Ready For Some Rain?

COLUMBUS, Ga. -

We've been lucky to enjoy two terrific days of spring weather, in a week when some have time off from school and work.  In keeping with our normal spring tendency for big, sudden changes in the weather, it looks like we're about to turn wet again.

A system is now coming out of the Rockies that will make a coast-to-coast journey across the southern tier of states, eventually generating a surface low in the Gulf of Mexico that will spread rain into our area.  Our best chances will come Wednesday night through Thursday, though showers may linger into early Friday.  The low will remain to our south, so we should be able to avoid any severe weather, although a thunderstorm can't be ruled out on Thursday.

The low will pull in some chilly air to accompany the rain Thursday and Friday, but once the system is past and we are able to clear out, a major warming trend will get going over the weekend, likely to last into next week.
