PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 509 AM EST Sun Dec 8 2019/
SHORT TERM /Today through Monday/ .
Surface analysis shows high pressure already building down the Appalachians, building a wedge in portions of northern and eastern Georgia. Mainly will see increased cloud cover today with mostly dry weather expected through the day today. Chances for showers will be increasing late this evening as a weak shortwave moves east through the area and moisture is lifted over the wedge. Have included chance pops across mainly northern Georgia for late this evening into the overnight hours with likely pops in the mountains. As upglide over the wedge continues into early Monday, chances for rain will continue with the best chances across the northeast mountains. The wedge looks to break down by Monday evening as the next frontal system begins to approach the area. Overall, with the wedge in place high temperatures this afternoon will be in the 40s and 50s in northern Georgia with temps in the 60s across central Georgia. Overnight lows are expected to be in the 40s and 50s, around 10 to 15 degrees above average. Highs on Monday are expected to be warm as well, around 5 to 10 degrees above average, in the 60s and 70s.
LONG TERM /Monday Night through Saturday/.
Fcst period starts with rather slow progression of a broad longwave trough and an attendant sfc cold front bringing widespread shower/rain chances to the area from the NW for Monday night through Tuesday night. Post frontal temps for late Tuesday into early Wednesday have trended slightly warmer. Still cannot rule out some brief rain to snow transition in parts of the far north but not expecting much impact based on this setup and trends. Models solutions continue to diverge in how much trough energy and enhanced moisture axis pushes east for Wednesday as the GFS continues to develop a rather amplified upper shortwave on the heals of the aforementioned fropa that stems from the base of the longwave energy, and the Euro maintains a dryer and less active period. Opted to keep a consistency fcst with not buying into the wetter GFS quite yet and kept pops confined farther south.
Next period of interest and also with some model discrepancies is Thursday night into Friday as overrunning moisture ahead of a developing Gulf low could interact against a strong CAD wedge. Some temps Friday morning are a bit warmer than before. Still keeping some mention of possible light rain/snow mix in the far northeast, but temps and possible wedge influence will need to be monitored closely if any cooler trends occur that could lead to different p-type concerns. Otherwise maintained general chance pops for showers Friday into the weekend with expected amplified upper trough west of the region.
AVIATION. 12Z Update .
Mainly bkn/ovc VFR cigs across the taf sites in the 5-7kft range with some sct MVFR clouds as well. Expecting bkn/ovc VFR cigs throughout the day today before MVFR cigs are expected across the taf sites after about 00Z this evening, although slightly earlier at CSG. Chances for SHRA will increase after 00Z and have included a prob30 at all taf sites for SHRA. Winds should remain E through much of the period, around 5-13 kts.
//ATL Confidence . 12Z Update . Medium on precip start time. Medium to high on all other elements.

I do not sell or share any user data or anything else for that matter. I do not keep site logs longer than I need to to keep bad actors off the site. Basically, I delete them after looking at them. If you are subject to CCPA, Google ads on this site will not be based on your past behavior so you will likely not see an ad for a lawn mower just because you looked for one at a big box website. I do not believe this site is subject to CCPA but I am doing what I can to follow the guidelines anyway.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

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.
