Weather: Nicole remnants will bring wind, rain to Coweta


From Staff Reports

Coweta County can expect gusty winds and some much-needed rain from Hurricane Nicole, says the National Weather Service in Peachtree City.

The remnants of Nicole, a rare November hurricane that made landfall on the Florida east coast yesterday, will move north across Georgia later today and through the overnight hours. Windy conditions and heavy rainfall are likely as the system moves through.

Coweta and most of Georgia is under a Wind Advisory, in effect from 10 a.m. today until 7 p.m. Friday. Northeast winds from 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 40 mph are possible. Gusty winds could blow around unsecured objects, trees and tree limbs could be blown down and a few power outages may result.

A 40 percent chance of showers are in today’s forecast, mainly after 2 p.m. under mostly cloudy skies and a high near 67. Tonight, a 100 percent rain chance is expected with Northeast winds at 15 to 20 mph, gusting to 35.

On Friday, more rain with a 90 percent chance generally before 1 p.m. East winds will be 10 to 15 mph with gusts to 25. The high will be 68.

Then Friday night and early Saturday, a strong cold front will move through Georgia clearing out the moisture and dropping the low on Saturday night to 32.
