I'm in Atlanta and live in Paulding County seeing light cloud cover with breaks at times which beams the sun down. I guess we will see were the day goes my set high is at 66 so we shall see how it goes.

I think most of the Metro will be saved by the arrival time overnight. We tend to get saved by this more then not.

Nasty storm just north of Shreveport/Bossier, LA with a SVR. It has that "look" to it. Already called my parents because they are in the warning.

Tornado narrowly missed my parents house by about a quarter of a mile. Suprisingly, they didn't hear anything nor lose power but for a few seconds. They are going to check on things.

Areas affected...west-central Louisiana...specifically southern
Vernon County

Concerning...Tornado Watch 700...

Valid 161733Z - 161800Z

The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 700 continues.

SUMMARY...Based on recent radar and environmental data, a strong to
potentially intense tornado with potential peak winds of 110 to 155
mph (EF1-EF3) is likely ongoing.

DISCUSSION...Recent radar signatures from KPOE and KLCH as of 17:31z
reveal an intense supercell characterized by a 0.5-0.9 degree
rotational velocity between 61 and 70 kt. A tornadic debris
signature has also been noted on recent radar scans. These
signatures are occurring in an environment characterized by STP
between 4 and 5. Previous signatures within similar environments
produced tornado-damage-estimated wind speeds from 110 to 155 mph
and confidence is high for likely strong to potentially intense
tornado. A tornado is ongoing and may continue based on the
rotational velocity continuity and the storm moving within a
favorable downstream environment.
