Atlanta Metro...Prepare for Severe Weather


Intense thunderstorms producing large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes are rapidly moving toward the Georgia border with northeast Alabama.  Atlanta is noted by the white circle with the red arrow toward the center of the image.

If the present storm track continues, this activity will move into the Atlanta area within 90 to 120 minutes.  Residents across northwest Georgia should remain very alert and be prepared to seek immediate shelter as threatening weather approaches.

I am so very scared for myself. We haven't had a drop of rain but nasty storms all around us. My heart and prayers go out to all of those actually getting hit.

Shamrock, your greatest risk of severe weather will come between 10pm and 1am Central Time (11pm and 2am Eastern time). Stay alert!

Shamrock, how did you guys come out last night? I saw some large hail reports just to your West and Northwest, but nothing for your area the way it looks (or at least nothing was reported by anyone).
