Short term tonight through Friday night
Models have come more in agreement with the weakening short wave
that will move over the CWA tonight. Hi-res models are struggling
with the timing of the area of rain. It does appear to be slowing
down a little bit. We have progged the onset of the rain into the
cwa late this afternoon and across CWA as do the GFS nam. Both
models have the precip cleared out of the CWA between 12z and 20z
Friday. Instability lacking and but there is enough CAPE to keep a
slight chance of tsra going tonight.
Both the GFS and NAM kick up the winds Friday morning and keep them
strong into the afternoon. High pressure builds in rapidly Friday
along with strong CAA aloft. This will be enough to increase winds
into advisory criteria for most of the cwa. Have therefore issues a
wind advisory for late Friday morning and through the afternoon
Long term Saturday through Thursday
Extended forecast period sees the region transitioning into a
somewhat "summer-like" pattern. Weak wave zipping through the nearly
zonal flow Saturday-Sunday drags a weak cold front into north
georgia, but it quickly stalls and dissipates. Models show little
moisture available with this feature and only weak forcing. Pops
remain low and confined to mainly the north. By the beginning of the
work-week, upper flow starts the transition from zonal to weak upper
ridging across the southeast as a large surface ridge builds over the
western atlantic. This should keep us warm and dry through the
beginning of the week with isolated to scattered, mainly diurnal,
convection making an appearance by mid-week as the state is firmly
in the grip of the moist, southerly return-flow on the western edge
of the western atlantic surface ridge. Best chances will be across
the north and west where the upper ridge influence is the weakest.
area of rain and isolated tsra will move across the forecast area
late this afternoon and tonight. Have kept vcts for csg mcn for
tonight. Rain will exit rapidly from the west Friday morning. Cigs
will become MVFR with the onset of the rain with isolated areas
of ifr cigs. CIGS will improve rapidly Friday morning toVFR.
Winds will be southerly this afternoon, southwest tonight,
becoming northwest 15 to 25 mph and gusty by mid Friday morning.

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.
