RIGHT NOW: The weather was great out there today for election day in Muscogee County. Check out the 6 PM ET temperatures across the Valley:
We will find plenty of warm weather to talk about in the extended forecast, but tonight look for another comfortable night with lower humidity in place. Lows will be int he 50s and 60s with a clear sky.
ENDING THE WEEK: The chances for rain will be just about too small to mention over the next few days as we deal with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid to upper 80s. Overnight lows will be coming up a bit over the next few nights with mainly 60s in the picture. Humidity values will be increasing, however, so be prepared for it to feel a little bit hotter out there during the day.
MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: The weekend will feature pretty typical weather for late May - highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s with a 10-30% rain coverage each day. The thunderstorms will occur in the afternoon and evening hours, and will be what we often refer to as 'hit or miss' - with many places not seeing anything in the way of rain at all. The best course of action for the weekend is to have a plan for rain just in case, but understand that showers or storms may not last for very long. Have the WTVM weather app handy to track any showers or storms that pop up, but enjoy the mostly dry and warm weather otherwise!
NEXT WEEK: We will keep a pretty similar forecast in place in the latter part of the extended forecast - the rain coverage will increase just a bit by Wednesday and Thursday, but we still will maintain a very summer-like forecast. Look for highs in the upper 80s with a few low 90s in spots.
