FLOYD COUNTY EMA/NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE

Northwest Georgia remains under a Slight Risk for severe weather Monday.

A cold front will bring a line of showers and thunderstorms into north and central Georgia this afternoon through tonight.

A Slight Risk (2 out of 5) of severe weather is in place for portions of north and west Georgia, mainly along and north of a line from Lagrange to Athens.

A Marginal Risk (1 out of 5) of severe weather extends into central Georgia, to the south of the Slight Risk, and north of a line from Stewart county to Macon to Warrenton.

Primary concerns are for damaging wind gusts, though a brief tornado cannot be ruled out, especially in far northwestern GA. Locally heavy rainfall will also be possible with stronger storms that develop.

Timing for the Line of Storms

Northwest GA: 1 PM – 3 PM 

I-85 Corridor: 4 PM – 6 PM (impacting rush hour)

The line should start to weaken and become less organized as it moves south of the Interstate 85 corridor.

Thunderstorms should come to an end after midnight.
