Georgia beginning at 8 PM.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday...

The Wind Advisory continues through Noon on Monday.

A line of showers and thunderstorms will continue to move through

Short Term Forecast

Area Forecast Discussion...Updated
 National Weather Service Peachtree City GA
 740 PM EDT Wed Apr 5 2017

.SHORT TERM /Tonight through Thursday Night/...

A very active weather day continues this afternoon with a large area
 of thunderstorms across central Georgia and additional isolated
 thunderstorm activity farther north in northwest Georgia.

Expect the risk for severe thunderstorms to continue into the
 evening hours both in association with the cluster of thunderstorms
 in southern sections of the area as well as with additional
 development in west and northwest Georgia ahead of the cold front.
 With abundant instability to our west across Alabama and extending
 into northwest Georgia, expect this area to become the focus for
 strong to severe convection later this evening. As favorable shear
 is also in place, tornadoes would be possible with any discreet
 storms that develop and push into Georgia from the west later this
 evening. There is a question how far east any severe thunderstorms
 that develop ahead of the front will be able to reach given a tongue
 of lower instability from the Atlanta metro area and northeastward;
 however, if this area is able to destabilize then the risk would
 exist farther east. At this time, an additional Tornado Watch has
 been issued for far northwest Georgia to cover the aforementioned
 potential increasing from the west. If conditions warrant, this
 watch could be extended eastward later this evening.

A Flash Flood Watch also continues for much of north and portions of
 central Georgia into tonight given the copious amounts of rainfall
 experienced in many locations and associated flash flooding issues.
 Many locations in a band running from Carroll County eastward across
 the Atlanta metro and into the Athens area have already experienced
 3+ inches of rainfall today with additional rainfall possible this
 evening.

There is light at the end of the proverbial tunnel, however, as the
 cold front will begin to sweep through the area from the west
 tonight. The severe threat will end as this occurs. Gusty west to
 northwest winds will build in behind the front, especially during
 the day Thursday when sustained winds over 20 mph and gusts over 30-
 35 mph will be plentiful. These winds in association with mostly
 cloudy conditions and even a few showers across north Georgia will
 provide for a much cooler day than today. Most areas across north
 Georgia will remain in the 50s for highs with central Georgia only
 mustering the 60s. Widespread low temperatures in the 40s can be
 expected by Friday morning with some frosty 30s possible in the
 north Georgia mountains.
