Forecast at a Glance
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAS ISSUED A FLASH FLOOD WATCH UNTIL AUGUST 23,1:00AM
A surface low pressure is currently influencing the area creating multiple upper level disturbances that are going to cause precipitation for the rest of the day and into tonight. Some periods of rain will be downpours, some wont. This is why a Flash Flood Watch is implemented today until August 23rd at 1:00AM EDT. People located near small streams and rivers should be prepared if the rain is continuously persistent throughout the entire day. The surface low will continue to move its way more south and as it does will bring with it the chance for showers and thunderstorms. This surface low is expected to pass the Athens area on Sunday, and will be replaced with a surface high pressure. As the weekend progresses there are less chances of precipitation. Even though the surface low is moving out of the area the temperatures should remain fairly the same, with the same muggy conditions. This surface high is going to affect the Athens area into the end of the forecast.
