Synopsis
Low pressure is currently moving through the mid-atlantic
states as a cold front dies over the region. Warmer and drier
weather will return to the area today through the weekend.

Another low pressure system will bring chances of rain back to
the area early next week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Dry and breezy conditions are expected across the forecast area
today in the wake of the departing upper trough. 500mb flow
will be from the northwest with downsloping flow will keep the
atmosphere quite dry as precipitable water values will remain at
or below 0.25 inches. It will be warmer than yesterday with
highs in the mid 60s to low 70s.

Winds will be from the west during the day and pick up through
the afternoon with deep mixing expected and possible gusts to 25
mph.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Sunday night
As the upper trough exits the northeastern states, a persistent
northwest flow will continue over the region through Saturday.

A weak backdoor cool front sinking south through the area
tonight will become diffuse on Saturday. The airmass will remain
quite dry with precipitable water values 0.30 inches or less.

Upper level ridging will move over the forecast area Saturday
night and Sunday, then flatten as an upper low over the upper
midwest opens up and phases with northern stream energy diving
down across the great lakes region. Mostly clear skies will
continue tonight through Saturday night with clouds beginning to
increase Sunday. Afternoon temperatures will be at or above
normal with lows in the mid upper 30s tonight and Saturday
night. Clouds will keep temperatures around 50 degrees Sunday
night.

Long term Monday through Thursday
The chance for rain will return early next week.

The positively tilted upper trough will cross the forecast area
Monday into Tuesday bringing the chance for rain. Moisture will
increase over the area with precipitable water values rising to
around 1 inch or slightly higher Monday into Monday night.

Forecast rainfall amounts generally a quarter to half inch are
expected. Models indicate weak instability, so will continue
the mention of thunder Monday afternoon and evening.

Surface high pressure and upper level ridging will move over the
region Wednesday and Thursday in the wake of the departing
upper trough providing a return to dry weather. Temperatures
will be near to above normal Monday then be below normal Tuesday
and Wednesday gradually warming to near normal again by
Thursday.

Aviation 10z Friday through Tuesday
Vfr conditions expected next 24 hours.

Surface and upper level trough will continue moving east of the
area. Clear skies are expected through the TAF period. Northwest
winds of 5 to 8 kts this morning will increase to west 10 to 15
knots with gusts to 25 knots this afternoon with a relatively
tight surface pressure gradient across the area.

Extended aviation outlook... Restrictions possible late Sunday
night through Monday as a low pressure system moves into the
region.

Fire weather
Downslope flow bringing dry air and gusty winds will increase
fire danger across the area this afternoon. Have issued a fire
danger statement for our ga counties given minimum rh around 20
percent and wind gusts around 25 mph. Minimum rh will be around
20 percent Saturday, though winds will be lighter.

Cae watches warnings advisories
Ga... None.

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.
