Chattanooga is on the northeastern fringle of the flooding potential but it has definitely shifted towards the south more probably in relation to the eastward trend of Sally.

She's just going to sit there and dump beaucoup rain on the coast for the next day. It's going to be a pretty bad flood event as she pushes surge northward and doesn't allow the rivers to drain to the south.

The Euro brought the rain back last night. Over 4" here, almost 12" just south in Rome, GA. Let's see if it sticks around for the 12Z run. The GFS is much lighter, with just under 2".
Aaaaannnd its gone again. No clue if its going to rain at all. It seems anything from a trace to 4 is on the table.

Sally is pretty much the Floriabama verison of Hurricane Isaac back in 2012. 

Slow-moving CAT 1 storm with lots of rain and probably a CAT 2/perhaps even CAT 3 style surge because it has been sitting there collecting water.

100 mph winds Sally just grinding the coast between Mobile and Pensacola overnight and this morning.

Looks like minimal impacts from remnants here now. My forecast only shows 20 percent shower chances through tomorrow before the cool down.

Sister in Niceville made it through the storm. Cell service is really spotty, power goes in and out as it pleases, internet has been down all day, but the storm surge didn't make it as far into the neighborhood as forecast, thankfully.

They were unbelievably lucky. A five minute drive in any direction would put you driving into flood waters.

Looks like it was rough on the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area also- took out a section of the pier at Gulf State Park.

Rain chances have been removed from the forecast here. Appears the remnants are clipping far E TN.

I saw a news report this morning claiming that Pensacola's 30 inches of rain fell in 4 hours. I don't know how accurate that is, but it's hard to even imagine rainfall that heavy. It would be like standing under a giant waterfall.

I think that might be a typo. Probably 24 hours. It likely isnt physically impossible though. There was a town in Texas that recorded over 12 of rain in a hour during Harvey.

This was a swing and miss for us rainfall wise. Got under 0.40 here. And now the GFS is bone dry for 15 days straight. Im probably finished mowing after this weekend.

I've mowed my grass more this summer than just about any other I can remember. I'll be more than happy with a good dry stretch.

The extent of the effects here- getting breezy, presumably pressure gradient of the remnants moving by to the southeast.

Can confirm. I have an eardrum that has ruptured twice in the last 2 years. It popped again yesterday.  ::shrug::
