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

.DAY ONE…Tonight.

Numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected to impact the area
through tonight. Slow-moving and training storms may produce
torrential downpours over a short period of time, resulting in
localized flash flooding. In addition to the heavy rain potential,
cloud-to-ground lightning, gusty winds, and small hail will also be
possible. Some storms could knock down a few trees that have root
systems weakened from excessive rain. While very heavy rainfall is
possible everywhere across the area, the area most susceptible for
flash flooding will be along the southern Blue Ridge escarpment and
from Toccoa, Georgia, to Hendersonville, North Carolina.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Thursday through Tuesday.

..Thursday…Heavy rain possible. Numerous to widespread showers and
thunderstorms are expected to continue through Thursday. At least a
localized flash flood threat is expected, especially in areas that
receive heavy rainfall through tonight.

..Sunday…No hazardous weather is expected at this time.
