Unseasonable warmth and an approaching cold front will combine to produce wet and, at times, stormy weather Wednesday. While many people don't think of December as a "severe storm" time of year, there is a marginal risk of severe storms today.
Out of the possible severe storm risks, damaging winds are the focus - with a 5% probability. The Storm Prediction Center places a lower than 2% risk of tornadoes today.
Rain became widespread across north Georgia and the metro area throughout the morning, with temperatures in the low to mid-60s in most areas.
As temperatures approach 70 this afternoon, thunder, lightning, and gusty winds can happen in some areas.
While most, if not all, storms should remain below severe levels, the risk is definitely not zero today for isolated severe-level storms, so stay alert and have your FOX 5 Storm Team app downloaded to get warnings, lightning and precipitation alerts, FOX 5 Live VIPIR, and video forecast updates!
