“Please be weather aware.”

That's the advice from Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Katie Walls as Monday's forecast for metro Atlanta sees a threat of severe storms, possibly including large hail, damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes.

There is a 100 percent chance of showers and storms, according to the Severe Weather Team 2 forecast.

Scattered rain was expected to build overnight Sunday and during the Monday morning commute, Walls said.

Luckily, Walls said, any showers metro Atlanta gets Monday morning won’t be severe. So wet roadways could be problematic for this morning, but the more troublesome conditions could arrive during the evening commute, she said.

“The severe threat arrives Monday afternoon and continues through Monday night,” Walls said.

The weather news on Sunday was more pleasant, with temperatures hitting the high 70s.

It’s “hard to believe that we're tracking the potential for severe storms when it's so beautiful outside,” Walls said Sunday.

But that’s exactly the case after the dry Sunday.

The possibility of hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes made the case for Walls’ succinct warning for metro residents.
