After a warm and dry Saturday across central Georgia we now have storms returning to the forecast. A line of storms move into Central Georgia this morning, and will linger through into the afternoon. As this line pushes through, severe storms are possible. The largest threat looks to be damaging wind and heavy rain. Tonight, things calm down and we are left with a breezy and cool evening. The work week ahead holds a beautiful stretch of weather.
Today's storm impacts:
One thing that will help to limit the severe potential for tomorrow is the timing of the storms. These storms will moving through during the morning and early afternoon hours, meaning the instability they have to work with will not be nearly as impressive as it would be if these storms were to arrive during the heat of the day. However, with this front really picking up, shear looks to be a concern when it comes to the potential for lifting. In short: a brief isolated tornado can't be ruled out.
The bulk of showers and storms will stay west of 75 until about noon. It looks like the greatest window to see storms become severe will be late morning into early afternoon. After lunch time, the biggest severe threat shifts east of 75. With ample forcing behind this front, the shear factor will be a concern when it comes to the potential for a brief tornado.
The bottom line is that strong to severe storms are possible from early morning through early tomorrow afternoon. The main threats will be gusty winds and heavy rain, but a brief spin up tornado cannot be completely ruled out. Regardless of any severe weather, this will be a big rain maker with many picking up over an inch of rain.
