Surface wind barbs are plotted in red for the times closest to that of each image. The surface wind over northeastern Georgia backs from southwesterly to southeasterly as the developing convection approaches. With stronger southwesterly mid-tropospheric winds advancing over the region, a wind profile with low-level veering and increasing speed with height was created.
