Short term today through Wednesday
High pressure at the surface and aloft will remain in place across
the state through the short term. Meanwhile, hurricane maria will
continue to slowly move northward off the north carolina coast and
will not bring any sensible weather impacts to georgia. With high
pressure in place and no incoming frontal systems or disturbances,
significantly warmer than average temperatures can be expected with
no chance for rain today or Wednesday.

High temperatures today will generally be in the upper 80s to near
90 areawide, with the exception of the expected cooler higher
elevations in the north georgia mountains. These temperatures are
about 5-9 degrees above average. Wednesday's highs look even warmer,
running closer to 10 degrees above average. Despite these
unseasonably hot temperatures, forecast highs are generally at least
a couple of degrees below the records for the dates.

Long term Wednesday night through Monday
Medium-range models are showing some change in trends beginning late
in the period, however overall impacts on the forecast for the region
are not altogether too different from earlier trends. Models are
still showing the weak upper ridge over the region breaking down as
we head into the weekend as a trough sweeps into the great lakes,
ohio valley and northeast. Lower levels remain dominated by stable,
somewhat dry north-northeast flow around the periphery of maria.

Looks like this dry, stable airmass will negate any significant
chances for precipitation associated with the upper trough through
the weekend as the dynamics remain well north of the area. Weak wave
over the northeast gulf of mexico and north florida will bring a
slight chance for precipitation to our southern and eastern counties,
but trends have been for this feature to remain weak and a bit too
far away for bigger impacts. Models now building a moderately strong
upper ridge back over the region by early next week, but strong
surface ridge wedged down the east coast into the state should keep
temperatures much more seasonal.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
