Thunderstorms were in the forecast for southern Georgia as the week ended last week, as an area of low pressure drifted into the Canadian Maritimes, but they weren’t really expected to be especially heavy, nor particularly long lasting. Well, the storm that came through Valdosta late on Saturday wasn’t necessarily the longest lasting storm, but it definitely was heavy. Valdosta reported over 2 inches of rain, which was definitely not in the plans, even though thunderstorms were. All it takes is one heavy storm to sit right over a rain gauge for a little while, and it completely changes the impression of a day. The Weather Service and Weather Nation combined their powers to win the forecast.
Actuals: Friday, High 91, Low 72
Saturday 2.15 inches of rain, High 92, Low 70
