ATLANTA — The 11Alive StormTrackers are watching an area of scattered strong thunderstorms across portions of north Georgia.

There is a low chance that some of the storms may reach severe limits as they pass through the region. 

Heavy rainfall and frequent lightning are possible with any storms that move through the region, but they are expected to decrease in intensity after the sun sets.

So far, a couple of severe thunderstorm warnings have been issued, but most of the storms that have passed through the region have remained below severe limits.

Meanwhile, down in the Gulf of Mexico, we are also watching Tropical Storm Cristobal. Tropical Storm Watches and Warnings have been issued for portions of the Gulf Coast in anticipation of a landfall late Sunday or early Monday.
