THURSDAY MORNING UPDATE: Isolated severe storms possible today
MACON, Ga. -- A cold front will pass through Georgia later today bringing us heavy rain, isolated severe thunderstorms and potential for strong wind gusts.
The rain is not expected to pass through the mid-state until the middle of this afternoon. Initially we will not see thunderstorms developing, but once the front gets a tad closer to us in the evening a few strong to severe thunderstorms could pop-up.
Our main threats with this system will be heavy rain and strong wind gusts along the front. Hail and severe thunderstorms will be isolated and tornadoes look unlikely as of this morning, but as always can't be completely ruled out.
The rain should end a bit after midnight and we may see some impressive rain totals considering that we are only expecting rain for around eight hours. We could see more than 1/2" of rain.
We will be tracking the rain and thunderstorms all day today. Stick with us both on-air and online for the latest on our severe weather chances.
