    Good morning! When the weather gets like this, I feel like I'm talking to myself here. Once winter is over, no one really cares too much about the weather until it messes with their outdoor plans. I get it. I suppose it's nice that we can go on about our lives without worrying too much about weather. We don't have much severe weather here, so that is one less thing to worry about, we are pretty far from the coast, so tropical systems are generally not much of a threat, we don't get blizzards or heavy snow that cripples that state (I know, all it takes to cripple us is one inch). Yes, we can get hot but we can also get cold (or we use to), and we can have flooding rains but we also have droughts. I'd say we're pretty blessed to have the weather we have. So if there is nothing to talk about, that's ok, that's the majority of our weather here anyway. And that is the case this morning. It looks like the southern Tennessee border is the wall holding the colder air to the north where they are in the 40's this morning while we bask in the upper 50's to 60's over Georgia. We're going to warm back up to the 70's today under party sunny skies, but we have a chance of rain returning for tomorrow. Here's the rainfall amounts through 8 AM Wednesday. There is a very brief window for severe weather Tuesday, but the worst of it will remain over south Georgia. We'll find out this morning if the pollen count has peaked or not. In looking at the data in my spreadsheet, we have never had 3 days in a row of really high readings, after two it begins to drop. So I think we'll drop back to the 4000-5000 range today, and then taper back down from there. The rain and cooler temperatures will also help to bring the count back to a breathable level. The colors in this spreadsheet easily show when the peak of the pollen season occurs here in Georgia. The leftmost column are the record peaks on that date, the middle column is the average count, the third column is the sum of all the years for that date, and the records go back to 1992. This year, our peak will be earlier than normal. That's about it. Nothing more to say. Hope everyone has a Blue Sky day! πŸ™‚

    Good morning! Everyone should be waking up to another relatively warm spring morning! Our temperatures will be heading back up to the low 70's to low 80's today in advance of a cold/cool front that is slowly making its way across the central US. The map this morning is showing dewpoints and surface winds, and you can easily see the dividing line (even if I didn't draw it for you πŸ™‚ ) between the cool/dry air and the warm/moist air. Our dewpoints will be on the increase today as our surface flow shifts to the south and southwest, and that moisture will also be bringing the showers and thunderstorms along with it. Here's a loop showing the 6 hour precip totals, this goes from this morning to 4 PM Saturday. For those that may not know... on the top right corner of most of this images/loops I show is the "valid time". In this example, the 18z is the valid time. To convert that to "regular" time, just subtract 4 hours. So 18z - 4 = 14z or 2 PM. You still need to know your "military" time to do the final conversion. The 48 hour precipitation totals ending 8 am Sunday look like this... (see the 12z on the top right of the image?) πŸ™‚ And our high temperatures for today look like this... Most of today should be pretty nice and much like yesterday, so get out while you can and enjoy it! The fresh air would do everyone some good right about now. πŸ™‚ I'll have the latest pollen count once it is published, I expect it to be considerably higher today than yesterday. Have a great Friday!

    Good morning! πŸ™‚ It's hard to believe that we've had two great weather days in a row and one more coming up. Nothing of any great importance right now on the map. Showers and rain return starting late tonight and into Tuesday morning and will continue off and on through the weekend. This will not be the heavy rain that we've seen lately, so there will be periods of dryness in between the rain chances. Temperatures are going to feel like spring, we some areas reaching the 70's for highs as we approach mid-week. There will be a slight chance for some thunderstorms on Tuesday and a little greater chance Wednesday, but these should not be severe in nature. This is how the 24 hour period from Monday morning at 8 AM through Tuesday 8 AM looks for rain totals. This is what is expected right now for next weekend, this is from 8 PM Friday through 8 PM Sunday. The precipitation totals from now through 8 PM Sunday look like this for now. You can see that this round will be confined to the northern part of Georgia. Gotta share the love. πŸ™‚ There are still large discrepancies in the models as we head toward the weekend so I would expect some of this to change between now and then. As it stands, the "official" weekly forecast for my house looks like this. Yours is similar. Forecast here: http://www.daculaweather.com/ That's it for now. When we don't have any cold air clashes in the spring the weather is relatively benign, so there isn't a lot to discuss. I hope everyone has a great start to the work week. Don't forget to wash those hands with SOAP and water often! πŸ™‚

