A tornado watch remains in effect through 3am Sunday for Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky.
The Storm Prediction Center continues with a "moderate" risk for Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and northwest Alabama. The "slight" risk extends into northwest Georgia for overnight into early Sunday morning.
So far, the worst of this system looks like it will be to the west of us. The line will move east overnight tonight into Sunday morning. It will weaken as it moves in. We don't think the storms will be as strong over us as they are to the west. However, as the storms weaken, some of them could be strong enough to producing some damaging winds and maybe even an isolated tornado.
The timing of this system brings the line into NW Georgia between 4am and 6am Sunday morning. It moves into the metro area between 9am and 12pm. The rain will stick with us through the afternoon. We could pick up between 1 and 3 inches before it all moves out later on Monday. There is also a Flood Watch in effect through Monday morning. If you live near a river, creek or stream, or if you are in a flood prone area, watch for rising water.
