Rain, Rain Go Away
For our viewers in North Georgia and Athens, we had some pretty nice weather this past weekend. While humid, the weather was still nice with sunny skies and a much needed break from all of the rain. Unfortunately, that rain returns when a stalled out low pressure system sits over the area for the next few day, causing some concern for flash flooding. As we go into the overnight hours for Athens, we expect to see thunderstorms taper off in the evening and change into a steady rain, with tonight's low going into the upper 60's. For tomorrow, we'll see more thunderstorms and rain continuing in our area, and our high will be in the upper 70's and could reach to 80 degrees.
For North Georgia, It will follow the same conditions as Athens. Going into the overnight hours, thunderstorms will turn into a steady rain, with tonight's low going into the middle to upper 60's. For tomorrow, thunderstorms and rain showers will continue, with tomorrow's going into the mid to upper 70's.
Over the next few days, the stalled low pressure system will continue to sit in our area, bringing the threat of flash flooding. Rainfall totals are expected to be in the 3-6 inch range, with localized heavier amounts possible. Make sure you have a way to receive important alerts this week and if you see flood waters, "Turn Around, Don't Drown!"
