Columbus, Georgia

Back to back days in the same state, but I can assure you that our outlook is going to be so much different than the one for Augusta.

At 1151AM, ET, Columbus was reporting a temperature of 47 degrees with clear skies. There were still some lingering clouds in the wake of a strong cold front that swept through overnight over the southeastern part of the state, but cool, dry air was pumping into the western portion of Georgia. This cooler, drier air mass will remain in place through the day tomorrow.
The next major system for the country will start merely as a clipper swinging through the Midwest. It will charge through the upper Midwest tonight and really start to get organized over the upper Ohio Valley through the day tomorrow. Overnight Sunday into Monday, the system will reach its southernmost point in its journey, and will begin to begin to round the trough back to the northeast. The trough will be sharp, however, and the upper level segment of the feature will continue to drive to the southeast. A mostly inactive cold front will move through Columbus early in the day, introducing some cloudy skies. The low will explode as it hits the warm Gulf Stream, and will begin to wrap moisture into the upper levels of south Georgia, keeping things cloudy Monday evening, preventing a massive heat loss over night.

So FIO is the only outlet to have rain in the forecast. Interesting. You can see the remanants of the previous system right here on the satellite image.
