From storms less bold, we get rain and cold.

The cold front that brought a good amount of rain to Southwest Georgia on Tuesday will also bring freezing temperatures to parts in the region Wednesday morning.

Beginning Monday night just before midnight a slow moving cold front brought Southwest Georgia heavy rain.
While this rain event did prompt flash flood watches, most of the area stayed below flash flood watch criteria.
Thunderstorms with this system gave us heavy rain and plenty of lightning but these storms did stay below severe thunderstorm criteria as well.

Rainfall amounts varied across the area but rainfall estimates show that Terrell County may have received nearly four inches of rain from the storms.

Rain from this event tapered off from west to east through the afternoon hours leaving the area with standing water and cool wind from the Northwest gusting over 30 mph.

The air behind the cold front that brought us our showers and thunderstorms is expected to drop temperatures to near record lows Wednesday for parts of the Southeast US.

Albany Georgia can expect a low temperature Wednesday morning in the mid 30's with winds from the Northwest at 10-15 miles per hour.

Temperatures will gradually increase through the week and by Easter Sunday we should make it to at least 80 degrees!
