Tracking rain and storms moving closer

Staying warm with thunderstorms approaching

We are tracking 3 waves of rain and storms moving through our area over the next few days.  The first round arrives this evening and overnight.  This line of rain will have a little thunder and lightning with it. We don't expect widespread severe weather with this first round in metro Atlanta or north Georgia.  We will see this first line weaken a bit as it moves through our area.  A few lingering showers will still be around early Friday.

We shattered the record high temperature on Thursday.  The record for Thursday's date is 69 set in 1950.  We hit 75 in the afternoon.  This is also the 8th day in a row with temperatures at 70 or above in January.  

Friday will be a little more quiet after the showers move out early.  We will continue with mostly cloudy skies with high temperatures still warming into the low 70s.  

The next round of rain comes in on Saturday.  This will have the potential for severe storms beginning early Satrurday, then tapering off later in the day.  The main threats will be strong wind, thunder, lightning, large hail and isolated tornadoes are possible.  We should have a break in the action late Saturday.

The third round of rain and storms arrives on Sunday.  We will also have a severe weather threat.  We are still working on the timing of this.  We hope by the end of the day, the severe weather threat will diminish.  There is a chance for a few lingering showers early Monday, then it will dry out for Tuesday with slightly cooler air. 

We will cool down by the end of next week.
