Good morning! It's a little cold out there this morning! 

Here's a look at the current (8 AM) temps across north Georgia and the surrounding area.

Today will be warmer than yesterday with sunny skies and less wind. There will be a chance for precipitation for Friday and again on Sunday and Monday. That rain will bring slightly warmer temperatures but nothing too out of the ordinary.

Quote

Surface high pressure will be centered over the Southeast to start
the long-term forecast period Thursday. Dry conditions will prevail
Thursday
, though clouds will begin to increase by late Thursday into
Thursday night as the next weak system approaches in the northwest
flow aloft. Moisture return is rather scant as this shortwave pushes
into the area on Friday, so while scattered showers are expected,
QPF will be light and largely under a tenth of an inch.

Any light showers will come to an end Friday evening. Surface high
pressure will slip from the Ohio Valley into the Mid-Atlantic on
Saturday, keeping the forecast area dry to start the weekend. The
surface high will shift off the mid-Atlantic coast by Sunday
morning, setting the stage for a weak wedge pattern.
Southwest flow
aloft will bring weak overrunning and an increase in shower chances
through the day Sunday. By early next week, a large upper trough
will be building eastward with more substantial moisture return
leading to continued increased PoPs heading into Monday ahead of the
next significant frontal system.

High temperatures will run several degrees above normal Thursday
before reverting back largely to near normal Friday and into the
weekend. Above-normal temperatures appear likely by Monday given
deep southwesterly flow.

 

There are signs that our pattern may be changing in a couple of weeks.

 

I'll be watching the models for hints as to how this may progress. I'm anxiously awaiting some winter weather here in Georgia!

Hope you have a great Tuesday! Stay warm!

Starting to see some GFS eye candy here and there on the last few runs. Mainly from around the 14th to the 19th, which would time well with a mid month pattern flip. Obviously this doesn't mean much, but up to this point we haven't really even seen any fantasy storms on the models.

Yea, I'm starting to get a little more excited about our winter. 😉

Hard not to get excited about where we’re headed later in the month......

12z EURO started to hint at something as well at the end of the run

Take that low 300 miles south and we'd be in business. 🙂

DT's final winter forecast. 

 

Was on my way to post the same thing. Trying hard not to get my hopes up lol. I'll keep saying it after so many of the long range forecasts busted so bad last year, but man is it hard not to get excited about the potential.

You'll notice that a lot of people waited until the middle to the end of November to make a forecast, and others didn't make a public forecast at all. 🙂 Gun shy.

Tell Old Man Winter he has to wait for all the college kids to get home safely into the nest for the Christmas break.  Then he can make all the mischief he wants!
