Our week in the southeast continues, with a trek to central Georgia in the plans.
At 953PM, ET, Macon was reporting a temperature of 68 degrees with overcast skies. Clouds were widespread across the region, with a healthy dose of rain across the southern third of the state, particularly in the southwestern corner. A weak mid-level wave was evident on radar over north Florida, producing heavy rain and thunderstorms from Jacksonville to Fort Myers, as well as the band trailing south of Macon.
The wave will shift off shore and will begin to organize into a more well evolved cyclonic feature. This won’t lead to a real dry flow back filling the pattern, unfortunately. An upper level boundary over the Ohio Valley will continue to induce a southerly flow across the region. The upper level feature will dissipate through the period, but in its absence, surface high pressure will build over the northeastern US. Tomorrow, showers and storms will be general and isolated, attempting to feed into the Ohio Valley, but activity will be more widespread on Thursday as it will be trapped over central Georgia, with moisture unable to continue further north. Severe weather is not expected, as activity will simply be “heat of the day” type storminess.

There won’t be a well organized system around Macon, but the flow, temperature and humidity will mean it should still be pretty active. Look at how busy it is right now.
