Steve, is there anywhere where average Joes like me can look up wind gusts and speeds from last night. I’m just curious to see. Hubby said our porch swing went all the way up and hit the porch roof when it hit!

The struggle is real. Every now and then after a big storm, one of the NWS regional headquarters will post a wind gust table. During winter storms, the WPC will have storm summaries that list snowfall/winds/etc, but I don't find anything "yet" for the system we had yesterday. All I can offer are the storm reports for yesterday. It is amazing how many high wind reports there were. This link not only has the map, but a detailed listing in chronological order by event.

23 degree temperature difference and 6 miles apart. Oh... and 5000 feet different in elevation. 🙂 Height DOES matter. 🙂

My 8 year old loves all things weather.  He’s wearing his favorite gift from Christmas! He followed yesterday’s events all day until the weather got here - and then he was hiding under a blanket, lol.  He’s a meteorologist in progress, ha ha!

I had it made by a friend of mine, but found the idea online - you should be able to search and various shirt options should come up. 😊

Despite all my frequent naysaying I am definitely excited about the next few weeks. I genuinely believe that we may soon have something to track for the 20th-25th time frame. That being said the reason I continue to try my best to temper my own excitement is that the ensembles looked incredible over and over last year only to eventually abandon us.

Well, thank goodness that severe weather is gone. Now we can get down to real business...theorycrafting when the first Snow Panic of the season will hit!

Oh... it's a lot of people, and for that very reason, everyone has been burned too many time. It's one of those "shame me once..." kinda things. 🙂

I noticed the the big snow maps you posted are 2 different days.  Is that for real? 2 days?

They are 6 hours apart. It's just the closest hour I could match up. Those are accumulated snowfall estimates from today to those dates ~28th).

I hope you've enjoyed this beautiful day because the rain is returning. 
As the upper air trough (#1) moves off to the northeast, the front that brought the rain and severe weather (#2) will start to move back to the north. High pressure (#3), while weaker, is still continuing to influence our weather, and as the front moves back north, the return flow (#4)will bring the moisture and rain back to our area. The front is expected to fall somewhere across north Georgia, but exactly where will determine where the main axis of precipitation will fall. The NWS update is below the image.

SHORT TERM /Tonight through Monday Night/...
The current radar loop shows a line of showers and isolated
thunderstorms continuing across East central GA. This line of
precipitation is associated with the frontal system that moved
through the area yesterday. This system is expected to begin moving
back Northward this evening bringing increased clouds and more
showers back to north and central GA. This system is much weaker
than it was yesterday so no severe storms are anticipated with its
return. The frontal boundary has stalled across the Florida
Panhandle, Southern GA, and the Carolinas and is oriented nearly
parallel to the continued southwesterly flow aloft. The boundary
will begin to slowly move north as a warm front this evening and
stall across N GA Monday into Tuesday. Have continued with High-end
chance to low-end likely PoPs across central Georgia tonight,
followed by high-end likely PoPs spreading into north Georgia
throughout the day on Monday. Deep moisture and high dewpoints will
contribute to sufficient instability to warrant a chance for
isolated thunderstorms where showers occur through the short term.

Due to the continued warm and moist flow, temperatures will continue
above seasonal norms. Lows tonight and Monday night are expected to
be in the 50s and 60s. Highs monday will be in the 60s and 70s with
some near 80 across east central GA.

I agree and was skeptical about this winter season from get go! Weather pattern eerily similar to last year starting with Hot September/early October then the cold November! An amazingly strong and persistent Bermuda Ridge! Also very strong TPV and no blocking! While I believe we get some colder shots end of month and can never rule out a winter storm it just seems unlikely we completely flip this stubborn pattern! Maybe as we approach March pattern flips back to same pattern we had in November! That has been a trend last couple years!

CAUTION: Read responsibly, this is just one OP model run. It'll be gone by tonight. But it's still fun to look at lol. 

Very very fun indeed. This would make most of our winter in one blow. gfs-deterministic-se-total_snow_kuchera-9867200.thumb.png.1c37ca6dc332e28d3329cd4e45bf3d00.png

An extended period of more chances would feel almost greedy 😉

I wouldn’t say it’s gonna be gone by tonight..... nobody really knows what this model will do.

I would say with almost certainty it will be. That's just how it's going to be at this range. That's over 10 days away. It's just going to throw a million different solutions at us until we are inside 7 days at the earliest, but more than likely later given the chaotic pattern.
