Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Peachtree City GA 303 PM EDT Fri Apr 3 2020
SHORT TERM /Tonight through Saturday Night/.
Short-term forecast period remains dry and mild. Will see varying amounts of upper-level cloud cover streaming across the region over the top of the weak upper ridge axis centered over the north- central/northwest Gulf of Mexico. Moisture looks to remain too limited for any rain chances through early Sunday. Temperatures will be near seasonal normals each morning, with highs edging a bit above normal.
LONG TERM /Sunday through Friday/.
While ridging across the area remains largely in place a propagating shortwave combined with enhanced moisture advection beginning this weekend will cause at least a chance of pops after Sunday. The greatest chance for precip is Tuesday into Wednesday as the high pressure system moves off shore and the subsequent SW flow funnels moisture into the area. Despite continual rain chances, QPF continues to trend downward with most locations looking to cap off at around half an inch through the week. Weak forcing and marginal instability will keep thunderstorm chances down to slight where they will remain through the rest of the week.
Above average temperatures are expected through the forecast period. Precip potential will help marginalize Tuesday's temps, but they are expected to rebound again on Wednesday.
Model guidance having a hard time resolving low-level moisture trends the past couple of days with forecast relative humidity values running above actual values despite noticeably undercutting model dew point values in the forecast grids. This has led to an area of elevated fire danger across parts of north Georgia this afternoon and the issuance of a Fire Danger Statement. We should see a slow increase in low-level moisture by Saturday with minimum relative humidity values expected to remain above critical levels at this time.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
