Some of your weekend outings with Mom could get a little soggy, but the rain may move out by Sunday in time for the family cookout.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to roll in later today and tonight with a high around 80. The chance of showers continues through Friday night into Saturday with temperatures in the mid-70s.
A frontal system will move through Georgia throughout the day, according to the National Weather Service forecast.
Meteorologist Laura Belanger with the Weather Service office in Peachtree City says the best chance for rain in Northeast Georgia comes tonight through the day Saturday, but it likely will clear up by Mother’s Day.
“It’s primarily going to be interesting on Saturday,” she said. “The latest models show the better chance of rain in the northern half of the state through Saturday afternoon, then it tapers off. The highest chance of rain in the Gainesville area is Saturday, and by Saturday evening drops to 20 percent into early Sunday.
“There’s a lingering chance of rain into Sunday, and it should stay cloudy through Sunday morning.”
For Mother’s Day on Sunday, we should see a mix of sun and clouds and a diminished chance of showers as the day goes on and a high of 82.
Though the front could bring some thunderstorms, Belanger said forecasters don’t expect any serious weather conditions to result from this system.
