Albany -  Just over an inch of rain has fallen at the WALB studios this morning.

Hail was reported to the National Weather Service in the Bronwood area of Terrell County.

Widespread damage was reported in Taylor County, where at least one tree was blown down and in Crawford County, one house lost its roof, and at least twenty trees were reported knocked down.

There was also a report of tree damage and hail in Peach County. In Harris County, a power pole was blown down, and Marion County, numerous trees were blown down.

The NWS says the wind gusted to 43 knots at the Albany Airport, a possible reason that WALB's local radar was knocked out. Engineers are working on the problem.

Winds at 50 knots were reported at Moody Air Force Base.

The National Weather Service says that an upper level disturbance will move southward across the area today, and produce scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms may be strong to severe with damaging winds and large hail possible.

This disturbance will move south of the Region tonight, with the scattered showers and thunderstorms gradually ending from north to south across the area this evening.  

Wednesday through Monday, drier air will move in from the north behind the disturbance on Wednesday, and generally only isolated afternoon sea breeze Showers and storms are expected through the end of the week, with fair and warmer weather over the upcoming weekend.
