Anna Sims joined Storm Team 9 as a weekend meteorologist in July 2020. She is excited to start her career at home in the Chattahoochee Valley while working one county away from her home in Harris County, Ga. Anna began college at Young Harris College in North Georgia where she studied Environmental Science and was a competitive cheerleader for the Mountain Lions. After a year and a half in the Enchanted Valley, Anna’s passion for weather continued to grow, and she decided to transfer to the University of Georgia to pursue a degree in Atmospheric Sciences. Anna graduated from the University of Georgia in May 2020 with a BS in Atmospheric Sciences and a BS in Geography. Anna plans to pursue a Master’s Degree in the next few years while researching severe weather.
During her years at the University of Georgia, Anna did extensive research on tornadic events. One of her favorite research projects focused on the March 3, 2019 tornado outbreak - a date which Anna holds heavily on her heart. Anna was home in Pine Mountain during this outbreak, and she was less than half of a mile from where a tornado touched down in Pine Mountain. It was during this tornadic outbreak that Anna decided she wanted to pursue broadcast meteorology in the Chattahoochee Valley so that she could help keep her neighbors safe during severe weather outbreaks.
Anna spent most of her free time growing up with her grandparents in Harris County, and she loves the Chattahoochee Valley because it is her home. After spending four years away at college, she is happy to be back while she kicks off her career in Columbus.
We will see a rainy Saturday across the Chattahoochee Valley as a disturbance from our west moves through. We will keep the rain coverage in the 70-80% range Saturday, and we could see some showers lingering into the nighttime and morning hours as well.
For your Sunday, we will see highs in the mid-to-upper 70s and mostly cloudy skies across the Chattahoochee Valley. It is going to be another cool and crisp day with no rain to mention in the forecast, so maybe have a nice lunch outside or let the dogs run around while you sit on the porch!
We are going to see some beautiful Fall-like weather across the Chattahoochee Valley today to make for some GREAT football viewing weather! We will see a whole lot of sunshine around today with temperatures only reaching the mid-70s in spots.
A low rain coverage of about 40-50% returns to the forecast Sunday and stays until Tuesday. Our highs will stay in the mid-80s on Sunday and Monday, but Tuesday we will drop those highs back into the upper-70s.
We are seeing some dense fog this morning, but once that clears out we are in store for a beautiful Saturday across the Chattahoochee Valley. Saturday’s forecast features partly sunny skies with just a slim chance of an isolated shower or two in the afternoon hours.
We are only 2 days away from the First Day of Fall, and the forecast is starting to look a lot more fall-like for a few days at least. For Sunday, we will see mostly cloudy skies with windy conditions as winds blow 10-15 mph and gust to 20 mph.
We are in store for a beautiful weekend across the Chattahoochee Valley. We will see some isolated showers on and off on Saturday, but our highs will be in the mid-70s. We are starting to see these more crisp mornings, and we start out Sunday in the low 60s and upper 50s.
We saw the heaviest rain from Sally push through the Chattahoochee Valley already, but we will see more showers on and off throughout the day Thursday. It will be breezy at time with winds 5-10mph gusting up to 15 mph.
Sally strengthened overnight and is a Category 2 hurricane again. We could see some additional slight strengthening heading into the day before landfall, but it is expected that Sally will make landfall today as a Category 2 storm near the AL/FL border.
We are getting into a bit of a rainier pattern as we head into the work week. We will keep our highs in the low-90s for Monday, but it will be feeling a bit warmer than that with plenty of tropical moisture around.
Sunday’s forecast will be very similar to Saturday’s featuring highs in the upper-80s and low-90s and about a 50% coverage of showers and storms this evening. A few showers may linger overnight, but we will dry out for your Monday morning before more rain moves in during the daytime.
The deep tropical moisture that is sticking around the Chattahoochee Valley will continue to stick around this weekend. That means it is going to be another hot and muggy September weekend for us with highs in the low-90s and “feels-like” temperatures in the upper-90s and lower-100s.
Friday night we will see some showers around for kickoff time, but after that the rain coverage begins to drop off as we head into the overnight hours. So, if you are headed out for any Friday Night Football you may want to bring the umbrella just in case!
We just cannot kick this deep tropical moisture that has been hanging around the Chattahoochee Valley. That will keep us extra muggy again for your Sunday, and all this extra humidity will help to fire up some more showers and storms this afternoon.
We will see a pretty consistent weekend forecast for your Saturday and Sunday. Our highs will only be in the upper-80s, but plenty of tropical moisture sticking around from the remnants of Laura will keep us feeling like the upper-90s and even 100s.
We kick off the weekend with a few clouds around, and we will keep it that way for most of the weekend across the Chattahoochee Valley. We will see a pretty similar forecast for Saturday and Sunday with highs only climbing to the upper-80s and partly to mostly cloudy skies.
Friday Night Football Weather is a go! A few showers may still be out there by kickoff, but most of us will stay dry while keeping it warm and muggy. We will head into the weekend in the low-70s and will only get up to the upper-80s with a few showers around in the afternoon and evening hours.
We will see some scattered showers and storms for your Saturday afternoon, and some of these could linger into the overnight hours. We will keep it in the low-to-mid-90s for highs today but will warm up back into those mid-90s for Sunday.
We will keep it hot and humid for your Sunday, but we may see a few more showers around in the afternoon than we did Saturday. Regardless, it is still going to be hot with highs in the upper-90s in some spots and muggy air making it feel like the triple digits.
We end the week hot and humid with a few afternoon showers and storms around. Friday’s forecast features mid-90s across the valley, but we could be feeling even hotter with some mugginess nearby. For the weekend, we will keep it hot and mostly dry with highs in the mid-to-upper 90s.
