The National Weather Service has updated the chance of severe weather for southwest Georgia this afternoon and tonight.
“The Storm Prediction Center has extended the slight risk area farther eastward into portions of southwest Georgia and the Florida panhandle. The main threats continue to be damaging wind gusts and large hail with impacts to trees and power lines. However, we cannot rule out an isolated tornado or two. It is possible that a tornado watch could be issued for portions of our area later this afternoon, most likely across the western half of the area. The attached graphics show the updated risk area as well as our estimated timing for the greatest threat.” — National Weather Service, Tallahassee
