THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF NORTH AND CENTRAL
GEORGIA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT...

EASTERLY WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO BRING INCREASING MOISTURE TO THE
AREA TODAY AND TONIGHT...ALLOWING FOR A RETURN OF ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY. AREAS ALONG AND SOUTH OF A COLUMBUS TO MACON
LINE WILL SEE THE BEST CHANCES FOR THUNDERSTORMS. A FEW STRONG
STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON WITH STRONG...GUSTY WINDS.
HOWEVER...OCCASIONAL TO FREQUENT CLOUD-TO-GROUND LIGHTNING WILL BE
THE MAIN THREAT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY...

A SERIES OF UPPER DISTURBANCES AND INCREASING ATLANTIC MOISTURE WILL
BRING NUMEROUS AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS BACK TO THE AREA
FOR MUCH OF THE WEEKEND. NEXT WEEK REMAINS UNCERTAIN DUE TO THE
HOSTILE CONDITIONS CURRENTLY BEING EXPERIENCED BY TROPICAL STORM
ERIKA WHICH IT WILL NEED TO OVERCOME TO SURVIVE THE NEXT SEVERAL
DAYS. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST TRACK BRINGS A WEAKENED SYSTEM TO THE
FLORIDA AND GEORGIA STATE LINE BY EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING. THIS
WOULD RESULT IN A HEAVY RAIN SCENARIO BY MID WEEK FOR MUCH OF THE
SOUTHERN TIER OF OUR AREA WITH FLOODING THE MAIN CONCERN. PLEASE
