Short term today through Friday
A cold front was entering northwest ga this morning. There were a
few showers associated with the front... But they had dissipated
during the last couple of hours. With such shallow moisture it
doesn't look like much support for rain... So no pops have been
included for today. A strong trough deepening along the mid
atlantic states should help push the front into central ga
during the day today. The upper ridge gradually builds back over our
area on Saturday. Overnight low temperatures still look like mid 30s
to mid 40s area wide... With freezing temperatures mainly confined to
the far northeast. The freeze watch for tonight will be changed to a
freeze warning.

Long term Friday night through Wednesday
High pressure will continue to dominate the sensible weather to
start the long term. The high will shift east, becoming anchored
across the mid-atlantic region. The high will nose down into
north ga Saturday into early Sunday ahead of the next storm
system. Models are really trying to come into better agreement and
they do look to converge a bit more than the previous run. Both
the GFS and ecm bring in ample rain across the region to start
the first half of next week. The timing is still up in the air
with the GFS solution being more progressive, bringing in
widespread rain across most of ga by Sunday afternoon. Meanwhile
the ecm really doesn't bring in rain until Sunday night. Either
way, both system are similar in that they are closed lows as they
work east into the SE states. With strong isentropic lift and
overrunning precipitation with the surface high still nosing down
into the region Sunday into Monday, this will make for a very wet
and dreary day on Monday across much of north and central ga. The
wedge will be reinforced by the precipitation helping to keep
temperature quite cool, especially for those in north ga. The
system begins to lose its structure aloft becoming ingested into
the next digging trough. This will result in conditions improving
late Tuesday into Wednesday.

Temperatures will be slightly below normal through the long term,
with the coolest day being Monday.

Fire weather
Fuel moisture remains from 6 to 8 percent over the forecast
area. Wetting rain with the cold front today looks slim to none.

Winds will again become gusty after sunrise. So another fire danger
statement looks reasonable.

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.
