TUESDAY WEATHER UPDATE: Thunderstorms possible tomorrow
MACON, Ga. -- A cold front will pass through Middle Georgia tomorrow afternoon that could bring us thunderstorms.
Rain chances move back into Middle Georgia early tomorrow morning. The first round of rain will be associated with a warm front. These systems typically bring light steady rainfall over multiple hours. We will see the rain start off light well before sunrise and last through lunchtime.
The effects of the cold front will begin to be felt during the afternoon. Thunderstorms are expected with the cold front, but severe weather is not likely. Our best time for the stronger storms to move in looks to be around the late afternoon and early evening.
The biggest threat with this front will be the wind speeds. We may see consistent winds around 15-20 mph and wind gusts around 25-30 mph. Rain totals will range between ¼ an inch to 1 inch of rain. Isolated spots may see more if a thunderstorm moves through. Our northern counties will see the heavier rainfall. The rain chances end on Thursday morning with a few lingering showers.
More rain is projected to move in Friday and last most of the weekend before we clear up early next week. As of now severe weather and even thunderstorms for that matter are not expected.
