FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY: Strong storms possible Sunday

Weather Alert Day Friday Severe storms expected

Another good night to leave those windows open. A stronger cold front and storm system moves in by the beginning of the weekend, so we'll call for a 20% rain/storm chance by Friday.slightly better by Saturday at 30% as the front moves through.

Behind the front, there will be another blast of cooler air moving in on Monday. Expect more cloud cover with warm temperatures.

Higher mountains will see accumulating snow over the next 3 days. Forecasts call for a dry, mild Monday with daytime highs only reaching the low 60s. Windy conditions will persist again throughout the day.

We're keeping a close eye on Sunday for the likelihood of heavy rain and possible severe thunderstorms. An isolated thunderstorm is not out of the question.

Tuesday morning will be chilly with 40s and 50s before warmer weather returns for the rest of the week.

Threats: Strong to severe storms are likely.

By evening, scattered rain and gusty storms will spread over more of north Georgia.

The possibility of tornadoes or hail are listed as low, but with the enhanced risk, isolated tornadoes can not be ruled out. Everything looks to move out by sunrise on Monday, so this will not be a whole day event.

That's not all, it's also packing a severe weather threat with numerous tornado and severe t-storm watches in place.

A pretty quiet week in store once we get through Monday. High temperatures will only be in the lower to mid 60s. Highs today will top out in the low 80s inland to the mid 70s along the coast.

A powerful weekend cold front will bring lots of rain, the risk of a few severe storms, and an abrupt end to our current warming trend! Afternoon temperatures will be in the mid-50s with winds gusting to 20 miles per hour for a much cooler than normal mid-April day.