    Good morning! I had to zoom way out to find any weather this morning, and even then, didn't find much going on around the entire US. So that means that there will be NO RAIN today! πŸ™‚ Clear skies with a big yellow ball in the sky will be your weather for the next 3.5 days. It will start getting windy this morning and we are under a Wind Advisory for today. The winds will rapidly increase as the morning progresses as cooler, drier air moves in. It looks like NWS Atlanta is siding with the models that have the higher wind gust. Other than the wind, there isn't much to talk about today, and that goes for tomorrow and Sunday as well. I'll have an update on the rainfall totals later this morning so we can see how much rain we've received, but otherwise, looks like a nice break to me! I hope you can get out and enjoy the weather today, just hold on to your hat! πŸ™‚

    Good morning! Rain is knocking on the door this morning. Round one starts this morning. The good news is that the heaviest axis of precipitation has shifted to the south across central Georgia. Dewpoints are low right now but those will begin rising quickly as the rain and moisture sweeps in. Here is the 24 hour rainfall forecast ending at 7 AM Tuesday. Not terrible. There will be a short 12 hour break in the action on Tuesday and then another surge of moisture brings more rain Wednesday. These are rainfall totals through Friday morning. That's much better than the 5-6" the models were showing before. Here's the NWS Atlanta Hydrologic Outlook: The good news is that next weekend look cool and dry with nighttime temperatures 10-15 degrees below normal and daytime highs about 5-10 below normal, all under sunny skies. Saturday 7 AM Sunday 7 AM Last but not least, here's the NWS Atlanta graphic for today and most of the week. That's about it for now, nothing too extreme for north Georgia, but more of the same weather that we've had all winter. I hope you stay dry and have a great day!

    Good morning! A cool wet day in store for today as an area of low pressure moves west to east across the southeast. Severe weather is possible but the majority of what may occur will remain to our south, and you can see the SPC outlook areas on this map. NWS Atlanta's thoughts And the Storm Prediction Center As you can see from the SPC maps, the primary severe threats will remain over south and central Georgia today. Sp maybe we can get some rain in here and wash away the pollen. It may not be a lot of rain, but the rain combined with cooler temperatures will work to drop the count both today and tomorrow. This is the rainfall through 8 AM Wednesday. As mentioned, today will be cooler than the past three days and most of north Georgia won't get out of the 50's, while behind the warm front in south Georgia temperatures rise into the 80's. I'll have the pollen count around 8:30 - 9:00 AM today and we'll see how that is going, but otherwise, let's get through today! Again... I'll have updates as necessary! Have a great day! I couldn't decide on a Tuesday song, so I'll share two, both old and both great.

    Good morning! A nice warm start to the day this morning! Even though we'll have more clouds than yesterday, temperatures should warm up nicely back into the 80's for many people this afternoon. The surface flow will turn around to the south and southwest today in advance of a cold front that will bring some rain for Sunday. High Temperatures for Saturday There will be a little rain on Sunday but nothing to write home about. Temperatures will be transitioning from well above normal to well below normal as the week goes on, by next weekend it will be a little chilly. Not much else to talk about this morning. There should be a pollen count today, so I'll post that when it updates. Normally they will have weekend updates during the worst of the pollen season (they updated last weekend). I was out in it yesterday and I feel it this morning. πŸ˜‰ My guess is that it will be around the 7000+ mark today. This song you've at least heard (I hope πŸ™‚). Most people know the England Dan and John Ford Coley version, but this is Dan by himself with an acoustic version that I think is MUCH better than the original. This is Dan Seals "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight" Have a joyful Saturday!

    Good morning! A busy weather day in store today, so let's jump right in. A meandering warm front lies just to the south of most of us this morning, but that should be working its way northward today, and with it comes the rain and some of that will be heavy. If you thought yesterday was rainy... hold on to that umbrella. β˜” First let's hear from the Atlanta NWS Next up, the WPC Excessive Rainfall Discussion: NWS Atlanta has issued a Flash Flood Watch, and that could be expanded a little. Here are the WPC rainfall amounts through 8 AM Wednesday. Now, last but not least, the Storm Prediction Center I am following all of this closely today, so please keep checking back throughout the day. The music today is one I'm sure you've all heard. To me, this is one of the most powerful, emotionally stirring songs I've ever heard. I've watched voice coaches on YouTube listen in tears the first time they hear it. When I play it here, I throw it up on the big screen and listen through the stereo. The voices are full and powerful through good speakers. If I could have everyone over to see and hear it I would, but since I can't, here you go. I hope everyone has a great day! Stay dry and safe!

    Good Monday morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend! We are not starting off this morning very nice though. Some heavy rain is entering the state and earlier the WPC issued a discussion about it. The rain will end on Wednesday and our totals between now and then look like this. Temperatures will be on the rebound for a few days and then drop back down to a more normal level. Here are a few charts from the Euro ensemble to show the 10 day temps. Athens Blairsville Cobb County Dalton Tuesday is looking like a day that may bring some severe weather. First, NWS Atlanta. These are the Significant Tornado Parameter's for 8 PM Tuesday from the NAM 3km I'll be keeping an eye on that, especially tomorrow. The music today is music from a southern band that I'm sure you all know. And this song is made even better with the addition of Vince Gill And Zac Brown. I give you Gregg Allman and Midnight Rider. Have a wonderful Monday!

    Good morning! Gotta say, yesterday didn't turn out too bad for most people. Downsloping NW winds kept the clouds away and some people warmed up well into the 70's. But as you may have noticed this morning, things are just a little bit cooler outside than yesterday, and there will be a good chance of rain for pretty much everyone across north Georgia. The morning weather map is displaying dewpoints and surface winds, and you can see how far the front pushed into southern Georgia. You can also see the NE winds beginning to develop over the Carolina's and that will be building a wedge into Georgia as the day progresses. We will be on a gradual warming trend after today. Highs Today Highs Monday Highs Tuesday Rainfall through 8 AM Tuesday I'll keep things short and sweet today, we have people coming over to move boxes and tubs to a storage room so I'm going to be busy this morning... we're packing up and moving out! πŸ™‚ The music this morning is from Lyle Lovett. If you don't know Lyle you need to listen to some of his music. He has a strange twisted way with words that I love. Since it's Sunday, I give you "Church". Listen to the lyrics. πŸ™‚ I hope everyone has a great day!

    Good Saturday morning to all! Man, we've had a couple of really nice days haven't we? Unfortunately today won't be like quite as nice. A cold front will continue to sag south over the course of the day and with it come a few light showers. Once the front pushes the rain through, it will start to get a little cooler and we'll begin to dry out some. This morning's map is showing dewpoints instead of temperatures and you can see how they drop off substantially behind the front. There will be as much as a 20+ degree difference in temperatures between the north and south areas of Georgia today. These are the forecast highs. Sure is getting warm down south... As you can see, temperatures today will be a little cooler than yesterday, but tomorrow will be the coolest day out of the next 7. Notice the weak wedge that is showing up across the northeast. The chances for rain will hold on through next Thursday, but it won't be rain all the time. Chances go up and down as individual shortwaves ride along in a weak quasi-zonal flow. There will be nothing too strong and nothing severe. Still no real clashes of cold air in sight so that is keeping the severe weather at bay for now. This loop shows precip, and you can see those waves of moisture as they travel southwest to northeast. Once again, not much to talk about as far as the weather goes. I know everyone is tired of the rain, but guess what? The last 14 days has actually been below normal across the southeast. Who would have thought that would be the case? πŸ™‚ 14 Day Rainfall Totals (Inches) 14 Day Anomaly (Inches) 14 Day Anomaly (% of normal) While people are holed up and trying to avoid the virus, I am going to share some music every day just for something different. I love and collect music and have a collection of about 32,000 songs of all genres, so I'm always listening to something. So today I'm going to share a song that was originally from the band "Chicago", but this is a cover from a Russian band called Leonid and Friends. I'm sure I've shared a video from the group, but if you have never heard them, take a listen. If you close your eyes, you'd swear you are listening to Chicago. πŸ™‚ My wife and I actually have tickets to go see them June 11th at the Center Stage Theater down in Atlanta assuming everything is open again. πŸ˜‰ Since today is Saturday, I give you "Saturday in The Park". Enjoy... πŸ™‚ I hope everyone has a great Saturday!

