Severe storms possible early Tuesday morning

A cold front will move in from the west late Monday night and begin to spread showers and thunderstorms across north Georgia.

The Storm Prediction Center has most of north Georgia in a level 1 or marginal risk for severe storms. Damaging winds to 60 mph, heavy rain and lightning will be the main threats. 

The timing of the storms will be such that those living in the west and northwest Georgia will experience the storms first as they enter in from Alabama.

 The storms will most likely weaken as they progress across north Georgia leaving areas east of Atlanta will little threat from the possibility of severe weather.

By late Tuesday morning, the front will have moved to the east ushering in drier air, and lots of sunshine.
