SYNOPSIS – The Wiregrass received some much needed rain today as a line of showers and thunderstorms evolved throughout the region this afternoon. Lingering showers to the South can bleed into our area throughout the evening while most areas will be left mostly cloudy into tomorrow. While similar wide coverage is not expected Saturday, isolated showers and thunderstorms can extend into our area from the Southwest tomorrow morning and afternoon. Skies will start to clear Sunday as drier air from the East moves in, allowing more sunshine to raise temperatures slightly to the lower 90s for the rest of the Labor Day weekend. Mostly sunny skies are expected to last for the rest of the week after Monday while temperatures gradually rise to the middle and upper 90s.
