Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

Multiple rounds of severe storms produced wind and unconfirmed tornado damage across

Storms push out Wednesday evening as a cold front swings across SWGA ushering in drier and slightly cooler air for a few days. By the weekend hot 90s return with isolated-scattered thunderstorms Sunday into Memorial Day!
