Finally, an opportunity for rain

Posted: Updated:

Thunderstorm chances will increase over the next few days as a front drops southward into Georgia and Alabama. So far, Columbus has seen no rain since the month of July began, on average our second wettest month of the year. 

The front will move into northern Alabama and Georgia by late Wednesday, helping to trigger showers and thunderstorms in the warm and unstable air south of the boundary.  The front will stall somewhere nearby on Thursday, which should bring the most coverage of rain and storms to our area on that day.  The scattered thunderstorms could bring significant, though variable, rain amounts to much of the state. 

With the old boundary nearby, we'll have another chance for scattered storms on Friday, then diminishing coverage over the weekend.

Daytime highs will get only a slight break from the recent heat thanks to additional cloud cover and showers.  Humidity will be on the rise as moisture pools in the warm air ahead of the oncoming front.
