Holly Springs and Hickory Flat residents will soon see rain — and mild temperatures — return this week.
After a cold weekend, a chance of rain will linger tonight and into Tuesday night. However, sunny skies will return on Wednesday and a warm-up will move into the city on Thursday, and will remain in the area through Sunday.
"A low pressure system will impact north and central Georgia Monday night into Wednesday," according to the National Weather Service's hazardous weather outlook. "Minimal instability Tuesday will allow for a slight chance of thunderstorms ahead of the associated cold front."
