April 13, Saturday

Recommended Posts

Good Saturday morning to you!

Today is the calm before the storm.


Old frontal boundary is situated across northern portions of Georgia
this morning. This boundary will begin to push northward as a warm
front today as low pressure moves into the ARKLATEX. The low
pressure system will continue to push eastward along the old frontal
boundary tonight and then drag a cold front through the CWFA on

Not much synoptic focus for showers and thunderstorms this
afternoon, especially since the warm front moves north of the state.
However, there will be enough instability around that isolated
thunderstorms will be possible, especially along any mesoscale
boundaries present. The same holds true for most of the overnight


So not much going on around our neck of the woods today except your normal afternoon and evening thundershowers. Tomorrow is where the real action takes place, and I made an update this morning over in this post.


A quick look ahead at next week:


The extended forecast start as the frontal system in the short
term is exiting our CWA. There is still some back side moisture
sweeping through the state Sunday night so we will still have a
chance for some light showers or isolated thunderstorms but the
sever threat will be over by this time. The biggest issue will be
the colder airmass moving into our area behind this frontal
passage. Right now it appears low temps Monday morning will be
down into the 40's and 50's with highs mainly in the 60's to near 70's
Monday. Lows Tuesday morning will be in the upper 30's and 40's
across the entire area. Temps begin to moderate a bit by Tue
afternoon with highs back into the 70's to near 80. High pressure
also builds in behind this frontal system and keep GA dry at least
through Wednesday night. By Thur morning as developing frontal
system over the MS river valley will be pushing east and should
push increase moisture and instability into our area Thur
afternoon. As for now this end of next week system appears to be
fairly well organized and could bring another chance of showers
and thunderstorms along with the possibility of some severe storms
so we will definitely have to keep and eye on its progression.
Keep in mind it is still a bit to far out to reliably gage how
much instability and vertical wind shear will be present by


Chilly morning lows on Monday and Tuesday, although not too out of the ordinary for this time of year. 

Lows Monday - 0-4 degrees below normal



Lows Tuesday - 4-5 degrees below normal



I'll have the latest pollen count as soon as it's released. I expect a big jump up today, and I'm feeling the pollen today from yesterday. I'm ready for that to be over.

Ohoooooo.... 😮



We were sitting outside and the pollen was falling like snow.  We could see little yellow blobs that landed on our skin and clothes.  Tiny little balls of yellow powder.  My husband had on a black shirt and it was like he had little yellow speckles.  That was after sitting outside for only 10 minutes!!!!!

When will we get the next update on the situation for tomorrow?  I haven't seen much anywhere since this morning.  I'm hopeful that might mean things have improved?

Never mind!  I realized I wasn't reading the post with all the latest updates!  I found the info...