    Good morning! Calm and dry conditions this morning but there may be some fog around. A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for most of the NWS Atlanta forecast area and also for the Georgia counties covered by the GSP forecast office. Here's the morning weather map for the southeast. Temperatures and dewpoints are just about equal in most places, hence the dense fog advisory. Winds are light to non-existent right now. Once the sun rises and temperatures start to warm, the fog will start to burn off. Temps will be nice and warm today so let the kids go outside and run off some energy. I'll use my forecast as the example today and this is the way it looks through next Tuesday. Notice that the rain chances go up and down and some periods have none at all. It's not a really wet pattern, more just nuisance rain and showers. There will be a 24 hour period from late in the day Friday into Saturday when the when may be heavier, but other than that, generally less than a 50/50 chance each day. Rainfall amounts through 2 PM Friday look like this. Heavier rain begins Sunday and these are the 7 days totals through next Wednesday morning as it stands right now. So more off and on rain with mild temperatures today and I think Thursday will be a great day with little to no rain and warm temperatures. Take a look at the forecast highs Thursday. I hope everyone stays well and has a great day! As my wife would say.... "Hunker down you hairy dogs..." :-)

    This has been one of the more quieter periods in a while. I guess it is a catch 22 situation as it is good since we need no more worries, yet maybe some little something to divert our attention would be helpful. Most every one knows I am a Pastor of over 35 years. I love weather and enjoy conversing about it. But my observations are from very little knowledge of my own, and some life experiences. So I lean on others greatly and trust them for guidance on weather issues. But I want to use my experience in this time, and at this moment of what I can speak of. Troubled times call for more than Inspirational quotes, and good vibes. It requires a peace that rises above the fears and worries and calms the troubled soul. i am not looking for converts or trying to overstep my boundaries. I refrain from pushing my faith on any in here in respect to Steve and all others. But I desire to share what I have Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you. Do not fear or be afraid... John 14:27 I pray that you and your’s are kept from all harm . I share my joy and peace with you, as Steve shares his wonderful sites and personal knowledge. Assurance in your source(s) is always a necessity in providing valuable community service. Shalom

    Good morning! We're going to keep this short an simple today. β˜” RAIN β˜” Our zonal flow keeps the moisture and rain flowing over the north Georgia area not only today, but for the next 7 days. Yes... the next 7 days. Just understand it won't rain all of the time, there will be breaks, you may see some sun, and everything won't stay wet. But go ahead and figure a 50/50 chance for rain each day. What does fall won't be too heavy, and the 7 day rainfall amounts show that. It will be pretty cool tomorrow as a wedge builds in from the NE, so expect to see much cooler temps in the wedge areas for tomorrow and Wednesday. Tomorrow's highs look like this. Enough for now, it's a struggle to find something to talk about with weather like this. πŸ™‚ Oh, I was wandering through the Twitter world this morning and found this. Watch the whole video. πŸ™‚ I hope everyone has a great Sunday. πŸ™‚ And quit taking all of the toilet paper. πŸ€ͺ No one needs to hoard.

    Good morning! Ahhhh.... I'm up early again (4 AM). Does anyone else get up early like me? For years I would get up at 5 AM to go to work, but I don't have to go to work now. πŸ˜‰ Someone please tell my body! πŸ™‚ Fairly mild mid-March temperatures at this 4 AM hour. Those 50 degree temperatures (first image) across north Georgia also have drier dewpoints (second image) right now, and that dividing line is a stationary front that is resting around the I-20 corridor. Dewpoints and 500 mb isobars It appears that much of Georgia is going to warm very nicely today, but the areas that normally feel the effects from CAD/wedge features is going to run on the cooler side of things. As the day goes on, a wedge should build in to the NE and work to keep those temperatures in the 60's with maybe even a few 50's for the higher elevations. High Temperatures for Saturday Much of the day will be dry though with only a very slight chance for some showers. This is the "official" NWS rainfall forecast through 8 PM today. Don't let today fool you though, the rain picks up starting Sunday. Rainfall totals through 8 PM Tuesday Rainfall totals through next Saturday... for now There is some potential for severe weather later next week, but the details are too fuzzy to talk about right now. Everyone knows about the coronavirus, so no need to dwell on that, but I do want to share this with you. You've been hearing about how bad the virus is in Italy, and they are pretty hard hit right now, but all the doom and gloom talk does not convey the whole story. Watch this whole video. This is your last really good weather day out of the next 7, so get outside and enjoy it like these people! I thought I'd share a couple of weather events that happened on this date, you may remember one or both! I hope everyone has a great Saturday!

