(STORM WATCH AMERICA) ATLANTA GA
[UPDATED: WEDNESDAY APRIL 10TH 2013 @ 12:39 PM ET]

The Storm Prediction Center has placed all of Georgia under a “Slight Risk” for Severe thunderstorms Thursday with an elevated risk now across North & west Central GA.

The main threats will be damaging winds, but a few tornadoes are possible.

The best timing on this system, (that is still uncertain), is from 6pm Thursday night into 2 am Friday morning for the Atlanta metro area & North GA.

I’m not expecting a major Tornado outbreak at this time, however a few tornadoes are possible in the area and any tornado is dangerous!

Please stay with us for further updates both here and on twitter @ stormwchamerica & @channel1atlanta. You can also goto our WATCH LIVE section to get a live feed from local TV stations across the southeast during severe weather.

[TORNADO WATCH]
WHEN A TORNADO WATCH IS ISSUED, IT MEANS THAT TORNADO CONDITIONS ARE “POSSIBLE” SOON AND YOU SHOULD MONITOR THE LATEST WEATHER FOR FURTHER STATEMENTS AND POSSIBLE WARNINGS. THIS IS THE TIME YOU SHOULD PREPARE WHERE YOU WOULD KNOW WHERE TO GO IN THE EVENT OF A TORNADO!

[TORNADO WARNING]
A TORNADO WARNING MEANS THAT A TORNADO HAS BEEN SPOTTED AT OR NEAR YOUR AREA! EITHER ON THE GROUND, OR BY RADAR! THIS IS THE TIME YOU SHOULD TAKE SHELTER RIGHT AWAY! DO NOT GO OUTSIDE AND LOOK FOR A TORNADO! DO NOT OPEN UP WINDOWS! DO NOT TRAVEL! YOU SHOULD EVAC YOU CAR AND MOBILE HOMES!
