Tornadoes are not in the forecast for the local area. The biggest threats this go around will be strong possibly damaging winds, hail and frequent lightning.
The latest run at this time of BUFKIT models indicate the roughest weather for the local area will be 4 thru 8 PM EDT. This is the best chance at seeing damaging severe weather. However, there is a chance before and after this time period for potential isolated severe storms. Still can’t rule out a rouge supercell passing through the area, or a squall line forming.
Areas to our east look to be in for a rough ride as well. Day time heating will help destabilize the atmosphere a bit more and the storms should gain some strength as they head towards Macon.
North towards Atlanta, strong winds and hail look to be the biggest threat. An isolated tornado can’t be ruled out at this time in northern Georgia.
