Cooler weather and lots of rain over weekend

Most of Southwest Georgia, Southeast Alabama and the Florida Big Bend were under a flash flood watch on Sunday and through Monday morning, after anywhere from 2-4 inches of rain fell on parts of the region.

2.9 inches of rain were measured at the Decatur County Public Works Department between Friday afternoon and Monday morning. No roads had to be closed down.

The Flint River at Bainbridge rose to about 19.8 feet on Friday, Nov. 6, still well short of its flood stage of 25 feet. The U.S. Geological Service’s weather gauge on the Flint River also recorded 2.9 inches of rain.

The rain clouds also brought cooler weather with them, with the high temperature only reaching 70-72 degrees Fahrenheit on Sunday and Monday. However, as the rain goes away, warmer weather will return.
