(CHANNEL 1 ATLANTA) ATLANTA GA
[UPDATED: MONDAY SEPTEMBER 17TH 2012 @ 2:45 AM ET]
There is some interesting weather headed this way, (Atlanta) this morning as an upper level low and a cold front collide over the South and East next 48 hours! After the cold front moves across Georgia Tuesday, temps could drop as low as 45 in the north Georgia mountains as early as Wednesday night into Thursday night. Then a warm up by the weekend.
In the meantime, there will be a clash of the air masses! As you may or may not know, there are 2 Severe Weather seasons in Georgia. One in the spring, and the other in the fall as the seasons change from extreme hot to cold.
Now it looks like a weather system is developing this morning that could bring parts of Georgia some Severe Weather today. Right now, it looks like the best chance for Severe will mainly be in Central Georgia late this afternoon into early evening. However, the Storm Prediction Center says this morning in it’s latest Severe Weather Outlook for today that parts of North Georgia could see an Isolated Tornado!
For the Atlanta area, the best chance to see any isolated Tornado, (chance 20%), will be south of an Cedartown to Roswell to Gainesville line.
For the rest of Georgia, the best chance to see a Tornado, (about 50%), will be south of an Lagrange to Macon to Sandersville line.
Also in these areas, the other Severe threat today will be damaging winds in excess of 60 mph. There is a low to zero chance of hail, most areas.
The very second it looks like there is going to be a threatening Tornado event in GA, we will be on the air immediately LIVE!
