Showers and thunderstorms will increase in coverage this evening across west-central and northwest Georgia, gradually moving east across the area overnight into Sunday morning. A few storms could be strong to severe, mainly west of I-75, with the primary threats being damaging winds between 40 and 60 MPH, and locally heavy rain. A brief tornado is not out of the question but that threat is very low at this time. The persistent rainfall overnight into Sunday morning could lead to isolated flooding, especially in poor drainage, urban and low lying areas. Many areas could see up to 1 inch rainfall, with locally higher amounts to 2 or more inches possible.
