Good Sunday afternoon! 

I've been out enjoying the pollen filled day, so I'm sure I'll be paying for it tomorrow. 🙂 The count was up to 303 this morning, but it looks pretty hazy even without the high clouds, so my guess is it is higher this afternoon. 

Here's the big weather story, please read:

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Peachtree City GA
321 PM EDT Sun Mar 24 2019

...SIGNIFICANT LARGE HAIL EVENT POSSIBLE MONDAY LATE AFTERNOON
AND EVENING...

.SHORT TERM /Tonight through Monday Night/...

Main concern in short term period is threat for strong/severe
convection Monday afternoon and early evening.

Latest guidance still indicate that strong to severe hail event
on tap for Monday late afternoon and evening. As mentioned
previously, steep lapse rates with MLCAPE approaching 1000 J/kg
and strong deep vertical wind shear all coming together, best
combination of shear and instability over westcentral GA and ATL
metro areas. Hail up to or even larger than 2 inches expected.

Can`t rule out some brief quasi-linear storms and multicells, but
expecting to see mostly cells and supercells with weak rotation.
A little concerned that 12Z HREF (high res ensemble forecast from
SPC) shows some decent updraft helicity potential in and near ATL
metro 21Z-00Z. Can`t rule out brief/weak tornado in spite of very
weak low level vertical wind shear. Storms should move out and/or
dissipate by 10PM.

Precip amounts coming in a bit higher than prev forecasts, but
total amounts still less than 1 in. No issues with flooding
expected as soil conditions have dried considerably in the last 2
weeks. Could see significant rises on creeks/streams in fast-
response/urban basins in ATL metro, especially if storm becomes
slow moving supercell and tracks over a favorably-oriented/shaped
(WNW-ESE) basin.

 

Here's the current SPC Day 2 Outlook map and a portion of their discussion:

While acknowledging some spatial uncertainty exists, even with
   relatively modest moisture/destabilization overall, enhanced
   mid-level flow and relatively long supercell-conducive hodographs
   and relatively cool mid-level temperatures should allow for at least
   a few strong to severe thunderstorms mainly during the afternoon,
   although modest moisture/buoyancy should curb the overall risk. Hail
   and damaging wind gusts would be possible, with relatively
   weak/veered low-level winds otherwise keeping the tornado threat
   very low.

So keep a close eye on the weather tomorrow, I'll be here tracking whatever comes our way!

Hard to say. Only a teeny tiny chance for a tornado for you though, just not enough low level shear. Mainly a hail event.

Not a bad idea. My garage is full of garage sell stuff, so no room at the inn or I would do the same. :classic_rolleyes: 

Once I see how things are going, I may bring in some plants just to be safe.
