Severe Thunderstorm Warning

ATLANTA — We're keeping an eye on the potential for scattered storms that are expected to develop into the late afternoon and early evening on Saturday.

After the first round of rain that moved through in the morning, warming and instability could lead to storms in the early evening hours. At this point, the chances for severe storms are slightly higher to the south of I-20. Meanwhile, tornado risk is very low.
