We’re at Puckett’s Mill in Dacula. How’s the weather looking here?

Lumpkin County appears to have been spared anything severe thus far...we had a lot of thunder earlier and now a lot of pouring rain but that's all.

Crossing my fingers that it will move on soon. I don't relish the idea of doing my Friday errands in the middle of a monsoon.  :classic_tongue:

MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0398
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0809 AM CDT FRI APR 19 2019

AREAS AFFECTED...GEORGIA AND NORTHERN FLORIDA/EASTERN PARTS OF THE
FLORIDA PANHANDLE

CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 86...

VALID 191309Z - 191515Z

THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 86 CONTINUES.

SUMMARY...
ISOLATED SEVERE/TORNADO RISK CONTINUES, AND WILL SHIFT
GRADUALLY EAST/NORTHEAST WITH TIME.  NEW WW MAY EVENTUALLY BE
NEEDED.

DISCUSSION...
LATEST RADAR LOOP SHOWS A SUBTLE UPTICK IN CONVECTIVE
INTENSITY WITHIN THE BAND OF STORMS EXTENDING FROM EASTERN
TENNESSEE/WESTERN VIRGINIA/WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA SOUTH TO EASTERN
PARTS OF THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE.  WHILE THE STRONGEST STORMS REMAIN
WITHIN TORNADO WATCH 86, CONTINUED GRADUAL
MOISTENING/DESTABILIZATION AHEAD OF THE CONVECTION THIS MORNING WILL
PERMIT RISK TO SPREAD OUT OF THE WATCH INTO EASTERN AND
GEORGIA/NORTHERN FLORIDA.  GIVEN STRONG BACKGROUND SHEAR --
SUPPORTIVE OF ORGANIZED/ROTATING STORMS, RISK FOR DAMAGING WINDS AND
A FEW TORNADOES WILL PERSIST.  AS SUCH, A NEW WW WILL LIKELY BE
REQUIRED AS STORMS BEGIN TO EXIT WW 86.

Here is where the radar thinks the rain has fallen so far. (1st image) CoCoRaHS reports show over 4-5 " at some locations and those were recorded earlier, they are even higher now.

Now that most of the rain is over, here is where it all fell. That's 4-5" in that strip from Harris county northeast to Stephens.

3.72 ended up being the total here, certainly more than forecast. Them issuing the flash flood warning after the rain had stopped was a bit shocking, but I guess it's likely a result of Georgia Power alerting them that they are opening the dams.

If you don't mind paying a bit, the app Radarscope is the best one out there and it's $9.99. It has every product you'll ever use and then some.

So, for us in north GA, except for more rain and some wind, everything is over?

Yep nothing to worry about. Rain, wind, and dropping temperatures.

Also, here in Dawson County, what is the risk of damaging winds, if any?

They mentioned significant tornado indexes of 4 in S Carolina. That is double what we had at times.  But consider this-   The April 27 outbreak had parameters near 12 , and at that time they thought10 was about high as you got. 64 parameters used to predict tornadoes The 27th outbreak there were 60 parameters screaming Tornado.   No wonder we might not see such in our lifetimes. Almost perfect situation for huge tornadoes

Probably not, maybe some gusty winds in any general storms that may develop. And it'll remain gusty overnight into tomorrow as the colder air rushes in.
