Good morning!!! You made it another week!!! 

Here in Gwinnett, there are 18 "school" days left and I KNOW that for teachers... it can't come soon enough. Hang in there folks... your time is coming!

Let's jump right in to the NWS discussion:

Shortwave that produced earlier line of showers across the area
has exited well east of the area over the Carolinas. Secondary,
more broad shortwave now affecting the local area with mainly
intermittent light shower activity. By 12Z (8 am), surface tough will be
over far eastern portions of the area with drier air working in
from the west. Have tapered pops quickly as a result with rain
free conditions expected by late afternoon into evening.


Big story for today will northeast the winds as tightening gradient
produces some impressive sustained winds by late morning. MAV
continue to indicate sustained 25kts (29 mph) at ATL and gusts as high as
35kts (40 mph). Not much variation among other guidance so confidence is
high in realizing these winds. Wind advisory looks on target and
no changes planned there.

Much colder conditions the systems wake as we return to the 40's
once again. Looks like lower 40's for the mountains but cannot rule

out some upper 30's for the highest peaks. As is the case this time
of year, air mass modifies very quickly and should be headed back
for the upper 80's to around 80's for the weekend with continued dry
conditions.

 

Spring in Georgia. Where you need a coat in the morning and a swimsuit in the afternoon. 😉

Here is the Wind Advisory that is in effect through later tonight.

"A Wind Advisory is in effect for Friday from 11 AM until 8 PM EDT. Sustained winds 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph will be possible. Wind gusts of 40 to 45 mph are possible in the higher elevations of the mountains. Gusty winds will blow around unsecured objects. Some trees and large limbs could be blown down and power outages may result."

 

Well, we certainly didn't get much rain out of this system that's passing through... I was hoping for at least 0.50" but I've only had about 0.07", and that's not enough to water anything. I certainly don't want to see a hot and dry summer.

Here are the hourly temps for Lawrenceville from the National Blend of Models, and you can see the temperatures tumble behind the cold from today.

Looking ahead, it won't stay cold for long.

LONG TERM /Saturday Night through Thursday/...

Saturday night through Sunday, a relatively weak mid-latitude
cyclone will be moving across the upper mid-west and moving into the
Mid-Atlantic states. A weak cold front associated with this system
is expected to protrude into the forecast area Sunday morning, but
with limited moisture in the area (PWATs around 1-1.25" in a narrow
band), only light scattered showers are expected along and ahead of
the front.

By Monday the remnants of this front will recede northward and be
replaced by moist, southerly flow as the Bermuda High takes hold off

the east coast. Some isolated showers/storms may be possible but
precip looks to mostly hold off until deeper moisture arrives ahead
of southwesterly flow on Wednesday and Thursday. Ample instability
will also be present, resulting in the possibility of our first
real taste of widespread summertime convective storms mid-way
through next week.

 

I'm ready to see some afternoon and evening thunderstorms. It wouldn't feel like Georgia otherwise. 🙂

I hope everyone has a great Friday.

I am getting concerned about the potential of a hot droughty summer! With the exception of the heavy rain event last week which was in a fairly narrow zone precipitation has been trending down since the end of February! It seems like that Bermuda High is wanting to make a home parked over or nearby the Southeast kind of like it did over the Winter! My location is 5 miles Southeast of the Athens Airport and I only received 0.83 of rainfall last week so a sharp demarcation zone of rainfall!!! Hope I am wrong but I have seen this pattern over the years and more times than not it transitions into a hot dry summer! We are due after 2 mild wet summer seasons in a row!!!

The song goes “In the summer time, when the weather is hot” but for Georgia, it should go: “In the summertime, when the storms are at night.”
