Short term today through Tuesday
Abundant moisture will continue over the forecast area and deep
sw flow will bring another surge today. This combined with
daytime instability will allow for scattered to numerous showers
and thunderstorms to develop favoring the western half of the
forecast area slightly.
While showers and storms will diminish during the evening, shower
and minimal thunderstorm chances will continue overnight favoring
north and portions of W ga as an upper trough approaches.
Along with the approach of an upper trough, a cold front is
forecast to approach far NW ga late on Tuesday. This combined with
deep moisture will allow for scattered to numerous showers and
thunderstorms. With the trough moving over the forecast area in the
afternoon and the deepest moisture beginning to exit, shower and
thunderstorm chances look to diminish for at least portions of nw
ga in the later afternoon. With the upper trough and cold front
approaching on Tuesday, a few thunderstorms could be severe.
Forecast high temperatures are running 2-4 degrees below normal today
and Tuesday. Forecast low temperatures are running near to slightly
above normal tonight.
Overall confidence is medium.
Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
The long term begins with an exiting cold front leaving some low end
pops across parts of central ga Tuesday night. The upper trough
will slowly lift northeast with a dry northwest flow over the cwa
Wednesday and Thursday keeping the CWA pretty dry and stable.
Another weak short wave will move into the ohio and tennessee
valleys this weekend and this will bring increasing chances of|
showers tstorms to the CWA Friday through Sunday.

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.
