PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 244 PM EDT Mon Aug 3 2020/
SHORT TERM /Today through Wednesday/ .
Showers and thunderstorms, some strong to severe and associated with a stationary front, instability axis and SW upper level flow ahead of an upper level trough, are expected to diminish this evening.
The stationary front is expected to dissipate tonight as another weak cold front approaches and moves into the area Tuesday. The upper level trough looks to be less dynamic on Tuesday so the highly diurnal convection should be less strong than today with less overall coverage and is expected to dissipate Tuesday evening.
Forecast temperatures are expected to be within a few degrees of normal through Tuesday Night.
LONG TERM /Wednesday Night through Sunday/ .
As Isaias works its way up the coast the synoptic scale holds a deep trough through the southeast with an upper level low across the northern great lakes. We start the long term forecast in the exit zone of the trough which will reinforce diurnal convective pattern on Wednesday and Thursday. As the low is lifted north the trough begins to flatten out and we slowly work our way back toward a near zonal pattern by the weekend. Afternoon thunderstorms are likely every day this week as the pattern keeps sufficient moisture all the way up through the mid layers.
We remain around seasonal in terms of temperatures. With upper 80s and lower 90s across most of the area. Temperatures begin to edge up again going into the weekend with widespread low to mid 90s as the flow breaks down and ridging returns. Heat indices will begin to climb as well with widespread low 100s across the CWA, although cooler conditions are expected at higher elevations.
AVIATION. 00Z Update . Showers and Thunderstorms moving out of the area as TS Isaias moves up the eastern seaboard. Should continue to see Mainly VFR ceilings/conditions through tonight with some areas of fog Tues morning. Will see some MVFR VSBYs Tue morning but it will burn off shortly after sunrise. Will see some isolated thunderstorms pop back up Tuesday afternoon but not expecting as much coverage as we saw today. The storms are expected to stay very isolated so will leave them out of the 00z TAF. Winds will be light and mainly out of the east over night. Will see winds shift to the W to SW by 13-15z Tue with speeds staying 10kt or less.
//ATL Confidence . 00Z Update . Confidence high on all elements.

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 numerous 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.
