THIS MORNING WOULD BE ACROSS WESTERN GEORGIA.

THE SECOND ROUND OF THUNDERSTORMS IS EXPECTED DURING THE AFTERNOON
/GENERALLY AFTER 3PM/ AND LASTING INTO THE EVENING. WHILE THERE IS
MORE UNCERTAINTY WITH THIS SECOND ROUND IN TERMS OF COVERAGE OF
STORMS...SEVERE WEATHER PARAMETERS SUGGEST A GREATER THREAT OF
SEVERE WEATHER WITH THIS AFTERNOON/EVENINGS ROUND OF
THUNDERSTORMS. SEVERE STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS ALL OF NORTH
AND CENTRAL GEORGIA...BUT THE BETTER CHANCES ARE ACROSS THE
NORTHERN AREAS. DAMAGING WIND...HAIL AND TORNADOES WILL ALL BE
POSSIBLE WITH THE SEVERE STORMS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING.

WITH RAINFALL AMOUNTS TODAY AND TONIGHT FORECAST TO BE AROUND ONE
TO ONE AND A HALF INCHES...WIDESPREAD FLOODING IS NOT
