Community, weather

BLAIRSVILLE, Ga – Union County remains under a flash flood watch until October 7 at 8 p.m.

Much of north Georgia is under the watch including all surrounding counties.

The National Weather Service Office out of Peachtree City (NWS) cautioned residents to pay attention to later forecasts in case they need to take action.

In a longer weather report, NWS stated:

“Rounds of moderate to heavy rain with embedded thunderstorms are expected through Thursday evening. Widespread additional rainfall totals of one to three inches are forecast across the watch area. Locally higher amounts will be possible, especially across north and northeast Georgia. The potential for localized flash flooding and quick rises on rivers and creeks will continue through Thursday, given the wet ground and above normal streamflows across the watch area. Several rivers and creeks have already responded to previous heavy rainfall.”

The weather appears to improve by the weekend.
