Today, the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has identified an area in south Georgia where there is a slight risk that severe weather will be experienced, over a broad enough area and widespread enough to warrant the risk. Almost the entire southern half of Georgia as well as much of Alabama, Mississipi and the Florida panhandle should be aware of the potential for severe weather this afternoon and evening.
This is a heavy precipitation event, so any severe weather will likely be accompanied by heavy rainfall. The initial wave of storms has pulsed through to the south and the second wave is expected within the slight risk area to initiate along the sea breeze outflow boundary, which is a typical weather pattern for summer afternoons in the south. Locally strong microbursts could potentially occur. The instability should fuel thunderstorms this afternoon and into the evening.
Tomorrow, the entire state of Georgia is contained within an area that the Storm Prediction Center has identified to have a slight risk for severe weather. Unfortunately, this event is expected to arrive early in the morning and the deep shear will support strong updrafts. The storms in this system could arrive ahead of the main system during the overnight hours. Weather radios should be in use through all of Georgia overnight tonight.
