Good morning!

Not quite as cool this morning as yesterday as we've warmed up about 5 degrees. My high yesterday was only 69.7 F which is well below normal for this time of the year. 

The upper level low is now pulling away slowly so that means an increase in temperatures beginning today. 



Temperatures today will rebound nicely from yesterday...


And then goes haywire by Monday.


Summer "officially" starts on Saturday around 5:44 PM. Today solar "noon", the point at which the sun is the highest in the sky, occurs at approximately 1:39 PM, and the day is 14 hours and 27 minutes long. Friday through Tuesday will be the longest days of the year, all within a few seconds depending on exactly where you live. The earliest sunrise was June 12th (roughly for our area) and the latest sunset will be June 28/29. In case you were wondering... 😉 


And these are the forecast temperatures for 5 PM Saturday. Again... in case you were wondering. 🙂


We have a chance for showers beginning today, and as time goes on those chances will be on the increase. 


At the onset of the forecast period, drier and warmer conditions will be in the offing as shortwave upper ridging builds across the forecast area. Generally only isolated shower and thunderstorm chances can be expected Saturday afternoon and Sunday while most locations will remain dry through the weekend. Temperatures will return back into the 90's for most areas, especially by Sunday.

By early next week, upper troughing will begin to transition eastward which will bring a general increase in convective chances through the week. On Monday, guidance has backed off somewhat on shower and thunderstorm chances, though weakening ridging and increasing moisture should lead to scattered activity, mainly in north Georgia. The surface cold front will remain north of the forecast area, but upper disturbances will bring higher PoP's each day through the week. Coverage will be maximized each afternoon and evening with daytime heating. While widespread organized strong/severe convection is not expected, some storms could be on the stronger side, particularly with any enhancement from shortwave energy. Temperatures will largely run near normal as increased shower and thunderstorm coverage will somewhat limit afternoon
temperatures through midweek


I had to share this lightning image... looks just like a tree. 🙂 


That's it for now, I hope everyone has an enjoyable Thursday!
