Winds gusting to up to 40 mph on Monday prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Wind Advisory until 6 p.m. for central Georgia northward, including Macon and Warner Robins.

Sustained winds will be from the west at 15 to 25 mph.

Temperatures are also expected to drop below freezing Tuesday morning, and a freeze warning is in effect from 2 a.m. until 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Budding and flowering vegetation could be affected.

Weekend rain brought the Ocmulgee River slightly out of its banks for about 12 hours in Macon.

The river rose over flood stage of 18 feet Sunday evening, crested at 18.36 feet, and receded below flood stage by 6 a.m. Monday.
