Short term tonight through Tuesday night
A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for portions of north
and central georgia until 9 pm edt...
as expected, with ample instability in place, thunderstorms are
quickly developing, primarily in association with an impulse moving
from eastern alabama into western georgia. Thunderstorm coverage
will continue to increase, especially ahead of this disturbance as
it traverses the CWA through this evening. SBCAPE values have
already reached in excess of 2000-2500 j kg which will contribute to
thunderstorm intensification and the increasing possibility of some
severe thunderstorms. Damaging wind gusts will be the primary threat
in the strongest storms with steep low level lapse rates and
plentiful moisture. While some hail is possible, less impressive mid-
level lapse rates will tend to reduce the large hail threat a bit.
Coverage of showers and thunderstorms will gradually diminish
overnight after sunset as daytime heating is lost and the
aforementioned impulse moves eastward.
The cold stationary front currently residing to our northwest will
continue to slowly sag into to our area on Tuesday. The proximity of
this boundary as well as continuing southwest flow aloft will
contribute to additional scattered showers and thunderstorms on
Tuesday afternoon. Deep layer shear will not be a factor tomorrow as
it is today, so while showers and thunderstorms can again be
expected on Tuesday, threat for strong severe thunderstorms will be
Long term Wednesday through Monday
Models are coming into better agreement for the late week system.
Confidence is increasing on showers tstorms and have therefore
increased probabilities. No other major changes planned. Previous
long term discussion follows...
previous long term Tuesday night through Sunday ...
the long term remains unsettled with basically a west or
southwest flow aloft across the southern states... And low pressure
continuing across the great lakes. A moist air mass is expected
to persist and a series of short waves will cross the area through
the period. Breaks in the precipitation will be hard to time. So
the overall pattern remains similar with chance or slight chance
pops each period. Gfs ECMWF hint at a surface front pushing into
ga Wednesday night into Thursday with somewhat drier air but not
confident enough on this to make any big pop changes.
18z update... Scattered thunderstorms will be in proximity to taf
sites through this evening with locally gusty winds and MVFR
ceilings ifr vsbys in and near thunderstorms. Outside of
thunderstorms primarilyVFR conditions can be anticipated this
evening. MVFR ceilings are possible by Tuesday morning. Scattered
showers and thunderstorms are again expected by Tuesday afternoon.
Winds will be westerly through the period.
Confidence... Medium confidence on ceilings Tuesday morning.
High confidence other 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.
