Second wave of rain on the way for Middle Georgia

More than 2 inches of rain fell Wednesday across parts of Middle Georgia, and a second wave of showers and thunderstorms will roll in this morning.

The storm system expected to move in overnight could bring a threat of straight-line wind damage and more tornado watches or warnings, said Sean Ryan, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Peachtree City.

Today’s storm system could bring another inch or two of rain, Ryan said.

The forecast calls for showers — some of them heavy — and possibly a thunderstorm before 1 p.m. A high temperature of about 64 is expected, with winds of up to 15 mph.

Tonight, there’s a 20 percent chance of showers, with a low of about 37.
