Around 2 a.m. a line of showers and storms moved through north Georgia that included lightning, damaging winds and hail. 

Around sunrise, the showers and storms moved through the metro and out of most of the region.  


What viewers can only get on Channel 2 Action News:

  • Updated hour-by-hour forecast showing rain moving in for the holiday weekend. 

  • Updated hour-by-hour temperature forecast showing temperatures warming to near 90 degrees for part of the holiday weekend. 


By 11 a.m. that system was completely out of the region, giving way to a partly cloudy sky. 

“At this point, it looks like your Sunday afternoon will be mainly dry,” Walls said.

Walls said that will change come Monday, where she is predicting a higher risk for severe storms.

“We’re facing the potential damaging wind, large hail and lightning on Memorial Day,” Walls said. “It looks like widespread storms are on tap for your Monday.”
