Severe storms, isolated twisters possible Tuesday

Strong thunderstorms and isolated tornadoes are possible across much of Georgia on Tuesday.

The strongest storms, if they come, will likely strike in the afternoon and evening.

Another round could come Wednesday as a cold front shoves through.

Meteorologist Matt Sena of the National Weather Service’s Peachtree City office on Sunday said there was between a 15- and 30-percent chance for the worst storms.

“Pretty potent system for this time of year,” Sena said. “Very spring-like storm.”

He said the chance for ordinary thundershowers Tuesday and Wednesday was better than 80 percent.

Drastic temperature changes are not expected after the weather rolls through. Low temperatures will return to the 30s with highs in the 50s toward the end of the week.

“More what we’re used to,” Sena said.
