This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for northeast Georgia, piedmont
North Carolina, western North Carolina and upstate South Carolina.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon across the
region. The coverage and intensity of the thunderstorms will likely
be highest across northeast Georgia and Upstate South Carolina,
especially locations southeast of Interstate 85. The thunderstorms
will likely struggle this afternoon farther north as a more stable
wedge of cool air will set up closer to the Interstate 40 corridor.
Cloud to ground lightning strikes and occasionally heavy rain will be
the main threats with any afternoon thunderstorms in northern tier
sections. Large hail and damaging wind gusts will be more likely in
southern tier sections, especially from Toccoa to Anderson to Union,
and points south.

A more organized line of showers and thunderstorms will likely
arrive from the west just after Midnight and sweep east through the
Interstate 77 corridor during the early morning hours. These
thunderstorms will be more likely to produce damaging winds, though
large hail and an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out across the
region. Locally heavy rain is possible as well, especially near the
southern and eastern parts of the mountains.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

..Friday...No hazardous weather is expected at this time.
..Saturday...No hazardous weather is expected at this time.
..Sunday...No hazardous weather is expected at this time.
..Monday...No hazardous weather is expected at this time.

hail, damaging winds, tornadoes or flash flooding to our office.
