Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central Georgia
National Weather Service Peachtree City GA
255 PM EST Fri Feb 23 2018

.DISCUSSION...

A slow moving cold front will bring rain and thunderstorm chances
to mainly north Georgia Saturday and then area-wide Sunday.

No critical fire weather conditions are expected.

The extended forecast looks to strongly favor wet weather
through much of the coming week and favor north Georgia with
the greatest rainfall.
