Tropical Storm Hermine slides south of Chattahoochee Valley

Columbus

The Chattahoochee Valley dodged a meteorological bullet as Tropical Storm Hermine passed safely to the southeast, said WRBL Chief Meteorologist Bob Jeswald.

“Another 50 miles to the northwest would have made a huge difference for us,” he said.

Hermine, which was downgraded from a Category 1 hurricane since it hit the Florida Gulf Coast, passed through south Georgia, heading into the Carolinas. It’s possible that this area could see some residual rain from the back side of the storm, Jeswald said, but it won’t be much.

“We could see some early showers Saturday, but it won’t be what we need,” Jeswald said. “Whatever showers we might see won’t be the kind we need.”

For the weekend, we can expect highs in the 80s and low 90s and overnight lows around 70.
