upper low exits the area later today, with cloud cover exiting with
it. As frontal boundary is dragged out of north and central georgia,
high pressure will once again build into the state. Gusty northwest
winds will usher dry air into the state, but should remain wind
advisory criteria. Clear and sunny skies are expected into the
Winds should prohibit and frost development overnight, but with
temperatures dropping into the 30s overnight, could not rule out
patchy frost developing, especially in sheltered areas in north
georgia. Will not be issuing a frost advisory due to the isolated
Also will not be issuing a freeze warning for morning lows where
temps will be 32 degrees or less. At this time, model guidance is
consistently showing that temperatures in the northeast mountains
should largely be above freezing, with very isolated spots of 32
degrees or less. The risk is not widespread enough to issue a freeze
warning at this time.
On the fire weather side of things, the drier air mass expected
Friday will allow minimum rhs to be lower than today. At this time,
there is increasing confidence that portions of eastern georgia,
generally east of i-85 on the north side, and i-75 on the south
side, will need a fire danger statement for Friday. For now, will
allow overnight shift to tailor the area due to uncertainties in how
fast things will dry overnight, and whether cloud cover will exit
quickly enough over eastern georgia.
long term Saturday through Thursday ...
a dry and pleasant weekend is on tap at the beginning of the long-
term forecast period as upper ridging will build into the region on
Saturday. Temperatures will respond accordingly with highs warming
well into the 60s and 70s on Saturday into Sunday under mostly sunny
Clouds will begin to increase from the northwest by late Sunday as
the upper ridge flattens as the next system approaches. The
positively tilted trough will enter the region on Monday bringing
much higher rain chances from Monday into Monday night. Forecast
instability does increase Monday afternoon with SBCAPE values around
500 j kg certainly sufficient for maintaining thunder chances.
Strong severe potential appears relatively unimpressive with current
forecast shear instability, but trends will be monitored. The trough
axis and surface front push through the area on Monday, but a
secondary weak upper disturbance on Tuesday will maintain the chance
for showers in the area.
Dry weather will return on Wednesday into late week as upper ridging
returns and surface high pressure builds southward east of the
appalachians. This will bring a quick rebound in temperatures with
50s and 60s Tuesday and Wednesday quickly warming back towards the
70s by Thursday and Friday.

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.
