  1. Good morning! Hurricane Sally is making her way to the coast, but the winds this morning have dropped to 85 mph, so she has weakened overnight. But being the slow mover that she is (you know... "waitin' on a women" 🙂 ), she will dump a LOT of rain once she comes ashore. Our focus now is on the potential for heavy rain across north Georgia.
