That cloud cover will help things to feel a little cooler this afternoon with highs and heat indexes largely in the mid 80s. A few pockets of sunshine are expected throughout the day, however don’t expect any clearing. Ambient winds will blow out of the east-northeast at around 5-12 mph, however gusts could reach as high as 20 mph. The UV index for today in Macon is about 8.2, so sunscreen is still necessary despite the added cloud cover for anyone spending ample time outdoors.


During the afternoon and evening some isolated showers and a couple of small thunderstorms are also likely. The best odds for thunderstorm activity will be in the western counties (along and west of I-75), however showers and/or a thunderstorm can happen anywhere. Most of the region will stay dry despite the increased rain chances.
