a weak short wave rotating around the upper low to the north was
bringing showers and isolated thunderstorms to north ga this
afternoon. This area of precip will shift southward toward atl ahn
by 00z, however the showers will dissipate by late this evening
except for the extreme north. Scattered tstorms across central
georgia will shift southward as well, dissipating toward sunset.
Models in good agreement in bringing the upper low and associated
cold pool aloft over georgia by Monday. This will bring an extensive
cloud shield to the CWA Monday and Monday night. This will also
destabilize the atmosphere bringing numerous showers and isolated
thunderstorms to the forecast area. The thunderstorms will likely be
confined to the afternoon and evening hours. Due to the cloud
shield, MAX temps on Monday will be a few degrees below normal.

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.
