We’ll start a pretty unsettled pattern on this Monday. A cold front will drape itself across the entire Southeastern United States through this afternoon. Numerous showers and thunderstorms will develop along this front and be a primary rain and storm maker for South Georgia today. There is a low end severe threat for gusty winds and heavy rain. While this rain is beneficial, there is a flood threat that has escalated this morning as thunderstorms continue to move over the same spots. Parts of Southeast Alabama have picked up 5-6” in the last 24 hours, this threat will spread into Southwest Georgia late this morning. Tonight and tomorrow the aforementioned cold front will slide south while a series of disturbances develop along it. This means a high rain chance and scattered thunderstorms for the entire area through Wednesday. Expected rain totals through midweek are impressive; eastern areas: .25-1”, central: 1-2”, western: 2-5”. The mess will move out by Valentine’s Day with a much drier but cooler finish to the week.
Be safe and have a great Monday, umbrellas up!
