short term tonight through Friday ...

complex system moving across the CWA with rotating cells
continuing across central ga. Will continue the tornado watch for
mainly the eastern half of the CWA along and ahead of the main
area of convection. Drier air is already moving into western ga
and this will continue to be the trend. Will end the pops from the
west through this evening, however the cold core h5 low will move
over the CWA and this will keep northern ga unstable enough for
scattered showers through the night. The h5 low move rapidly into
the carolinas however with daytime heating and the proximity to
the cold core, there will continue to be scattered showers tstorms
over northeast ga through much of Thursday. Skies become mostly
clear Thursday night and Friday. Winds will be gusty Thursday but
should diminish Thursday night and Friday.

long term Friday night through Wednesday ...

no major changes for the long term. Previous long term discussion
follows...

previous discussion...

shortwave ridge of high pressure will maintain dry and stable
conditions through Saturday, with temperatures quickly bouncing
back during the day sat.

Moisture will gradually increase this weekend as W swerly flow
becomes more pronounced across the region ahead of large upr vortex
dropping south from central canada over the northern plains upper
midwest. By Sunday and into the first part of next week, several
shortwaves will interact with sufficient moisture and low lvl
convergence along a west-east oriented frontal boundary to
support an increasing chance of shower and a few thunderstorms.

This "system" is not looking nearly as impressive as what we've
been dealing with over the past few days but it will bring the
area more rain, on top of what we've had already. Drier air moves
in from the northwest late Monday into Tuesday with a nearly
stationary frontal boundary across north florida south georgia -
where lingering chances for showers storms will exist Tuesday.

Temperatures into early next week should remain around normal for
late may -- lower to mid 80s for highs and mid 60s for lows.

hydrology...

storms with brief heavy rain continue across parts of eastern ga
but these are moving quickly and the threat of flash flooding has
ended. Will therefore cancel the flash flood watch.

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.
