Good Tuesday morning to you!

Did everyone survive all the bad weather we had yesterday? Oh wait... that wasn't us. 😜 

Preliminary reports show that the damage wasn't as bad as it was suppose to be, so that is encouraging.  I have all the storm reports in an easy to read format at this link.




The next three days will bring more chances for severe weather and day 3 will be back over the same places that had it yesterday. Anyone ready to move to Oklahoma?



But for us.... just heat for the most part.


The heat is still on through the extended forecast period. Record
500mb heights for May in the 594-595dm range still appear likely by
Thursday as the anomalously strong upper ridge builds in across the

Southeast. While the 500mb ridge will flatten slightly into the
weekend, it will retain a firm grasp across the area with
temperatures continuing to soar well above normal through the
weekend into early next week.

At least some record highs will likely fall by the weekend with all-
time high temperatures for the month of May (listed below) still at

risk of being breached. Signs of any weakening of the grip of the
ridge hold off until at least Tuesday-Wednesday of next week at the
earliest with the GFS more bullish on this prospect.

Unsurprisingly, precipitation will be more or less nil under the
influence of the ridge with only limited shra/tsra chances in the
northeast GA mountains Thursday afternoon.

All-time May record highs:
Atlanta - 97º F in 1914 and 1941
Athens - 100º F in 1918 and 1926
Columbus - 100º F in 1916 and 1937
Macon - 99º F in 1898, 1953, and 1967


Notice that all of those records are VERY old. Here's a chart that shows which decade has had the most record highs and lows.




So yes, it will be hot for May, a record may get broken. 


Stay cool, keep those outdoor pets in the shade and make sure they have PLENTY of water. Have a great Tuesday!
