Strong storms popped up across the metro Atlanta area on Thursday, and more could be on the way Friday.

Storms that had been expected earlier in the day split and went around north Georgia, but some areas still saw some severe thunderstorms throughout the day and into the night.

Some more storms popped up after 3 p.m., according to FOX 5 Storm Team Chief Meteorologist Ken Cook. A severe thunderstorm warning was issued in some counties as the system moved south.

Around 8:30 p.m. the system once again began to get active and more warnings were issued in the metro area.
