November 30, Friday

Recommended Posts

Good morning! Friday is finally here! 🙂 I've been off for the last several weeks but today is "officially" my last day to work!!! I'm RETIRED!!! :classic_biggrin: Now I'll have more time to focus on the weather, my hobbies, and traveling! You ready? 😜


Today, the rain returns. It should be generally light most of the day, but as the afternoon and evening approach the rain chances will increase, and Saturday will be the day with the heaviest rainfall. 


Forecast becomes more interesting for Saturday as a potent storm
system starts to amplify with a vigorous negative tilt across the
Mississippi Valley. Ample shear will be present, though the big
questions will be how much instability can be attained or what
happens upstream. This setup can easily have some Gulf moisture
transport cutoff by upstream convection or inhibited from
showers/cloud coverage ahead of the strongest forcing. The greatest
chance for strong to severe looks to be across central GA for the
afternoon, which SPC continues to advertise with a Slight Risk. With
such a strong +60kt low level jet, the stronger convective threat
could also easily push farther north. With mainly unidirectional
bulk shear vector orientation, the predominant convective mode
expected would be some bowing segments allowing for a wind and
isolated tornado threat, which could continue some into Saturday
night for the very start of the long term. The greatest rainfall
totals should stay more south of the area closer to the FL
Panhandle, though some isolated flooding cannot be ruled out with
training of storms. That being said, the airmass looks to have
nearly a record high PWAT in central GA close to 1.75 inches so
storms/showers will be very efficient with precip.

Rainfall amounts on Saturday



Look for warm temperatures this weekend, with Sunday's highs in the upper 60's to low 70's but don't get use to it. The cold air returns and highs on Wednesday will be back in the upper 30's for the mountains and 40's for the rest of north Georgia.

Thanks to everyone! It seems a little unreal still. I keep thinking of the Styx song "Too Much Time on My Hands". 🙂



Congratulations on your retirement Steve and I hope you enjoy whatever you do next!! I also hope you spend this winter predicting lots of snow so you don't feel like you have to much time on your hand!!! 😉

As a further complication in a Grand Solar Minimum, cosmic rays that make it to Earth and enter the surface, can trigger earthquakes and volcanoes and other tectonic anomalies. The penetrating particles (cosmic ray muons) from space decrease the viscosity of silica-rich magma. See: “Explosive volcanic eruptions triggered by cosmic rays: Volcano as a bubble chamber.”
