RIGHT NOW: It's been a cloudy, cool, and breezy Monday across the Valley. Check out the 6 PM temperatures across the area:
Over the last few hours, we've seen the clouds start to thin out just a bit - in fact, here's a view just before 7 PM ET from our ALFA skycam atop the Mountain Creek Inn at Callaway Gardens:
Tonight, we'll forecast a mostly clear to partly cloudy sky with chilly temperatures - most spots should be at or below freezing by early Tuesday morning.
THROUGH MID-WEEK: Highs will see a slow warming trend through mid-week as we see increasing amounts of sunshine each day. Lows will be coldest as we head into Wednesday morning with most spots in the upper 20s and lower 30s.
RAIN CHANCE #1: We'll see a high near 60 on Thursday as clouds increase. There will be a slight chance of rain (a coverage of 20% or less) going through Thursday night into Friday morning, but most folks will be asleep when this comes through. Friday, the sun will pop back out with highs in the mid and upper 50s.
RAIN CHANCE #2: Clouds will be increasing again on Saturday with highs still in the mid to upper 50s, and rain chances will be back with us again on Sunday. Sunday should feature a much better chance of rain - with about a 50/50 coverage. We'll have plenty of time to fine-tune the coverage in the coming days as the picture becomes more clear. I'll still forecast clearing conditions on Monday at this time, with highs both Sunday and Monday in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
