Much of central Georgia topped the 100 degree mark Wednesday.
Triple digit heat has invaded central Georgia. According to Chief Meteorologist Jeff Cox, Macon's official high was 100 degrees Wednesday, making it the hottest June 1st since 1953. It is also tied for the earliest 100 degree day in Macon history.
Other areas that topped the century mark Wednesday include Warner Robins, Forsyth, Thomaston, Sandersville, Reynolds and Dublin.
Our team of meteorologists in StormTrack Central expect the upper 90s to continue for at least the next week, including the threat of 100 degree heat, or worse, by Sunday and Monday.
Drought conditions are also growing worse. The threat for a few afternoon storms is there just about every day for the next week, but Chief Meteorologist Jeff Cox doesn't expect any widespread rain any time soon.
