"It is expected that flash flooding will start soon, if not already," the weather service said in a report. "In addition, White County Emergency Management has reported that several county roads were closed due to floods."
ORIGINAL STORY : Rain, rain and more rain.
The forecast looks very wet over the next few days as Northern Georgia rallies after the rains, according to Channel 2 Action News Round one has already brought more Thursday night has dropped more than two inches of rain at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and channel 2 meteorologist Brad Nitz expects another 1 to 2 centimeters on Friday.
Th In the next five to seven days, meteorologist Katie Walls of Channel 2 said she was considering "rainfall in excess of 6 inches." I reckon with the flooding being a problem. "
This year's eighth weather sat at Atlanta's record at the start of the week, but the rain on Thursday and Friday morning bumped through the ranking in 2018. It is now the fourth-wetest year in history and Walls said it could be near the top by December 31st.
The record was set at 71.45 inches in 1948, and Atlanta was at 68.29 inches Friday after 8 pm.
The entire north of Georgia is under surveillance until 7 am There have been flood warnings for several rivers, streams and streams around edited around the metro Atlanta. The National Meteorological Service issued a new flood warning on Friday morning for North Fork Peachtree Creek, which concerns the counties of DeKalb and Fulton.
All the rain also causes concern when you walk on the streets and fallen trees said. Officials said some roads in Sandy Springs in northern Fulton County are closed due to flooding.
Riverside Drive on North Harbor, Riverside Drive south of Johnson Ferry Road and Roswell Road on Sandy Springs Circle are closed, police said.
The authorities oversee Nancy Creek at the Windsor Parkway.
"With additional rain In the forecast," the police said in a tweet, "we prepare for flooding in low areas. Be careful when driving and do not cross flooded streets.
"On the positive side, strong thunderstorms are not in my forecast," she said.
Rain fell for several hours. While there's a break now, more showers are on their way from a system in Alabama, Walls said.
"What's in Alabama, that's going to really go in our direction in the first half of this day," she said. "Just because we have this little gap, do not let your guard down yet, because we have plenty of rain ahead of this next cold front."
At 7 pm, the next rain groups were supposed to move across the border and in northwestern Georgia Walls said. At 11 o'clock in the morning it could rain almost everywhere in northern Georgia.
"At lunchtime this is not good at all, because we expect these areas to have heavy rains, even if there are some thunderstorms." She said.
The silver lining? By the middle of the afternoon, it is expected that temperatures in the mid- to upper-60s will reach highs, so that the conditions for the end of December are positive.
And while even more rain is most likely in the coming days, Walls said, at least it will not be constant.
"You may have guessed the chances of rain today, they are 100 percent," she said. "However, I expect some improvements later in the day, so your afternoon and evening traffic should be very different."
Most of the rain is expected to clear North Georgia at 4:00 pm. As a cold front slides into the state, it brings in drier air. The cloud cover should be maintained, but Walls said the rain probability dropped by 20 percent for Saturday.
