The weather, currently.

Low 80s and slight chance of evening rain for Wednesday, September 30th. 

The big national weather story has been hurricane Ian as it continues to bring devastating flooding and winds to Southwest and eventually Central Florida. Would you believe me if I said Ian will play a role in our area getting rain for the rest of the week?

The reason we are seeing rain chances starting as of Thursday and Friday is due to a cold front coming from the Pacific Northwest. Usually cold fronts move through our area pretty quickly. However, hurricane Ian will disrupt the flow of the atmosphere and that cold front will stall. Which means, we see those chances of rain stick around longer than they usually would.

So for Thursday, here is what to expect:

1) Highs in the low 80s.

2) Slight chance of evening rain as that front works its way over to Colorado. Higher chance of rain on Friday.

3) Last relatively calm day until true stormy days come back.

Activity forecast:

For all activities: Really, it will be nice most of the day. Try to move activities indoors by the evening hours if you can due to a small chance of rain.

What you need to know, currently.

Ian made landfall Wednesday as a horrifying Category 4 hurricane, with winds just shy of Category 5. Cuba began restoring power today, after the storm knocked out the country’s grid as it passed through.

The storm’s track shifted slightly to the east on Wednesday, bringing catastrophic flooding to much of the southeastern portion of the state.

Conditions are expected to worsen throughout the evening as the storm moves across the state. Although Ian will weaken as it moves inland, it’s still a massive storm carrying an enormous amount of rain. The latest storm surge update extends to North Carolina and estimates 4-6 feet of flooding along the entire Georgia coast.
