THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT...

...ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE ACROSS NORTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL
GEORGIA THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING...

...SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE ACROSS NORTHWEST AND WEST
CENTRAL GEORGIA LATE TONIGHT...

WEATHER HAZARDS EXPECTED...

THE PRIMARY HAZARDS FROM ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS TODAY WILL BE STRONG
GUSTY WINDS AND OCCASIONAL CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING.

THE PRIMARY HAZARDS TONIGHT...IS THE POTENTIAL FOR STRONG TO
SEVERE STORMS DEVELOPING AHEAD AND ALONG A SQUALL LINE THAT COULD
PUSH INTO FAR NORTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL GEORGIA BY 4AM LATE
TONIGHT. THESE STORMS COULD PRODUCE DAMAGING WINDS AND ISOLATED
TORNADOES.

DISCUSSION...

WEAK DISTURBANCES IN THE SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL INTERACT WITH A
DEEPENING MOIST SOUTHERLY SURFACE TO MID LEVEL FLOW TO BRING A
CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND A FEW THUNDERSTORMS TO PARTS OF NORTHWEST AND
WEST CENTRAL GEORGIA THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING.

INCREASING DEEP LAYER WIND SHEAR AND INSTABILITY AHEAD OF AN
APPROACHING COLD FRONT COULD ENHANCE STORMS ALONG AND AHEAD OF A
SQUALL LINE LATE TONIGHT. THIS SQUALL LINE COULD PUSH INTO FAR
NORTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL GEORGIA BETWEEN 4 AM AND 6 AM TUESDAY
MORNING.

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

THUNDERSTORM CHANCES CONTINUE THROUGH TUESDAY AND INTO TUESDAY
NIGHT...WITH SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL
POSSIBLE. WHILE THE FIRST ROUND OF STORMS MAY SEE SOME DIMINISHING
IN COVERAGE AS IT MOVES EASTWARD THROUGH MIDDAY... ANOTHER ROUND
OF STORMS MAY DEVELOP ACROSS WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE STATE IN THE
AFTERNOON AND PROGRESS EASTWARD INTO THE EVENING. STRONG DAMAGING
WINDS...ISOLATED TORNADOES...AND FLASH FLOODING WILL BE THE
PRIMARY HAZARDS.

THE REST OF THE WEEK LOOKS TO BE FREE OF THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL
FOR NOW.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT REQUESTED BUT SPOTTERS ARE ENCOURAGED
TO SUBMIT REPORTS OF SEVERE WEATHER THROUGH THE WEB BY GOING TO
WEATHER.GOV/ATLANTA.
