Heat and high pressure hold steady in Middle Georgia

Listen to the content of this post:

Good evening,
The heat across the south has been hanging in with high pressure in place just to our north. We saw just a few isolated showers that were mainly prompted by the sea breeze off the Atlantic.

High pressure continues well into the end of the week and will strengthen through the rest of the week. What this means for Middle Georgia is continued heat and mostly dry conditions through the end of the week.

While we might need the rain, October is typically one of our drier months, there is not any rain in the forecast until Sunday. The good news with dry weather on the way is a pretty great forecast for the Georgia National Fair! It will be hot for the start of the fair, but mostly sunny skies are expected for opening weekend!
