NWS: Wet Weather, Possible Severe Storms Expected this Week




The National Weather Service in Tallahassee is predicting a week of wet weather for southwest Georgia with some chances for isolated flooding and severe storms.  Here is the full release:
The area will remain in a wet pattern with high rain chances through the remainder of the week and this will lead to our main threat this week – the potential for isolated, minor flooding. In addition, there is a marginal risk for a few strong storms across southeast Alabama and portions of southwest Georgia today.
Rainfall
  • Amounts: Through Friday, widespread amounts of 2-4 inches with 4-6 inches along the coast from Destin to Panama City to Apalachicola (see attached graphic). Isolated higher amounts are possible.
  • Impacts: Localized minor flooding, in particular across more urbanized areas or areas with poor drainage; a few rivers may also reach action stage
 
Strong Storm Potential
  • Marginal Risk

  • Main Threat: Gusty winds

  • Timing: Best chances during the afternoon and evening

  • Location: Southeast Alabama and portions of southwest Georgia (see attached graphic)

  • Note, widespread convection and cloud coverage may help to limit strong/severe storm potential today

  • Although chances are on the lower side, a few strong storms with gusty winds cannot be ruled out for the remainder of the week
