TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Here's your forecast for the next four hours:

Good Wednesday morning!

It's a rainy start to the day across southern Georgia with showers and storms moving from west to east across the area north of I-10. There are some pockets of moderate to heavy rainfall embedded within the rain so be sure to take it easy on the morning commute and pack the rain gear for today. Locally heavy rainfall will be possible today mainly for areas north of US 84 in southern Georgia, where rain totals can exceed 2" through Wednesday night. Coastal regions and areas south of I-10 will see much lower rain chances for today with temperatures nearing 80 along with mostly cloudy skies. A few strong or severe thunderstorms will mix in with times of heavy rain. The unsettled weather will carry into Thursday morning and afternoon as a cold front approaches. Gusty wind and isolated tornadoes are possible both Wednesday and Thursday before we cool down and clear out Friday. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a slight risk for severe storms for both today and tomorrow.

A Flash Flood watch will go into effect in southwestern Georgia early Wednesday morning.

There are a few details to determine when it comes to the exact timing and location for the strongest storms, so we will continue to update the forecast.
