(CHANNEL 1 ATLANTA) [ATLANTA, GA.] UPDATED THURSDAY 4/5/2012 @ 6:13 AM ET
As i said yesterday, the weather can change at a moments notice. Now the Storm Prediction Center has placed all of Georgia under a “Slight Risk” of Severe Thunderstorms today.

{MAIN THREATS}
**70% CHANCE OF- GOLFBALL SIZED HAIL OR LARGER – THIS WILL BE THE #1 THREAT
**40% CHANCCE OF- DAMAGING WINDS UP TO 60 MPH OR GREATER
**20% CHANCE OF A TORNADO
>Again this “Risk” of all the above is for everyone in the state of Georgia!

{PREDICTIONS}
The weather event that would have limited severe weather today is not happening. As of 5:30 am et this morning, there was no widespread convected activity along the gulf coast. About 90% of the time when there is activity along the gulf during a threat of severe, it “cuts off” the gulf for extream weather for North Georgia. this morning a storm system is developing in MS, ARK, LA along with a cold front heading in this direction. Temps will be in the 70s and 80s today all across GA. And it looks like we will get enough daytime heating and sun to fire strong storms this afternoon and evening. At this time, the best time for activity will be between 2pm and midnight et in North & Central GA and overnight in eastern and southeast GA. There will be a cold pool of air with the low coming in this afternoon. This will cause the main threat today to be large hail. Damaging wind is also possible with some of the storms.

{TORNADO THREAT}
There is now a 20% chance someone will see a Tornado today in GA. It’s really hard to say “who” and “where” until the storms approach, but even with only a small risk of maybe 1 Tornado or 2 in the area today, you should take that risk seriously! That 1 Tornado, could be approching your home! Just to be clear, this WILL NOT be a major tornado outbreak today, but one Tornado, damaging wind storm, or hail busting out windows, is one too many!
