The storms continued to weaken and gradually ended shortly after midnight.

On Sunday the risk for severe storms will be much lower for all of north Georgia. A few strong storms could develop with the main threat being damaging winds with torrential rain, frequent lightning and hail. 

Outdoor activities won’t be a complete washout, but at times you will need to delay them and let the storms pass.
