Only some minor trend adjustments to near term with temp dewpt sky
cover given recent obs. Expecting quiet overnight with some

trough to the west. Previous discussion follows...

short term tonight through Thursday night ...
models in general agreement with the Thursday night system, however
there are differences in the timing with the GFS begin the faster of
the models. Have gone with a compromise on timing with a slightly
heavier lean on the gfs. High pressure will continue over the cwa
tonight and then shift eastward as the system over the southern
plains moves toward georgia. A piece of energy currently along
the tx la coast moves rapidly northeast and across northwest ga
late tonight. Models are trying to squeeze out some precip.
Atmosphere still quite dry but there could be a sprinkle or light
shower but have added a 20 pop across northwest ga late tonight.
The GFS nam both bring a stronger vort lobe into eastern al western
ga by 00z Friday and several of the hi-res models have picked up on
this bringing scattered showers into the west parts of the cwa
Thursday afternoon. This energy spreads across the CWA Thursday
night and have continue with likely pops. There is enough MLCAPE to
keep a slight chance of thunder going for Thursday afternoon and
Long term Friday through Wednesday
To begin the extended period, an upper level trough and an
associated surface front will be passing eastward through the
southeastern conus. Scattered to numerous showers will be ongoing
ahead of the frontal boundary on Friday morning. Instability
associated with this system is marginal but is still sufficient to
warrant a mention for a slight chance of thunderstorms on Friday.
Model guidance remains somewhat inconsistent with respect to when
the precipitation exits the forecast area on Friday. The latest gfs
solution moves the bulk of the precipitation out by Friday
afternoon, with the exception of some wrap-around across far north
georgia. The latest ECMWF and NAM are still running a little slower,
but nonetheless move showers and thunderstorms out of the area by
High pressure will then build into the area on Saturday behind the
front, leading to clearing skies and drier conditions during the day
Saturday. These dry conditions will be fairly short-lived as weak
cold front moves across the area on Sunday. The majority of the
moisture associated with this system is expected to remain well to
the north of the area, but there will nonetheless be some increased
cloud coverage and a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms
developing along the front. The highest rain chances will are only
expected to be slight pops focused across north georgia late
Saturday night into Sunday.
Long-range models remain inconsistent towards the beginning of next
week. However, an early look indicates that the bermuda high over
the western atlantic could allow for persistent southerly flow to
set up over the area, bringing in warmer than average temperatures
and higher humidity values.
vfr conditions and cirrus through much of Thursday, then gradual
decreasing of CIGS ahead of next frontal system. Chance for -shra
and MVFR CIGS increasing from 23-05z Thursday evening and becoming
likely after about 05z Friday. Chance for TS too low to include in
fcst but cannot be ruled out. Winds stay SW thru period -
initially 5-11 kts decreasing light to calm overnight then back
near 10-11 kts with low end gusts for Thursday.

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.
