Short term tonight through Thursday night
Slightly drier air and weak subsidence are expected to continue
today following the passage of a weak meso-low pressure system that
is continuing to the northeast. Isolated to scattered showers have
already begun in the northeast georgia mountains and in central
georgia, defying most of the suggested guidance. However, coverage
and intensity are expected to remain relatively lower with pwats just
over 1.5". Highs in the 90s expected this afternoon, with lows in
the lower 70s tonight.

Broad upper-level troughing will begin to get more zonal tomorrow
with southwesterly low-level flow continuing to increase moisture in
the region. Pwats around 1.7-1.8" expected by tomorrow afternoon
which will aid diurnally-driven convection, with the highest pops
expected over north georgia. Highs in the 90s once again expected
tomorrow afternoon, with lows in the lower 70s tomorrow night.

On an additional note, lows in the 70s are expected to continue over
the next several days. So far this year, we have had 77 days with
minimum temperatures at or above 70 degrees, as of aug 20th. This is
the most days with lows at or above 70 degrees at this point of the
year we've seen on record. Furthermore, the top 4 years in this
category have all occurred in the last decade: 75 in 2016, 74 in
2010, and 72 in 2018.

Long term Friday through Wednesday
Only tweaks to the long term based on the latest guidance.

previous discussion...

a moist and unstable air mass will continue under the flat ridge
aloft. However... A broad trough moving across the great lakes this
weekend should push a frontal boundary into ga. This front looks
like it will stall in the vicinity of central ga on Saturday with
a wedge building into north ga. This configuration should keep
chance to likely showers and thunderstorms across the area. By the
first of next week... An upper level trough moves across the oh and
tn valley region keeping north and central ga in an unstable
environment. High temperatures should moderate mostly into the 80s
by the weekend and into next week.

18z update...

vfr conditions expected through the
forecast period. Sct040 and vcsh this afternoon with most showers
clearing by 02z. Highest chances for showers and thunderstorms
current guidance suggests skies will be mostly clear with no vsby
concerns, but given gulf moisture, i'm not confident that we won't
see at least patchy low CIGS or fog in the area. Tomorrow,VFR
should continue with bkn040 developing by 17-18z. Prob30 for tsra
tomorrow afternoon with highest chances expected for northern
sites.

Atl confidence... 18z update...

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.
