MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – Rain has returned to Middle Georgia and it will last through tomorrow evening.
Widespread rain moved into our area just after midnight and will continue to move through in waves as we make our way through the afternoon. It is going to be a wet commute to and from work today as an area of low pressure to our southwest will continue to feed in moisture from the Gulf of Mexico that will allow for heavy downpours at times. With an already saturated soil, minor flooding is not out of the question for areas that get stuck in a heavier shower. An additional one to two inches of rain is forecasted through tomorrow evening. Temperatures this afternoon will make it into the low 60’s under a mostly cloudy sky while overnight temperatures will struggle to cool off and will hangout in the upper 40’s.
Rain, rain, and more rain. Friday is going to be another wet day in Middle Georgia as the remnants of the low pressure continue to feed in rain showers. Coverage of showers will be decreasing as we move throughout the day on Friday ahead of a cold front that will clear the soggy weather out of our area. With the increased cloud coverage tomorrow, temperatures will top out in the middle 50’s.
Once we get rid of the rain late tomorrow, a clearing trend will begin just in time for the Christmas holiday weekend travel. Travel across the southeast will be great this weekend! There is a chance of light rain showers returning overnight Sunday night into Monday morning. On Christmas Day there is also a slight chance of seeing an isolated shower, but temperatures will be in the low 60’s!
