...SEVERE WEATHER OUTLOOK...

A WEAK WARM FRONT LIFTING NORTH ACROSS NORTH CAROLINA THIS
AFTERNOON WILL ALLOW UNSEASONABLY WARM AND HUMID AIR TO MOVE IN
FROM THE SOUTH. MEANWHILE...AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT AND STRONG
UPPER AIR DISTURBANCE SHOULD MAINTAIN A LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS
EXPECTED TO MOVE ACROSS THE EASTERN HALF OF GEORGIA AND INTO
WESTERN SOUTH CAROLINA DURING THE EARLY PART OF THE
AFTERNOON.

THE ATMOSPHERE SHOULD BECOME MARGINALLY UNSTABLE ACROSS THE
WESTERN CAROLINAS AND NORTHEAST GEORGIA...OUTSIDE OF THE MOUNTAINS...
DURING THE AFTERNOON. LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR WILL BE SUFFICIENT TO
SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FEW SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS...MAINLY ACROSS
THE AREA TO THE SOUTH OF A LINE FROM CLAYTON GEORGIA...TO
GREENVILLE...AND MONROE NORTH CAROLINA. THE SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO PUSH EAST ACROSS NORTHEAST GEORGIA AND
UPSTATE SOUTH CAROLINA THROUGH THE MIDDLE PART OF THE AFTERNOON...AND
THEN THE CHARLOTTE METRO AREA DURING THE MID TO LATE AFTERNOON.
STRONG AND DAMAGING WIND GUSTS ARE THE PRIMARY THREAT...BUT A BRIEF
ISOLATED TORNADO CANNOT BE RULED OUT...ESPECIALLY FROM TOCCOA
TO ANDERSON...LAURENS...AND ROCK HILL.

THE POTENTIAL FOR THUNDERSTORMS WILL GO DOWN BY THE EARLY EVENING AS
THE COLD FRONT SWEEPS IN FROM THE WEST.

STAY TUNED TO THE MEDIA OR NOAA WEATHER RADIO ALL HAZARDS FOR THE
LATEST INFORMATION REGARDING THIS DEVELOPING SEVERE WEATHER THREAT.
