Atlanta Weather | Wet Summer Continues

Atlanta Weather | Wet Summer Continues
 For many areas of the East, this summer will be remembered for being more than unusually wet.It has been a busy summer for showers and thunderstorms from parts of the Mississippi Valley to the Atlantic coast, including Atlanta, which has resulted in record rainfall in some locations and there is still just shy of a month of meteorological summer to go.Here in Atlanta, we have not broken a yearly rainfall record, but with only 4 months left in the year, it is likely that we will exceed our yearly average of roughly 50 inches. (currently at 45.80 Inches).But records are breaking in other places like Philadelphia with close to 25 inches of rain, shattering the old record of 24.58 spanning June, July and August of 2011. The site also recently set their wettest calendar day on record.

Dorian Downgraded Again

After coming back to life this morning, Dorian is downgraded again.  The latest update from the National Hurricane Center classifies Dorian as a "post tropical cyclone."  It has lost it's tropical characteristics and is a remnant low pressure system that will move toward the north and east as it continues to weaken.

The storm was briefly upgraded back to a tropical depression this morning.  That regeneration was brief before the downgrade again Saturday afternoon.

It is only causing rain off the eastern coast of Florida now.  A few showers will affect the Florida coastline.  Folks along the east coast of Florida will also experience some rough surf.  Dorian is forecast to move to the north and east and not have a direct impact on land.  The post tropical system won't have any effect on us here in Georgia.  

Here is the latest advisory from NHC:
