Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central Georgia
National Weather Service Peachtree City GA
401 AM EDT Tue May 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A wet and unstable pattern will continue through Wednesday as a
series of low pressure systems move across the Southeast region.
The first wave, today, could bring another 1 to 2 inches of rain
to the area, especially along and south of I-20 and I-85. Locally
higher amounts are possible, especially with any thunderstorms.
Storms along and south of a Columbus to Macon to Augusta line
could also be severe with isolated damaging wind gusts and even a
brief tornado.
