(STORM WATCH AMERICA) ATLANTA GA
[UPDATED: WEDNESDAY MAY 22ND 2013 @ 6:35 AM ET]

As seen in the image above, The National Weather Service in Peachtree City GA says there is a “Slight Risk” for Severe Thunderstorms today across Northwest Georgia. Strong storms are expected across all of North & Central GA today as a weak cold front approaches.

Now with that said, i would expect a few severe storms today, but i am NOT looking at the same situation at all as they had in OK on Monday.

And with that said, always remember, a severe thunderstorm can produce an isolated brief small tornado with little warning any time of the year.

[THREATS]
*CHANCES YOU WILL SEE THE FOLLOWING THREATS WITHIN 50 MILES OF ATLANTA GA

LIGHTNING : 90%
DAMAGING WINDS : 60%
LARGE HAIL : 60%
FLOODING : 50%
EF0-EF2 TORNADO: <20%
EF3-EF5 TORNADO: 0%

[TIMING]

The best chance you will see strong to severe storms Wednesday in Atlanta & North & Central Georgia will be between 2pm to midnight.

[ALERTS]

This is going to be a LIGHTNING event today more than anything. If you hear thunder, please go indoors away from windows right away. Inspect your house asap after the storm. Lightning can cause house fires quickly. If you are on area lakes, keep a radio with you and/or a weather app to keep you updated. If you see dark clouds developing and hear thunder, a storm could be headed your way!
