(STORM WATCH AMERICA) ATLANTA GA
[UPDATED: TUESDAY APRIL 16TH 2013 @ 7:40 PM ET]

A Severe Weather outbreak is expected on Wednesday across the central US with a TORNADO OUTBREAK expected as well in south OK and north TX.

The Storm Prediction Center is Norman OK for several days now has had a good chunk of the central US under a “SLIGHT RISK” for Severe thunderstorms for April 17th and a “MODERATE RISK” inside the slight risk area.

Dr. Greg Forbes of the Weather Channel has placed much of southern OK and Northern TX under a “6”, (a 60% chance of a TORNADO within a 50 mile radius), on his TOR-CON Index page.

Elsewhere, Damaging winds and large hail will be the main threats. Colder air in KS and northern OK may hamper any severe weather threat there.

I’m expecting this system to move into the metro Atlanta area on Friday at this time. Right now it looks like we may see a few strong thunderstorms here, but the main threat for Severe is expected to be south & east of the Metro area at this time. STAY TUNED!
