PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 437 AM EDT Sat Apr 4 2020/
SHORT TERM /Today through Sunday/ .
Dry weather expected through short term period. Models are in good agreement, with the weak upper level ridge flattening as surface high pressure shifts east. Mostly clear skies are expected. ted across the area with mainly mid and high clouds filtering into the area through tomorrow afternoon. With moisture increasing will see slight chance of showers mainly in the higher elevations of northeast GA tomorrow afternoon. Temperatures will continue above normal through the period.
LONG TERM /Sunday Night through Friday/ .
Expecting a transition to a more active pattern of various weak impulses and enhanced moisture advecting across the area along broad NW to zonal flow to allow for slight to chance pops most days. While no strong forcing is indicated in the model solutions, the best consensus with greater moisture present continues to be with a disturbance on Tuesday so have greater chance to likely pops. QPF with this system has most locations getting a third to a half inch, and less with any other weak waves through Wednesday. Euro and GFS are starting to indicate some stronger forcing and possible fropa sometime in the Thurs/Fri period but still have notable discrepancies so uncertainty remains pretty high. Enough progged conditional instability present to include general slight to chance thunderstorm mention for portions of the CWA thru period.
Above normal temps thru the week, though coolest day Tuesday given aforementioned increased precip potential.
AVIATION. 12Z Update . VFR conditions are expected through the period. Winds will initially favor the northwest at 5-10kts, but could see northeast winds near 5 kts between 14-19Z.
//ATL Confidence . 12Z Update . Medium confidence in winds, high confidence all other elements.

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

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.
