There are no current severe weather watches or warning in north Georgia.

The storms caused the National Weather Service to issue a tornado warning for several metro counties early Tuesday morning. The front that is moving through has the capability of producing strong storms with rotation.

The same system produced a possible tornado that left one person dead and many others injured near Birmingham, Alabama.

Here’s what else you need to know:

  • The showers and storms are moving out of the area
  • Drier air will move in after the front moves through
  • High temperatures will reach into the 60s today
