Stay with Channel 2 Action News throughout the day as our Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologists track the storms.
Heavy rain began to fall in the southern counties around midnight and continued overnight in metro Atlanta.
Severe Weather Team 2 says the atmosphere has stabilized, but could become unstable again.
Strong wind shear, along with areas of instability, could cause major problems through sunrise on Sunday along and south of Interstate 20.
Severe Weather Team 2 is watching a chance for severe storms in the area from LaGrange to Griffin to near Eatonton and southward.
A relatively rare Particularly Dangerous Situation (PDS) tornado watch has been issued for central and southern Alabama, including Randolph County.
PDS - particularly dangerous situation - watches are NOT issued often. This is a dangerous weather event we're watching tonight @wsbtv— Brian Monahan, WSB (@BMonahanWSB) January 22, 2017
With enough instability, there is a potential for long-tracked, strong tornadoes.
A flash flood watch has been issued for all of north Georgia through Sunday night.
