Weathercast: Severe storms on Wilson's radar for Sunday

TIMELINE | Strong storms expected this weekend Weathercast: Severe storms on Wilson's radar for Sunday
Jerome Frank | 16 April, 2018, 02:00

Windy conditions will persist again throughout the day. Though Sunday will be cloudier and perhaps even showery and therefore not as warm as Friday's mid 70s to lower 80s (82 at Roanoke was first 80-degree day since the record-smashing 84 on February 22) or Saturday's widespread 70s, temperatures will still warm considerably during the day into the mid 60s to lower 70s before this front pushes toward us in the evening. An isolated thunderstorm is not out of the question.

The roughest weather will be between 3 p.m. - 7 p.m. Make sure any loose items in your yard are tied down or in a covered shelter. Some of the storms can become severe. An isolated tornado is not out of the question.

By evening, scattered rain and gusty storms will spread over more of north Georgia. For that region around Winner, Mission, and Murdo, highs will only get into the low to mid 30s. Heavy rainfall will also be a threat.

Monday looks like a cool and sunny April day. The Storm Prediction Center has parts of SWGA under a slight risk for severe weather (2 out of 5). While we have a pretty good idea about where the strongest storms may develop, figuring out which one storm will be the strongest isn't possible. "That's coming this week as well - potential for storms and maybe severe Friday with a cold front coming through".

Wednesday is expected to have a high of 81 and a low of 54. Tuesday is looking cool and dry with highs in the low and mid 60s. Stay with WALB News 10 for updates as we continue to track these storms.

Looking ahead, temperatures in the middle of the week are expected to hover in the mid-50s, with lows at night dipping to near 40, Avery said.

Partly to Mostly cloudy, breezy, warm and humid with a 20% chance for a shower or storm.
