For the first time in nearly a week, Northeast Georgians awoke to relatively calm weather. As of 8:15 a.m. Friday, all regional flood watches, advisories, and warnings had expired.
There still is a Hazardous Weather Outlook posted for the region, including Habersham, Banks, Barrow,Clarke, Dawson, Elbert, Fannin, Forsyth, Franklin, Gilmer, Gwinnett, Hall, Hart, Jackson, Lumpkin, Madison, Pickens, Rabun, Stephens, Towns, Union, and White counties.
The National Weather Service says ongoing storms over Tennessee will move into far North Georgia this morning and then the remainder of North Georgia late morning into the afternoon.
Damaging winds and large hail are possible, especially during the afternoon hours. Although most of the storms will be moving which should alleviate most flood concerns, the recent very heavy rainfall in some places the last couple of days could lead to additional flood concerns.
Another strong system will push through the area late Saturday night through Sunday bringing additional chances of severe storms to parts of the region. These storms are expected to bring damaging winds and hail to the area.
No hazardous weather is expected Monday and Tuesday.
There will be a slight chance of thunderstorms over portions of central Georgia on Wednesday.
