AUGUSTA, GA (WRDW/WAGT) -- Be prepared for numerous severe storms Thursday. We're looking at damaging straight line winds and flooding rains as the primary impacts, but an isolated tornado is possible.

A strong cold front brings that possibility.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed the CSRA under an "enhanced" risk for severe weather for Thursday.


A flash flood watch is in effect for most of the CSRA until Friday morning.

A watch means conditions are favorable for flooding. A warning means flash flooding is currently happening.

Heavy rain will also be a concern for the possibility of urbanized flash flooding. There is moderate confidence in damaging winds and flash flooding, but lower confidence in the tornado threat.
