Afternoon Area Forecast Discussion

(This afternoon through Thursday)
Issued at 225 PM EDT Wed Apr 17 2024

Zonal flow aloft will continue across the CWA through the period.
At the surface, generally high pressure will continue through Thursday. A weak frontal boundary may try to sag southward across far north GA Thursday night.

Regional radar shows a broad area of showers, with embedded thunder, moving east across AL into far NW GA. The broken line continues to weaken as it moves east. The hi-res models have a decent handle on this system and continues and the line should dissipate the further south it moves. Have spread pops a little further south than the hi-res models, but overall there is no major deviation. Mesoanalysis shows some pretty decent lapse rates across NW portions of GA, but very little surface instability or mixed layer CAPE. The cirrus/mid level canopy continues to fill in, but any areas that see good heating could have isolated thunderstorms this afternoon/evening. Severe weather is not anticipated, but cannot rule out a strong storm or two.

The models keep tomorrow fairly quiet with very little chance for pops. However, there are some indications that a weakening MCS may approach from the NW overnight Thursday. Have kept pops capped at high end chance, but if there is run to run consistency with the potential MCS, pops may have to be raised from 06Z - 12Z FRI.


(Friday morning through next Tuesday)
Issued at 225 PM EDT Wed Apr 17 2024

The flow aloft is expected to transition from weak ridging to quasi-zonal over the course of Friday through Sunday as a closed low migrates eastward across southern Canada. Intermittent perturbations in the quasi-zonal flow will bring influxes of moisture and a source of lift Friday and Saturday, and on Sunday, ensemble guidance depicts a southern-stream shortwave trough passage. SBCAPE is progged to peak at 1000-1500 J/kg on Friday and Saturday, and with bulk shear of 30-40 kts, there is potential for isolated strong to severe storms with hail and damaging wind gusts. SPC has a Marginal Risk (level 1 out of 5) for severe storms on Friday across much of north Georgia with the primary hazards being large hail and damaging wind gusts. On Sunday, instability is progged to be less than the previous two days, while bulk shear is expected to increase with the passage of the aforementioned shortwave. Putting all these ingredients together, isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected Friday through the weekend, primarily during the hours of daytime heating. Not much has changed regarding the QPF, with rainfall totals generally ranging from 0.5" to 0.8". The GEFS and EPS are more bullish with rainfall totals while the CMCE is more conservative, so opted for the NBM for QPF to capture the middle- ground picture.

The larger-scale trough axis is progged to shift east of the forecast area and off the East Coast Sunday through Monday, driving a cold front through with high pressure in tow. PoPs will decrease from west to east on Monday as a drier, cooler air mass settles in. Across portions of north Georgia, Sunday morning lows will be as cool as the mid/upper 40s and highs will be in the 50s.
Morning lows will be in the 40s and 50s across much of the forecast area on Monday and highs will be in the 60s and 70s.
Temperatures will begin a warming trend on Tuesday.


(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 1232 PM EDT Wed Apr 17 2024

Line of shra approaching ATL early this afternoon. The line is weakening as it pushes eastward, but there is still some lightning back over north central AL. Will have to monitor closely, but think lighting chances are too small to mention for now. Added a tempo for light shra. Winds will remain on the west side through the period. Some patchy sct MVFR possible towards 12Z.
