SHORT TERM
(This afternoon through Monday)
Issued at 220 PM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

Generally quiet conditions will persist through the forecast area through the short term. A weak shortwave will pass through this afternoon, but the forecast area is expected to remain largely rain free. However, a few light (emphasis on light) sprinkles could occur this afternoon associated with the shortwave passing overhead as some increased Gulf moisture into the atmospheric column (PWATS ~0.8- 1.0") coincides with surface based instability (MUCAPE <500 J/kg).
Chances of rain are very low end (10% or less), but not zero. Should this disturbance generate any showers, they are expected to be light and fleeting. Despite increased cloud coverage compared to yesterday thanks to the aforementioned return of moisture, temperatures will warm considerably to some of the warmest we've had this year. Outside of areas of higher elevations, most locations will achieve high temperatures in the low to mid 80s this afternoon. With strong mixing today in addition to the increased surface pressure gradient from the surface high pressure to our south and the low pressure system to our northeast across New England, will continue to see some gusty conditions for portions of the forecast area with the strongest gusts forecast across far north Georgia between 20 and 25 mph. Tomorrow, similar conditions will persist with slightly warmer maximum daytime temperatures. Winds will remain out of the west/southwest but gusts will finally back off (a nice reprieve from the last several days where winds have been quite breezy) as the high pressure shifts off to the east. Overnight low temperatures will be relatively warm, generally running in the 50s across the forecast area as high cloud coverage keeps temperatures elevated.

LONG TERM
(Tuesday morning through next Saturday)
Issued at 220 PM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

Continuing the dry streak into Tuesday as mid level ridging sits in place over much of the eastern CONUS. By Wednesday morning, a low pressure system is expected to track into the great lakes region, moving north of the ridging pattern solidly in place over the southeast. With the parent low tracking northward into the great lakes, the resulting energy is forecasted to be limited which will overall limit the extent of the cold front pushing into Georgia.
Expecting north Georgia generally north of I-20 to experience showers and thunderstorms. Considering the energy is well displaced to the north, not expecting any severe weather associated with these increased rain chances. Moving into Thursday temps will continue to warm with highs in the mid to upper 80s for much of the area into Friday with a stray 90 degree temp reading not being out of the question for central GA.

Rain chances come to the area (north GA) again for the weekend with another cold front approaching the area and resulting in a slight cool down with highs Sunday currently in the 60s to 70s for the area.
There does remain model discrepancy over this system and it's timing, but overall looking at scattered amounts of rainfall with under an inch expected.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 733 PM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

VFR conditions expected to continue. After some wind gusts to near 20 knots for the next couple of hours, winds will be very light. Many locations will decouple to light and variable or calm later this evening and overnight. High clouds will continue to filter into the area from the NW overnight, with clouds thinning late tonight and Mon morning. There is a slightly better shot at some low cloudiness at around 6kft Mon afternoon, but only few to perhaps scattered coverage expected.
