Sunday Weather Alert

The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center has placed most of Georgia and Alabama under an “Enhanced” chance for severe weather for Sunday.

Forecasters say that the main threats are tornadoes, strong winds, hail, and flash flooding.  Chattooga County and Northwest Georgia could see anywhere from 1-2 inches of rain in a short period of time which could enhance the possibility of flooding, especially in flood-prone areas.

The timing of the front is expected to come through the Northwest Georgia area Sunday morning, but is subject to change as winds from the south could affect the movement. The European and GFS models both show the system weakening as the storm moves across Alabama, however the risk for isolated storms and tornadoes is still very high.
