Another round of severe weather possible this afternoon, evening

Damaging wind gusts may bring down trees and power lines again.

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.

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.
