Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Peachtree City GA 249 PM EDT Wed Aug 12 2020
SHORT TERM /Tonight through Thursday Night/. With todays main feature being a broad sfc low across the region and marginal instability with already scattered diurnally driven convection, the rest of the afternoon into overnight could have additional outflow driven development. Greatest chance for some strong to isolated severe will be this afternoon into evening with strong to damaging winds and hail as main threats in addition to locally heavy rainfall with little steering flow.
Upper low center is progged to advect slightly more eastward into the TN Valley Thursday and increase some deep layer moisture across the region (some PWATs could get near 2 inches), so have continued to trend to likely pops for more numerous/widespread shower/storm coverage. With little shear in the overall column and again marginal CAPE values expected, should see some strong to isolated severe again maximized by daytime heating followed by remnant outflows.
Max temps Thursday a few degrees cooler than today given expected increased moisture/pops but still slightly above climo norms.
LONG TERM /Friday through Wednesday/. Unsettled weather will persist into the extended portion of the forecast.
Upper level pattern remains active through the period. A longwave trough sets up across the Gulf States and remains in place through early next week. Several strong perturbations in the flow move through the base of the trough, each with the potential to aid in increasing the coverage of precip/storms. Models are progging a weak boundary to set up across the CWA for much of the period. Waves of low pressure will move east along the boundary, aided by the upper level support from the numerous shortwaves aloft.
With the thicker cloud over and more widespread precipitation forecast, temps near or slightly below normal are anticipated.
.Aviation 18Z UPDATE .
VFR cigs in the 4-5 kft range with scattered SHRA/TSRA this afternoon and possible MVFR vsbys with heavier precip. While coverage should decrease this evening, something isolated could trigger afterward into overnight. Patchy fog possible for Thursday morning especially for areas with evening precip, but for now just have MVFR vsbys for sites other than near KATL. Expecting slightly earlier SHRA/TSRA start for Thursday with more widespread coverage. Winds mainly on west side for near KATL then VRB with possible gusts from storms and outflows. Looks calm to light VRB overnight then SW 4-6 kts for later Thursday.
//ATL CONFIDENCE . 18Z UPDATE . Medium on overall TSRA timing and early morning fog potential. High on all else.

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.
