Julia a Flooding Threat for Georgia and South Carolina – May Remain a Problem for Days

   Posted by Levi at 1:59pm on September 14, 2016

There is evidence this morning that Tropical Storm Julia is moving over water near the Georgia coastline. If this has indeed occurred, Julia may be able to retain some strength as it drifts close to the coastline over the next couple days. This could prolong the period during which tropical storm force winds could impact the coastlines of Georgia and South Carolina, but the primary impact of heavy rains up to 10 inches and flooding potential will remain largely unchanged. Julia will be caught in an a region of weak steering currents for the rest of this week, and may remain in the general vicinity into the weekend.

    Levi,

    What are the odds do you think that this could become another Baton Rouge? Is the potential to go to 20″ there, do you think? It’s a bit smaller now, but …. everyone got taken by surprise on that deal.

      Luckily it won’t be nearly that much, thanks to wind shear that will both push thunderstorms off to the eastern side of the storm (away from the coast) and keep it weak. Local totals to 10 inches when it’s all said and done are what have been expected, and that will likely hold true.
