The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch until 9 a.m. for most of Middle Georgia.
Most of the midstate has seen a 20 degree rise in temperatures overnight and conditions are becoming more unstable.
Only extreme eastern parts of Middle Georgia such as Laurens and Telfair counties are not included in the watch.
Strengthening low pressure over the central United States will generate gusty winds throughout the state today.
An advisory is posted until 6 p.m. as winds of 15 to 30 miles per hour are expected with higher gusts.
With the saturated ground, trees are susceptible and may topple onto power lines.
