Scattered strong storms possible this evening

We're looking at a chance for scattered showers and storms Saturday, some of which could be strong to severe -- but then a bit of a break from the humidity will move in for Sunday. 

During the morning hours, a cold front will sag down from the north, sparking off some showers and storms in the overnight hours. It's set to cross into Georgia by late morning, bringing with it a chance for showers and storms here. 

The Storm Prediction Center puts the entire FOX 5 viewing area under a "marginal" (or Level 1) risk for severe weather, and the main threats being strong winds and small hail.  Although we could see showers in the late morning/early afternoon across North Georgia, the best chance for storms will be a little later in the afternoon, as daytime heating creates a less stable atmosphere and the front is crossing through the state.  Once we get to the late evening hours, drier air will be moving into North Georgia, setting up a hot but much more comfortable Sunday. 

The cold front will stall out in middle Georgia, so storm chances Sunday will be focused to the south of the FOX 5 viewing area.

Highs Saturday and Sunday will remain near 90 degrees, and humidity creeps back up starting Monday, with the chance for afternoon showers and storms also increasing again in the week ahead.
