.Tuesday Afternoon Forecast Discussion.
SHORT TERM /Tonight through Wednesday Night/ .
The tropical, mesoscale, low pressure system driving the current weather pattern continues to meander around east central Georgia with satellite imagery currently centering it around Greensboro, GA. With PWAT values between 1.8-2.3 inches, this system has brought an abnormally high amount of moisture to the region, with vertical atmospheric profiles showing a nearly moist adiabatic profile. A moist, profile in the low-to-mid levels of the atmosphere combined with low mid-level lapse rates will make severe thunderstorms difficult to develop this afternoon, but widespread light showers and training lines of heavy showers and storms should paint the forecast area this afternoon before fading into tonight.
Tomorrow the surface low will move towards the Carolina coastlines with winds shifting fully out of the west, but the airmass over the forecast area will see little change with numerous showers and storms expected once again, though most likely with a bit less coverage than this afternoon.
Highs in the mid-80s tomorrow and near 70 tonight and tomorrow night will be near-normal. Enjoy it while it lasts before the warm up through the rest of the week.
LONG TERM /Thursday through Tuesday/ .
Thursday kicks off as the surface low finally makes it to the coast, pulling with it the heavy rain that we started off the week with. The flow on the backside of the low becomes NNE and our pops return to chance to account for afternoon convection. A few isolated storms could become severe as daytime heating creates plenty of instability.
From Friday on, the pattern remains largely unchanged. A strong upper level high pressure system over the SW United States will continue to steer low pressure systems from out of the great lakes through the SE. This nearly continuous upper level trough will keep pops at chance through the rest of the forecast period.
Temperatures will remain in the upper 80s in northern Georgia and lower 90s across south and central Georgia. Dewpoints will range from the mid to lower 70s for most of the CWA. This combination of heat and humidity will push heat indices over 100 for SE portions of the CWA Friday through Sunday. A weak cold front moving through on Monday and into Tuesday will help to moderate temperatures slightly, but overall the heat will continue.
AVIATION. 00Z Update . Widespread showers should be on the decrease after sunset. Widespread IFR cigs are possible again overnight, with some lifting to MVFR through the late morning. Winds should be on the east side overnight, but should go over to the NW side during the mid to late morning tomorrow. Shower timing/coverage on Wednesday should be very similar to today.
//ATL Confidence . 00Z Update . Med confidence all 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.
