.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT...

ISOLATED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON AND
EVENING ACROSS NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA.

DANGEROUS HEAT INDEX VALUES EXPECTED ACROSS PORTIONS OF CENTRAL
GEORGIA THIS AFTERNOON INTO THE EARLY EVENING.

WEATHER HAZARDS EXPECTED...

THE MAIN THREAT FROM ANY THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE STRONG WINDS...FREQUENT
LIGHTNING AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN.

DANGEROUS HEAT INDICES ACROSS PORTIONS OF CENTRAL GEORGIA WILL CREATE
THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAT EXHAUSTION OR HEAT STROKE.

DISCUSSION...

HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE REGION IN THE MID AND UPPER LEVELS OF
THE ATMOSPHERE BRINGING RISING TEMPERATURES AND DECREASING CHANCES
FOR THUNDERSTORMS. HOWEVER...INSTABILITY WILL BE SUFFICIENT ACROSS
THE AREA FOR ISOLATED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON AND
EVENING. A FEW STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS ARE POSSIBLE WITH DAMAGING
WINDS. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL WEAKEN WITH THE LOSS OF DAYTIME
HEATING TONIGHT.

IN THE AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS. ADDITIONALLY...INCREASING HEAT CAN BE
EXPECTED FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY AND RESIDENTS...ESPECIALLY ACROSS
CENTRAL GEORGIA...NEED TO BE AWARE THAT A HEAT ADVISORY MAY BE
NECESSARY.

WEATHER HAZARDS EXPECTED...

THE MAIN THREAT FROM ANY THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN...
OCCASIONAL TO FREQUENT LIGHTNING AND GUSTY WINDS.

INCREASING TEMPERATURES WILL PRODUCE HEAT INDEX VALUES APPROACHING
DANGEROUS LEVELS FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.

DISCUSSION...

ALTHOUGH UPPER-LEVEL RIDGING WILL INHIBIT THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT
SOMEWHAT BY THURSDAY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK...ISOLATED TO SCATTERED
THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE EACH DAY...MAINLY IN THE AFTERNOON AND
EVENING. INSTABILITY IS NOT EXPECTED TO BE SUFFICIENT FOR WIDESPREAD
SEVERE WEATHER AT THIS TIME. THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGING WILL ALSO ALLOW
TEMPERATURES AND HEAT INDEX VALUES TO CLIMB THROUGH THE END OF THIS
WEEK INTO THE WEEKEND.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO REPORT STRONG TO SEVERE WEATHER VIA THE
WEB AT WEATHER.GOV/ATLANTA.
