  A Marginal risk of severe weather means that "Isolated" severe storms will be possible.  This will not be a major severe weather outbreak for the region.  Isolated severe storms are in the forecast for Atlanta, Columbia and Charlotte.  If you live in these areas you will need to be prepared for severe storms.

Severe Weather Threats

The main severe weather risks will be large hail and damaging winds with a very low chance for tornadoes.  This means hail up to 1" in diameter is possible and wind gusts over 60 mph could take place.
