RIGHT NOW: The weather was very nice out there today with highs back in the upper 70s and even the lower 80s in some spots - near record breaking heat across the Valley. Check these 6 PM ET temperatures:
Tonight, lows will drop back into the 40s in most spots as clouds increase.
RAIN CHANCES? Check out the latest southeast radar view showing a steady connection of showers from the Gulf of Mexico through parts of Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas:
The southern and eastern counties in the viewing area will see rain chances for Tuesday and into very early Wednesday morning, but I don't think the rain will be widespread elsewhere. The best chances should come during the overnight hours Tuesday going into Wednesday. highs will be in the 50s both days with more clouds than sun Tuesday, but look for clearing and cooler conditions by Wednesday.
THANKSGIVING AND BEYOND: Weather for Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday looks wonderful across the area - we're expecting highs in the mid to upper 50s in most spots both days with a sunny to mostly sunny sky. Lows will drop back into the low to mid 30s going into the morning hours on Friday, so for any of the shoppers out there getting an early start, it would be a smart move to dress for the cooler temperatures! For Saturday and Sunday, we'll begin a warming trend with highs in the middle 60s and a good supply of sunshine each day. The forecast for the big college football rivalry games - Alabama/Auburn & Georgia/Georgia Tech - looks great too!
