short term tonight through Wednesday night ...

this afternoon is pretty much panning out as forecast with the
highest pops along and south of a columbus to macon line where
precipitable water values have been in excess of 2 inches this
afternoon. Numerous storms have developed in this environment with
isolated strong storms which seem to be over achieving in the warm
mid level environment. There is a sharp cutoff between this
activity and what is going on across atlanta and points northward
which is basically isolated showers at most. Expect this
configuration to remain through the remainder of the evening with
alabama activity looking to remain west of the area and tennessee
valley activity remaining north initially.

Frontal boundary or at least the pre frontal environment will make
its way into NW ga by 06z tonight with enhanced mid level
moisture. However, CAPE values will remain very low and thinking
only isolated to low end chance pops warranted at this time. Will
include tsra as well but shra may end up being the favored wx type

For wed, front will sink south through the area with moisture
ahead of it pooling to result in pws around 2 inches for most
areas. Subtle shortwave energy along with CAPE values increasing
to around 2000 j kg should be all that is required to produce high
end chance to low end likely pops. There will be a zone of slight
cooling aloft allowing for slightly steeper lapse rates and the
potential for some stronger activity during the afternoon hours.

Right now, have the best pops across the northern sections but
could easily see a scenario where highest pops would be carried
south of this point given greater afternoon heating potential.

Will let later shifts monitor for possible displacement of this
highest pops axis southward.

long term Thursday through Tuesday ...

only tweaks to the long term based on the latest guidance.

previous discussion...

the long term beings with the cold front continuing to move out of
the CWA taking most of the moisture with it. There remains
residual moisture across parts of central georgia and have left
chance pops across central georgia through Friday. North georgia
should be dry for the rest of the week. All models begin spreading
moisture back across the CWA this weekend and into early next week
although they differ on the moisture depth. Will bring chance pops
to all of the CWA beginning Saturday and continuing through the
rest of the long term.


00z update...

showers continue to dissipate across the area this evening. Should
have clearing skies through the night tonight. A front will
approach the state overnight and gradually sink south through the
day on Wednesday. This should lead to the development of a cu
field between 030-040 in the morning... Before lifting to between
040-050 through the afternoon. Scattered showers and thunderstorms
will develop by early afternoon... With a prob30 covering this for
most sites. West winds will continue but should become more NW by
Wednesday afternoon at 10kts or less.

Atl confidence... 00z update...

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.
