December begins with mid-fall temperatures

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – Temperatures across Middle Georgia will top off in the lower 70s later on this afternoon. The first morning of December began with a healthy dose of high level clouds and chilly temperatures. We will see a handful of these clouds hang around throughout the day today, however there will be plenty of sunshine mixed in. With wind blowing out of the southwest this afternoon at 5-10 mph along with the sunny skies, temperatures will continue to warm, this time topping off in the lower 70s. The cloud cover will clear during the later hours of daylight with the majority expected to be gone by sunset. Despite the lack of insulation due to cloud cover overnight, however, our low temperatures will continue to climb, this time only falling into the lower 40s. One or two locations may see lows drop slightly below 40 degrees. Overnight the wind will also shift more to the west with speeds around 5 mph.
Picture for December begins with mid-fall temperatures

Warmer temps returning as November ends

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – A shift in the wind direction will allow temperatures to climb well above average to begin December. The final morning of December was one of if not the coldest for many locations in Middle Georgia. Temperatures for most of the region fell below freezing with some falling as low as 27 degrees. Fortunately the winds were calm out the door, limiting the wind chill on a clear but cold morning. Temperatures will quickly warm up, however; highs today are going to be between 5 and 10 degrees warmer than yesterday with more locations leaning towards the 10 degree mark, topping off in the mid to upper 60s. A large reason for the warmup is continued clear skies and a wind shift from the northwest to the west-southwest. The west-southwest winds will add little bits of moisture and heat to the Georgia atmosphere. The added moisture will be more noticeable tonight as a thin layer of cirrus clouds moves in overnight, adding a bit of insulation to Middle GA. This will result in low temperatures Wednesday morning falling into the upper 30s and lower 40s instead of the lower 30s.

Cool conditions kick off the final days of November

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – A weak cold front has brought cool temperatures to the Peach State for the final Monday of November. Sunday night began with plenty of cloud cover over Middle GA. These quickly cleared out as the overnight hours went by, leading to clear skies by sunrise this morning. Temperatures got relatively chilly, bottoming out in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Wind chills were about 5 degrees cooler than that in most locations. The wind, coming in from the northwest overnight, will predominantly blow from the north-northwest today with breezes hanging in the 5-10 mph range. Gusts could reach speeds in excess of 15 mph at times today. High temperatures this afternoon will reach the upper 50s with a couple of more southern cities climbing into the lower 6os. Our skies will remain clear through the day as well as tonight. The winds will back off to about 5 mph overnight tonight with a slight shift back to the northwest. Combined with the clear skies, low temperatures will fall below freezing across Middle GA by Tuesday morning.

Sunny and warm weather returns this week

It was a cool day across Middle Georgia, behind a cold front that passed through yesterday. Highs today only warmed to the low 60s for much of the area, but warmer weather is on the way for the week. Highs pressure continues to hang out with us, keeping it clear...

Warmer conditions returning ahead of Thanksgiving

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – After a strong cold front left wintry chills around Middle GA on Tuesday, warmer conditions are returning heading into Midweek. This morning was the coldest morning in Georgia so far this fall. Everywhere in Middle GA fell below freezing at some point before sunrise this morning. There is a good chance that everywhere in the state north of here did as well. The good news is the frigid conditions are not going to last as temperatures should reach 50 degrees around the region by noon. High temperatures this afternoon will be returning to the lower 6os for most of the region as well. The winds, now having shifted to the east-southeast, will be a lot calmer than yesterday. However with a bit of southerly flow now added extra moisture is being added to the atmosphere, allowing for more cloud development. Our clouds this afternoon, however, should be limited to a few cirrus clouds overhead. More cloud cover will fill in overnight as the wind shifts to the southeast. Low temperatures will remain chilly, but the southeast winds and bit of clouds should allow most locations to have lows back at and above freezing.

Sub-freezing temperatures have arrived for the first time this fall

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – The effects of yesterday’s cold front are finally being felt around Middle Georgia as temperatures near freezing kick off Tuesday. The sun is back in all of its glory today as clear conditions hang around after following another cold front. Today will likely be the coolest day seen this week around Middle GA as temperatures only climb into the mid to upper 50s. Wind from the north-northeast around 5 mph will continue to feed cooler air into the Georgia atmosphere. This will shift to the east-southeast overnight, allowing some moisture to begin to build back up. Temperatures overnight will drop to the lowest point so far this season with the majority of the region expected to fall below freezing. The skies will remain clear all night long heading into Wednesday.

