AUGUSTA, Ga. (WFXG) - Marginal risk of severe thunderstorms and locally heavy rainfall, mainly eastern part of the forecast area. A stalled boundary near the southern and eastern forecast area will provide continued shower and thunderstorm chances through Friday, with greatest coverage in south and east sections. Drier air builds into the forecast area from the west on Friday as the upper trough axis dampens with rainfall totals dropping to around 1.5 inches across the western counties while remaining at or above 2 inches over the Coastal Plain.

The stalled frontal boundary over the region will be relatively diffuse with little convergence but forecast instability is moderate and expect isolated diurnal convection. Further east closer to the deeper moisture and with possible sea breeze pushing inland think higher rain chances are justified.
