We are watching a line of storms moving through Tennessee this afternoon. That line is moving to the south and east. We will see some of those thunderstorms move through NW Georgia beginning late this afternoon, then eventually toward the metro area later this evening.
So far, the storms in Tennessee have been below severe criteria. They have contained some heavy rain, lightning and winds that are just under "severe" status. As this line moves into Georgia, we will experience some pockets of heavy rain and lightning. We also have th potential for some strong winds accompanying some of the storms. Right now, it doesn't look like a widespread severe weather event. We are anticipating maybe have only a few severe thunderstorm warnings issued tonight.
The Storm Prediction Center has moved the "slight" risk area to the north and east of Georgia for the rest of the night into tomorrow morning. You can see that map update below.
