Alert Information

Watches, Warnings, & Advisories

  • A Storm Surge Warning remains in effect for Camden and Glynn Counties. A Storm Surge Watch is still in effect for the remainder of the Georgia coast.
  • A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for all coastal Georgia counties. Additionally, a Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for all of South Georgia, including all Georgia counties within the National Weather Service Jacksonville and Tallahassee areas of responsibility.
  • A Tornado Watch is in effect for Camden and Glynn Counties through 1 PM. Additional Watches will likely be issued throughout the event, especially in Southeast Georgia.
  • A Wind Advisory has been issued for much of North and Central Georgia. Parts of Central Georgia north of the Tropical Storm Warning (Warner Robins, Dublin, Americus, Cordele, and Vidalia areas) are under a High Wind Warning for gusts up to 45 mph.

Inland Impacts

Outer rain bands have already begun to move into southern and southeastern Georgia and will continue to overspread the rest of Georgia from south to north throughout today and tonight. Winds will continue to increase throughout the afternoon and evening as well, with gusts of 30-40 mph expected statewide and up to 50 mph possible in southern Georgia. Heavy rainfall will be possible, accumulating to 1-3 inches across the state. Southern Georgia should see the highest rainfall amounts, but with the system moving through so quickly today and tomorrow, widespread flooding is not anticipated. Localized flooding is possible where fallen leaves clog storm drains. A few tornadoes are also possible today through tomorrow morning, especially in southeastern Georgia.

Coastal Impacts

Dangerous coastal conditions will continue today through tomorrow morning for the entire Georgia coast, including coastal flooding, significant beach erosion, dangerous sea and surf conditions, and life-threatening rip currents. 3 to 5 feet of storm surge inundation will be possible in Camden and Glynn Counties, with 2 to 4 feet possible in McIntosh, Liberty, Bryan, and Chatham Counties. These inundation levels will be most pronounced if they coincide with the astronomical high tides this evening and tomorrow morning. Tropical storm force sustained winds with higher gusts could cause damage to trees, powerlines, and structures. The tornado threat will also be highest in the coastal counties through tomorrow morning.
