Severe weather risk

Parts of North and Central Georgia have a risk of damaging straight line winds and hail today. Isolated flooding possible thanks to the already wet soils.

The complexity of the atmospheric set-up makes defining the most certain location and timing more uncertain than usual.

While a tornado is not out of the question odds of that are very low. But frequent dangerous and destructive lightning along with damaging winds are possible in the strongest storms.

There’s a chance the worst of it will miss much of the Atlanta area, but the specialized models for thunderstorms are all over the road so to speak. Level 3 risk out of 5 in and near orange.
