Isolated tornadoes possible with Georgia storms on Tuesday

ATLANTA (AP) - Forecasters say damaging winds and isolated tornadoes will be possible with thunderstorms expected to move into Georgia Tuesday night.

The National Weather Service said the highest risk of severe thunderstorms Tuesday night will be in northwest Georgia, around Dalton, Ringgold, Rome and Trenton. The weather service's Storm Prediction Center classifies the risk in that area as slight.

Forecasters say parts of Alabama will be at a greater, "enhanced" risk of storms earlier Tuesday, before the system moves into Georgia.

Nationwide, forecasters say strong storms will be possible Tuesday from the Gulf Coast all the way north to the Great Lakes.
