Conditions will continue to deteriorate as Sally approaches with steady and heavy rainfall likely this late afternoon through the early morning hours. Winds will gust out of the east to around 35 MPH. Rainfall totals will average between 4 and 7 inches, with higher isolated totals possible. Of course, with all this heavy rainfall in a short period of time flash flooding is likely in some areas. Accordingly, a flash flood watch is effect until 8AM Thursday for Georgia counties and until 1 PM Thursday for Alabama counties. Isolated brief tornadoes are possible late this afternoon through Thursday early morning hours. Here’s a couple severe weather tips for this event: If a tornado warning is issued for your area seek sturdy shelter immediately (preferably inside the interior of a home with no windows) and if a flash flood warning is issued for your area please be aware of your surrounding and don’t drive or walk in areas of standing/moving water. After the remnants of Sally pushes through fall weather is on the way for the weekend.
