.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight...

...TORNADO WATCH IN EFFECT FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST CENTRAL GA
THROUGH 6 PM THIS EVENING...

...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FOR PORTIONS OF NORTH AND ALL OF CENTRAL
GA THROUGH WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON...

Increased instability and wind shear for late this afternoon into
evening will allow for isolated tornado potential across portions
of central Georgia...mainly south and east of a Irwinton to Wrens
line. Isolated flash flooding is still possible along with
lingered runoff in the wake of showers/storms.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday...

Additional thunderstorms are expected to develop overnight and
into Wednesday afternoon. Some strong to isolated severe
thunderstorms will be possible with damaging winds, hail, and
heavy rainfall being the primary threats although isolated
tornadoes will also be possible. While 1 to 3 inches of previous
rainfall has occurred, an additional 1 to 2 is possible with
isolated higher amounts, therefore flood concerns warrant the
continued Flash Flood Watch until Wednesday afternoon.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not requested but spotters are encouraged
to submit reports of severe weather through the web by going to
weather.gov/atlanta.
