DISCUSSION
 
 
THINGS STARTING OF THIS MORNING WARM AND VERY HUMID. TEMPS ACROSS  
THE AREA ARE ALREADY IN THE LOWER TO MIDDLE 70S. TEMPS BY 1PM WILL  
BE IN THE UPPER 80S IN TROUP CO. WITH SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORM  
ALSO PUSHING NORTHWARD THROUGH THE AREA. THE FIRST OUTER RAIN BAND  
FROM TROPICAL STORM BARRY IS CURRENTLY RIGHT ALONG THE GA/FL  
BORDER AND IS MOVING NORTHWARD. THIS OUTER BAND WILL PLAY A  
STRONG ROLE IN SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT THIS AFTERNOON  
ACROSS CENTRAL GA. THIS BAND WILL LIFT NORTHWARD THROUGH THE DAY  
AND STRENGTHEN IN INTENSITY AS IT APPROACHES THE I20 CORRIDOR AND  
METRO AREA OF ATL. HEAVY RAIN WILL BE THE PRIMARY CONCERN GIVEN  
THE TROPICAL NATURE OF THE AIRMASS. INSTABILITY OVER WEST CENTRAL  
GA WILL BE LESS THAN RECENT DAYS BUT STILL STRONG ENOUGH TO HELP  
GENERATE STRONG STORMS THIS AFTERNOON/EVENING.
