The danger of violent thunderstorms will reach the Atlanta area on Tuesday.

The strongest thunderstorms on Tuesday will be capable of producing damaging winds, hail and flooding downpours. A tornado touching down cannot be ruled out.

Some storms are expected to continue into Tuesday night around the Atlanta area, making it more difficult to see approaching storms.

The severe thunderstorms will not only be confined to the Atlanta area with storms spreading across much of the Southeast.

At this time, it does not appear like Wednesday's storms will produce much in terms of severe weather. However, people should still be alert for flash flooding with some heavier storms.
