THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF GA...NORTH CENTRAL GEORGIA...NORTHEAST GEORGIA...NORTHWEST GEORGIA AND WEST CENTRAL GEORGIA.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT...

FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FOR MOST OF NORTH GEORGIA.

RAIN WILL CONTINUE SPREADING INTO NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA
TONIGHT. SOME OF THE RAINFALL ACROSS NORTH GEORGIA COULD BE HEAVY
WITH RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 1 TO 1.5 INCHES POSSIBLE BY SUNDAY
MORNING. ISOLATED AMOUNTS AS HIGH AS 2 INCHES ARE ALSO POSSIBLE.
WHILE THIS IS NOT EXPECTED TO PRODUCE FLASH FLOODING...RUNOFF FROM
THIS RAIN COULD PUSH A FEW CREEKS OR RIVERS TO BECOME BANKFULL
WITH LOCALIZED MINOR FLOODING AS WELL AS PONDING OF WATER ON
ROADS.

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

THE NEXT SYSTEM WILL BRING MOISTURE INTO NORTH GEORGIA THURSDAY
NIGHT. TEMPERATURES ACROSS SOME MOUNTAIN VALLEYS COULD REMAIN
BELOW FREEZING THURSDAY NIGHT AS THE RAIN BEGINS PRODUCING
FREEZING RAIN. THIS COULD MAKE A FEW ROADS SLICK.

ON THE BACK SIDE OF THIS SYSTEM...SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL BRING IN
WARMER AND MORE UNSTABLE AIR WHICH MAY PROVIDE THE NECESSARY ENERGY
FOR THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT. TRENDS WILL BE MONITORED AS THE
EVENT DRAWS CLOSER FOR THE POTENTIAL STRENGTH OF THESE STORMS LATE
FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED THROUGH TONIGHT...HOWEVER
REPORTS OF FLOODING ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
