Potentially historic hurricane Michael begins its assault on the Florida Panhandle.

Most of the Metro Atlanta area will be on the weaker left side of the track as the eye of the storm moves rapidly Northeast across South Georgia. As of now at least, the area at greatest risk for flooding or loss of power is near and South of a line from Athens to La Grange. Points North of there can still experience it but it will be more exception than rule.

1-3 inches of rain on average for the Atlanta area heaviest far Southeast suburbs lightest far Northwest suburbs. Wind gusts to 20 mph or so at times today, increasing overnight into tomorrow 15-25 with isolated gusts 30-40 mph. This could change so stay tuned.
