This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Georgia.

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and Tonight...

This cold front will sweep across the entire area tonight into
Sunday morning. A line of showers and a few thunderstorms will
accompany the front, bringing a period of moderate to heavy rain,
gusty winds and occasional cloud to ground lightning. Some storms
could become strong to severe, especially across northwest and west-
central Georgia, late tonight into early Sunday morning. Isolated
damaging wind gusts and even a brief tornado are possible. An
additional 1/2 to 1 inch of rain can be expected, however locally
higher amounts can be expected.

Outside of any showers or storms, gusty winds will develop later
tonight, especially in the higher elevations of north Georgia. Due
to saturated grounds, trees will be more prone to being uprooted as
the winds pick up overnight. More details can be found in the Wind
Advisory product.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday...

The cold front will continue to move across central Georgia Sunday
morning with showers and a few thunderstorms possible. A storm or
two could become strong to severe with damaging wind gusts or a
brief tornado possible. A brief period of locally heavy rain can be
expected with the cold front.

Behind the front, gusty northwest winds 20 to 30 MPH will occur.
With these winds, some trees will be more prone to falling due to
the saturated grounds from persistent heavy rains.

.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.

...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING...

The Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of north central Georgia...northeast Georgia and
  northwest Georgia...including the following areas...in north
  central Georgia...Cherokee...Dawson...Fannin...Forsyth...
  Gilmer...Hall...Lumpkin...Pickens and Union. In northeast
  Georgia...Towns and White. In northwest Georgia...Bartow...
  Catoosa...Chattooga...Dade...Floyd...Gordon...Murray...Polk...
  Walker and Whitfield.

* Through Sunday morning

* Soil conditions remain saturated and river levels remain high
  across the area. The potential for locally heavy rainfall will
  continue through tonight. Rainfall totals up to 1 inch, with
  locally higher amounts possible in any stronger storms. This
  amount of rainfall will produce significant runoff and
  flooding of creeks and rivers.

* Periods of heavy rain can overwhelm or clog storm drains and
  ditches with debris and cause extensive street flooding and
  road ponding. Take time ahead of the rain to clear leaves and
  debris from drainage systems. Due to the extremely saturated
  soils, downed trees will be likely, even with sub severe
  winds.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
