The Storm Prediction center has expanded the Enhanced Risk across nearly all of central Georgia, and also expanded the Slight Risk across more of north Georgia.
Confidence is increasing on a more widespread threat of severe weather, including isolated to scattered tornadoes (some could be significant) and damaging wind gusts.
Scattered storms ahead of and along a cold front – mainly this afternoon into early evening. While a more organized line of storms is expected closer to the front, some more discrete single severe storms could develop ahead of the line and still have potential for tornadoes.
Tornadoes will be most likely in the Enhanced Risk and Slight Risk areas. While most should be brief/weak, a few stronger more significant tornadoes could occur.
Given all the recent rainfall, downed trees and powerlines are more likely with wind gusts, along with increased chance of flash flooding and river flooding.
