Severe storms risk on Sunday PM

We stay on the warm side tonight as temperatures drop down to the mid and lower 60's.

Pleasant weather and cool overnight lows are expected for the remainder of the weekend. Nighttime temperatures will be in the middle 50s amid blustery south winds sustained at 25 to 30 miles per hour, gusting up to 45 miles per hour and potentially higher in a few storms. Expect another cool down Friday as a dry cold front cross the area.

Mostly cloudy, breezy and mild with a 20% chance for a shower.

The risk of severe weather is lower for Sunday, although there is a small risk as instability increases in the afternoon in east central Georgia.

The winter storm making parts of Minnesota miserable has lessened in its intensity Sunday morning, but icy road conditions are still challenging drivers in most areas. Chilly lows north around 48 and south around 50. We'll keep an eye on things. Warnings mean severe weather is happening and you need to go to a safe place.

Sunrise: 7:36 a.m. The system will clip the southern half of our area. Winds will increase on Monday and Tuesday from the south 20-30 miles per hour. Look for plenty of sunshine with a daytime high around 78 degrees on Sunday.

Some of the storms could bring some gusty winds, risky lightning and heavy rainfall.

After tomorrow a freeze is possible Tuesday morning before warmer temperatures in the 60s and even 70s return.

It will be VERY breezy; winds of 15-25 miles per hour with higher gusts will be capable of knocking down weakened tree limbs.
