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

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

A Slight Risk for Severe Thunderstorms will be possible for two
rounds of thunderstorms this afternoon and overnight.

This afternoon scattered thunderstorms are expected with the
greatest coverage in the southwestern forecast area. With
sufficient instability and wind shear, damaging wind gusts and
large hail may be possible. Tornadoes are not likely, but if
storms become organized an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

Overnight tonight in the early morning hours, a line of storms
will be possible moving into northern Georgia after 3 AM. This
line will have the potential to produce strong straight-line winds
and a weak and short-lived tornado or two.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday...

Early Thursday will see a decaying line of storms in northern
Georgia with a diminishing threat for strong straight-line winds
and a weak, spin-up tornado or two. The threat for any severe
weather is expected to end by mid-morning.

A stronger storm system is expected across the forecast area on
Sunday and Sunday night. Severe thunderstorms may be possible with
this system, as well as a risk of flash flooding with two to three
and a half inches of rain forecast over a thirty-six hour period,
and locally higher amounts possible.


Spotter activation is not requested but spotters are encouraged
to submit reports of severe weather through the web by going to Please relay any information about observed
