Two to 8 inches of rain have already fallen on parts of north and central Georgia, prompting concerns of flash flooding, extensive street flooding and isolated significant flooding, according to the National Weather Service.
Most of Georgia, including Johns Creek, is in for a deluge as two rounds of heavy rain likely start Thursday and continue through Tuesday, so get your rain boots and umbrellas ready. Two to 4 inches and 4 to 8 inches of rain have already fallen on north and central Georgia, respectively, since the beginning of February, prompting concerns of flash flooding, extensive street flooding and isolated significant flooding, according to the National Weather Service's Hydrologic Outlook, which covers Fulton and a slew of other counties in north and central Georgia. Storms systems moving in and expected to bring moisture into the Gulf are to blame. Widespread rain is expected early Friday through Saturday along with periods of heavy rain again …

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for north Georgia, which warns of light snow and black ice from Thursday afternoon to Friday morning.
Snow is expected across north Georgia Thursday afternoon and night, according to the National Weather Service's winter weather advisory, which goes into effect at 1 p.m. and replaces the previous winter storm watch. A "cold polar air mass" is expected to spread into north Georgia as widespread rain shifts south. The result: Rain will mix with and change over to snow across portions of north Georgia, including Johns Creek and North Fulton County. The heaviest snowfall would be in the northeast Georgia mountains. The winter weather advisory, which lapses Friday morning at 7, warns of light snow and black ice north of a Carrollton-to-Atlanta-to-Jefferson line and south of a Rome-to-Hiawassee line. Less than 1 inch of the white stuff is …

Johns Creek could get its first glimpse this winter of the white stuff as rain across north Georgia may turn to snow with the arrival of a deep cold air mass.
Johns Creek and North Georgia could get the first snow of the winter and 2013 on Thursday night, according to the National Weather Service. A strong low pressure system and ample Gulf moisture will meet, resulting in widespread rain and an associated deep cold air mass that will begin to spread across north and central Georgia on Thursday afternoon and evening, meteorologists say in a special weather statement. As a result, rain could change over to snow across parts of north Georgia. Despite recent unseasonably warm temps, residents could see some light accumulations of snow across parts of north Georgia by mid to late Thursday afternoon or evening, mainly on elevated and grassy surfaces. While folks as far south as a LaGrange-to-Athens …

Johns Creek is set for a wet week of cooler temperatures as a cold front moves into Georgia. Freezing temperatures could arrive next week.
Following a warm weekend in the 70s, Georgia is set for rain, cooler temps and maybe even a blast of cold air from the north. A rainy Monday and Tuesday accompany cooler weather and a cold front, as it moves from out west to the east by midweek, according to The Weather Channel. It's not yet clear how far south the cold air would reach as the jet stream dips. Forecasters give Johns Creek a 100 percent chance of rain on Monday, when the high is expected to reach 58, and 30 percent chance on Tuesday with a high of 56, according to the National Weather Service. Showers are expected to taper off Wednesday and Thursday, as low temperatures dip to 40 and 33, respectively. Today's rain should taper off by 1 p.m. Highs are forecast for the mid 50s…

Skies should be mostly cloudy, with only a 10 percent chance of rain during parade.
Heading out to Johns Creek's annual Founders Day Parade on Saturday? You're in luck, as The Weather Channel predicts some clouds with little chance of rain. Skies are predicted to be mostly cloudy around 10 a.m. Saturday at the parade's kick-off, with clouds diminishing as the day wears on. But bring a jacket or coat, and maybe some gloves, as highs will only reach around 50 degrees by 10, and will climb to a high around 60 by mid-day. Umbrellas shouldn't be necessary, with only a 10 percent chance of precipitation that diminishes to 0 percent by 2 p.m. And don't forget that portions of State Bridge Road between Morton Road and Kimball Bridge will be closed from about 8 a.m. to noon.
