Marginal Risks for Severe Storms

Unfortunately we are expecting a switch to a more active weather pattern coming up as multiple disturbances/frontal systems look to impact the area. This will bring several rounds of isolated to scattered thunderstorms (some possibly severe) to portions of north and central GA tomorrow (Thurs) through Saturday. MARGINAL risks for severe storms are across portions of north GA and west central GA both Thursday and Friday, and much of central GA is in a 15% area for Saturday, which could end up being a greater risk category with updates (see each day’s associated storm threats and graphics listed below). There’s uncertainty in timing of the multiple rounds, though overall the storms could be strongest in the afternoon and evening time frames.

Thursday storm threats (isolated strong/severe):
  • Damaging winds > 60 MPH
  • Isolated tornadoes
  • Large hail
  • Heavy rain / isolated flooding

  • Damaging winds > 60 MPH
  • Large hail (greater chance)
  • Isolated tornadoes
  • Heavy rain / isolated flooding
Friday Outlook
