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

...SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TODAY...
...A FEW SEVERE STORMS ARE EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING...

WEATHER HAZARDS EXPECTED...

THE MAIN THREATS WILL BE STRONG TO DAMAGING WINDS... FREQUENT

COULD OCCUR ANYWHERE TODAY... THE BEST CHANCE FOR SEVERE STORMS
WILL BE MAINLY ALONG AND NORTH OF A LA GRANGE TO MACON TO
SWAINSBORO LINE.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY...

THE GREATEST RISK FOR THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE SATURDAY AND SUNDAY...
AND A FEW STORMS COULD BECOME SEVERE DURING THE AFTERNOON AND
EVENING HOURS. A SLIGHTLY LOWER CHANCE OF AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND
