Good Friday! 🙂 AND it's morning! 🙂

It's 4 am, do you know where your thunderstorms are? ☺️ I do!

Again, we are fortunate that this is morning through during the early morning hours... otherwise we might have seen this.

We are probably near our high for today, after the rain passes temperatures will fall later today toward the mid 40's tonight. Highs and lows will be about 20 degrees cooler than they have been the last few days, and the 70's don't return until Sunday. Sunday through Wednesday look awesome with sunny skies and highs near 80. 

I'll keep tracking the weather this morning, but for north Georgia, we escaped the worst of it.

Morning Steve. Riding out the heaviest it’s been all evening, praying my kiddos stay asleep haha. Definitely some heavy rain going on in Dallas!

You had some spotty rotation over that way, but nothing to get excited about.

Let me clarify my question. We obviously have a storm at the moment, it woke me up, but do we have anything bad headed our way here in Dawson County

NWS Atlanta a few minutes ago

Quote

The colder air
associated with the surface front is not in northwest AL and expect
our forecast area to see somewhat of a warm up through early
afternoon before the colder air makes it into north and west GA.
Overnight lows will drop into the upper 30s and lower 40s in the
higher elevation of northeast GA overnight, but do not expect any
wintry precip at this time.  With the upper low over eastern
portions of TN tomorrow could continue to see chances for showers
mainly over north GA.  Temperatures on Saturday will be 10-15
degrees cooler than afternoon high today. Have stayed close to
guidance temperatures through the period.

Highs Saturday

Pretty much just showers and thunderstorms. Right now there is no severe across north Georgia. The severe chances will increase as the day goes on, but by then, it will be past you.  Enjoy the rain... 🙂

Heavy rain in this line of storms. If you're headed to work, watch for ponding on the roadways. This is the radar estimated rainfall through 5 am

Big positive lightning stroke a few miles from my house. 57 million amps. That'll run the lights in your house for a while. 😉

Looks like flooding will become an issue throughout the morning. The line isn’t moving all that much.

Tornado warning alert on my phone certainly got me out of bed a little earlier than I was planning on this morning lol. Rainfall rates were some of the highest I've seen here at my house before. From under a half inch to over an inch and a quarter in just one 15 minute period.

I reported 2.27" to CoCoRaHS for my 6:45 am report. 

Oh... and it was a full moon at 7:13 am this morning. 🙂 In case you were wondering.
