A system moving in from the west could bring some severe weather to Georgia on Thursday.

The storm system heading our way caused some damage in Arkansas on Wednesday. Strong storms in Lincoln County produced winds strong enough to overturn cars, and officials with the National Weather Service are in the area looking for signs of possible tornado damage.

According to FOX 5 Storm Team meteorologist Joanne Feldman, as the storm line moves in from the west, isolated storms could develop between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. The main line will work its way into northwest Georgia between 6 and 8 p.m. and into the metro Atlanta area between 9 and 1 a.m. on Thursday.

Some severe storms could be a part of that system. The main threat will come from strong winds, followed by hail, isolated tornadoes and flooding, says Feldman.

The rain and storms will clear out rapidly in the few hours before sunrise Friday, says Feldman.

Feldman says rainfall amounts will average 1 to 2 inches for many areas
