Clear skies, cooler temps in store for this weekend

POSTED: June 1, 2012 11:30 p.m.

Expect beautiful weather in Gainesville this weekend with some cooler temperatures today.

The National Weather Service in Peachtree City forecasts lower temperatures today with a high near 80 during the day and a low in the upper 50s at night.

A cold front passed through the area Friday bringing much drier air. The result is lower temperatures, which began Friday night with lows in the mid 50s.

“With the colder front moving through, it’s the drier and cooler air behind the cold front,” Trisha Palmer, National Weather Service forecaster, said of the factors bringing in the cooler temperatures.

The cooler temperatures are below normal for our area this time of year. The normal high is usually 86 degrees. Palmer said we will be “5 to 8 degrees below normal for both high and low.”

The temperatures will go back up a little Sunday with a high in the mid 80s and a low in the lower 60s. Both today and Sunday will be mostly sunny with few clouds.

“We don’t have any chance of rain, so it will be a beautiful weekend,” Palmer said.

Gainesville had little rainfall Friday with a total of about 0.18 inches.

This didn’t do much to help the levels of Lake Lanier. According to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the lake was 1,064.88 feet above sea level Friday.

We’ll have a chance at more rain next week starting Monday afternoon.
