CHILLY NOR’EASTER TO BRING FLOODING RAINS TO OUR AREA

2014-04-18_071846

FRIDAY AND FRIDAY NIGHT RAINS TO CAUSE FLOODING FROM THREE TO FIVE INCH DOWNPOURS.

Low pressure from the Gulf, combined with a stationary front across the Florida peninsula, may cause rain totals to exceed to cause serious flooding to parts of south Georgia and northeast Florida by Saturday morning. As the low pressure center passes to the Atlantic coast Saturday, our rains will decrease during the day on Saturday.  Rising river levels along the Suwannee and St Marys, as well as Black Creek will be of serious concern to area residents. Coastal tides have been above normal due to the nor’easter which can restrict rain water in the St. Johns from draining into the Atlantic Ocean. The month of April which is climatologically our sunniest month of the year, but in some years rain waters draining into north Florida from south Georgia into the Suwannee, as well as north Florida rain water flowing into Santa Fe, cause water levels to rise to the flood stage when sunny skies return during the spring season.
