  • Hydrologic Outlook for Lanier County, Georgia
  • Hydrologic Outlook issued December 21 at 4:19PM EST by NWS
  • Effective: Sunday, December 21, 2014 at 4:19 p.m.
  • Expires: Monday, December 22, 2014 at 4:30 p.m.
  • ...HEAVY RAINFALL EXPECTED TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY WITH AN
    INCREASING POTENTIAL FOR AREAL AND RIVER FLOODING...
    THE COMBINATION OF A VERY MOIST AIR MASS LIFTING NORTHWARD ACROSS
    THE REGION INTERACTING WITH A STRONG STORM SYSTEM MOVING INTO THE
    MID SOUTH WILL CREATE WIDESPREAD MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL
    ACROSS THE TRI-STATE AREA FROM TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY.
    WHILE THERE IS STILL SOME UNCERTAINTY WITH RESPECT TO THE EXACT
    PLACEMENT OF HEAVIEST RAINFALL WITH THE STORM SYSTEM ON TUESDAY AND
    WEDNESDAY...CONFIDENCE IS INCREASING THAT A PERIOD OF SIGNIFICANT
    RAINFALL WILL OCCUR ACROSS THE REGION DURING THIS TIME FRAME.
    STORM TOTAL ACCUMULATIONS OF 4 TO 6 INCHES WITH ISOLATED HEAVIER
    AMOUNTS ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE FLORIDA BIG BEND AND SOUTH CENTRAL
    GEORGIA. FURTHER NORTHWEST...STORM TOTALS WILL GENERALLY BE IN THE
    2 TO 4 INCH RANGE.
    RAINFALL TOTALS OF THIS MAGNITUDE WILL INCREASE THE POTENTIAL FOR
    LOCALIZED FLOODING ACROSS THE REGION...PARTICULARLY DURING THE
    TIME OF HEAVIEST RAINFALL ON TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY
    MORNING.
    WITH AREA RIVERS AND ASSOCIATED TRIBUTARIES AT OR BELOW NORMAL
    FLOWS FOR DECEMBER...THE CURRENTLY PREDICTED RAINFALL AMOUNTS
    ARE GENERALLY EXPECTED TO ONLY PRODUCE RISES TO ACTION STAGE AT
    MOST OF THE RIVER FORECAST POINTS. THE NOTABLE EXCEPTIONS TO THIS
    WILL BE WITHIN THE OCHLOCKONEE AND WITHLACOOCHEE RIVER BASINS
    WHERE THERE IS AN INCREASED POTENTIAL TO REACH MINOR FLOOD STAGE
    LATER THIS WEEK. SHOULD MORE RAIN OCCUR THAN CURRENTLY
    FORECAST...THE CORRESPONDING RIVER FLOOD RISK WOULD INCREASE AND
    INCLUDE ADDITIONAL RIVER BASINS REACHING AT LEAST MINOR FLOOD
    STAGE.
