UPDATE. No significant changes to the overnight forecast.
PREV DISCUSSION . /Issued 602 PM EST Sun Dec 15 2019/
SHORT TERM /Tonight through Monday/ .
Synoptically, a broad longwave trough will begin digging into the southwestern CONUS, forcing moist, southwesterly flow into the Gulf states. This plume of moisture, following a warm front, will bring dense cloud cover and isolated showers from the northwestern corner of Georgia all the way through the I-85 corridor, starting late tonight. Any showers that develop should remain light with minimal accumulations if any. By Monday, a cold front will begin making it's way through the southeast with a line of showers and thunderstorms making its way towards the area. Before the system arrives temperatures will increase into the unseasonably warm mid-60s to mid- 70s, around 10-15 degrees above normal. Some isolated prefrontal showers will be possible, but precip chances will really begin to increase Monday evening as the cold front reached the northwestern corner of the state. More details discussed below.
Monday night/Tuesday .
Heading into the evening hours (Monday), will be closely monitoring ongoing severe weather coming out of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. Hi-res/short-term models continue to show an overall weakening trend of storm organization/intensity as broken line of showers/storms approach northwest and west-central GA between 6 pm and midnight Monday evening. However, low-mid 60s dewpoints yielding just enough instability along with 40-50kt low lvl (0-3km) winds to support small pockets of organized convection that could result in strong to damaging winds and perhaps even a brief/spin-up tornado. Axis of heaviest rain with this system will be across north GA where a more prolonged period of heavier rain is likely. As much as 1 to locally 2 inches is expected with lesser amounts south/east of I-85.
Risk for severe includes areas along and west/north of I-85 through daybreak Tuesday morning (12z/Tues). After 12z/Tues, potential for a few stronger storms will exist east/south of I-85 from Columbus to Macon and points south. However, weakening low lvl wind shear and overall support should end overall severe threat across these areas.
Cold front gets through the ATL area around daybreak Tuesday and will continue advancing south and east, clearing the entire forecast area by mid afternoon. Gusty northwest winds 15-30 MPH will usher in much colder and drier air. Maximum "high" temps will likely occur early in the day for most locations, with temps steady or slowly falling through the day. DJN.83
LONG TERM (Wednesday through Sunday) .
Cooler (but near seasonal) temperatures will exist across the area Wed and Thurs but it will be dry. Next chance for precipitation arrives late Friday into the weekend with a lot of model run-to-run inconsistencies. Latest solutions showing a rather significant closed upper low diving far south then tracking along the Gulf Coast. Given the inconsistencies seen with the models and the fact we are still 5-7 days out, am leaning towards a more conservative forecast with just low chance POPs spreading across the area late Friday into Saturday.
No major warm periods or cold snaps seen affecting the area through next weekend.
AVIATION . 00Z Update . Potential for MVFR ceilings to increase or continue overnight with some potential for brief IFR ceilings toward daybreak. Improvement to VFR is expected for most locations Monday. Surface winds calm or light SE-SW overnight and less than 10 kts on Monday. Light rain or showers possible late tonight and Monday.
//ATL Confidence . 00Z Update . Low confidence for ceilings heights Medium to high confidence all other elements.

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.
