Sally Drenching the Region
We are feeling the wrath of Sally!
Several inches of rainfall already coming down in portions of the area. Unofficial totals have at least 1.5″ falling so far in Muscogee County and in the Auburn area, but over 3″ in parts of Barbour County and we’ll add to those totals through early tomorrow afternoon as more rainfall is anticipated. Flash flooding remains the greatest threat through at least Thursday.
There is a MARGINAL to SLIGHT risk for severe storms through tomorrow morning. The main concern will be damaging winds over 40 mph that could bring down trees and power lines (already seeing power outages across the viewing area in Georgia and Alabama), but counties south of Muscogee could see some tornado activity. We’ll continue to monitor that situation.
Looking ahead in the forecast, a cold front coming out of the west/northwest will bring a nice change to the area. Cooler/drier air will make it feel fall-like this weekend through at least the early part of next week.
