A couple places around here have gotten 10"-12" or more over the last few days.
 
Just had a very strong storm pop in northern Heard county. Good bit of hail from pea to dime size.
North Paulding ain't hittin on nothin when it comes to rain! We got a sprinkle or two over the last week.....other than that...notta!
 
Not looking good for this Memorial Day Weekend. Going to be a bust nearly everywhere in the Southeast...especially the beaches. Umbrella sales are going to be the only hot commodity.

Yep. We managed to get a prime camping reservation so it’s about par for the course. And now they are talking tropical system. :banginghe

Okie Dokey, so we have a big spinny that the Messicans are gonna send us from the Yucatan in a few days. The question is, how strong will it be and where will it come ashore?

A few notes then I'll post pretty pics.

#1 - Remember the strongest winds of a Hurricane are at the landfall point and all points to the east (that would be to your right on the map ;-) ) Some models indicate that some really good surf (winds) could extend as far as 100 miles to the east with this one.

#2 - The map model designation is in the upper left hand corner. (GFS, NAVGEM, ECMWF) and the day and timing is generally on the middle top with these maps.

#3 - No, keeping your plans for a Memorial day trip to the gulf coast might not be the best idea. In fact the Eastern Seaboard has a better than good chance of being wet this weekend. You may get a good Friday and Saturday in, between clouds and rain showers, or nothing but sun, but the currents in the ocean on the gulf side are going to be vicious, so expect lots of red flags. The worst part about a system threatening the coastal areas at this point is A) you are within your cancellation period for most reservations. B) this could all change and the storm go east across southern Florida and you cancelled for nothing. Is it worth the gamble with so many models saying virtually the same thing???

#4 - Landfall, if there is one, is currently projected to be between Slidell to just east of Alligator Point. Strength could be from a mid level hurricane down to a good tropical storm. All of this information can and will change before any potential landfall.

#5 - Once the weather starts going south, getting rainy, it isn't going to let up until this system is out of there.

I've heard Colorado is nice this time of year, just sayin.

Here's the maps, they tell you as much as anyone knows at this point so no IMBY questions please. If you insist on keeping your beach plans, well, you've been warned. I will sell the sled at a reasonable cost if you think it will help. ��







 
A bunch of rain is not going to be pretty around here. River and lakes are already above full pool. They are already having to hold back major releases from West Point due to high river conditions down towards Columbus.

I would imagine the same is true for the Oconee river with all the rain the Athens area has been getting. The problem is,the lakes can only hold so much. It's not easy working outside in these conditions either. Missed 2 days this week so far and 1 last week. Planning on working the holiday weekend weather permitting