    Good morning to all! πŸ™‚ Another day with off and on showers and possibly a few thunderstorms later this afternoon and evening. Nothing severe so no worries there. Right now we have scattered showers around the area with deeper moisture moving in from the west as evident in this 5 AM water vapor image. For today... The rain we'll see won't be heavy or long lasting, but if you get under one of the thunderstorms, you can get a pretty good dousing of rain. Here's the WPC rainfall forecast for the next 7 days. Notice the zonal pattern to the rainfall. South Georgia stays under the influence of an area of high pressure in the Gulf and the rain stays to the north of the high. I know everyone would love for the rain to end, but I'm afraid that's just not going to happen anytime soon. Again, it won't rain the entire time, but you can still expect to see some rain each day. As I shared on the Facebook page, today is the anniversary of the 1993 Storm of The Century. That storm was the most incredible winter storm I've ever witnessed and one reason I want to go up north to experience something like that again. If any of you experienced this storm, I'd love to hear your story. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1993_Storm_of_the_Century One more day and everyone gets a break, and I think people need it. πŸ˜‰ Have a great day!

    Good morning! If you remember, I said there was going to be off and on rain chances... right now we're in the "off" chance. πŸ™‚ You see that blob of red and orange in this infrared image? That is the beginning of a MCS or a Mesoscale Convective System. The thought is that by this afternoon, this system has a chance to bring some thunderstorms to the north Georgia area, assuming it holds together. So it doesn't look like any severe weather across Georgia today or tomorrow, and the SPC Day 1 and 2 Severe Weather Outlook shows that. The rain will pick up in intensity later tonight and into tomorrow. Speaking of the rainfall, here is the WPC rainfall forecast through 8 PM Sunday. Temperatures will remain very mild and above normal through the early part of the period, and slightly cooler in the wedge areas through the weekend. Here's how the temperatures look through Sunday. Nothing spectacular going on. Folks out in the Rockies will have some late winter cold weather with temperatures running 20-40 degrees below normal. Oh... but not here. πŸ˜‰ You can bet we'll be above normal. Due to some feedback, I made a few visual changes to the images below that will hopefully explain the time frame a little better. The NWS shows it in an hourly format because they will update this throughout the day and the "hours" mean different things later in the day versus the morning. Since I use the morning forecast in these images, the day of the week will be correct. I suppose I can actually get rid of the "hours" completely. Another time. I hope everyone has a great Wednesday! I can't wait to get out in the 70 degree weather! πŸ™‚

    Good morning! Mild temperatures and rain this morning, would you expect anything else? You may hear some thunder this afternoon, but it will be very widely scattered. Other than that, just rain, and not much at that. Here is the WPC rainfall forecast for the next 24 hours. Starting today, there is a chance of rain for the next 7 days but you should be use to that by now. πŸ™‚ Nothing new under the sun... or clouds. πŸ™‚ This is the rainfall forecast through next Tuesday morning. Some of the models are showing higher amounts but we'll wait to see how those trend before showing them. The SPC Day 1 through Day 3 Outlook shows that very slight chance of thunder but no severe. spc.mp4 Here's the forecast for Blairsville. I like to pick on Blairsville since it is generally the coolest location in Georgia and I wanted to show the forecast temps. We won't be too far off from normal for this time of the year, and those "normal" highs and lows are below. Notice the highs are close but the lows are above normal due to the cloud cover and moisture. Again, not a lot to talk about right now, we're in a weather lull for the moment. Until the stratospheric PV decides to unwind and do its seasonal weakening, we will remain in this pattern. We haven't had any real intrusions of cold air yet, so no clash of air masses to generate severe weather. There are some signs that there may be some next week to our west, but we're too far away for any certainty. Hopefully the rain will help to negate some of the pollen that is starting to float around right now. So far we've had a mild start to the pollen, but that only means that once it starts to rip, it will rip big. Notice how it normally starts to pick up after the middle of the month. That's it, not much to talk about for the moment. Now that winter is over, people's interest in the weather wanes and other than severe weather and tropical systems, there isn't a lot to share. As we move closer to April, things will pick up again, but until then... nada. I hope everyone has a great Tuesday! Stay dry and wash those hands! πŸ™‚

    I have seen a few tweets about severe weather occurring after the 15th, but quote” more north and west” unquote than what is normal in this time of year. I tried to look at the models during that timeframe and spy out what was being referred to. I guess the area for severe weather would be in Texas Kansas mid west?

