WEATHER: Wet Weekend Leads to Flash Flood Warnings, More Rain to Come




According to the official tally from the National Weather Service, the airport in Albany received almost 3 inches of rain over the weekend.  Although some rainfall amounts were higher locally, that’s about what was predicted before the storms rolled through.  The southwest Georgia area saw multiple flash flood warnings and brief power outages Saturday and Sunday, and the National Weather Service is predicting a bit more rain in the first part of the week.
