    • Good morning! Don't know about you, but I have some very breezy conditions here at the house this morning and it feels great! The last time I looked I was around 69 degrees, so throw in the breezy winds with cloudy skies and it's cool out there! 🙂 Cheap thrills! It doesn't take much for me! 🙂    Our weather today and tomorrow will be pretty much like the last several....   Our temperatures for the weekend will increase while the chances for those afternoon and evening thunderstorms decrease.    Don't worry, the rain chances go back up to start the work week. 🙂 Highs today look like this While the highs for the weekend and most of next week look like this.   So... nothing new under the sun. 😇 Hope everyone has a great Thursday!
    • I'd love for that to happen here. 🙂 The other morning we had rain for 5-6 hours it seems like, it was awesome! 🙂
    • Had a microburst cause some pretty bad damage in the northern part of Rabun that same day also. Scared quite a few folks thinking they were in a tornado.  The cell over Rabun has been fun to watch today. Just constantly back building and training. Been raining for well over an hour and doesn't look like it's stopping anytime soon. 
    • Good morning!  We managed to pick up some nice storms yesterday! Here's a picture of a thunderstorm over Commerce right before sunset, and that storm is 45 miles away from me. It looks closer in person than it does in this picture.    I had another nice thunderstorm pass to my east, this image is looking toward Dahlonega.   Today and tomorrow will be like yesterday, so nothing new for a few days.   I suppose you heard about the damage from a thunderstorm on Lake Lanier the other day, and it was determined that a microburst was the culprit. I didn't know if you had seen this video that this person took.   I Tweeted three images to the NWS.   These are the images. Each image was 5 minutes apart and is a 3D volumetric scan and the purple generally indicates hail.  2:27 PM   2:33 PM   2:39 PM   Certainly evidence that over a 15-20 minute span, that core emptied itself completely. Microburst create tremendous downdraft winds that can reach tornado strength over a large area. When the core collapses, the rain/hail combination creates the high winds and once the column mass approaches the ground, the winds spread out radially in all directions.  That's it for today! Expect the afternoon and evening thunderstorms to continue for the foreseeable future. As long as we can keep the heat away... I'm good! Have a great Wednesday!
    • Good morning! Did you get enough rain yesterday? I know some had more than others and some had some wind and hail damage. If you had any damage, please share some pictures!  This morning Isaias is moving quickly up the coast and generating a lot of quick spin up tornadoes as it goes. Behind Isaias, a trough is pushing across the midwest and impulses in the flow will bring another chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms today, although the coverage will not be as great or intense as yesterday.    Here's a look at the radar estimated rainfall from yesterday.   Looking ahead...   Here's a look at the precipitable water values for the next 10 days. Notice we dry out a little bit today through Thursday, but the moisture returns just in time for the weekend.   High temperatures for today   As you can see, we're back in summertime mode for weather. I'll tell you what though... I REALLY enjoyed the clouds and rain yesterday morning. It was breezy and cool with thunder and rain, and it was a nice change from the sunny hot mornings we've had lately.    I hope everyone has a GREAT Tuesday!
