Widespread Storms Today With Creek Flooding | Weather
Light showers will continue to push in through the day, with the strong storms holding off until late afternoon. Cloudy skies will prevail for most of the day leaving high temperatures to struggle getting into the mid to upper 80s. The ingredients needed for strong to severe thunderstorms will become abundant in the evening hours causing the storms to become more widespread than yesterday. Timeline for tough since it is hard to gauge when the sun will begin to break today, which will have the most impact on the timing for the strong storms. However, most of the storms will begin after 4pm and last through 11pm.
Cloud to ground lightning, strong winds, and flash flooding will be the main concerns for today. Total rainfall amounts will range from 0.50-1 inch, but higher amounts will be likely in thunderstorms (around 2-4 inches).
Tonight, after the storms clear we will be left with cloudy skies and fog developing mainly after midnight. Some of the fog could be dense with visibilities of less than a mile.
We also have some creeks and streams to watch out for tonight withe the flash flooding concerns. Crooked Creek near Norcross hit just below minor flood stage last night (pictured below), and will likely do the same tonight. Sope Creek near Marietta made it well into Moderate Flood stage last night (see second image below), and while it may not get that high again tonight, at least minor flood stage is likely. Also, any other small creeks or streams will be at risk through the night, so take precautions.
