More rain Wednesday-Thursday warrants Flash Flood Watch for Middle Georgia

MACON, Georgia. (41NBC/WMGT) – With even more rain in the forecast Wednesday and Thursday, a Flash Flood Watch has been issued for almost all of Middle Georgia (Minus Treutlen, Wheeler and Telfair County).

In the past two days, Middle Georgia has already picked up about 1-2 inches of rain.

Within the next 30 hours, an additional 2-3 inches of rain may fall across Middle Georgia. Isolated amounts of 4 inches may occur.

Because heavy rain will fall in a relatively short time, flash flooding will be possible. Do not pass roads with standing water — remember to “turn around, don’t drown!”

The rainy weather this week has been a result of a couple low pressure systems that developed in the Gulf/along the Gulf Coast.

Thursday morning, the line of rainfall on the back end of the low pressure system to our south will move east bringing a drastic end to rainfall.

By Thursday afternoon, the southeast will start to dry out and clouds will eventually break apart.

Colder air will surge south Friday and temperatures are expected to drop into the low 30’s. The wind will make it feel more like the mid-20’s.

Morning lows are forecast to stay in the 30’s throughout the weekend, though the afternoons will feature warmer weather as high temperatures reach the mid-60’s.
