Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 3:33 AM EDT May. 26, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Record heat expected through mid week...

An extended period of unseasonably hot temperatures will continue through
the middle of next week across north and central Georgia.

Widespread high temperatures in the mid to upper 90s are expected,
with some locations exceeding 100 degrees, especially along and south
of a Columbus to Macon to Warrenton line in middle Georgia. These
temperatures are around 15 degrees above normal for late may. In
addition, little relief is expected during the night as temperatures
only fall into the 70s in many locations. In addition, little to no
precipitation is expected in the area until possibly the end of next
week. The unusual heat this early in the season has already
resulted in broken records and additional records are likely to be
broken in the next several days with all time monthly records in
jeopardy as well.

Please take extra precautions for the heat by remaining hydrated,
avoiding prolonged exposure to the sun, and limiting strenuous
activities when spending time outdoors. Also, "look before you lock",
and don't leave children or pets unattended in a hot vehicle.
