Triple digit heat indices expected by afternoon

Listen to the content of this post:

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT)- Heat and humidity will combine to make for a steamy start to the work week in our area.


Under a mix of sun and clouds, high temperatures will top out in the middle 90’s with heat index values expected to top out in the triple digits. A few hit or miss showers and storms are possible today. Overnight lows will fall only into the middle 70’s under a partly cloudy sky.


Rain coverage will be on the rise tomorrow as we begin an unsettled weather pattern. High temperatures will still be rather warm in the low and middle 90’s under a partly sunny sky. A strong thunderstorm or two cannot be ruled out.


Scattered showers and storms are in the forecast for Wednesday and Thursday as high temperatures return to the low 90’s. Rain chances and temperatures will hold steady through the weekend.
