ATLANTA - Some parts of north Georgia and metro Atlanta saw showers, and rain chances will increase overnight as a system bringing severe weather to other areas of the country moves through the state.
Severe Weather Team 2 meteorologist Brad Nitz spotted a few sprinkles in parts of Dawson and Hall counties across the north Georgia mountains. Some north metro counties are also saw drizzle Sunday afternoon.
TIMELINE FOR SUNDAY'S STORMS
Overnight Sunday - Mainly showers with isolated storms possible, but as a cold front drops down and moves into northwest Georgia, the showers and storms ahead of the front will bring the metro area a risk of heavy rain and a chance of isolated, severe storms near northwest Georgia.
Monday - Skies will clear quickly Monday morning setting us up for sun and breezy conditions.
Parts of Illinois, Indiana, southern Michigan and western Ohio saw severe weather, including tornadoes, large hail and damaging winds.
Isolated severe storms in the northwest means metro Atlanta will likely get scattered showers and a few storms. The primary threat would be damaging wind gusts if any isolated severe storms develop.
Conditions will clear up by Monday morning. Nitz expects comfortable temperatures with plenty of sunshine and a cool breeze.
