Severe weather, tornadoes, some snow possible in midstate

Destabilized air over Middle Georgia could create severe thunderstorms capable of spawning isolated tornadoes into this afternoon.

The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch until 2 p.m. today for most of Middle Georgia.

Storms capable of producing damaging winds, large hail and funnel clouds are expected.

Temperatures drop significantly from Saturday's forecast high of 65 to a high in the mid 40s Sunday. Middle Georgia could see some snow before 1 a.m. Monday but little or no accumulation is expected.

North Georgia may receive up to an inch of snow but there is much uncertainty based on the track of the storm. Forecasters think the greatest chance for snow accumulation is north of a line from Atlanta to Athens.

Today's tornado watch includes the counties of: Baldwin, Bibb, Bleckley, Butts, Crawford, Crisp, Dodge, Dooly, Hancock, Houston, Jasper, Johnson, Jones, Lamar, Laurens, Macon, Monroe, Peach, Pulaski, Putnam, Taylor, Telfair, Treutlen, Twiggs, Upson, Washington, Wilcox, Wheeler and Wilkinson.
