The flood watch has been expanded and extended. It has been expanded to include more counties. The watch was originally in effect for Dade, Walker, Catoosa, Whitfield, Murray, Floyd, Bartow and Gordon Counties. The new counties added today are Cherokee, Dawson, Fannin, Gilmer, Haralson, Lumpkin, Paulding, Pickens, Towns, Union and White counties. The watch has also been extended until Saturday morning.
We have already had a significant amount of rain. More rain will continue to move in. This will add more runoff into already swollen creeks and streams.
That wedge will be tough to break on Wednesday. We will remain cool for much of the day. We may actually warm up during the evening hours Wednesday as a southerly flow takes over the shallow layer of cold air at the surface. The rain will continue. It will be off and on during the day Wednesday.
We warm to near 70 for Thursday and Friday and into the weekend. We hold on to a 70% chance for showers and possible thundershowers for the end of the week. The rain chance continues for the weekend, but it goes down to 50%. We hope to see more breaks in between showers for Saturday and Sunday.
We expect to have a dry day on Monday. Then showers return again on Tuesday.
