Refresh this story for the latest updates.

ATLANTA — Just as on Saturday, the 11Alive StormTrackers are watching for the possibility of strong to severe storms over parts of north Georgia for late Sunday afternoon and Sunday evening.

According to 11Alive Meteorologist Wes Peery, the primary threat from the storms will be damaging wind gusts, torrential rainfall and dangerous lightning.

The National Weather Service has placed parts of north Georgia, including areas to the north and east of Atlanta, under a Level 1 risk area for severe storms. The far northeast corner of the state, including parts of Rabun and Towns counties, are under a Level 2 risk area for severe storms.

With all of that being said, strong to severe storms are possible over all parts of north Georgia, much as they were on Saturday.
