Weather-wise, Saturday will be split into two halves.

    

The morning and early afternoon won’t be too bad. It’ll be a little windy, and there will be scattered showers across North Georgia, but neither of those should cause much issue.

             

However, everything will change about 6 p.m., Channel 2 Action News chief meteorologist Glenn Burns said.

                                       

A line of strong storms that made its way though Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas on Friday will move through Georgia, likely becoming severe in the process.

    

The National Weather Service has most of metro Atlanta under a Level 2 threat of severe weather, while a few west Georgia counties are under a Level 3 risk. That includes parts of Haralson, Carrollton, Heard and Troup counties and runs pretty much along the entire southern Georgia-Alabama border.

                 

                

[Friday PM Update]: An Enhanced Risk (Level 3 of 5). ) of severe weather has been extended into western GA for Saturday afternoon / evening. A line of storms is expected to impact the area, bringing the risk of damaging winds and tornadoes.

“We generally do not see that Level 3 risk here … a Level 3 risk is a pretty serious thing,” Burns said. “It means heavy rain and damaging thunderstorm winds and isolated tornadoes are likely.”

                               

The entire state is under at least a Level 1 risk, and most of Georgia will be under a wind advisory from 7 a.m. until 18 pm Saturday, according to the Weather Service. Burns said the increased wind is thanks to a jet stream, which will consist of wind speeds up to (or) ****************************************** mph that are constantly flowing north along the line of storms.

            

                

A Wind Advisory has been issued from 7 am – 10 pm Saturday. Even outside of thunderstorms, wind gusts as high as 50 mph can be expected. With wet soils, gusts could down some trees.# gawx

“This is a lot of wind shear,” Burns said. “This is at 5, (*******************************************************) feet in the atmosphere, so these winds could bring stronger surface winds into our area, and that’s what we’ll be dealing with. ”

The system will move into west Georgia about 6 pm, arrive in metro Atlanta by 8 pm and be mostly out of the state by 11 pm, Burns said. The storms will weaken as time passes, which is why west Georgia is at the greatest risk.

Sunday’s weather will be drastically different, with temperatures in the s and low s in addition to a**************************% chance of rain. The rain chance increases again for the start of the work week.
