THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPING IN THE AFTERNOON AND LASTING INTO THE

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/...  
 
MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY REMAIN A BIT LIMITED TODAY. ISOLATED  
CONVECTION FIRING NOW IS A BIT MORE WIDESPREAD THAN THE PAST COUPLE  
OF DAYS...BUT OVERALL COVERAGE NOT REALLY ANY DENSER THAN EXPECTED.  
NOT MUCH CHANGE TO THE OVERALL UPPER-LEVEL AND SURFACE PATTERNS  
THROUGH TOMORROW NIGHT...HOWEVER AS THE REMAINS OF BONNIE CONTINUE  
TO CREEP AWAY FROM THE FORECAST AREA THE MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW A  
GRADUAL INCREASE IN MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY. THIS SUPPORTS PREVIOUS  
FORECAST TREND OF INCREASED COVERAGE OF...MAINLY DIURNAL...  
CONVECTION WEDNESDAY.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...  
 
EXTENDED FORECAST REMAINS ON TRACK WITH FRONTAL BOUNDARY  
APPROACHING THE STATE LATE IN THE WEEK ON THU WITH A GENERAL  
INCREASE IN CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY EXPECTED. HOWEVER...THE FRONT  
STALLS THROUGH FRIDAY AS UPPER RIDGE BUILDS IN AHEAD OF NEXT  
SHORTWAVE. IT WILL NOT BE UNTIL SUNDAY AFTERNOON THAT THIS FRONT  
ACTUALLY MAKES PROGRESS TOWARD THE FORECAST AREA. TIMING LOOKS ON  
TARGET FOR PORTIONS OF CENTRAL GEORGIA TO SEE MAX HEATING SUNDAY  
AFTERNOON PRIOR TO LINE ARRIVING IN THE AFTERNOON. WILL NEED TO  
MONITOR STRONG TO SEVERE POTENTIAL WITH SUBSEQUENT FORECASTS FOR  
THE LATTER HALF OF THE WEEKEND. NO OTHER CHANGES TO THE EXTENDED
