A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for most of the Metro Atlanta area until 8pm, that means conditions in the atmosphere are favorable for additional severe storms and warnings.

The threat of a tornado is not zero but it is very low. But thunderstorm wind gusts to 70mph are possible in a few storms, along with hail up to 1-inch in diameter in the stronger storms.

In addition to damaging winds there is also a risk of flooding.

Not all of the storms will be severe, many will be ordinary. The worst of it will be shifting South and West of Atlanta as the afternoon goes along.
