Short term today through Sunday
Not much change in the over all weather pattern across the
southeastern u.S. Warm moist southerly flow continues across the
area as bermuda like ridge remains centered just off the
carolina georgia coast. The ridge is expected to continue to weaken
as the main frontal system finally moves into the state Sunday
afternoon. The main axis of deepest moisture associated with the
frontal boundary currently extends from the southern plains to the
mid atlantic states. This front is expected to move quickly across
the ms river valley this afternoon and push into NW ga by sunrise
Sunday morning. Have increased pops mainly across the north today
and across the entire state Sunday. Instability indices and daytime
highs do increase enough to support isolated thunderstorms but still
not expecting any severe storms. The southerly flow will also
continue to help keep temps well above seasonal norms with highs
expected again in the 70s and 80s across the area.

01

Long term Sunday night through Friday
A slow moving cold front is forecast to be moving across the
area Sunday night into Monday with a moist SW upper flow
associated. Rain chances will be high across much of the area
before diminishing Monday and ending for most of the area
by Monday night. There will be a period of heavy rain potential
later Sunday night and early Monday and we will continue to
monitor for flooding potential. Instability is limited during this
period so there is only a slight chance for thunderstorms.

There will be a lull in the rain chances Monday night and Tuesday
before the next round.

The GFS and european models are rather consistent with deep
moisture returning with overrunning southerly flow kicking in
Tuesday night and for the most part, continuing Wednesday.

The GFS and the european models differ with the timing of the
next cold front with the GFS much fast bringing the front across
the area on Thursday and the european Thursday night as a well
define surface low develops along the front on the european model.

At this time, instability looks to be limited. Rain chances look
to end quickly late Thursday or Thursday night with a dry Friday
expected.

N and portions of central ga will experience the greatest rainfall
into Monday and N ga will be the target of the greatest rainfall
for the later week event.

Temperatures will continue above normal this long term period.

vfr ceilings across the area but expecting some MVFR ceilings
between 10-14z across the area. Ceiling will lift back up into the
vfr range by 15-16z. Winds will start out of the SE then turn to
the SW around sunrise. Wind speeds will stay 10kt or less with
some gust to 15kt this afternoon. No restrictions to vsbys
expected. There will be some light showers across the area today
but they will be very isolated so decided to leave them out of the

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
