It’s a Weather Authority Alert Day.  Enjoy the break in the rain while it lasts.  The next round of wet weather will arrive around 2 p.m. near and along I-75 and then I-95 around 3 p.m.  Breaks in the clouds will allow the heat to build and combine with storm energy for locally heavy rainfall and thunderstorms, some isolated storms may become strong to severe.  There is a chance of the Tornado Watch to our west to move into SE GA after 2 p.m.
