A weak EF0 tornado briefly touched down in South Western Fulton County at around 2:36 AM along Welcome All Ter SW. A few trees were uprooted or snapped behind some homes along that street.  The tornado continued northeast downing small limbs and lofting debris. NWRadar detected lofted debris at about 1000 feet as the tornado crossed Delano Road. Ground evidence suggested that this was mostly small limbs and leaves as there wasn’t widespread damage on the ground but more sporadic large limbs and an occasional tree down. The storm continued Northeast crossing North Commerce drive were several trees were snapped or uprooted in between 2 large warehouses. No other damage was noted in the area. A debris signature continued to be present on radar. The storm crossed Interstate 285 and then Washington Rd where a large tree was downed causing minor damage to a house. Several trees were snapped behind a home along Janice Drive and along Karen Road before lifting.
