ATLANTA — Severe storms and the potential for isolated tornadoes are in the forecast for Georgia as the state recovers from record-breaking cold.

The National Weather Service says that strong thunderstorms appear possible on Saturday, and that isolated tornadoes will be possible with any thunderstorms that become severe.

The weather service projects that Atlanta will reach a high temperature of 60 degrees on Saturday, with an 80 percent chance of precipitation.

The severe weather threat comes after temperatures finally climbed above freezing across much of Georgia late Wednesday morning.
