Good Thursday.  The heavy rain is now to the east, but after 1"-2" of rain fell flooding along creeks and streams will be an issue.  A FLOOD WARNING is in effect for Lookout Creek near New England.  Minor flooding is already taking place there.  A FLOOD WATCH is in effect for all of north Georgia as more creeks and streams may overflow their banks as they try to take the water away.

We still have a few drizzles and have had a few flurries this morning on the Cumberland Plateau.  Skies will quickly clear through the morning, and cold dry air will settle in.  This afternoon we will only make it to the upper 30s and low 40s with blustery winds from the WNW at 10-15 mph.

Friday will just be flat out cold.  Temps in the morning will start in the low to mid 20s (10s on the Plateau).  The afternoon will not make it out of the mid to upper 30s.

For the weekend we will start cold on Saturday morning.  We will be in the upper 10s and low 20s.  Skies will be partly cloudy in the afternoon as temps make it to the mid 40s.  Sunday will be a bit warmer with temps ranging from 31 in the morning to 49 in the afternoon.

Monday will be cool and dry, but we are watching Tuesday very closely.  It looks as though that may bring us a decent chance for another wintry mix.
