Hazardous Weather Outlook For CLAY County,GA

238 PM EST Sat Feb 16 2019

 DAY ONE  Tonight  

The probability for widespread hazardous weather is low.

Low clouds, drizzle and areas of fog are expected to develop late
tonight and persist into Sunday. Visibilities may be reduced to 
less than 1/2 mile at times.

 DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN  Sunday through Friday  

Confidence is increasing that multiple rounds of rain can be 
expected across much of the area through Friday, with 2 to as much 
as 8 inches possible by the end of the week. The highest rainfall 
amounts at this time are expected across northwest Georgia. An 
increased threat for river and stream flooding is likely through 
the week as rain falls over saturated grounds. Localized flash 
flooding will also be possible, especially over the complex 
terrain of north Georgia.

Plenty of uncertainty exists with respect to where the axis of 
heaviest rain sets up, so stay tuned to the latest forecasts and 
updates each day.

 SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT  

Spotter activation is not expected through tonight.
