251 pm edt Tue mar 19 2019
Short term tonight through Wednesday night
Freeze warning for later tonight for the NE mountain counties.
It is borderline for much of gilmer, lumpkin and white counties
but at least close for portions of those counties.
Otherwise a quiet forecast continues through Wednesday with a dry
airmass in place. An upper level disturbance short wave moves to the
area Wednesday night with mainly just small chances for light showers
for portions of N ga. There is no instability associated with the
disturbance so pops are low.
Forecast low temperatures are running near to as much as 9 degrees
below normal across the area tonight and within about 5 degrees of
normal Wednesday night. Forecast high temperatures are running about
3-8 degrees below normal for Wednesday.
Overall confidence is medium to high.
Long term Thursday through Tuesday
Minor changes made to the extended forecast. Dry weather expected
through much of the period until late Wednesday Thursday as a low
pressure system moves across the great lakes region dragging a
front towards the area. Since moisture is pretty limited, capped
the pops at just slight chance in that time frame. Forecast
returns to dry weather until late Sunday ahead of the next system
forecast to impact the area. Temperatures through the end of the
week are just a few degrees around seasonal norms with warming
expected through the weekend.
Humidity recovery will be a little better tonight running in the
60 to 85 percent range for much of the area. Another fairly dry
day for Wednesday with min rh's running 20 to 35 percent across|
the area with overall light winds around 3-8 mph or less. Min rh's
will continue to rise on Thursday running 30 to 60 percent across
the area and highest in the mountains with most winds running
west to northwest 7-12 mph with some gusts.
vfr conditions continuing. Surface winds ene around 10 kts this
afternoon with some gusts, diminishing tonight, then ene 10 kts
or less for Wednesday.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
