Clouds Out, Sunshine Back!

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

Better weather is in store, and that process begins Friday.  The system responsible for a chilly day of rain and drizzle will move rapidly off the east coast into the North Atlantic.  We will have to wait for the upper air low center to move through before the clouds will break, but that should happen sometime Friday afternoon for most locations.  As the upper wave slides through, we could still pick up a few isolated showers Friday morning.

Thursday's high temperature in Columbus of 52 degrees set a record for the lowest maximum temperature on record for April 4.  That temperature occurred shortly after midnight, and held up all day due to a northeast wind blowing in a wedge of cool air that covered much of Georgia and parts of Alabama.

Saturday's weather should be gorgeous with sunshine and temperatures that will warm back into the 70s, with a warming trend continuing into next week that should give us several days in the 80s.
