Good morning!

Did everyone enjoy the rain yesterday? I know my yard is happier today! Here's a look at the radar estimated rainfall totals by area.

Northwest - Over all, a pretty large area of up to 2" of rainfall

Northeast - The Lake Lanier saw up to 4" of rain

East - A stripe through Gwinnett and Jackson Counties, Walton County, and points east saw 2"+ rainfall.

West - The west side had the least amount of rain coverage.

So I'll take the much needed rainfall. And we'll still see a few showers today before everything clears out late this afternoon and evening. Monday and Tuesday look to be sunny and dry, but the rain returns Wednesday and looks to continue through the end of the week and into the weekend.

TODAY
Should see decent clearing late in the day through the overnight as the system exits
with ample sunshine across the area Monday.

LONG TERM - Monday Night through Saturday
The long term begins dry, however as a upper trough deepens over the
Rockies, a ridge builds over the eastern U.S. This will put the CWA
in a southwest flow bringing gulf moisture back over the CWA. A
series of weak short waves will begin moving over the CWA Wednesday
and will continue through the rest of the long term. While the
models differ somewhat on timing and strength of each impulse, the
result will be increasing chances of showers and thunderstorms for
the latter half of the long term.

 

Here's a look at the WPC 7 day rainfall forecast for the southeast. Afternoon and evening thunderstorms should help to keep us from drying out too much.

The state is divided... 😉 The north has had plenty of rain, while the south has been left high and dry. Here is the rainfall and rainfall anomalies for the last 30 days.

I am fortunate to live in the blue stripe area where I've had about 200% above normal rainfall. Those down south though have had very little rain and are running 50% - 75% below normal. 

The models are indicating a upward trend in precip as we exit spring and head into summer, so that's good news right now. 

So in summary, not a bad day today, we'll just start off a little soggy with maybe a stray shower or sprinkle around. Things will start to clear up later and Monday and Tuesday look great. 

I hope you enjoy your Sunday and the weather!

Steve the good thing is one tropical system along the east coat or a system out of the gulf and the drought conditions are replaced by plenty of moisture
