Peachtree City Ga. -- A heat advisory remains in effect until 6 PM EDT this afternoon, including the cities of Athens, Covington, Milledgeville, Macon, Swainsboro, Warner Robins, Dublin, Americus, Cordele, and Vidalia.
A heat advisory has been issued for portions of northeast and central Georgia today generally east of a commerce to Covington to Thomaston to Americus line.
This area of Georgia will likely see heat indices in the 105 to 110 degree range during the afternoon hours. In addition nighttime low temperatures will be very warm, generally in the mid to upper 70s.
The current spell of hot weather and high humidities is being caused by a large high pressure system lodged over the eastern portion of the nation. These conditions could possibly persist through Thursday.
A few spots could have some afternoon thunderstorms which would provide some brief cooling. an increase in the chance of thunderstorms is currently indicated for Friday and Saturday which could provide some additional relief from the heat.
Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Chris swirls in eastern Caribbean, getting stronger. Two months after it began, this year's Atlantic storm season could be about to get its first hurricane. Forecasters say Tropical Storm Chris should hit the 74-mile-an-hour threshold late today or tomorrow.
The storm blew into the eastern Caribbean this morning with winds of nearly 60 miles-an-hour and is likely to gather strength as it moves toward the Virgin Islands. Puerto Rico could be getting some high winds and heavy rain from it today.
People on a number of Caribbean islands have stocked up on supplies including gas, food and candles. Long-range forecasts put Chris somewhere between Florida and waters south of Cuba by the end of the week. It is moving West-Noprthwest at 10 miles per hour.
Chris is expected to be a Category 1 hurricane, situated just above Cuba by Saturday. Just it continue its path, it could bring some badly needed rain to South Georgia, as Tropical Storm Alberto did in June.
