Rain will take over Middle Georgia for rest of the week
MACON, Ga. -- A low pressure system over the Gulf of Mexico will bring some much needed rain to the mid-state this week.
The rain started early Tuesday morning south of Warner Robins. Most of the early showers have been light without any lightning. However, this afternoon we will see an uptick in both heavy rain and thunderstorms. Severe weather is not expected in the mid-state any day over the next week, but a stray strong thunderstorm cannot be ruled out.
Middle Georgia will not see many changes in the day to day forecasts over the next week. Rain and overcast conditions will persist throughout the work week and the weekend.
The biggest thing to watch with this tropical low will be the rain totals. The latest weather models are showing our area receiving between 2 and 4 inches of rainfall between Tuesday and Sunday. Thankfully this rain will be stretched out over more than just a few days so flash flooding looks unlikely.
Some moderate to strong winds may also be a factor this week. Today, consistent winds will be between 5-10 mph with occasional wind gusts upwards of 20 mph around Macon and Warner Robins.
