After the possibility of severe nighttime weather was gone early in the morning, the sky should be clear and sunny until lunch time, Burns says.
This is both a good and a bad thing. It's good because you do not have to cancel all your Saturday morning plans. This is bad because no cloud means that the sun will have the chance to heat Atlanta to 90 degrees, which will only become the fuel of the afternoon storm, Burns said. Do not cancel them but stay WEATHER WEATHER! Scattered storms heat up during the day and some may be strong or intense with potentially dangerous wind and hail. The risk of tornado is low. #gawx pic.twitter.com/ME3u8TOAfH
