Stormy End of the Week

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A stationary front to our south has left us with unstable weather to finish out the work week. We started off Thursday morning with a cluster of thunderstorms that pushed in from Alabama. This cluster grew stronger as it entered Taylor and Crawford County, and developed into a wide line, with frequent lightning and heavy rain. Some of you may have even woken up to rumbles of thunder. This line of storms will be pushing out of our area in the early afternoon. Our average high this time of year is typically in the middle 80’s, but with all the cloud cover and storms we are seeing today – we won’t reach that here in middle Georgia. Our high today will be 82.

Expect scattered showers and a few storms in the afternoon hours, too. Another cluster is developing already in west, central Georgia. Luckily, things will start to calm down during the evening. For the most part, we should stay dry overnight with mostly cloudy sky conditions, though a late night shower cannot be ruled out. Our temperatures will drop into the middle 60’s overnight.

Another wave of energy will produce more storms for Friday. A surface low pressure system will develop in Alabama, stretching a warm front across the middle of Georgia. This warm front will make our winds southerly, pulling up warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico. Tomorrow will be warm and humid. As the low pressure system moves across Alabama and into Georgia, it will produce another line of active weather. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected for tomorrow again, too.

This system will finally clear our area late Saturday, with the tail end clearing out by early Sunday morning. Next week is shaping up to be a mostly dry one…finally!
