Strong storms possible for north Georgia Saturday morning

A round storms will be possible to start the weekend, but it won't be a complete washout.

ATLANTA — Friday has brought a few showers to the region for some and those rain chances are expected to continue into this afternoon and overnight.

While we only have a few non-severe showers today, areas to our west are under a threat for widespread strong to severe storms.

Parts of Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Mississippi, Arkansas and Tennessee are under a rarely seen high (level five out of five) risk for severe weather Friday afternoon.
