A weakened Sally brings the risk of flooding across the Southeast on Thursday as another storm in the Atlantic gathers strength.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) issued its final advice to Sally early Thursday, saying the center of the storm was near Montgomery, Ala. It packed 30 mph wind with movement northeast at 12 mph.
“Tropical Depression Sally is still producing heavy rainfall over eastern Alabama and western and central Georgia,” the NHC said.

Sally continues to weaken as it moves across the southeast and into the Mid-Atlantic before being picked up by a cold front and out to sea on Saturday.
Heavy rain, strong winds with some isolated tornadoes will be the biggest risks along the course of this system.
Up to 6 inches of rain is possible over parts of Georgia, while the Carolinas could see up to 10 inches of rain in some places.
The threat of tornadoes shifts from southern Georgia and northern Florida in the morning to eastern Georgia and much of Carolina’s Thursday night.
The second storm we will have to keep an eye on in the Atlantic Ocean is Hurricane Teddy, which is now a category 2 storm with winds of 105 km / h and is approx. 625 miles east-northeast of the Lesser Antilles, according to the NHC.

Teddy is expected to become a major hurricane as it moves closer to Bermuda this weekend, perhaps with a direct hit.
Then the system could be pushed closer to the US, possibly by New England late next week, but so far there are no other storms affecting the US in the next five days.
Large swells generated by Teddy are expected to reach the east coast before the weekend and are likely to cause life-threatening surf and tear current conditions.

The cold front, which will push Sally offshore, is bringing much cooler air into the Upper Midwest, Great Lakes and then across the eastern United States this weekend.
Meanwhile, the West is still on fire with over 80 major forest fires burning across the region.
Critical fire conditions also continue for parts of Oregon, Northern California and the Great Basin.
Poor air quality and smoke are still prevalent throughout the region, extending into the central United States and even into the Northeast.
There is some moisture moving into the northwest for the next few days that will bring the temperature down and produce some much needed rain in the region, but we could also see a risk of stronger thunderstorms as well as a few tornadoes.
