afternoon in the forecast.
As thick clouds build in front of the low-pressure system, temperatures are expected to rise roughly 12-16 degrees above climatological normals, keeping highs somewhat colder than they were yesterday.
According to the National Weather Service, high temperatures are forecast to be in the low 70s north of the Fall Line and the mid to upper 70s south of the line today afternoon.
After swinging into the Mississippi River Valley today, the trough axis is predicted to travel eastward into Georgia over the nighttime hours.
As a result of this system's poor characteristics, the significant effect during the nighttime period is expected to be enhanced cloud cover throughout most of the forecast region, as well as a few light showers in far northwest Georgia and northern Alabama.
In the early morning hours of Sunday, numerous minor disturbances will transverse the southwesterly flow ahead of the trough, resulting in isolated to scattered showers in sections of far north Georgia throughout the day.
The possibility of daily instability cannot be completely ruled out, and a rumble of thunder or two cannot be out. On Sunday, the major fetch of Gulf moisture will continue to the west of the forecast region, which will assist in restricting both the quantity of precipitation and the extent of shower coverage.
Even though temperatures will remain much higher than usual on Sunday afternoon, temperatures will trend downward by a few degrees as a cloud covering increases.
