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

.DAY ONE…This Afternoon and Tonight.

Scattered thunderstorms will continue to develop late this afternoon
and this evening across the region. The thunderstorms may become
numerous at times across parts of the northern mountains, northern
foothills, and northwest piedmont of North Carolina. The primary
threat will be cloud-to-ground lightning and brief heavy downpours.
There is also the potential for flash flooding because of the
expected slow movement of the storms, particularly in locations that
have had heavy rain earlier in the week. An isolated severe
thunderstorm cannot be ruled out, with damaging wind gusts the main
concern. The thunderstorms should diminish in coverage and intensity
during the late evening hours.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Sunday through Friday.

..Sunday…No hazardous weather is expected at this time.
..Monday…Severe weather with flash flooding possible. A cold front
will move into the region from the northwest on Monday and slowly
cross the region into Monday night. Strong to severe thunderstorms
with quarter-size hail and brief, damaging winds will be possible
during the afternoon and evening hours. Very heavy rainfall will be
possible with the thunderstorms as well, and isolated flash flooding
may develop in areas repeatedly affected by thunderstorms.
..Tuesday…No hazardous weather is expected at this time.
..Wednesday…No hazardous weather is expected at this time.
..Thursday…No hazardous weather is expected at this time.
..Friday…No hazardous weather is expected at this time.
