Sunday will be partly cloudy and warm with a 30% chance of a passing shower, especially north of I-85. The rain is due to a cold front, which will reinforce cooler temperatures early next week! Morning will drop back to the 50s starting Tuesday morning.

The mornings will stay crisp and cool, while the afternoons will stay mild and comfortable. Temperatures could struggle to break 70 on Friday depending on where Ian sets up. Models are hinting at the chance for widespread rain through the day, which would keep temperatures well below average.

We’re watching the tropics...

Tropical Storm Ian will track west-northwestward over the next few days; approaching the southeastern Gulf early next week. The storm is expected to make landfall along the Florida Gulf Coast, potentially as a major category 3 hurricane, by the second half of next week. After making landfall, several models have Ian moving closer to North Georgia late in the week. There is a FIRST ALERT Friday for possible rain and wind impacts from Ian.

Here is what one of our long range models thinks Ian’s path will be. Keep in mind, this is one model run, and each run has look slightly different. We show you this as a First Alert to pay close attention to the forecast.

Rain from Ian could move into north Georgia by the end of the week. We will continue to monitor...

We will continue to monitor this forecast, as there is still a lot of fine-tuning to be done with this storm and it’s path. As of right now, rain and some gustier wind will be possible here at home, but how much rain and how strong of winds is still yet to be determined.

Be sure to stay tuned to CBS 46 and keep up with the CBS 46 First Alert weather app as our team brings you updates.
