Our final day of Winter has passed! Spring is almost here! Hooray! Let’s head down south to see if the first weekend of Spring will be awesome:
At 1152pm EDT, the temperature at Atlanta, Georgia was 48 degrees with a light drizzle falling. A mid-level disturbance is pushing through the Mid-Atlantic, bringing rain from SC to VA and eventually snow to portions of the Northeast and New England. Low clouds and fog and lingered in its wake, leaving some drizzle or isolated showers lingering over the Deep South. With weak high pressure in the area, it will take a while to scour out the low conditions Friday morning, possibly lingering into the afternoon before conditions improve. High pressure becomes a bit more prevalent on Saturday, keeping scattered showers and thunderstorms further south along the Gulf Coast. It will still be mostly cloudy, but should at least remain dry to kick off the weekend, and a bit warmer as well.
Also, Spring officially starts Friday at 645pm Atlanta time as the Earth reaches the Spring Equinox. Winter is finally over people!!
