Ware Merchanical Weather Alert: More storms due Thursday — and perhaps over the weekend.

Yet another rough Thursday of weather is in the forecast. The following update was shared by Tim Herrington, Floyd County Emergency Management:

Unfortunately, we are expecting a switch to a more active weather pattern coming up as multiple disturbances/frontal systems look to impact the area. This will bring several rounds of isolated to scattered thunderstorms (some possibly severe) to portions of north and central GA tomorrow (Thurs) through Saturday.

MARGINAL risks for severe storms are across portions of north GA and west central GA both Thursday and Friday, and much of central GA is in a 15% area for Saturday, which could end up being a greater risk category with updates (see each day’s associated storm threats and graphics listed below). There’s uncertainty in timing of the multiple rounds, though overall the storms could be strongest in the afternoon and evening time frames.

Thursday storm threats (isolated strong/severe):

· Damaging winds > 60 MPH

· Isolated tornadoes

· Large hail

· Heavy rain / isolated flooding

Thursday Outlook


Friday storm threats (isolated strong/severe and overall a bit greater chance than Thursday):

· Damaging winds > 60 MPH

· Large hail (greater chance)

· Isolated tornadoes

· Heavy rain / isolated flooding

Friday Outlook


Saturday storm threats (isolated to scattered strong/severe):

· Damaging winds > 60 MPH

· Isolated tornadoes

· Large hail

· Heavy rain / isolated flooding

Saturday Outlook


5-day predicted rainfall (through Saturday): widespread 1.5-2 inches with locally higher expected
