Good morning!

Did you get a good pounding of rain yesterday? ūüôā¬†It's not over! This afternoon will bring much of the same weather that we had yesterday back to our area again today. This infrared view shows the other shortwave approaching from the west and additional moisture building in from the south.¬†



NWS Atlanta


Another shortwave is expected to impact the local forecast area later this afternoon and evening bringing increased chances for showers and thunderstorms. Although typical summertime convection is expected in the afternoon another round of showers and thunderstorms will be possible in the late evening due to the shortwave energy passing through the area. The highest chances for showers and thunderstorms will be across portions of northern Georgia by the early afternoon where likely pops have been included through the early evening. In addition, some storms across the area today may become strong to isolated severe. SPC has a marginal risk for severe storms outlooked across much of northern Georgia and some portions of central Georgia. The main threat will be gusty winds, but frequent lightning and periods of heavy rain will be possible as well. Coverage in showers and thunderstorms will diminish as we get into the overnight hours, but at least slight chance to chance pops have been included in the overnight hours before picking back up on Tuesday.


As mentioned, the SPC has us in a Marginal Risk area for thunderstorms.



...Lower Mississippi Valley into the Southeast...
An MCV emanating from the ongoing MCS across OK early this morning should move east-northeastward across the lower MS Valley and  Southeast today in tandem with a mid-level vorticity maximum. There should be enough flow at low/mid levels and large-scale lift associated with these features to provide occasional organization with any storms that can form through the afternoon and early evening. Latest guidance has increased overall convective coverage across this area, with at least scattered storms probable. Mainly an isolated damaging wind threat could materialize with this activity as it spreads east-northeastward through the early evening.


This is the hour by hour simulated radar for today through 8 am Tuesday from the NAM 3 km model, it gives a general idea as far as how it thinks the storms will develop. 



By the afternoon hours today, the precipitable water values will look like this.


And those are about 1.5 standard deviations above normal for this time of the year. 


Because of the clouds and rain, we will have slightly cooler temperatures, especially on Tuesday and Wednesday. But with the added moisture, it is still going to feel sticky and warm.

Here are the highs for today through Wednesday.




So more of the same. I got a nice time lapse of the rain yesterday, as well as a couple of pictures of my vertical rainbow. 


I hope you have a great day! Stay dry! ūüôā
