ATLANTA (AP) - Forecasters say the potential for severe thunderstorms will be greatest Tuesday in parts of western and south Georgia.

The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch spanning more than two dozen counties in southwest Georgia that is set to expire at midnight. Forecasters say severe storms are also possible throughout Georgia Wednesday as a cold front moves in.

The storms are expected to strike areas in west Georgia — such as Dalton, Rome, LaGrange and Columbus — between Wednesday morning and the afternoon. Storms are possible from noon to 8 p.m. in eastern parts of Georgia.

The storms could cause damaging wind gusts and heavy rain.

Forecasters expect the heaviest total rainfall from the storms - more than 4 inches in some spots - in southwest Georgia.
