EARLY MORNING STORMS IN NORTHWEST GEORGIA
A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is posted until 8am for Dade, Walker, Murray, Whitfield, Chattooga, Catoosa, and Floyd counties as storms roll across Alabama very quickly. These storms can bring damaging wind gusts and some hail, as well as frequent lightning. The storms should wind down pretty quickly near sunrise - leaving a day that isn't as wet as Sunday. However, with a cold front passing through, we'll begin to see a few more showers and thunderstorms developing later today. It is possible (generally southeast of Atlanta) that a few storms could become severe again in the afternoon. Outside of that threat, it will otherwise be mostly cloudy, breezy, and warm. West-southwest winds at 10-20 mph will help temperatures reach the mid 70s today until the cold front passes.
DRYING OUT FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS
Behind the cold front, we'll finally get the best break from rain we've had in over a week! Tuesday and Wednesday will be dry with temps very pleasant. Highs will hit the 70s and lows will be in the 50s.
MORE WET WEATHER FOR THURSDAY
Scattered showers will creep back into the forecast for Thursday and linger into Friday and Saturday. Highs will remain in the 70s though and severe storms are not expected.
