ATLANTA -

Parts of Georgia and the metro area could see severe storms on Wednesday as a powerful cold front moves in from the west. The threat includes the possibility of straight line winds, flooding -- even an isolated tornado.

According to FOX 5 Storm Team chief meteorologist Ken Cook, the storm system was moving across the southern states overnight and was expected to hit Georgia late on Wednesday morning and continue through the late afternoon.

Metro Atlanta should see the heaviest storms between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., Ken said.

The entire state is under a slight risk of severe weather, Ken says. That chance could be upgraded early Wednesday.

The main threat is going to be a strong squall line moving east, which could produce 50 to 70 mph wind gusts. There is also the chance of an isolated tornado just ahead of the squall line from late morning through mid-afternoon.

A High Wind Watch and a Flood Watch are in effect for late Tuesday night through Wednesday evening for several counties in northeast Georgia. Winds speeds could be 20 to 30 mph and gusting as high as 50 mph. Many areas could see anywhere from 1 to 2 inches of rain, with some mountain areas possibly seeing up to 3 inches, said Ken.
