MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – After a busy afternoon across Middle Georgia with showers and a few severe thunderstorms, things will calm down this afternoon as an area of high pressure begins to build in from the west.
Yesterday’s storm system is long gone and today we will see the return of a mostly sunny sky to Middle Georgia. This afternoon high temperatures will top out in the upper 60’s and lower 70’s which is well below the average of 77° for this time of year. While it will be a sunny day, we will also be dealing with breezy conditions as well. This afternoon I expect a northwest wind to continue to flow in with gusts to 25 miles per hour at times. The wind will lay down as we head into the evening and overnight hours where I expect temperatures to bottom out in the middle 40’s under a mostly clear sky.
More sunshine is on the way for your Tuesday afternoon as the high pressure center moves closer to Middle Georgia. Our gradual warming trend begins tomorrow as afternoon high temperatures will be back in the upper 70’s under a mostly sunny sky. Temperatures on Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning will fall into the lower 50’s.
REST OF WEEK.
We stay dry on Wednesday, but rain and storms move back into the forecast late on Thursday evening and into Friday morning as another cold front traverses the Deep South. Some storms with this system could be on the strong side, but it is too early for specifics. As this system evolves we will continue to bring updates.
