short term tonight through Tuesday night ...
much drier and cooler air mass remains has settled over the area as
high pressure dominates. Expect building cirrus overnight tonight
into Tuesday as a series of upper level impulses traverse an
approaching upper level trough. Even with the trough, little
convective development is expected due to the abnormally dry high
pressure at the surface. Have continued with slight chance pops over
the north georgia mountains where orographic influence could supply
enough lift for some showers to develop. Additionally, have
continued slight chance pops over the far SE CWA where a convergence
zone will combine with diurnal heating to produce isolated
convection. Regardless, expect any activity to be sub-severe.
Have opted for a blend of guidance for temperatures through the
short term period.
long term Wednesday through Monday ...
no major changes to the long term. The quick return of tropical
air still looks on target for the latter half of this week.
Previous long term discussion follows...
long term Tuesday night through Sunday ...
a dry air mass is in place at the start of the period with a
surface ridge centered over the appalachians. The ridge gradually
moves east... And by Thursday the return flow is bringing moisture
back into the state. Models continue to hint at a weak short wave
in the northern gulf by the weekend... And also a front approaching
from the oh valley toward the end of the period. In general we|
remain in a tropical air mass from Thursday and beyond and chance
pops for most areas each day look reasonable.

expected. The biggest issue looks to be wind direction. Right now
the winds are out of the NW and they should stay there until
10z-12z Tue when they turn to the ne. The winds will stay NE for
just a few hours then turn back to the NW by 14z-16z. Wind speeds
will stay 10kt or less through the period.

confidence high on all elements.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
