SHORT TERM /Tonight through Monday Night/ . The short term period will be ridge-dominated, with large-scale subsidence bringing dry conditions to north and central Georgia.
At the upper levels today, the CWA is sandwiched between an exiting longwave trough to the east and a broad ridge building into the central portion of country. Tomorrow, the upper-level ridge axis will shift further east, while at the surface, the high pressure center will shift over the southern Appalachians.
Periods of relative humidity 25% or less are expected today and tomorrow in the afternoon and early evening. See the "Fire Weather" section below for more information on the expected fire weather conditions this afternoon/evening and tomorrow.
Lows heading into tomorrow morning will generally range from the upper 20s and lower 30s north to mid-30s south. Highs tomorrow will generally be several degrees warmer than today --- in the mid- to upper 60s. Lows will generally be in the 30s heading into Tuesday morning.
LONG TERM /Tuesday through Sunday/ . High pressure and dry conditions are anticipated for much of the extended portion of the forecast. There is some potential for a frontal passage by Thursday/Friday, but the long term models remain in disagreement with this system.
High pressure will remain the dominant weather feature through the end of the week. The models begin to diverge late in the week into the weekend. The ECMWF is now keeping a west-east front to the north of the CWA for Thursday and Friday. The front begins to sag southward Saturday into Sunday as a wave moves east along the boundary. The GFS has the most run to run consistency. The GFS still keeps the Thu/Fri west-east boundary north of the CWA and drags a cold front in from the west during the weekend. Did not make many changes to the ongoing forecast. Kept the forecast dry until the weekend in advance of the (second) front.
Very minimal chances for precipitation for the next seven days. As of right now, the best chances for more widespread measurable precip looks to be late next weekend into early next week.
FIRE WEATHER . Relative humidities of 25% or less are expected for 4 hours or more this afternoon and early evening. Coupled with 10-hour fuel moistures of 8% or less anticipated across much of the forecast area, a Fire Danger Statement is in effect for the entire CWA. Minimum RHs are expected to drop below 25% for most of the area again tomorrow, and with virtually no recovery of fuel moistures, a Fire Danger Statement will likely be needed again tomorrow. Wind speeds look to remain below criteria for a Red Flag Warning tomorrow.
AVIATION. 00Z Update . VFR conditions expected with SKC through the period. Winds initially NW near 10kts with gusts near 20kts will diminish quickly by 02Z to 6kts or less. A wind shift to the E is expected between 12-14Z, but wind speeds will remain 5kts or less.
//ATL Confidence . 00Z Update . High confidence all elements.
