Strong winds could blast Middle Georgia beginning Wednesday afternoon.

The National Weather Service on Tuesday issued a wind advisory from 2 p.m. Wednesday to 2 a.m. Thursday across much of north and central Georgia.

Tuesday’s low in Macon was forecast for 60 degrees. Wednesday’s forecast calls for rain and a high of 74 but a low of 33 degrees.
