Yard clean up from summer afternoon and evening thunderstorms is becoming a way of life for Marietta Georgia and the surrounding areas.
Georgia blue skies inevitably and quickly turn into dark clouds, followed by torrential rains, gusty winds, claps of thunder and intimidating white/blue lightning.
Some storms even cause a great amount of mischief, knocking out power, flooding streets and yards and felling trees.
Were you one of the unlucky ones to be left a mess of downed trees, power lines and other storm debris after severe thunderstorms swept through Georgia on July 15th, 2015?
One of the areas hit hardest by that line of storms was metro Atlanta. Numerous trees were blown down in the Battle Ridge subdivision off Burnt Hickory Road just west of Marietta. One of those trees fell onto a house on Caisson Drive after snapping off at the base of its trunk.
The forecast: more of the same. The storms can be expected near daily, or at the very least, a few times a week.
It coincides with high temperatures, which results in more rain as a counter to hot days. Should anyone be surprised? Of course not.
Georgia’s weather is typical of a humid subtropical climate with most of the state having mild winters and hot, muggy summers. Thunderstorms thrive under these conditions. The two most basic elements that cause a thunderstorm to develop are moisture and rapidly rising hot air.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Service, approximately 1,800 thunderstorms are occurring at any given time. That is about 16-million thunderstorms every year. All that adds up to a lot of storm detritus.
