. Afternoon Area Forecast Discussion .

SHORT TERM /Tonight through Saturday Night/.

Low pressure is currently situated off the east central coast of Florida. This low center will begin to deepen overnight and rapidly move up the eastern seaboard. This weather system will bring several types of hazards to the CWA along with some small chances of accumulating snow at the highest elevations.

Accumulating snow: Orographically induced snow showers are possible across the higher elevations of north Georgia overnight. Any accumulations will be light, under an inch and mainly confined to elevations above 2000 feet. The moisture remains very shallow across north Georgia, but with strong mid level energy/lift moving across overnight, a few flurries are possible mainly north of the I-20 corridor. (By definition, flurries do not accumulate.)

Wind Advisory: Sustained winds on the back side of the low pressure center will continue to increase overnight along with the gust potential. Have blended some of the MAV guidance in with the higher res guidance, as it tends to do better in these situations. The HRRR also has some 30-35mph gusts across the CWA and it performed very well in the last high wind event. Sustained speeds between 15 and 20 mph will be likely. Slightly higher sustained speeds are possible in the mountains. In addition, gusts to around 35mph or slightly higher are possible across northeast GA. Elsewhere, frequent gusts to 30-35mph will be likely. Soils remain very wet across the area, so downed trees and limbs will be likely with these kind of wind speeds. Even though outside of northeast GA is a bit more marginal meeting Wind Advisory criteria due to speeds, will go ahead and expand the Advisory for the entire CWA.

Wind Chill Advisory: Will go ahead and expand the Wind Chill Advisory a little further westward this afternoon. Cold temperatures combined with the windy conditions will create Wind Chills in the single digits for much of north and northwest GA.

Red Flag Warning: MinRH values will dip down into the teens tomorrow afternoon. With frequent gusts to over 20mph and low fuel moistures, we will be meeting criteria for Red Flag Warning. This is has been coordinated with Fire Officials.

LONG TERM /Sunday through Friday/.

The long term period kicks off with dry conditions courtesy of northwesterly flow aloft and high pressure at the surface across the Southeast for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Portions of eastern-central Georgia could have minimum relative humidity values just below 25% for several hours and wind gusts between 15-20 mph on Sunday afternoon, which could warrant a Fire Danger Statement.

Wednesday and Thursday will bring a transition to a WAA/moisture advection regime with southerly-component winds at the low- and mid-levels. Meanwhile, an upper-level trough will swing across the Four Corners and southern Great Plains with a cold front in tow. Have chance to likely PoPs on Wednesday and likely PoPs on Thursday. Still leaving thunder out of the grids as progged instability remains slim to none. In addition, the best forcing for ascent looks to remain well to our north, so for now there is no signal for widespread severe weather. PWATs will be well-above- normal (surging to 1.25" to 1.50" on Wednesday and Thursday) so periods of heavy rain could be a potential hazard. The QPF for the period of 00z Wednesday to 18z Friday is 1.00" to 1.75" for much of the CWA, with 2.00" to 3.00" roughly along and north of a line from Rome to Canton to Gainesville. The GFS and ECMWF depict the FROPA occurring Thursday night into Friday morning.

For Monday through Thursday, high temps will run as much as ~10 degrees above average and lows as much as ~20 degrees above average, courtesy of the WAA/moisture advection regime.
