MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – We will keep scattered showers around Middle Georgia throughout the early evening hours, but drier weather returns tomorrow.
Waves of rain have been moving through Middle Georgia since early Thursday morning and that trend will continue into the late afternoon today. Yesterday many places in our viewing area received anywhere from half an inch to an inch of rain. Isolated areas to our west in Taylor, Macon, and Crawford Counties received closer to an inch and a half of rain as heavier showers fell in these counties yesterday morning. While the heaviest of rain has moved out of our area, there is still an 80% chance of rain this afternoon. With an area of low pressure moving through Middle Georgia I expect for wrap around moisture to hang with us throughout the day until a cold front pushes the dreary weather out just in time for the weekend.
The National Weather Service issued a Wind Advisory for all of Middle Georgia until 7 pm tonight as wind gusts this afternoon could get close to thirty miles per hour.
We could not have asked for better weather for one of the busiest travel days of the year. The sun returns to Middle Georgia tomorrow as temperatures make it into the mid 50’s. Overnight low temperatures will fall into the low 30’s.
A chance of seeing a light shower returns Sunday afternoon, but coverage will not be great. I am calling for a 20% chance of seeing an isolated shower late Sunday into early Monday morning. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day appear to be mostly dry with high temperatures running in the low 60’s.
