Short term today through Thursday
A strong upper ridge will continue to build over the southeast
through the short term. The air mass will remain dry with an
inversion aloft helping to suppress convection. Some increase in
atlantic moisture is showing up as a lingering mid cloud deck this
morning. Models do point toward an easterly push or weak wedge as a
back door front pushes into northeast ga today. Looks like this
could mostly affect northeast ga in the form of a few showers or
thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Have held on to the slight
chance pops for the far northeast during that time. For Thursday the
remnants of the weak front could be enough to give a slight chance
to the far northeast for the afternoon. Otherwise expect continued
above normal temperatures.

Long term Thursday night through Tuesday
Hot and dry is really all there is to say about the extended
forecast. The strong upper ridge will be in full force at the onset
of the extended period with near-record or record 500mb heights for
the month of may. As such, temperatures will be warming well into
the mid-to-upper 90s Friday and continue to gradually warm into
memorial day weekend. Widespread upper 90s to lower 100s can be
expected into memorial day and beyond as the southeast ridge hangs
firm. All-time record may highs will thus still be in play. The
"good" news is forecast heat indices are running below heat advisory
criteria despite the very warm air temperatures courtesy of
afternoon dewpoints dipping in the upper 50s to near 60. Regardless,
it will still feel quite hot, especially for late may.

While the upper ridge will flatten a bit into early next week, there
is little sign of any significant pattern change. While the GFS does
bring a front into the area late next week, the ECMWF holds the
ridge firm through the coming week. Given the difficulty of breaking
such an entrenched ridge, am inclined to believe the ecmwf.

For reference, the all-time may record highs follow directly below,
and the daily records are in the climate section below.

All-time record highs for may:
atlanta: 97 degrees f in 1914 and 1941
athens: 100 degrees f in 1918 and 1926
columbus: 100 degrees f in 1916 and 1937
macon: 99 degrees f in 1898, 1953, and 1967

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.
