    • Good morning! Hot and more hot. That pretty much describes the weather for a while. Dry air has settled over the area and that will reduce the rain chances to pretty much nothing for most of us today. The dry air also means cool mornings and hot days. The winds are a little gusty this morning and that mixing of the air has keep the overnight temps up a little.   Highs today look like this. If you think these are hot... check out the next image after this one.    Next week will be hot, and Thursday and Friday look to be brutal.   But despite the hot temperatures, the only record high in jeopardy is Bristol/Johnson city TN next Friday.   Nothing to talk about so I'll keep it short.  Have a great day! 🙂 
    • Good morning! We made it to the end of the work week!   I have to give you something to look at, 'cause the weather leaves us with nothing. 🙂     On the morning map you can see the drier air (orange or rust colors) that will be making its way to our area this evening. The isobars are showing the 500 mb level, and the systems that come our way are are traveling in the direction of the line (and yellow arrow).    Looking ahead, you can see that the NW flow will bring waves of energy that can trigger showers and thunderstorms, but timing those and figuring out exactly where they are going to go is not something that can be done very far in advance.   Despite the hot temperatures, there are no record highs in jeopardy anywhere across the southeast over the next 7 days, so consider what we're going to have to be fairly typical summertime weather here.    Here are the high and low temperature anomalies for the month so far. Cooler than normal highs and warmer than normal temperatures are an indication of above normal moisture. Max Temp Anomalies Min Temp Anomalies 14 day Precipitation Anomalies   I had a GREAT time lapse of the clouds yesterday, and in case you are interested, here it is.   That's about it! I hope everyone enjoys the start to a great weekend!
    • Good morning! Low pressure is moving up the Atlantic coastline this morning and you would think that it would be taking the moisture and rain with it.    But no....       The chances for showers looks to taper off by Saturday, and we should see a more normal 20-30% chance of rain each day starting around then. Starting around Friday, it also looks like much of the state will have high temperatures in the 90 degree range except for the mountain areas. Those temperatures continue through next Thursday before the Euro brings in cooler temperatures. These are the high temperatures for each of the next 7 days according to the Euro.    Summertime in Georgia. I do not like the 90 degree heat, and luckily, I may not see it up here in Big Canoe, but many of you will have to suffer through it. It will hopefully end quickly and leave us with more comfortable conditions. This was the first glimpse of the sun this morning!   Also, I had a great timelapse video of the clouds and rain yesterday.  I hope everyone can get out and enjoy this Thursday weather!      
    • LOL!!! That's great! 🙂 Or not so great if you're getting chased by green eyed flies! LOL!
