AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - All eyes are on Nicole and the impacts it will bring to the CSRA today through Friday.
Nicole is expected to bring us rain starting around midday and last through Friday. The greatest impact we will likely see from Nicole is a tornado threat from tropical rainbands moving through later this afternoon into early Friday. The greatest tornado risk in the CSRA is going to be for areas south of I-20. Stay weather aware through Friday morning. The Storm Prediction Center has the CSRA under a marginal to slight risk for tornadoes this afternoon through Friday morning.
Heavy rain from Nicole will bring over 1″ in most areas, and likely between 2-3″ based on latest guidance.
