(Cleveland)- Based on the latest official forecast track, as Florence moves inland and weakens through Sunday, the center will likely remain east of the state, including our Northeast Georgia area which will result in a lower impact than previously reported.
White County Public Safety Director David Murphy advised Friday morning that we should have fewer winds across the area, winds are expected 15 miles per hour with gusts up to 30 late Saturday into Sunday. Murphy said forecast rainfall amounts have been tapered slightly as well. Currently, 1-1.5 inches of rain is possible along and east of a line from Blairsville to Gainesville to Washington line with isolated amounts near 2 inches.
Murphy said weather service officials advise tornadoes continue to appear unlikely based on the forecast keeping the center of the state.
