My local NWS office is KGSP to their north, and the WWA texts from there appear here too. I haven't paid close attention but it seems to me they do well keeping up with things in the northern parts of their CWA. Their messages are clearer and laid out better; many of mine have locations halfway down and others near the top. Peachtree is more consistent. They're up to speed on convective events but I haven't followed hydro events with them. I'm soon to be moving further south so I'll be watching them more closely as I'll then be within 50 mi (maybe less) of their CWA then.I wonder if the NWS office in Peachtree City can handle all these flash flood warnings across most of Georgia right now since the CWA covers almost all counties in Georgia.
We didn't have anything locally except some minor street flooding in the usual places, but KGSP blasted several FF warnings out which seemed uncalled for IMHO. The potential was there but no rivers or streams seem to have overtopped their banks or even came close. I think the mou8ntains had some of that. KGSP ain't what it used to be for accuracy and they "cry wolf" over anything at the drop of a hat so lots of local folks don't pay them any mind anymore (Plainfield syndrome). To their credit they are getting better deciding when to forecast against the CAM's predictions lately which has increased their accuracy. Upstate SC is sometimes very hard to forecast for, and this areas best forecasters have always had long experience here. KGSP lost that through transfers and retirements.
