Morning area forecast discussion...
Short term today through Friday
The cold front was just east of athens to macon this morning and
will continue to push eastward. Some light rain is lingering behind
the front into north and west ga... But think we will see drying from
the west around 12z. The colder air is still mostly in al with mid
40s just starting to enter the far northwest. Cooling may not be
quick enough to cause the brief rain snow mix in the far northeast
this morning... But not confident enough to take it out. Not looking
for any accumulation if we do get it. Temperatures will again be
difficult today with a non diurnal trace and temperatures generally
falling during the day. Expecting gusty northwest winds today but
think they will stay below wind advisory criteria. Tonight will be
clear and colder. A weak impulse crossing the tn valley on Friday
may bring only some cloudiness to north ga. Will keep the flash
flood watch until expiration at 12z.
Long term Friday night through Wednesday
A strong surface high pressure system will be settled in over the
region at the start of the long term period, keeping areas of
precipitation at bay towards the north and south through the
weekend. Temps will generally be around normal (albeit slowly
warming each consecutive day) with high temperatures in the 40s and
50s. Afterwards, chances of precip in the region go up as a cold
front is expected by Tuesday morning, with temperatures ranging from
10-15 degrees below normal by next Wednesday, with low temps in the
20s Wednesday morning.
In general, the GFS and euro are in good agreement regarding the
overall pattern, through the long term, with the gfs-fv3 lagging
behind while elongating the cold front. The result is a chance for
precip from ranging from early Tuesday morning through Thursday
morning. Both the GFS and euro agree on the highest chances of
precip coming during the day on Tuesday, with precip falling behind
the cold front. The euro hints at some snow flurries behind the line
of storms where the GFS is much more bullish with light snow
coverage with chances all the way down to central georgia. Both then
clear out with high pressure settling in with a weak shortwave
moving through Wednesday night. The euro keeps this wave dry while
the GFS hints at light snow flurries possible for far north georgia.
The gfs-fv3 on the other hand, elongates the cold front, pushing it
through slowly on Wednesday. It's much drier than the euro and gfs,
but still has a strong signal that we could see so mixed frozen
precip through the area on Wednesday instead, even into central|
georgia. The current forecast blends these 3 scenarios with each
having some consistency to their claims from the previous night.
Guidance has been putting a signal for some winter precip around
this time for the last several days with no clear indication on
which way mother nature will go. Seemed appropriate to include at
least a slight chance of each possibility. Although if you hold my
feet to the fire, i'd lean towards the euro (front Tuesday, little
chance of frozen precip with higher temps and dry the next several
MVFR ceilings lingering with some areas of ifr. Gradual
improvement after 12z with scattering after 18z. Rain ending
across the TAF sites by 12z. Winds will become northwest with some
gusts after 08z and continue into the afternoon.

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.
