We are watching upper level energy and a strong cold front headed our way which will tap into warm, unstable air ahead of it causing showers and thunderstorms.  

Live 5 News Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh says some of the thunderstorms heading toward the Lowcountry could be strong or even severe. 

A wind advisory has been issued for Allendale, Bulloch, Jenkins and Scriven counties from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wendesday. 

The Storm Prediction Center currently has us in a slight risk which we will monitor and update.  

There is a small risk of isolated tornadoes with this weather system.  

Winds will also be an issue Wednesday and Thursday as the front moves by with 15 to 25 mph speeds.

The weekend looks nice at this point but cooler 50's.

According to the Associated Press, the system is responsible for seven tornadoes in Louisiana and Mississippi, and killing at least three.
