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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT...

EASTERLY WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO BRING INCREASING MOISTURE TO THE
AREA TODAY AND TONIGHT...ALLOWING FOR A RETURN OF NUMEROUS SHOWERS
AND SCATTERED THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY. AREAS ALONG AND SOUTH OF A
ROME TO ATLANTA AND MACON LINE WILL SEE THE BEST CHANCES FOR
THUNDERSTORMS. A FEW STRONG STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON
WITH A LOW END SMALL HAIL THREAT. HOWEVER...OCCASIONAL TO
FREQUENT CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING WILL BE THE MAIN THREAT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY...

A SERIES OF UPPER DISTURBANCES AND INCREASING ATLANTIC MOISTURE WILL
CONTINUE THE NUMEROUS AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH
THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEKEND. NEXT WEEK REMAINS UNCERTAIN DUE TO
THE HOSTILE CONDITIONS CURRENTLY BEING EXPERIENCED BY TROPICAL
STORM ERIKA WHICH IT WILL NEED TO OVERCOME TO SURVIVE THE NEXT
SEVERAL DAYS. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST TRACK BRINGS A WEAKENED SYSTEM
TO THE FLORIDA AND GEORGIA STATE LINE BY LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT AS
THE FORECAST TRACK HAS SLOWED SIGNIFICANTLY. THIS WOULD RESULT IN
A HEAVY RAIN SCENARIO BY MID WEEK FOR MUCH OF THE SOUTHERN TIER OF
OUR AREA WITH FLOODING THE MAIN CONCERN. PLEASE STAY TUNED TO THE
LATEST FORECASTS FROM THIS OFFICE ON THIS DEVELOPING WEATHER
SYSTEM.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED THROUGH TONIGHT.
