Severe thunderstorms possible Election Day, November 6th

 – The FOX 5 Storm Team is tracking a powerful storm system that will bring strong to severe storms on Election Day across north Georgia.

The confidence is high that this fierce line of storms will bring heavy rain with the possibility of damaging winds and isolated tornadoes. It’s too soon to know which part of our viewing area will have the greatest impacts, but we want all of you to be aware of the possibilities. As we get closer to this event, we will be able to give you a pinpoint forecast.

Right now the models are indicating that the first half of Tuesday will have the strongest storms with decreasing rain chances throughout the day. This is a fluid part of the forecast and is likely to change between now and Tuesday, but we will continue to update this forecast as needed.
