SHORT TERM /Tonight through Wednesday Night/.
An upper level ridge will continue to slowly move eastward across the eastern CONUS through the short term period, from the Ohio Valley this afternoon to the New England coast by Thursday morning. The influence of this ridge and surface high pressure is keeping relatively dry air in place across the northern portions of Georgia. Meanwhile, a weak surface boundary remains stalled south of the Atlanta metro area, which is maintaining deeper moisture and higher humidity across central Georgia. Convection is diurnally-driven in nature, but will primarily be limited to central Georgia, where slight chance PoPs are forecast along and south of a line from Columbus to Macon.
By Wednesday morning, the ridge axis and surface high will be positioned to the east of the forecast area. As surface winds shift from westerly to a southeasterly direction on the back side of the high pressure, advection of low-level tropical moisture will lead to increasing dewpoints and a slight increase in morning lows. With very light winds and humid conditions in central Georgia, some patchy fog is possible in central Georgia in the early morning. Furthermore, with increasing instability, an increase in showers/thunderstorms is anticipated across the forecast area, with slight chance PoPs across north Georgia and chance PoPs in central Georgia.
High temperatures mainly between 3-5 degrees above normal are expected to continue through the short term period, with highs in the low to mid 90s in north Georgia and mid to upper 90s in central Georgia. Considering deeper moisture in central Georgia, heat indices will range from 100 to 104 in that area. While some isolated areas could furthermore reach or exceed 105 degrees on Wednesday, heat indices are overall not anticipated to reach advisory criteria.
LONG TERM /Thursday through Tuesday/.
No major changes made to the extended forecast. The long term will continue to be characterized by some level of upper level ridging across the area. This will keep diurnally driven showers and thunderstorms and very warm temps through day 7. There are minor differences in the models with increased moisture and timing especially the further we get out into the run but they are all showing a similar summertime pattern. Overall the trend is increased moisture as we go through the weekend into the beginning of next week, and temps remaining mainly in the 90s each day. Right now it appears Thu will be the hottest day of the week with Heat indices in the 100 to 105 deg range. We will keep an eye on things over the next few days as we may need to issue a heat advisory.
AVIATION. 18Z Update . Primarily VFR conditions are expected to persist through the TAF period. A scattered cu field at 040-050 has developed across north and central Georgia and is expected to continue through the afternoon. Convection is expected to be limited to the south of the ATL metro area, with VCSH at CSG/MCN and no mention of precip at the northern TAF sites. Winds will be primarily W at 4-8 kts this afternoon and evening before weakening and shifting to E to SE by Wednesday morning by 14-15Z. Light winds overnight may lead to some patchy fog and MVFR vsby restrictions near CSG/MCN in the early morning hours Wednesday.
//ATL Confidence . 18Z Update . Medium confidence on fog development and vsby restrictions Wednesday morning. High confidence on all other elements.

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.
