(STORM WATCH AMERICA) ATLANTA GA
[UPDATED: THURSDAY JUNE 13TH 2013 @ 4:33 AM ET]

Severe thunderstorms are likely Thursday afternoon and evening across all of North & Central GA as a cold front plows it’s way into the metro area from the north.

Part of the same system bringing severe weather Wednesday night from Chicago into the Ohio Valley is expected to deminish as it approches the Tennessee Valley early Thursday morning then fire back up again with daytime heating in southern TN by late morning.

This system will move into and across North & Central GA Thursday afternoon and evening bringing with it damaging winds of 70 mph or greater, hail up to 2″ in size and there is a slim chance of a Tornado somewhere across the area but i think the main threat will be the damaging winds. Lots of dangerous cloud to ground lightning is expected with these storms so be alert if you plan on being outdoors or out and about Thursday. Also be aware of lightning while on area lakes. If you hear thunder, you are close enough to be struck by lightning.

[TIMING]

NORTH & CENTRAL GA: 2pm – 10pm
METRO ATLANTA : 4pm – 8pm

[THREATS]

LIGHTNING : 80%
DAMAGING WINDS : 80%
LARGE HAIL : 60%
