COLUMBUS, Ga. (WRBL) — Conditions will start to cool down tonight as a cool front moves through the southeast, bringing temperatures back into the 80s. These temperatures will remain through next week, with overnight lows will drop into the lower 60s and even the upper 50s on some nights. Our chances of rain remain slim until another front moves through on Sunday evening. This front could bring a few evening showers throughout the region and cooling temperatures into the lower 80s. Conditions will clear back up by Monday morning, and our chance of rain will remain slim as we keep an eye on the gulf.
