A cold front is expected to push across north and central Georgia this week, ushering in warmer weather and maybe some severe thunderstorms, according to the National Weather Service.
"Instability and wind shear values appear sufficient to support the development of scattered to numerous thunderstorms on Wednesday, especially during the afternoon and evening," meteorologists say in a hazardous weather statement. "Strong upper level support suggest a few storms could be severe across north and central Georgia."
There's a slight chance of showers today (20 percent) in Stone Mountain and Lithonia, high of 70, while Wednesday holds a 100 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, some of which could produce gusty winds, according to the local NWS forecast. Thursday is expected to be mostly sunny with a high near 50.
Extreme north Georgia may be in for a dusting of snow as a weak system is expected to move across the area Thursday night and early Friday, according to the statement.