Cold front moves through to kick off Thanksgiving Week

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – A cold front kicked off Thanksgiving Week in Middle GA with some rain and lots of clouds. There will not be very many days this week that see much cloud cover. In fact, today will likely be the cloudiest day we have all week in Middle GA and it won’t even be cloudy all day. Rain came with the cold front early with many locations around the region beginning to see it ahead of the sunrise. The light rain persisted through the sunrise hours as the cold front continued to push southeast. The effects of the cold front will begin to be felt today as strong winds from the northwest (10-15 mph G 20+) will stick around through the afternoon hours. High temperatures will be on the warmer side compared to most of the week, topping off in the mid to upper 60s. Sunshine will return for most of Middle Georgia by the late lunchtime hours with the clear conditions sticking around through tonight. Low temperatures will approach the freezing point with a couple of locations reaching or dropping below it. Winds overnight will blow out of the north-northwest at about 7-12 mph.

Cooler and drier conditions returning ahead of the weekend

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – Cooler weather and pleasant conditions are returning to Middle GA thanks to another cold front. The winds have shifted from the southwest to the north-northwest for most of Middle GA as the overnight hours arrive. Eventually they will take over the entire region, pulling in cooler and drier air heading into Friday morning. The winds will be pretty breezy too; sustained speeds will be from 10-15 mph with gusts over 20 mph. Low temperatures will fall around 10 degrees in most locations when compared to this morning bottoming out in the lower 40s. A couple of locations may see temperatures fall into the upper 30s.

Clouds returning Thursday; rain chances low but still there

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – The next cold front is arriving in Georgia Thursday, bringing clouds and some rain with it. Clear skies will persist through the rest of the evening and into the overnight hours. Continuous wind out of the southeast and south-southeast through the overnight hours will allow low temperatures to climb upwards of 10 degrees warmer than this morning, bottoming out in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Cloud cover will begin to fill in after midnight, also allowing for the warmer low temperatures by insulating the surface. When the morning arrives, however, there should still be opportunities to see the sunrise.

Temperatures will continue to warm into the middle of the week

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – Early fall temperatures are returning to middle Georgia heading into the middle of the week. Only a few clouds filled in over Middle GA today with the skies clearing completely shortly after sunset.

The lows overnight will warm a few degrees compared to this morning in response with most locations bottoming out in the lower 40s.

Clear fall weather opens the third week of November

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – Sunny skies and cool temperatures are carrying into the start of the new week. The cool conditions from the weekend are continuing into Monday. Northwest wind at about 5-10 mph with gusts around 15 mph will continue to feed the Georgia atmosphere with cool and dry air. This pattern carried through the weekend, but will change beginning tonight. For this afternoon, however, high temperatures will climb into the mid to upper 60s, a few degrees warmer than the day before. Temperatures will not stay very warm long however, with temperatures in the mid 40s returning not long after sundown. Tonight’s lows will be slightly warmer than the past few days however thanks to the light change mentioned above. That would be a change in the surface wind direction from the northwest to the southwest, allowing moisture to return to the Georgia atmosphere. Low temperatures around Middle GA tonight will be in the upper 30s to low 40s.

Sunshine returns ahead of the weekend

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – Sunshine and cooler temperatures are left behind in the wake of another cold front. A handful of clouds were still overhead this morning left over from last night. These allowed the morning temperatures to remain rather warm, beginning the day in the mid to upper 50s around Middle GA. Wind shifted from the west-southwest to the northwest during the early morning hours, and it will remain that way through most of the day today. High temperatures will still be warm in the wake of the cold front in the low to mid 70s. Today’s highs, however, will be the warmest we see until the middle of next week. A trough in the jet stream has anchored itself over the Southeastern US and will stick around for the next few days. With the exception of tonight and Sunday the wind will predominantly blow out of the northwest, keeping the air dry and temperatures cool. For tonight, however, the wind will return to the west-southwest, allowing low temperatures to fall into just the mid 40s.

On and off showers for Veteran’s Day

The cloud cover will remain overhead for the most part as well, though a few small windows of sunshine will be possible this afternoon. Despite this, temperatures will remain warm topping off in the mid to upper 70s. Southerly wind is playing a large roll there along with the overnight cloud cover; temperatures out the door this morning were close to 30 degrees warmer than they were Monday morning thanks to the excess insulation and moisture.

Cloud cover to increase further ahead of rain tomorrow

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – Warm conditions will stick around Wednesday with plenty of clouds filling in during the evening. Plenty of clouds moved in overnight Tuesday around Middle GA, and some of them helped with a spectacular sunrise that got the morning going. These allowed morning lows to warm up just a bit thanks to the extra insulation. These clouds will clear for most of the region by lunchtime today as temperatures will climb back into the upper 70s this afternoon for our highs. Wind blowing gently from the south is adding plenty of moisture to the Georgia atmosphere. It may feel a bit muggy later this evening as clouds begin to fill in once again, only this time there will be some mid and low level clouds as well. Rain chances will also begin to increase overnight, though Middle GA shouldn’t see any precipitation until after midnight. Low temperatures overnight and into tomorrow morning will continue to increase, this time falling only into the 50s. Showers will become more widespread and numerous ahead of the sunrise.
