Afternoon area forecast discussion...
Short term tonight through Saturday night
Weak frontal boundary continues to sag south across far northern ga
this afternoon. The front will move slowly southward overnight, and
should stall across central portions of the cwfa overnight or into
tomorrow. In the mid levels, mostly zonal flow will allow several
pieces of shortwave energy to move quickly east within the flow,
interacting with the stalled boundary.
Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are anticipated for
the next two days. Widespread severe weather is not anticipated, but
a few stronger storms or an isolated severe storm will be possible.
Gusty winds and frequent lightning will be possible with the
stronger storms. In addition, pwats of 2"+ with bl winds of less than
15kt will allow for slow moving heavy rainers.
Long term Sunday through Friday
To start the new week, a potential tropical low pressure system,
currently invest 98l with a 70% chance of development over the next
48 hours, will be making its way northward off the southeastern
atlantic coastline. At the same time, a strong surface high
pressure will be over maine new brunswick and moving eastward. The
high to the nne and the low to the ese will form a pressure
gradient with northeasterly winds against the lee side of the
appalachian mnts, causing cold air damming and forcing a wedge
front to push through most of the forecast area and replace the
prepositioned stationary front. This will be our best chance of
breaking our current streak of 28 days of temperatures at or above
70 for atlanta, barring any strong outflows later today. This is
the 13th longest streak of its kind on record going back to 1978.
With the continuing fetch of warm moist air moving overhead from the
gulf. Pwats around and over 2" are expected through the beginning of
next week. Combined with the extra forcing from the frontal boundary
should create likely rain chances with scattered convective
showers and thunderstorms until the front begins to lift on
Afterwards, a mid-level trough will sweep across the southeastern|
conus, returning the forecast area to conditions we've known and
'loved' over the past several weeks. The southwesterly mid-level
flow will continue to bring gulf moisture into the region,
continuing at least scattered showers and thunderstorms through at
least Wednesday. High pressure is then expected to follow by
Thursday and Friday with at least slight chances for showers and
thunderstorms. It's currently unclear exactly how much drier air
will filter into the forecast area with this next weather pattern
as things diverge within the model guidance, however, as the time
frame gets closer and other synoptic features come and go we
should get a better feel if a break from the rains can be
greater cover of shra tsra expected this afternoon. Activity could
linger well into the evening hours. About the same coverage
expected tomorrow afternoon. Winds will start out on the west
side, but try and go to the NE around 14-15z tomorrow.

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.
