Thunderstorms expected throughout the day

Clarkesville - The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for Habersham and the surrounding counties.  There is a risk of severe thunderstorms this afternoon and tonight over the entire forecast area. The primary threat is high wind gusts, with some threat from hail, and a more remote threat from rotating storms. Rainfall could be, locally, heavy enough to cause isolated flash flooding, especially if storms train over the same area.  Another round of thunderstorms, some possibly severe, is possible on Friday.
