MACON, Ga. — A Heat Advisory is in effect for all of central Georgia from noon-8 p.m. for feels like temperatures up to and over 105° Wednesday afternoon.

Since the storms will be hit or miss, not everyone will get rain. Those who do, could see storms on the stronger side with strong winds, and small hail.

We're going to continue our summertime pattern with the chances for afternoon storms and high in the 90s each and every day. Heat index values will easily be over 100 during the afternoon hours through Saturday. 

We may get a little heat relief next week with an incoming cold front. The models have been a little wishy-washy on whether or not the front actually makes it through Central Georgia. If it does make it through, the biggest impact will be widespread rain late Saturday into Sunday and lower humidity into next week.
