COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The band of rain that we have been tracking through the area should move out of the Valley by 6 or 7 PM ET.  Lingering showers are still possible this evening, and winds will stay gusty as well!  We have seen gusts more than 30 mph today in spots, with reports of 40 mph+ winds as the line of showers was moving through.  Winds will generally be gusting between 10 & 20 mph later tonight and overnight.

The big story now is the arrival of the cooler and drier weather - that will lead us to a great Friday and fantastic weekend!  Keep up with those forecast details on the TV side of things starting at 5 PM ET.
