Daily Weather Briefing for Sunday, June 9, 2019







Outlook

A low-pressure system west of the region will continue to pump moisture from the Gulf of Mexico over the region and surrounding areas today through Monday. A cold front will arrive from the northwest on Monday night, but likely stall over the region on Tuesday, with abundant moisture returning through Wednesday. Another cold front will finally push through the region late in the week to bring in drier air from the west.

Weather Hazards

An active pattern will set up across the region through the weekend and into early next week. With multiple days of moderate to heavy rainfall, the threat of flash flooding will increase. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Macon County through 8pm this evening and may be extended should the rain occur as forecast. A copy of the watch is posted below.

Flash Flood Watch

National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC
1053 PM EDT Sat Jun 8 2019

...HEAVY RAINFALL AND ASSOCIATED FLASH FLOODING EXPECTED THROUGH SUNDAY ACROSS MUCH OF THE WESTERN CAROLINAS AND EXTREME NORTHEAST GEORGIA...

.Additional waves of heavy rain producing showers and thunderstorms are expected through at least Sunday evening across the western Carolinas and northeast Georgia. Rainfall rates will continue to be on the order of 1 to 2 inches per hour, locally higher in the heaviest downpours. With wet soils already in place across the region, additional heavy rainfall will likely lead to flooding and flash flooding, especially areas already hardest hit such as the North Carolina foothills and adjacent mountains. Isolated landslides will also be possible in these areas given the recent heavy rain. The heavy rain threat may linger beyond the period of the current Flash Flood Watch.



...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northeast Georgia, North Carolina, and upstate South Carolina, including the following areas, in northeast Georgia

* through Sunday evening

* Additional Rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches are possible across the region through Sunday, with some locations in and near the mountains likely seeing 2 to 4 inches. Locally higher amounts can be expected with any torrential rain showers repeatedly affecting the same location. This could cause flash flooding to develop very quickly.

* The heavy rainfall will cause streams to rise quickly and some might come out of their banks. Urban flooding may also occur in locations that have poor drainage. Isolated landslide activity is becoming more likely along and near the Blue Ridge Escarpment due to recent heavy rainfall.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.


**Note** A Tropical Weather Outlook section has been added to the daily weather briefing for the Atlantic Hurricane Season, and since those tend to run long when there is activity, that section has been added between the daily forecasts for the four regions of the county and the almanac section so people can get to their daily forecasts with minimal interference.
