Issac’s Impact on Central Georgia
The center of the storm will stay hundreds of miles to the west but Isaac still bring us periods of rain. Central Georgia will experience rain bands from the outer edge of the large storm.
When looking at the “cone of uncertainty” it is important to keep in mind that rain and wind can extend well beyond the center of the path.
The chance for rain will increase on today and Wednesday. We’re more likely to experience rain bands that come and go instead of a long, continuous downpour.
Rainfall totals could range from 1 to 4 inches in Central Georgia. Higher amounts are possible, but not guaranteed. Localized flash flooding is a possibility that will be monitored closely.
Hurricanes can spin up tornadoes after coming ashore. Based on the current track, there will be a potential for isolated brief tornadoes late Tuesday and Wednesday.
