(CHANNEL 1 ATLANTA) ATLANTA GA
[UPDATED: TUESDAY MARCH 5TH 2013 @ 12:30 PM ET]

There is a “Slight Risk” for Severe Thunderstorms today across portions of North & Central GA including #Atlanta according to the Storm Prediction Center.

The main threats from this storm will be Damaging Winds, & Hail, but a few TORNADOES can not be ruled out.

A powerful, fast moving storm system and cold front will be moving into and across the Southeast US over the next 24- 36 hours. Temps ahead of the front on Tuesday will be very mild. Behind the front very cold conditions. This clash of the airmass along with a fast moving storm system will bring the chance for Supercells to develop mainly late afternoon Tuesday into Tuesday evening.

Some of the other areas affected across the Southeast US include, eastern AL, and western SC.This will be an isolated Severe Weather event over an isolated area of the country, but it just so happens these weather systems will collide later today right on top of us and there maybe enough push to create a few Supercell storms, a few of those could also spawn a Tornado or 2.

The best time for Severe Weather in the Atlanta area and central GA today will be from 3pm to 9pm. This will be very fast moving system. It will be turning very cold & windy already by 6pm in Atlanta with light snow falling in the mountains by midnight. Up to an inch of snow is possible by morning in far NE GA.

Please stay with us all day for further updates and live coverage.
