THE LATEST

Some heavy rain falling in parts of Rome just after 4 p.m. Monday. No advisories in effect, however.

EARLIER TODAY

The Sunday night storms together combined for 1.34 inches of rain at the airport in Armuchee, the most we’ve had in quite a while. Some resulting power outages around Rome were quickly repaired. Gusts as high as 23 mph were recorded there. The ag weather station off Bells Ferry tracked one gust at 34.6 mph.

OUTLOOK

Scattered to numerous thunderstorms are expected Monday through Wednesday, primarily in the afternoon and evening. A few storms could be strong with gusty winds, frequent lightning and heavy rainfall.

The weather hazards for Thursday through Saturday, if any, will greatly depend on the track of Hurricane Florence. Florence is forecast to become a major hurricane as it moves across the western Atlantic Tuesday and beyond, and looks to threaten the coastal areas of North and South Carolina. Please stay tuned.
