MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – Once again we will not be able to make it through an entire work week without rain returning to Middle Georgia.
Make sure that you soak up the sun and dry conditions today because rain returns tomorrow and hangs around for a while. This afternoon we will have a mix of sun and clouds as an area of high pressure to our northeast keeps us dry. Temperatures will be very similar to yesterday afternoon where we made it into the low-to-mid 60’s. Clouds will continue to build in throughout the day today ahead of an approaching wet weather pattern. With the added cloud cover overnight tonight temperatures will hang around in the mid 40’s.
While most areas will stay mostly dry for tomorrow, I do expect to see isolated rain showers on and off across the area throughout the day. We will be under a mostly cloudy sky with temperatures once again being above average in the low 60’s. The average temperature for this time of year is 58°. Rain will become more widespread as we head into the overnight hours tomorrow night.
Rain is headed for Middle Georgia in a big way starting tomorrow. Waves of rain, heavy at times, will soak our area through the middle of next week. With a soaking rain falling for several days in a row, rain totals will be impressive. The heaviest of the rain in my seven day forecast moves in on Friday. On Friday, parts of Middle Georgia could see one to three inches of rainfall. When all is said and done and the rain finally clears out late next week, we could be looking at three to five inches of rain total for a seven day period. Isolated areas could see more as flooding is a concern with this wet weather setup.
