Record highs with showers today, much colder temperatures to follow

Frosty start to your weekend


Cloudy skies with a few showers possible as highs climb to near record levels.

Sea breeze showers with storms possible this afternoon.  Expect this activity to move east, off the coast this evening, as a cold front dives into SE GA.  The cold front will then move southeast across the area through early Thursday.  The best potential for strong storms with this feature will be over SE GA this evening, with the activity decreasing in strength as it passes through during the night.

Temperatures will be well above normal today, as some inland locations could reach 90.  Thursday morning a few lingering showers possible in our southeast zones until about 8-10 AM.  Breezy north-northwest winds Thursday with a few gusts to 30 mph.  Partly to mostly cloudy skies in the morning will clear out from northwest to southeast with much cooler max temps with highs in the lower to mid 60s northwest zones and upper 60s to lower 70s southeast zones.

Thursday night, becoming breezy under clear skies.  Expecting temps to drop to the upper 30s and lower 40s area-wide. Wind chills Friday morning, due to northerly winds of about 10 mph, should be in the 30s most areas by sunrise.
