THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA.
.DAY ONE...REST OF TONIGHT...

...SCATTERED STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS LIKELY ACROSS
NORTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL GEORGIA AFTER MIDNIGHT...

WEATHER HAZARDS EXPECTED...

THE PRIMARY HAZARDS ARE DAMAGING WINDS AND VERY HEAVY RAIN WITH
FLASH FLOODING POSSIBLE. AN ISOLATED TORNADO CANT BE RULED OUT. THE

DISCUSSION...

THE SQUALL LINE IN ALABAMA IS EXPECTED TO PUSH EAST INTO NORTHWEST
GEORGIA AROUND 1 AM.  INSTABILITY AND VERTICAL WIND SHEAR SHOULD BE
SUFFICIENT FOR A FEW OF THE STORMS IN THE LINE TO BE SEVERE WITH
DAMAGING WINDS. A FEW BRIEF...GENERALLY WEAK TORNADOES WILL ALSO BE
POSSIBLE ALONG THE LINE OR IN CELLS JUST AHEAD OF THE LINE.

THE STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO WEAKEN AFTER 3 AM AS VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
AND INSTABILITY DECREASE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY...

STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE TUESDAY AFTERNOON.
THE FIRST LINE SHOULD CONTINUE TO WEAKEN AS IT MOVES ACROSS EASTERN
GEORGIA THROUGH THE MORNING. HOWEVER...A SECOND LINE WILL LIKELY
DEVELOP TO THE WEST IN THE AFTERNOON AFFECTING NORTH GEORGIA AND
POSSIBLY PARTS OF MIDDLE GEORGIA THROUGH MID EVENING. THESE STORMS
MAY BE MORE ISOLATED BUT COULD PRODUCE LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING
WINDS. THE STORMS SHOULD WEAKEN OR MOVE OUT OF THE AREA BEFORE
MIDNIGHT TUESDAY NIGHT.

NO THUNDERSTORMS OR OTHER HAZARDOUS WEATHER IS EXPECTED THE REST OF
THE WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT REQUESTED BUT SPOTTERS ARE ENCOURAGED
