Columbus, Georgia (WRBL)-

Weather conscious: Idalia’s outer bands invade all of our southern counties. The outer bands will trigger showers and some storms before the rain band shifts north.

This is happening from the Idalia traffic center and on this trajectory we can expect strong gusts of wind and occasional torrential downpours with thunderstorms.

Wind speeds along this line reach speeds of up to 40mph, which can be dangerous given recent storms and the already weakened branches and root systems of stressed trees.

The main danger will be strong wind gusts of up to 40 miles per hour, which will occur on the western side of the tropical system. 35-45 constant winds southeast of Columbus.

The forecast for tornadoes is very low and occurs mainly in the south-east of Georgia. The air behind this system is cooler and less humid, despite some persistent showers and some storms in the region due to a weak low looming behind Idalia on Friday morning…Drier and sunnier for the weekend.
