Monday to Come Up Chilly

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

The delightful weather we have been able to experience this weekend is expected to take a little break on Monday.

The same cool air mass will remain in control of our weather, but will be aligned a bit differently.  The center of the surface high will anchor itself and intensify over the Canadian maritime provinces, extending a long reach along the U.S. eastern seaboard.  That will serve to pump up the flow of cool air well south into Georgia and some of Alabama, a typical "wedge" setup for us.

Easterly winds will also bring low level moisture our way from the Atlantic, resulting in clouds and possibly even a light shower or two.  The cool breezes and the clouds will keep high temperatures shy of 70 degrees in many areas.

The wedge will ease up on Tuesday and temperatures should be warmer with more sunshine and a subtle shift of the wind to southeast.  The warming trend will continue the rest of the week with temperatures climbing back to near normal within a few days.  A weak system could bring showers starting late Wednesday.
