Summary: Much drier pattern than we’ve had the last several weeks. Small chance of rain mid-week. Great looking weekend coming up.

Say bye to the rain-chance-every-day setup we’ve had and welcome to a much drier and calmer weather period for the next seven days!

Today, temperatures will warm up to about 68 degrees under sunny skies with not a rain cloud in sight. Winds will be coming out of the north northeast at 10 mph.

Tonight, clouds will start to increase as our low falls to 46 degrees. Winds chill out a bit at 5 to 10 mph out of the north northeast.

Tuesday and Wednesday brings rain back in the forecast.

Very small rain chances creep back into the forecast for Tuesday, Tuesday night and Wednesday as a system works its way through Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia.

Tuesday our high will be about 65 degrees with a 30% chance of rain showers (no thunderstorms). Winds will be a bit breeze at 10 to 15 mph out of the north northeast.

Tuesday night into Wednesday carry the greatest chance of rain, but thankfully this rain does not carry a chance of severe weather. Tuesday night rain chances jump to about 70% as rain is likely. Tuesday’s low will be 49 degrees with winds still coming from the north northeast at 10 mph.

Rain moves out by Wednesday night, as lows drop to 49 degrees under mostly cloudy skies and a 5 pm north northeast wind.

All in all, it doesn’t look like we could see too much rain from Tuesday night and Wednesday. Currently estimating about .25 to .75 inches.
