As high pressure to our south moves offshore Tuesday, temperatures will warm with above normal temperatures expected Wednesday and Thursday.

A front that caused chaos in the South is expected to barrel into South Florida on Sunday, elevating the chance of strong winds, thunderstorms and tornadoes. In this case, that begins with just being aware that severe storms are possible in our region roughly in the 3 midnight time period, though not everywhere constantly. This is when we will likely see the best chance for severe storms. And, with a saturated ground and top-heavy trees that have leafed out, it's not impossible that a couple of trees are uprooted this afternoon.

The German said such a mistake could happen to anyone making such split-second decisions. We were quicker in the last race (in Bahrain ) but they (Ferrari) were able to hold on.

"Good Saturday morning! A large, slow-moving storm system is bringing winter is back to the area with a vengeance this weekend". Temperatures in Columbia are predicted to range from 80 to 50 degrees, but are expected to drop down to a high of 66 Monday, according to the NWS's website. Most of the day will be dry for many, but in west/northwest Georgia, you'll need to be on alert for storms as early as Saturday afternoon. Isolated weak tornadoes are also possible. All of those leftover snow showers have fizzled out, as the storm system pushed east overnight, but the skies will stay fairly cloudy throughout the day. Into the weekend, our next storm system and cold front will approach.

The winds will start ramping up Sunday morning, and it will be warm and very humid. Sustained winds of at least 40 mph.or gusts of 58 mph or stronger may occur. Cool temperatures in the beginning of the week will give way to a warming trend midweek through the end of the work week. Expect some clearing by Sunday afternoon with temperatures in the mid-60s.
