Current forecast looks on track. Lingering isolated showers and
thunderstorms continue across the far SE cwfa. Expect this trend
to continue into the mid evening as storms feed off any lingering
instability. Temps dews look on track for now, but will continue
to monitor in case tweaks are needed later this evening.

short term tonight through Sunday night ...
a stable airmass persists over much of the forecast area this
afternoon... With the best capes to our east and south. A few
showers and thunderstorms have managed to develop east and south
of macon... And expect any additional storms should remain in that
area. Upslope areas of far northeast ga could also see isolated
storms this evening. Otherwise it should be another quite night.
Moisture will increase across the forecast area through Sunday as
shown by light southerly winds with rising dewpoints and pw values.
Have kept a chance or slight chance over the area on Sunday.
Forecast high temperatures should continue mostly above normal
areawide for Sunday. Heat index values should stay below advisory
criteria on Sunday.
long term Monday through Saturday ...
diurnally enhanced scattered showers and thunderstorms will be the
rule through the coming week. The area will remain situated in the
weak upper trough between the ridge over the plains and western
atlantic ridge. This disturbance will provide the impetus for the
aforementioned scattered shower and thunderstorm development. The
return of precipitable water values around 2 inches will contribute
to the potential for locally heavy rainfall through this time frame.
By the end of the week, the potential remains for the longwave
trough over the great lakes to push a cold front southward toward
north georgia. However, the extent of southward progress of this|
front late week into next weekend remains uncertain. Regardless,
scattered convection remains a good bet through next weekend.
Temperatures, while tempered somewhat by increased convection, will
remain above normal through the week. The increased moisture will
also keep afternoon heat index values from the upper 90s to low
vfr through the period for atl. Winds will be the main forecast
issue, changing directions a couple of times within the forecast
period. E winds early in the period should go to SW late overnight
and then back to the SE late tomorrow evening. Patchy fog and
ifr lifr CIGS possible overnight in far southern TAF sites.

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. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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 numerious 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.
