Major rainfall for the Southeastern US States.
A large disturbance located in the Gulf of Mexico, to which the NHC is giving a 10% chance of cyclogenesis, is held accountable for the major rainfall in the forecast for the southeast. Ruining people's July 4th plans completely.
The disturbance is not expected to develop into a tropical cyclone since it's located in a hostile environment; wind shear will proven any development, however, the storm will continue to generate that massive rainfall
Its possible to have rainfall rates of 2" within those heavy bands, the key is location since they will be isolated, however, if you get picked expect very heavy rain and instant flooding and big runoff.
Places in northern Georgia, eastern TN and far western SC are the best bet.
Rainfall outlook through Saturday...
To come up with my rainfall forecast I used NWS info and a blend of the following maps:
1. WPC 1-3 day rain forecast
2. TWC SE rainfall map
3. Current NWS SE Radar
Currently: Lots of rain, and heavy, is headed for Macon and Atlanta.
Widespread flood watches
The so called "Atmospheric river", bringing up the coast rain up to NYC, even further north.
NWS Peachtree City rainfall forecast
