There is no doubt about it…it has been a hot week here in Central Georgia! We have been in the 90s every day so far and today will be no different. We hit 91 on Monday, 95 Tuesday and Wednesday, and had a record high of 96 yesterday. Brace yourself for lower 90s this afternoon...May I recommend a dip in the pool? :)
I know Georgia is supposed to be hot, but not this hot this early! The average high for the middle of May is 82 and even average highs in August are only in the lower 90s!
But don’t worry, I have good news! We’ll cool back down into the 80s over the weekend. On top of that, we have a good chance of rain tomorrow. The only down side is that we could have some strong to severe thunderstorms Saturday afternoon into Saturday night. We are hoping that severe threat doesn’t pan out for us, because all we really want is the rain! So Mother Nature, turn on the air conditioning and the water faucet…we are ready!!
