The National Weather Service is warning that severe weather might be moving through the area through the midweek and into Thursday.

Don’t expect to get to spend St. Patrick’s Day enjoying the green of the coming spring days outside, with a wet forecast in store for Polk County continuing after a washout of a day on Tuesday.

Severe weather is expected as the morning hours develop and extending into Wednesday night and Thursday. An 80% chance of showers is expected for Wednesday, and the Peachtree City forecasters are calling for the potential for some storms to have strong wind, heavy rain, potential for large hail and tornadoes through Wednesday and Thursday.

Flooding could also be possible with heavy rainfall in localized low areas.

They ask that as the forecast evolves into the coming days, the NWS’ severe weather outlook includes Polk and surrounding counties in Northwest Georgia.

The largest likelihood for severe weather is during the overnight hours Wednesday and into Thursday.

Temperatures are expected up to 70 for the day, and down to 57 overnight. Thursday’s forecast also calls for a high of 70, and down to 43.

Check back for weather updates throughout the rest of the day and into Thursday as advisories and warnings are issued as needed.
