AthensGaWeather was created on April 17, 2009 by Matt Daniel. The main goal behind AthensGaWeather is to provide accurate weather information from a local point of view. Most of our weather information comes from Atlanta since Athens does not have a local station that provides weather updates. You can find AthensGaWeather everywhere online via twitter, facebook, Google +, and UStream. If severe weather strikes, AthensGaWeather keeps you alert no matter what time of the day. If you lose power, you can access the UStream feed to watch live radar and analysis of severe weather as it moves into our area on your smartphone.
Meet the AthensGaWeather Team:
Our page is for the Athens area, but we try to cover parts of eastern Georgia too. Tornado warnings across all of north Georgia are covered. However, severe thunderstorm warning coverage is limited to the counties in yellow.
Here’s the full list of counties we cover:
Hall, Banks, Franklin, Hart, Gwinnett, Barrow, Jackson, Madison, Elbert, Rockdale, Walton, Oconee, Clarke, Oglethorpe, Wilkes, Taliaferro, Greene, Morgan, and Newton counties.
This includes the cities of Commerce, Greensboro, Watkinsville, Athens, Lexington, Monroe, Social Circle, Loganville, Conyers, Covington, Madison, Winder, Lawrenceville, Lilburn, Duluth, Gainesville, Jefferson, Danielsville, and Washington.
Our main goal is to provide weather updates for Athens, and then focus outside of those areas.
Remember, if a tornado warning is issued for parts of North Georgia, we will also mention and update this information on our facebook and twitter feeds.
