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

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

A cold front is expected to move into the state late tonight
through Monday morning. Heavy rainfall is expected across far
northern GA beginning late today through tonight with the front.
As a result..some localized flooding of creeks and streams is
possible especially in the higher elevations of North and
Northwest Georgia.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday...

Confidence is increasing that multiple rounds of rain can be
expected across much of the area through Friday, with 2 to as much
as 8 inches possible by the end of the week. The highest rainfall
amounts at this time are expected across northwest Georgia. An
increased threat for river and stream flooding is likely through
the week as rain falls over saturated grounds. Localized flash
flooding will also be possible, especially over the complex
terrain of north Georgia.

Plenty of uncertainty exists with respect to where the axis of
heaviest rain sets up, so stay tuned to the latest forecasts and
updates each day.

In addition, there is a chance of thunderstorms on Wednesday
through Friday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not expected through tonight.
