This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for northeast Georgia, piedmont
North Carolina, western North Carolina, and Upstate South Carolina.

.DAY ONE...Today and tonight.

Scattered to numerous afternoon and evening thunderstorms will
develop today. Any of these thunderstorms will have the potential to
produce cloud-to-ground lightning strikes, locally heavy rainfall,
and gusty winds. A few thunderstorms could become severe, with
damaging wind gusts or quarter size hail, especially along or near
the Interstate 40 corridor. Localized flooding will be possible in
any areas affected by multiple thunderstorms. Isolated to scattered
thunderstorms may continue into the overnight hours.

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

Abundant moisture will set up over the region on Friday ahead of a
cold front approaching from the north. Instability in the warm and
moist air ahead of the front may contribute to locally excessive
rainfall, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours on Friday.
Flooding of low-lying and poor drainage areas will be possible at any
locations repeatedly affected by showers and thunderstorms. Small
streams could approach bankfull where heavy rain falls.

These conditions will linger into Saturday as the front slowly moves
south across the area.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotters are requested to forward any reports of large hail,
damaging winds, tornadoes, or flash flooding to our office.
