... Subtropical storm Alberto to impact the area...

Subtropical storm Alberto is currently located over the
northeastern Gulf of Mexico and is expected to make landfall on
the western Florida Panhandle on Monday morning. The storm will
weaken after landfall as the center of circulation moves
northward through Alabama on Monday and Tuesday. This system will
continue to spread moisture into our southwestern tier this
afternoon. Bands of showers and thunderstorms will impact the
area beginning this afternoon and will continue through Thursday.

Storm total rainfall is expected to be on the order of 2 to 4
inches across north and central Georgia, with the exception of the
northeastern mountains, which are expected to receive between 4 to
6 inches. Locally higher amounts will be possible. Due to previous
rainfall and already saturated soils, there will be an increased
threat of flash flooding associated with this system.

Potential impacts:

Flooding rain:
the primary hazard associated with subtropical storm Alberto will
be heavy rain and potential flooding associated with multiple rain
bands moving across the area. Additional rainfall amounts on top
of already saturated soils will lead to the possibility of flash
flooding throughout north and central Georgia. Highest flooding
potentials exist in west-central Georgia where the ground is
already highly saturated and also in the northeastern mountains
due to terrain influences coupled with the highest rainfall
amounts expected in this area. Minor flooding is possible along
rivers and tributaries. Moreover, residual moisture feeding into
the area from the Gulf of Mexico as the system moves northward
will keep our area in a wet pattern late in the week.

Wind:
sustained wind speeds of 15 to 25 mph, with gusts up to 35 mph
will be possible across western Georgia from Monday night until
Tuesday night. Strong, gusty winds could also be present in
thunderstorms embedded within rain bands. Already saturated soils
could cause trees to fall at lower wind speeds. Falling trees
could bring down power lines which could lead to power outages in
some locations.

Tornadoes:
there is a chance of isolated strong thunderstorms embedded within
rain bands as they move across the area. These strong storms could
be capable of producing brief tornadoes on Monday and Tuesday.
