Storms Moving SE/Temps Dropping | News
After wall to wall coverage with tornado warnings this morning, we aren't really getting too much in the form of damage reports. Only a few trees and tree limbs down mainly south and east of Atlanta.
The storms continue moving to the south and east and will push away during the afternoon. The tornado watch remains in effect until 4pm, however, I expect many counties in the metro area to be removed from the watch at any time.
The cold front is moving through now. That front is pushing the rain and storms away. It is also ushering in the cooler air. We already reached our high temp for the day. It was 70 degrees overnight. At the 1pm hour, it is 60 in Atlanta with 50s in NW Georgia. The colder air will continue to blow in on some brisk NW winds for the rest of the day and overnight. Look at the contrast in temps in the map above. Temps range from the lower 70s in Eastonton to the upper 50s in NW Georgia. Lows by Saturday morning will be near freezing in many areas.
