Severe thunderstorm warning issued for parts of central Georgia

It will be feeling like spring over the next 24 hours, including the risk for strong to severe thunderstorms overnight for part of north Georgia.

A Severe Thunderstorm Warning has been issued for southeastern Spalding County, southeastern Henry County, Butts County, central Jasper County, and southeastern Newton County. Just west of Georgia, a Tornado Watch for Coosa, Clay, and Randolph counties in Alabama expired at 6 a.m.

The FOX 5 Storm Team tracked a radar signature showing possible rotation around 2:15 a.m. in the area of Cobb, Cherokee, and Paulding counties. That rotation prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Tornado Warning as a result. The NWS quickly narrowed down the warning to just Cobb County before lifting the warning just after 2:30 the rotation showed signs of weakening. There have been no reports of damage and no debris signature confirmed by radar. The severe cell continued through metro Atlanta, but no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The main storm window for Atlanta will be from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m.
