Good Friday morning to everyone!

Sorry about being a little absent yesterday, we had an early morning trip up to Big Canoe to meet with a home inspector. 😉 We starting to get a little excited about a new home up there. Can't wait to share some pics of it but I'll hold off until we actually own it, but I can share the view. 🙂

And that's probably the way it looks this morning as well as light showers and low clouds will make for a dreary morning across north Georgia. Here's the current radar view.



Zooming out, we see an area of disturbed weather off of the Georgia/Florida coast that's helping to funnel cooler air down the east side of the Appalachians and wrap moisture over our area.



So for today...


Initial short wave ahead of the digging upper trough producing broad
area of light to moderate rain across the region this morning. This
pushes east of the area taking the large shield of stratiform rain
east by this afternoon. However, models in good agreement showing a
closed upper low forming in the base of the upper trough and slowly
moving across the area this afternoon through tonight. Although
better moisture has pushed east of the area by then, should see
scattered to numerous showers continuing, especially across the
southern and eastern portions of the forecast area through tonight.
Lingering PoPs along the far eastern edge of the forecast area exit
during the day Saturday. 


Saturday and Sunday


As the extended period begins on Saturday night, precipitation
chances will have come to an end as the cutoff low moves eastward
away from the forecast area and into the Atlantic. An upper level
ridge and surface high pressure then build in over the southeastern
CONUS on Sunday, promoting dry conditions and inhibiting
precipitation chances throughout the day. A cold start to the day is
in store on Sunday morning, with low temperatures mainly 5-8 degrees
above climatological normals and in the low 30s across north and
central Georgia. Temperatures will then warm to the upper 50s to low
60s area-wide during the afternoon.


You can see that the systems are moving through very quickly and are showing up every 4-5 days right now. That will mean some cool damp fall weather for a while. Temperatures will moderate some next week but not far from normal.

Have a great Friday and a great start to the weekend!
