Radar from NE Alabama showing 60-75 MPH winds at around 4,000 feet off the ground coming out of Cherokee County AL... heads up for Floyd and Chattooga counties in next hour or so, should it hold together.

Tornado Probability is only 2% though, right?

Very low chance of a tornado, and even then in these linear setups they are typically very weak, short lived, and mostly non life threatening.

For those south of I-85 and west of I-75... and especially in and around the Columbus area, storms from Pike to Macon county (ALABAMA) are intensifying with a radar confirmed tornado with the Pike County cell (per NWS Birmingham). Keep a close eye on things in the next 2-3 hours as this area approaches the GA/AL state line and be prepared to take immediate action to seek shelter.

Broad circulation plus strong straight-line winds now entering Chattooga county, especially between Lyerly and Menlo.

@NorthGeorgiaWX & @KingOfTheMountains

Based on what you have seen in the past, and what the radar is showing, and your own personal opinions, what do you think Dawson County, specifically Dawsonville and the area by 400, will see today?

Would have to wait and see to say better as it's still a ways to go, but this morning I'd expect mainly general thunderstorms some potentially strong as the line still shows signs of weakening and collapsing. Then we'll have this afternoons development, if any, that the NAM and HRRR adament on showing.

Cloudy and sprinkling in NW Cobb.  Just looks like a rainy morning -- as of right now.

Nothing much is happening where I am.  We haven't even hurt a single rumble of thunder.  No big winds.  Just some rain.  So I think that is good news!

May have had a brief spin up, funnel west of Blue Ridge. Had some power flashes as it peaked in tightness. I can't share the velocity gif I captured, file too large.

Just your general rain and thunderstorms. There is a tornado warning was down south near Dothan AL, but that's it. It appears that for round one, north Georgia may be ok.

And the Tornado risk is even lower for the next round?

That would be more of a hail risk

Same here in Lumpkin County...just a nice rainy morning, thus far. Getting ready to settle in with my library books and enjoy it!
