Short term (tonight through tomorrow)... A fairly calm night in
store but with increasing clouds as the lower levels of the
atmosphere begins to moisten up. Surface high pressure, and up to
850 mb, is centered just off to our east. This brings in a decent
fetch of moisture from out of the atlantic and into our area. This
will provide cloudy to mostly cloudy skies overnight. Cloud cover
that moves in overnight can currently be seen on vis Sat imagery
across central and southern georgia. Increased cloud cover will
allow lows to be around 5 degrees above normal with lows in the
lower to upper 40s.
Unfortunately, clouds linger tomorrow but with increasing southerly
flow comes increasing temperatures. Temperatures will be quite
nice with highs in the upper 60s for most locations, which is
around 5 degrees above normal. There could be a few peaks of
sunshine later in the afternoon.
Long term (Friday night through Thursday)... Ridging continues
to slide east Friday night, ahead of a closed low that will
approach from the west on Saturday. A cold front will associated
showers and thunderstorms will push into the area by Saturday
night. Rain chances will decrease throughout the day on Sunday as
the low lifts northeast. Weak ridging briefly builds in for Monday|
before a shortwave approaches Monday night/Tuesday bringing the
next chance for showers. It looks like there will be enough
instability to trigger a few thunderstorms with this system.
Things dry out again on Wednesday as the shortwave pushes east and
upper level ridging builds. Again, this won't last long with
another system approaching for the end of the workweek.
Temperatures will be slightly warmer than normal for this time of
year through the extended period with highs in the low to mid 70s
and lows generally in the 50s.

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.
