FOR STRONG STORMS WILL BE MAINLY ACROSS PARTS OF WEST CENTRAL

BOUNDARY PUSHING NORTH OF THE ATLANTA METRO AREA. TRAINING OF
STORMS OVER ALREADY SATURATED GROUNDS MAY RESULT IN MINOR
FLOODING.

THE GREATEST RISK FOR THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE SUNDAY AND MONDAY...
AND A FEW STORMS COULD BECOME SEVERE...MAINLY DURING THE
AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS. A SLIGHTLY LOWER CHANCE OF AFTERNOON
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP FOR TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY AS
