The National Weather Service has put Polk County and the surrounding area under the gun once again as Peachtree City forecasters have set the region under a slight risk of severe weather for Sunday evening and night into Monday.

Chances of showers and thunderstorms begin overnight after 3 a.m., per the latest forecast from the NWS. The chance for rain was 20%, and upped the chances for Monday to 50% to cap off the Memorial Day weekend festivities.

Wet weather is possible for Monday afternoon between 3 and 4 p.m. as well.

Temperatures are up to 86 for the day tomorrow, and the forecast calls for at least a quarter inch of rain possible.

Potential for thunderstorms include hail, high winds, and thus far low risks for tornadic activities and flooding.

Chances for severe weather increase heading northward into Dade County, Northeast Alabama and Southern Tennessee for Memorial Day.

Sunshine returns for the rest of the week to cap off May, and chances for rain return by the weekend to open the month of June.
