ATLANTA — After a morning round of showers and storm that brought down trees and power outages to more than 1,000 people, more damaging weather is in the forecast.
A severe thunderstorm watch will likely be issued soon for part of Georgia as storms develop.
Timing with this system is a little tricky, storms may arrive in the Atlanta metro as early as 2 p.m. or as late as 5 p.m. No matter the timing, damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph will be the biggest concern.
Partly cloudy skies will allow for our atmosphere to recharge with energy for storms to feed off of later this afternoon and into the evening.
Most of the Atlanta metro is under a level 2 or slight risk for severe weather.
In eastern Georgia, tornadoes are possible in addition to the risk for damaging wind gusts and hail.
