Good evening Athens, I hope you are having a relaxing victorious night. The current temperature is about 79 degrees. The low tonight will be 71 degrees. Your chance of rain tomorrow is 70%.
Since our last update Florence has weakened from a hurricane to a tropical storm. The storm is currently centered over central South Carolina and is currently moving west. Over the next few hours Florence is expected to weaken further to a tropical depression. The system will turn north over the next day and continue towards the Ohio River valley.
The effects of this tropical system on Athens are expected to be minimal. The expected wind gusts are about 25 miles per hour, which in general is not enough to do any damage. As for flood risk our current precipitation forecast is under an inch, neither flash or river flooding are expected. You should expect a breezy rainy Sunday, especially early in the day.
