Forecast calls for cold, dry, gusty wind

Spring started last week, but the weather in Georgia isn’t quite obeying.

Advisories from the National Weather Service warn of cold and wind that will continue through Wednesday morning.

The wind advisory that covers most of Middle Georgia warns of steady winds up to 25 mph, and gusts up to 35 mph, through 9 a.m. Wednesday.

That wind will be cold, with lows in some of the state reaching the mid-20s. Middle Georgia is under a freeze warning because of that, also through 9 a.m. Wednesday. Macon’s low was forecast at around 27 degrees early Wednesday.

Separately, the National Weather Service issued a freeze watch for most of Middle Georgia for Wednesday night through Thursday morning. Macon’s overnight low will be around 32 degrees.

The National Weather Service said the cold front will linger into the weekend, and it could spawn thunderstorms late Thursday through Saturday.
