Flooding Threat in Georgia and Florida
A slow moving cold front will produce scattered showers and thunderstorms today (Monday) across the Southeast, with a threat for flooding rains in southern Georgia and northern Florida. Flash Flood Watches remain in effect, with the potential of more than 3″ of rain. There is also a risk for severe thunderstorms.
Southerly winds ahead of the front will push high humidity across the region. This will fuel thunderstorms and increase the chance for heavy rainfall. There have already been some reports of flooding in the last 24 hours.
Thunderstorms will move along and ahead of the front from the Gulf of Mexico toward the Atlantic Ocean. Some storms will likely produce heavy rain over similar areas due to the slow moving nature of the front. This will increase the threat for flooding.
