NASHVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) -- Late-day thunderstorms in south Georgia have been isolated Tuesday, but the few that have formed have been capable to causing hefty wind gusts.

One such isolated storm developed in Berrien County around 3:45 p.m.  It quickly built to a strong level, causing heavy rain, frequent lightning, and occasionally strong wind gusts.

According to the National Weather Service, a report of downed trees was relayed by public observers east of Nashville.  The trees were located on private property but also impacted a nearby road.

Other isolated storms are occurring in interior south Georgia, mainly moving southeast.  A few more areas of heavy rain and thunder rumbles are possible through the late-night hours.  The most-intense thunderstorms may produce gusts and frequent lightning.  The overall severe weather threat is low but any storms through mid-evening may become briefly intense.
