NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PEACHTREE CITY GA
830 PM EDT FRI APR 21 2006

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT
ISOLATED SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED THIS EVENING AND TONIGHT.

.SYNOPSIS...
AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH AND ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT WILL MOVE FROM THE
LOWER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY INTO THE SOUTHEAST U.S. EARLY SATURDAY.

.PRIMARY HAZARDS...
THE PRIMARY HAZARD FROM THUNDERSTORMS THIS EVENING WILL BE LARGE
HAIL...POSSIBLY AS LARGE AS GOLF BALLS IN A FEW THUNDERSTORMS. AS
THE NIGHT PROGRESSES...THE THREAT WILL SHIFT MORE TOWARD DAMAGING
WIND. FREQUENT DANGEROUS CLOUD-TO-GROUND LIGHTNING AND HEAVY RAIN
WILL ALSO POSE A HAZARD WITH MANY OF THE THUNDERSTORMS THAT MOVE
ACROSS THE AREA THIS EVENING AND TONIGHT. THROUGH MIDNIGHT...THE
MOST SIGNIFICANT THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE WEST OF A
LINE FROM BLUE RIDGE...TO ATLANTA...TO LA GRANGE. AFTER
MIDNIGHT...THE THREAT OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL SHIFT FURTHER
EAST...MAINLY EAST OF A BLUE RIDGE...TO ATLANTA...TO LA GRANGE LINE.

.DISCUSSION...
A LARGE COMPLEX OF THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS ALABAMA CONTINUED TO SPREAD
EASTWARD FRIDAY EVENING...THE LEADING EDGE OF WHICH WAS REACHING
NORTHWEST GEORGIA AROUND SUNSET. CONDITIONS DO NOT APPEAR TO BE AS
FAVORABLE FOR SEVERE WEATHER AS EARLIER EXPECTED. THE AIR MASS
ACROSS GEORGIA HAS REMAINED SLIGHTLY COOLER THAN EARLIER
EXPECTED...AND AS A RESULT MORE STABLE. LIFTED INDICES IN THE -3
RANGE AROUND SUNSET...WILL RISE TO NEAR ZERO AFTER MIDNIGHT. CAPES
WILL DROP BELOW 500 OVER MOST OF THE AREA AFTER MIDNIGHT.
HOWEVER...A LOW-LEVEL JET OF 30-50 KNOT WINDS IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP
ACROSS WEST CENTRAL GEORGIA AROUND MIDNIGHT. THIS COULD ENHANCE THE
SEVERE WEATHER THREAT IN THE 10 PM TO 2 AM PERIOD ACROSS NORTH
CENTRAL AND WEST CENTRAL GEORGIA. WHILE EARLY IN THE PERIOD THE MAIN
THREAT WILL BE HAIL...AS THE LOW-LEVEL JET DEVELOPS...IT APPEARS THE
MAIN SEVERE WEATHER THREAT WILL BE DAMAGING WINDS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY
THUNDERSTORMS WILL LINGER ACROSS EASTERN SECTIONS OF GEORGIA
SATURDAY MORNING...BUT THE THREAT OF THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD END ACROSS
ALL OF NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA BY NOON. THERE WILL BE A CHANCE OF
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY. CONDITIONS AT THIS
TIME DO NOT APPEAR FAVORABLE FOR THIS ACTIVITY TO BECOME SEVERE.

Me too Maddy...I slept on the couch last night (we have a cedar tree at our bedroom window that would take 3 people holding hands to be able to reach around it) and I have this ...fear...I guess is the word of lightning hitting it. Hubby doesn't worry. He sleeps away. Not I. The only thing kind of comical about the whole deal is, if lightning was to hit the tree, it would probably get the whole house but...well all in the minds of us who have those vivid imaginations I reckon! LOL! The lightning was coming straight down last night. THATS the kind of lightning that scares me.
