It may be December, but it feels more like spring. Several cities across Georgia came close to record high temperatures Monday with highs in the 70's. Meteorologist Jason Hess with the National Weather Service in Jacksonville says the warmer weather is due to a high pressure system off the coast.
Forecasters are warning of dangerous heat for much of Georgia today. The National Weather Service has put in-place a heat advisory that goes into effect from 11 Tuesday morning until 5am Wednesday. High temperatures will range from the mid to upper 90s statewide on Tuesday, with some triple digit readings possible. The northeast Georgia mountains may stay in the upper 80s for highs. There is the chance of a stray afternoon shower or thunderstorm.
