The next 24 to 36 hours will feature periods of rain.  For this evening, a few heavier pockets of rain are possible in portions of south-central Georgia, but many of us will experience a steady, light to moderate pattern of rainfall.  Rain totals may reach up to one inch now through early Thursday morning.  As the stronger central low-pressure system approaches from the west Thurday, we'll get a pick-up in rain and storm intensity by sunrise, and, with a little bit of additional warmth and a stronger southerly wind, some storms have the chance to reach strong to severe levels.  Gusty winds, isolated waterspouts and tornadoes, and spotty hail are possible with the strongest activity.  Lows tonight will be in the 60s, and highs tomorrow will reach the low to mid 70s.  Conditions gradually clear Friday, leading to slight cooling to seasonable levels over the weekend with sunshine.
