It's looking like the entire week will bring a chance of showers to our area, with a chance for severe weather tomorrow afternoon and evening. Some of the storms could contain tornadoes, but damaging winds are the more likely scenario. And not only is there a chance of severe weather on Wednesday but again on Friday. The rain is great though since Lake Lanier is below the level it was at last year and south Georgia is still in an extreme drought condition (Drought Monitor). The 5-day rainfall forecast totals from the HPC show potentially several inches of rain over our area with even more as you go further north. Again, it comes down to where you are located when it comes through. The other day, areas south of the metro area received 2-4" while we only recorded 0.02" here at DaculaWeather.com.
Thursday is the start of Meteorological Spring (March 1 - May 31) and it's going to feel like it with temperatures in the 70s through Friday before we fall back to more seasonable conditions on Saturday. Right now there is still a chance of rain on Saturday but it should begin tapering off and clearing as the day goes on, with dry conditions replacing the rain beginning Sunday and lasting through the middle of next week.
We will be monitoring the upcoming potential severe weather events and we'll be the first to keep you informed about how it may affect our area.
I'm currently working on version 4 of DaculaWeather.com with a new look and increased functionality. One of the additions will be more point specific forecast for not only Gwinnett, but all of the southeast. I'm still in the design phase but here's a sample test page showing how you will be able to select the forecast for your specific area ... again, this is a test page and not a production page but the forecast you'll see is current and directly from the National Weather Service.
