Storms, severe weather expected Wednesday

A rapidly developing storm sweeping across the Southeast should bring strong thunderstorms to the Augusta area late Wednesday morning.

The storms are part of a larger system that will cover most of the eastern U.S., said Mike Proud with the National Weather Service.

Wednesday will bring the worst weather as a cold front moves through the region in the late morning or early afternoon. These storms could produce strong wind gusts and have the potential to bring tornadoes, he said.

It will not be a good day for travel anywhere in the eastern U.S., Proud said.

The high Wednesday is expected to be around 60 degrees. The night will be breezy, but Thursday should be drier and cool, with highs in the mid 50s, according to the weather service.

Monday and Tuesday’s wet, mild weather brought fog to much of Georgia and is believed to have contributed to a fatal traffic accident in suburban Atlanta, the Georgia State Patrol said.
