No major damage or flooding reports have come into Polk.Today following a night of storms moving through the county and Northwest Georgia at-large.

Polk County Public Safety Director Randy Lacey said that no reports of any issues have cropped up since severe weather pushed through Polk County at midweek.

The system – which spawned damaging tornadoes in Alabama – dumped rain on the local area before wet weather passed over and out of Northwest Georgia Wednesday night and this morning.

Potential threats for weather this morning prompted a two-hour delay in the opening of Polk School District and Georgia Northwestern Technical College campuses, along with the 10-county Health Department system.

No additional rain is expected over the next few days, but after the weather system moved through the area it brought with it windy conditions and the expectation of cooler temperatures.

Winter isn’t quite done yet, with the National Weather Service calling for a dip in the thermometer starting tonight to get down to 41, and by Saturday and Sunday night be at 35 degrees with daytime temps expected in the coming days to be in the mid 50s through the mid 60s. It’ll be next Monday before temperatures begin to feel seasonal again when Spring kicks off this Saturday.
