Get ready for a rainy day as a cold front is about to significantly change Georgia’s weather.

As the front moves through Monday, some strong to severe storms are possible east of an Atlanta to Macon line.

Brief periods of heavy rain are expected to be the biggest threat along with gusty winds and some lightning.

At 5:20 a.m. Monday, a heavy downpour dropped about .21 of an inch of rain in east Macon in a little over 10 minutes.

Cooler temperatures and a drier airmass will follow the front.

Lows Tuesday will be in the 40s and 50s in Georgia with highs struggling to reach 70 degrees in parts of Middle Georgia Tuesday afternoon.

Macon’s high Tuesday is expected to reach 72 with winds gusting to 15 miles per hour, making it feel even cooler.
