Good Evening,
A nice day today will give way to rain and mild temperatures through the weekend

Rain begins tonight and spreads throughout Georgia lasting through the day on Saturday.

There will be the threat of severe storms mainly during the afternoon and evening period, but right now it is still questionable if the severe threat develops. Main threats include damaging wind gusts, isolated brief tornadoes, and heavy rain.

As far as rain totals are concerned Middle and South Georgia will see the most rain through Monday. Some areas could see 3-5″ of rain over the weekend and into next week.
