Tornado warning ends, but strong storms approach

POSTED: April 10, 2009 6:56 p.m.

A third tornado warning for Hall County has expired, but strong storms remain to the west and could move into this area.

Earlier another storm moved into northeast Hall County near Lula, according to the National Weather Service radar.

Tornado warnings remain in effect in several Northeast Georgia counties. (Click here to see which counties are under watches and warnings.)

There have been no incident reports at this time in Hall or White counties.

Earlier Friday, tornadoes ripped through Arkansas, Kentucky and Tennessee Friday.

The most severe weather is in Northwest Georgia, but some of it is moving in this direction.

"We've gotten reports of trees down and large hail" said Lans Rothfusz, meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service.

The weather is expected to clear up overnight, making way for nicer weather Saturday and Sunday.

It should be sunny or partly cloudy with temperatures in the high 60s through the weekend.

Other than a chance of rain early on, it doesn't look like there will be much rain next week.

"Sunday night into Monday night, showers and thunderstorms are likely," meteorologist Shirley Lambeck said. "The rest of the week looks pretty dry."

It will be a stormy Friday, but mild, sunny weather is predicted for the rest of the weekend.

"This morning there should just be some scattered showers and maybe isolated thunderstorms," said Jessica Fieux, a forecaster with the National Weather Service.

The rain should clear out in a few hours she said, but another round of storms expected to start around 4 p.m.

Fieux said Gainesville is "under a moderate risk from the storm prediction center," meaning there is a possibility hail, damaging winds and even an isolated tornado.

"We've already had hail reports today over the northwestern portion of the state so there's a good possibility we could see that again later today," Fieux said.

The weather is expected to clear up overnight, making way for nicer weather Saturday and Sunday.

It should be sunny or partly clouldy with temperatures in the high 60s through the weekend.
