From Floyd County Emergency Management Director Tim Herrington: There is a chance we could experience high winds, large hail, possible tornadoes, and heavy periods of rain associated with the weather system expected to move into our area Saturday morning.
Overview: A possible severe weather system will move into Georgia Saturday morning as it exits the Mississippi River Valley. There is still some uncertainty with the track of the associated surface low — and the placement of its warm front across North and Central Georgia. For now, the best location for severe weather looks to be mainly along and south of Interstate 20 during the day Saturday. In addition to the potential for strong to severe storms, heavy rain will also be a concern … in the 1.5 to 2 inch range.
Morning low Thursday was 31 degrees.
Today: Sunny, with a high near 65. Light northwest wind becoming west 5 to 10 mph in the afternoon.
