Burns said the main area of ​​concern for these storms would be mainly to the east and southeast of Athens, down to Eatonton and around the lake, near Lake Oconee.

"You really have to wait for possible heavy or severe thunderstorms," ​​Burns said.

Late Saturday night things will decline again.

Burns said the biggest storm threats throughout the evening and Saturday will be a modest chance of hail, a high probability of frequent cloud-to-ground blasts and a high probability of damaging winds.

The rain will continue until the beginning of the new week, with rain probabilities every day until at least Wednesday.
