Reports are that Lake Lanier levels are in the best shape since 2016 at this time of year thanks to a wet couple weeks. More rain is expected today.

There is a risk of a strong storm this afternoon, maybe an isolated severe thunderstorm.

However, as of this morning the risk is just marginal, a level 1 on a scale of 1-5.

It’s possible new data later today could cause the risk to go up so stay tuned:

What follows is weather about as nice as it gets this time of year, we actually get both weekend days dry for a pleasant change of pace. Part of the long forecast extended dry and mild spell into next week when temperatures warm to the low 80s by Wednesday following lows Monday morning as low as 40F in some spots.
