Good morning!

Another great day in store today and tomorrow and even most of the day on Thursday. The rain has slowed down a little and pushes things back by a day.

A few showers this afternoon over the far east sections of the forecast area, but nothing to worry about except getting a little wet. Pay attention if you happen to be working outside though... there could be some lightning in any thunderstorm that might develop.

TODAY and WEDNESDAY
Low-level moisture begins increasing today on easterly, Atlantic,
flow, with enough moisture return into the far eastern reaches of
the area for some potential for isolated afternoon convection
despite weak upper ridging over the southeastern U.S. Moisture
continues to increase across the entire area Wednesday with the
better chances for isolated to scattered, mainly diurnal, convection
shifting to the western and northern portions of the area as the
upper ridge shifts east. Instability and lift remain weak through
the short-term period with severe thunderstorms not expected.
Temperatures remain at or a bit above seasonal normal's.

LONG TERM - Wednesday Night through Monday
Unsettled weather still on tap for the end of the week into early
next week. Have made some minor changes to the pops, in the
Thursday-Friday time frame, otherwise, no major changes were made.

Models have slowed down the progression of the eastward moving frontal
boundary for the latter half of the week. High pressure ridge in
the mid levels is a bit slower to break down than in previous
model runs, helping to slow the eastward movement of the front.
The boundary still slowly elongates from east to west, but it
takes a bit longer to set up across northern GA. The front should
set up/become stationary by late Friday or early Saturday. Several
waves of low pressure/mid level perturbations move east along the
boundary through Monday, causing multiple rounds of
precipitation.

The front finally looks to clear the CWFA on Tuesday as high
pressure builds in from the north.

 

WPC 7 Day Rainfall

So no weather of any major consequence for us to talk about right now, just a normal summer pattern. 

I hope everyone has a great day!

This was a post by Kim Elmore about using mPING to make hail reports (or any precip report). If you don't know what mPING is, it is a way for the general public to report precipitation events from your mobile device. Here's a link with more information:
https://mping.nssl.noaa.gov/

Now that storm season is clearly in full swing on the plains, as the lead research scientist for mPING, I'd like to make an appeal to RadarScope users and especially those that use RadarScope in storm chasing: mPING is in need of your hail reports! Regardless of the hail size, we at NSSL need your reports.

No matter how hard we try, we will inevitably find ourselves in hail while chasing, sometimes, large hail. NSSL is working on a hail size discrimination algorithm for the WSR-88D dual polarization radars and accurate time and location reports of hail are critical to the quality of the algorithm we develop. This also means that rain reports are very important, too, because a report of rain assures us that there is no hail.

We know that you may not be prone to report giant hail while you're in it, but even after you've escaped it by a mile and a couple of minutes, your hail report is still valuable. We will still have a much more accurate occurrence time, location, and hail size (in the event of hail) than is often available through any other source.

RadarScope makes reporting hail easy and quick while truly supporting severe storm research. You have precious data that we need, so please share it to further the science underlying the study of severe storms.

An area of cloud cover over me... and parts of east Georgia. On my front camera, you can see blue skies to the west.
