Short term tonight through Tuesday night
Hot and dry conditions will persist through Tuesday night as the
area remains locked under the influence of the persistent upper
ridge centered over the mid-south. A very weak surface front will
dip southward into north georgia and wash out on Tuesday.
Unfortunately, this will bring no sensible weather changes.
Temperatures will again soar into the mid to upper 90s areawide
outside of the mountain elevations.
More noticeable changes lie ahead just outside of the short-term
forecast period. A wedge front will be approaching the area from the
northeast by Wednesday morning with the promise of at least
marginally cooler air in the long-term forecast period.

Long term Wednesday through Monday
Still no significant weather concerns and dry weather seen with 12z
guidance in the long term period.
High amplitude pattern to remain in place thru Friday with deepening
trough in the western conus, positively-tilted upper ridge over the
mid-south, and upper troughing along the east coast. With strong
subsidence over new england and mid-atlantic states wed-thurs, sfc
high pressure will build in from the NE into georgia on Wed and
drier air Wed night. Temps, especially at night, will be much cooler
than we've seen last several days. Could be a few showers and
possibly some storms on Wed afternoon as wedge front moves in, but
coverage should be low. Current SPC day 3 outlook currently has no|
thunder. 4km NAM nest does show potential for a ribbon of higher
mlcape over 1000 j kg, but any strong convection remains just to our
south. Low clouds may inhibit sfc heating and sbcape. Will keep
slight chance tsra in forecast for Wed but less concerned about
anything strong or severe.
No chance for precip for the rest of the period as upper ridge
slides very slowly south. Westerlies shouldn't push close enough to
nw georgia for any chance of clouds or precip until Sunday. And
while the westerlies approach, S to SW low level flow will warm
temps back up to the 90s starting Sunday. Great.
vfr conditions are expected to predominate across the forecast area
through the majority of the forecast period. Local MVFR or lower
visibilities are possible 06z-14z. May see some brief impacts at the
kahn TAF site, however no impacts expected at the other TAF sites.
Winds will be generally light, 5kt or less, from the northwest to
northeast, increasing to 6-10kt from the northwest after 14z.

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.
