Good morning!

Some of you have had more rain than you though you'd get and others less, but I don't think anyone has been left out. Ok, maybe the NW corner of the state, sorry guys. I just measured 1.98" (and still climbing) for my CoCoRaHS measurement here but those of you further south are seeing much higher totals. 

It a very busy map this morning ( surface winds/850 mb winds/water vapor/temps/flood warnings in green) with flood warnings all over the place, especially to our south where the rainfall has been the heaviest. The 850 mb wind arrows are the ones wrapping around, while the surface winds are out of the east to northeast.

Here are a few looks at how much rain has fallen and where. These totals have gone up since I grabbed a snapshot but you can see, there has been LOTS of rain.

This is the Atlanta radar estimate

Morning discussion...

Tropical Depression Sally's center is just NE of Montgomery, AL and will continue to push NE through the short term. The rain shield from Sally is spreading over the area and we are seeing inches of rainfall across north and central GA. Areas north of an ATL to AHN line have seen 1 to 2 inches over the past 24 hours with areas from ATL to MCN seeing about 2 to 4 inches. Right now the The highest rainfall amounts in GA have occurred just to the NE of Sally's center across Macon/Peach/Crawford counties. These counties have see 8-10 inch totals over the past 24 hours and with more rain to come I'm sure these values will continue to go up through this afternoon. Sally is still expected to track to the NE with its center expected just N of Columbus by 7 am and then just NW of August by 7 pm tonight. North and Central GA will continue to see moderate to heavy rain through the morning hours with the rain tapering of from West to East through the afternoon and evening.

There will be some drier air that moves into N GA tonight around the backside of Sally's remnants but there will still be some moisture across central and south GA through the short term. Keeping some slight to chance PoP's across the area Friday.

High temps today and Friday will stay in the 70's with lows tonight in the 60's.

With the remnant low of Sally pushing out of the area on Friday, a frontal system should approach the CWA from the N-NW before stalling near the central to south Georgia region over the weekend. This frontal system is really the only source of any PoP's for the CWA as high pressure system begins to builds in over the latter half of the weekend and remain through the long term period.

Looking ahead towards the temperatures, high and low temps will begin to lower thanks in part to that associated cold front. Highs should be around the low 70's through the weekend with lows getting down to the mid to low 50's. For high temps, this is around 8 to 16 degrees below climatological average for this time of year so a taste of fall could be on the horizon. Temps will then slowly begin to warm once more approaching the mid week period.

 

8-16 degrees BELOW normal. Man... I cannot wait! 🙂 Time for a fire! 🙂

This is my weather for the next 7 days... look at those temps. Depending on exactly where you live, yours will be similar, and you can find your forecast on the main page at DaculaWeather.com. Once you find a location from the drop-down box and the forecast loads, if you save it as a favorite/bookmark it will always load your forecast each time you go there.

I'll have more on the rainfall totals and the flooding concerns later. 

Hope you have a great Thursday!

Morning, Steve.  Where can we find rainfall totals for our particular area?  Thanks!

Start with this link. These are the CoCoRaHS reports. These reports come from individuals using a certified rain gauge. I report my rain (or not) daily. All it takes is the purchase of a gauge (~$25-$30) and sign up for an account.

I had a rain gauge, but it was destroyed in one of our storms.  I haven’t replaced it yet! Thank you.
