Athens, GeorgiaLocal Weather Alerts
There are currently no active weather alerts.

We are continuing to monitor the progress of Hurricane Florence. Our local impacts will depend heavily on where the storm tracks after landfall. Once Florence approaches the US coastline late Thursday, the steering currents dictating the storms track are forecast to become very weak. Because of the weak steering, models have struggled with exactly where the storm will go post landfall. If the storm moves further west, Athens and NE GA will have the potential for several inches of rainfall from this very slow moving system. If the storm remains to our east, we may not see anything at all. At this time, all you need to do is remain aware of the forecast, and know that we still have a wide variety of scenarios that may play out locally.
