Friday morning wind picks up with gusts up ahead of a cold front and low pressure system racing across the south.
A Wind Advisory is in effect with gusts as high as 45-50 MPH. Secure any loose objects around the house to prevent debris from flying around.
Some isolated power outages are possible.
Severe weather chances increase through the morning and afternoon hours.
The timing of storms looks to start lunchtime for the west with storms progressing across our area through early Friday afternoon.
Storms will be isolated and move from southwest to northeast throughout the morning hours while the system progresses west to east.
Within these one or two of these storms, there is a possibility of severe winds, and heavy rain.
Prepare now as we keep a close eye on the timing of this next round of stronger storm possibility throughout the day.


A few showers and storms move out of Taylor County and counties to our east during morning hours.
Mostly cloudy conditions stick around through Saturday afternoon for the southeast with some clearing across south-central Georgia.
Temperatures will FINALLY be much cooler with highs topping out in the upper 70s/ low 80s and lows dropping to the 40s for the end of the weekend and beginning of next week.
