The Storm Prediction Center has put all of Central Georgia in an enhanced risk for severe storms Monday. It is a threat level of 3 out of 5. Primary concern will be damaging winds as a line of storms pushes through Central Georgia.

Spin-up tornadoes possible along the line. Timing will be around noon to 8 p.m.

Limiting factor that could help us out: Clouds and storms along the Gulf hogging some of the unstable air and thus lowering the threat. Still up in the air if that will happen at this point. Something to watch as of now. As of 9:35 a.m., severe storms are only in South Alabama and Florida Panhandle. 

Threats: 

  • Strong damaging winds
  • Hail
  • Isolated tornadoes
  • Flooding rain

The timing on this system looks to be Monday afternoon through the first half of the overnight.

Make sure to stay on top of updates through the next day as the situation continues to evolve.
