Channel 3 AM Forecast


Good Friday!  We will see a few showers continuing until about 8am, then the rain will end, and we will have mostly cloudy skies with the high reaching a very muggy 86 degrees.  This afternoon will be a bit windy as winds blow from the south at 10-20 mph.  The wind and humidity are ahead of a front which will push the remnants of Cindy through the Tennessee Valley this evening.  I would expect some strong storms to move in after 5pm, and last through the evening hours, tapering off overnight.  Here are the potential impacts:

RAIN:  We will get another 1"-2" of rain widespread with locally up to 3"+.  There will be the possibility of localized flash flooding.  A Flash Flood Watch is in effect from 2pm today through Saturday evening for our north Georgia counties.

DAMAGING WIND:  There is a chance for winds in excess of 60 mph with some of the stronger storms.  With the ground already saturated, that could blow over some trees and we may be dealing with some power outages for your Friday night.

TORNADOES:  I certainly don't expect a tornado outbreak, but an isolated tornado is not out of the question.  The Storm Prediction Center has us at about a 2% chance for a tornado developing this evening.

Saturday will start with a few light showers for the morning with temps in the 70s.  Saturday afternoon we will dry out, and it may be a bit breezy Saturday afternoon also.  Skies will be partly cloudy with the high reaching 86.

Sunday will be awesome.  The high will be in the low 80s, and the humidity will be much lower making it feel amazing all day long.  Skies will be mostly sunny.


8am... Showers Ending, 74

Noon... Mostly Cloudy / Windy, 81

5pm... Storms Moving In, 86
