(CHANNEL 1 ATLANTA) ATLANTA GA
[UPDATED: MONDAY MARCH 18TH 2013 @ 2:40 AM ET]

There is a “Slight Risk” for Severe thunderstorms Today over most of North & West Central Georgia according to the Storm Prediction Center.

The main threat will be damaging winds up to 60 mph, although small hail, lightning, and heavy rains will also be possible.

[NEW]
There is now a 30% chance of a Tornado or 2 today across mainly North GA and the western areas of SC with a slight chance of a tornado across the rest of the Southeast. The best time for this event would be between Noon & 8pm during the hottest part of the day as the cold front passes. Although there is a slight risk for a Tornado today across North GA including the Atlanta area and this should not be taken lightly, this will not be a major tornado outbreak.

Stay with us for further updates. We will be here all day Monday to monitor this storm. Follow @stormwchamerica on Twitter for the latest Watches & Warnings and follow @channel1atlanta on Twitter for the latest storm related updates, news, storm reports, and additional Watches/Warnings.
