Two waves within a very strong storm system will bring a threat
for severe storms and some winter weather to the area.
As the first wave moves through the area tonight, bands of heavy
rain will produce up to 1.5 inches of rainfall over northeast
Georgia with amounts of 0.5 to 1.0 inches elsewhere. The heaviest
rain should end after midnight tonight. While creeks and rivers
will rise to near bankfull, widespread flooding is not expected
at this time.
Strong to severe storms will also be possible late tonight from
around 10 PM to 6 AM. Damaging winds and a brief tornado may be
possible with the strongest storms.
As the second wave moves in from the northwest on Monday,
moisture and lift will combine with very cold temperatures to
allow rain to mix with and change to snow over parts of north and
west Georgia, roughly north of a Canton to Dawsonville to Helen
line. With the cold temperatures aloft, any accumulating snow
will be more likely at elevations above 2000 feet. Temperatures
are expected to fall quickly into the upper 20s and lower 30s
during this time, so any light snow accumulations could lead to
hazardous road conditions. Snow accumulations should remain below
1 inch with locally higher amounts possible in higher elevations
and on west and northwest-facing slopes.
Finally, the cold temperatures and strong winds of 15-20 mph with
gusts to near 30 mph will cause wind chill values to fall into
the teens and 20s Monday night and Tuesday morning. Be sure to
dress appropriately and avoid prolonged
