The risk of severe weather is lower for Sunday, although there is a small risk as instability increases in the afternoon in east central Georgia.

Expectations for occasional strong and severe storms Sunday morning have not drastically changed. A tornado or severe thunderstorm warning means that a violent storm has been observed or indicated by radar and will affect a narrow set of localities named in the warning. The northwest winds are bringing the smell of smoke from wildfires in Oklahoma. An isolated tornado is not out of the question. Flooding is listed as a lesser threat, with the exception of localized flooding from periods of heavy rain. We could see some of that rain turn over to snow flurries and showers during the overnight hours.

Take the same tools the WDAM First Alert Weather team uses with you anywhere you go. Our WTXL First Alert Weather app can tell you if a storm near you has hail, strong winds or rotation.
