MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – Tuesday is going to be a “Georgia Scorcher” for the central portion of the state.

High temperatures are forecast to reach the low-mid 90’s, but high humidity will make it feel even hotter.

  • Wear light-weight and light colored clothing
  • Stay hydrated, drink water
