ATLANTA — A line of strong storms is expected to move across the metro early Monday morning.
“This round of wet weather will be impacting most of us on our Monday morning commute,” Severe Weather Team 2's Katie Walls said.
Around 3 a.m., light to moderate rain showers will start to move into the western part of north Georgia.
The line will move into to northwest Georgia around 5 a.m. Monday and will continue to move east across Rome, Carrollton and start entering into the metro by 7 a.m.
“This line could become a bit quicker,” Walls said. “We’re going to be dealing with headaches on the highway because of the current situation. You combine that with some gusty winds, lightning, as well as some heavy rain, all a possibility on your Monday morning commute.
The storms will become more widespread between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m.
“We’re not anticipated wide-spread severe weather,” Walls said. “I am, however, worried about hiccups on the highway.”
Walls said to allow yourself some extra time for the morning commute because of the possibility of low visibility.

By around 1 p.m. most of those storms will have moved out of the metro with a clearing sky behind the front.
A high wind advisory is also in place from 8 p.m. Sunday until 4 p.m. Monday for the north Georgia mountains.
It mainly affects locations about 2,000 feet, where people could see downed limbs and trees from gusts that could reach more than 40 mph.
Things will dry out for a couple of days, but there is another round of potentially severe storms heading our way Thursday into Friday.
