This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of North and Central
Georgia.

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

Tropical Storm Zeta is moving away from Georgia. Gusty winds 10 to
20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph are possible through the afternoon,
especially across the north, which could still bring down a few
trees or powerlines.

While the majority of rainfall and the flash flood threat has
diminished across north Georgia, lingering runoff will cause rising
water and potentially some minor flooding of rivers, creeks, and
streams.


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

A strong cold front, while mostly dry, will bring some of the
coldest temperatures of the season to the area for Monday and
Tuesday mornings. The far northeast mountains could have freezing
temperatures both mornings and other areas in north and central
Georgia could have some frost concerns, mainly Tuesday morning.


.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. Please relay any information about observed
severe weather to the NWS while following all local, state, and CDC
guidelines.
