MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – A high pressure system managed to keep Middle Georgia dry and hot last week, but that will not be the case this week.
Instead, a low pressure system is developing in the Gulf of Mexico. This system is going to push tropical air into the southeast as it slowly moves northward the next few days.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be in the forecast every day following Monday.
Rain totals through Saturday night could range from three to five inches.
Monday will be the driest day this week. Clouds will mix with sunshine, and temperatures will reach the low 90’s.
With a prolonged chance for rain/storms in the 7-day, temperatures will also drop. Highs this week will be closer to average (84 degrees in Macon).
