short term today through Sunday ...
high pressure over the area will keep mostly clear to partly cloudy
skies with high temps in the 60s across the area in the short term.
Will see mainly clear skies today as the ridge is at its strongest
right now but this ridge does begin to breakdown tonight. This will
allow increased moisture return from the atlantic as a weak wave
begins to develop along the ga sc coast Sunday afternoon. The models
are not showing much development with this wave and it eventually
gets caught in the upper level zonal flow Sunday night Monday
morning and gets pushes eastward out to sea. Moisture from this wave
will bring increased clouds to the state Sunday before it moves out.
Low temps tonight expected in the 30s and 40s but with the increased
cloud cover Sunday low temps Sunday night should be mainly in the
long term Sunday night through Friday ...
at the beginning of the long term... A frontal boundary will be
approaching northwest ga. The front will cross the state through
Tuesday. Over the past few days... Models have been showing
diminishing moisture as the front pushed across ga. This run of
the models showing enough moisture to have a mention of a slight
chance of showers far north on Monday. GFS hints that the showers
may linger into Monday night... But not including pops at this
time. Looks dry again until Friday. By that time... A southern
stream short wave moving along the gulf coast should move to the
atlantic coast. GFS and ECMWF have different versions of the
location of the low... But the overall effect for our area would be|
easterly flow and increasing atlantic moisture. So... Have
introduced pops across much of the area on Friday.
vfr conditions expected to continue into tonight with only passing
high clouds. Patchy late night fog possible and most likely near
river valleys. Surface winds ranging from nnw to E less than
10 kts this afternoon then calm or light and variable overnight
Atl confidence... 18z update...
medium confidence for timing of wind shift.
High confidence for all other elements.

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.
