Area Forecast Discussion . Updated for Aviation National Weather Service Peachtree City GA 740 AM EDT Sat Aug 8 2020
SHORT TERM /Today through Sunday/. An upper ridge will build across the southeast through the short term. The remnants of a surface boundary persists across central GA while somewhat drier air has spread into portions of north GA. An unstable air mass and diurnal heating will support isolated to scattered convection this afternoon into the evening . mainly across central GA. Not much change expected for Sunday. Slight chance to chance pops for the afternoon with diurnal heating. Heat Index values are forecast to remain below advisory criteria today and Sunday . ranging from 100 to 103 mainly across central GA.
LONG TERM /Sunday Night through Friday/. A somewhat typical summertime pattern looks to be in store for the long term highly characterized by weak flow aloft and weak surface high pressure. The nature of the upper flow will allow for weak short waves to move across the area. This will enhance shower and thunderstorm chances along with daytime instability. The shower and thunderstorm chances will favor the afternoon and evening but not necessarily end at night. Model guidance is increasing the overall moisture and this will lead to higher rain chances during the week, especially Wednesday through Friday.
Aiding the shower and thunderstorm chances will be high temperatures in the 90s for much of the area away from the mountains. This will allow the heat index to get into the 100 to 105 range for central and portions of N GA well into the week.
AVIATION. 12Z Update . VFR conditions are expected through the forecast period. Winds will largely be calm to light and variable through 14z then become westerly today at 5 to 7 kts. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms possible this afternoon.
//ATL Confidence . 12Z Update . Medium confidence on wind direction. High confidence on other elements.

If you are subject to CCPA, Google ads on this site will not be based on your past behavior so you will likely not see an ad for a lawn mower just because you looked for one at a big box website.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
