clouds starting to scatter out across the atlanta metro area, and
should see blue skies across much of forecast area except north
ga. Clouds will fill back in as surface front moves across area
from NW to SE this afternoon and evening. Have only made minor
tweaks to temperatures and pops based upon latest trends. Updated
forecasts issued shortly.

short term today through Wednesday ...

expecting gradual increase in pops today as a slow progression cold
front sags southward into the area. Some isentropic forcing could
allow for some isolated showers ahead of the front anytime this
morning across the northern majority of the area, though the
greatest chance will be afternoon into evening and have included
likely to high end chance pops for north ga trending lower into
central ga. Enough conditional instability progged to include slight
chance thunder for the southern majority of the area, though
thinking the front will mainly bring a light to moderate soaking
rain to the north of 0.25-0.50 inches total qpf.

Wednesday should have some isolated shower potential mainly in the
morning to early afternoon to central portions of the area where the
front lingers, though becomes more moisture starved diffuse by
afternoon so actually went dry by that time.

Temps today with rather strong gradient given aforementioned
boundary. While parts of the north will struggle to make it in the
70s, areas in central georgia may actually flirt with record highs
in the upper 80s to low 90s. Wednesday will have a welcomed more
autumn like airmass about 10 degrees cooler and close to climo.

long term Wednesday night through Monday ...

the start of the long term will be dry.

The next cold front will move across the area mainly on Saturday
with the first rain chances over far north georgia on Friday with
rain chances increasing quickly over far N ga Friday night.

Saturday looks to start out on the wet side but precip should be
diminishing and ending late or the first part of Saturday evening.

Instability is limited with just a slight chance of thunderstorms
over mainly central ga on Saturday. The GFS is wetter with this system
to start than the european with both models moving the front and
moisture through the area rather quickly.

Sunday and Monday look to be dry.

Temperatures are expected to start out within a few degrees of normal
and briefly warm about 6-12 degrees above normal just ahead of the cold
front Friday night then dropping to below normal over the weekend.

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.
