ATLANTA -- The Storm Prediction Center has updated their outlook for Wednesday afternoon and evening, placing much of central and north-central Georgia, including portions of Metro Atlanta, in a "slight risk" area for severe weather.

Showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain, vivid lightning and high winds are possible in and across the area through the afternoon and into the evening hours.

11Alive Meteorologist Allison Chinchar says a danger facing the area with Wednesday's round of storms is an increased possibility of flash flooding.

Allison also says that with roots weakened by a lack of rain over the past few months, wind gusts as low as 40 mph may be enough to topple some trees.