    Good morning! Once again, not much going on around the US this morning. There is a large storm exiting the NE that brought high winds to that area, while a blizzard rages offshore. What a waste of snow. πŸ˜‰ Sunny, mostly sunny, mostly sunny.... you asked for it, here it is! I'm going to keep this short today and take a little break and enjoy the weather. πŸ™‚ Rain will be returning on Tuesday and will continue through Friday, so don't get too use to the sunshine. Here's the extended forecast for Gwinnett. You can get the latest NWS forecast for your area right from my main page at http://www.daculaweather.com/ Since there is nothing else to talk about, I've been working on a new page that will serve the Big Canoe area where I will be moving. Right now the live data is coming from my weather station here in Gwinnett, but once we get moved, I'll start over with my weather data up there. It's basically a watered down version of my existing home page that is geared more for that area. I'm going to add some additional forecast locations specific to the north Georgia area, and I'll also have a couple of new webcams to replace the ones I have now. Here's the link to the page. http://www.daculaweather.com/bigcanoe.php. Here are two of the webcams I'll be getting. All of my existing camera's are from Sharx Security and I have had fantastic luck with them, so I see no reason to change brands. Since I'm getting a couple of new ones, I may be selling some of my current camera's if anyone is interested and you can view four of them on the home page at DaculaWeather.com or on the Big Canoe link above. If anyone has any questions about my camera setup, just ask away, I'm more than happy to help out! This will be the camera that will be looking at my great view: https://www.sharxsecurity.com/product_HTNC4430XIR It looks like it has a football helmet on. πŸ˜‰ The camera has the following features: The other camera that will be on the front of the house is this one: https://www.sharxsecurity.com/product_HTNC4420PTZ Other than that, I've got nothing. πŸ™‚ Get out and enjoy this beautiful day and have a great weekend!

    Good morning! πŸ™‚ Some of you have had some serious rain this morning and it's still falling. This morning brought a substantial amount of rain to parts of north Georgia. Here's a loop of this mornings radar image. Rain-05.mp4 Here is the radar estimated rainfall since yesterday. As you can see the rain that fell this morning across north Georgia really bumped up some totals. Further south, they've had even more rain. And the bigger picture. For some of you in the NW corner of the state, for all practical purposes, the rain is over, maybe a few light showers or sprinkles, but it is fading. Here is the expected rain left to come. It's almost over folks... πŸ˜‰ As the rain leaves, the winds arrive. Tomorrow night into Saturday will be very windy, and with all the rain we've had lately, it's a good recipe for trees to fall. The soils are very loose right now and some good wind gust, especially at some of the higher elevations, can easily take down some trees. This is the GFS and Euro wind gust right now. But here is the good news. πŸ™‚ Temperatures will be cooler but seasonable through the day on Monday. So... the rain will be ending today and will be gone before sunrise tomorrow. Four very nice days in store after that before chances for rain return late Monday night. So get out and run around in the rain! β˜” I know you're going to miss it when it's gone! 😜 Have a great Thursday!

    Good morning! An active radar this morning across the southeast. You can see a Severe Thunderstorm Watch in effect across portions of southern Alabama and a Tornado Watch to the west of that. The severe weather threat should remain to the south of the metro area today, but thunderstorms will be around all areas later in the day. Here are the expected rainfall amounts through 7 PM Thursday. As I've mentioned, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and even most of Monday look great right now! Everyone will finally get a chance to dry out before the next chance for rain returns Monday evening. I'll have some updated images later about our rain totals and anomalies, but here is the latest radar estimated rainfall since yesterday morning. As you can see, the heavier rain was across central Georgia. And that is where the largest anomalies are for the last 14 days. So hang in there, relief from the rain is on the way. πŸ™‚ We need to get through tomorrow morning and we'll be home free. Have a great Wednesday!

    One good thing, at least as far as prediction wise. We started out with 8 plus inches predicted on models , and a lot of 6plus. As we got closer the axis of rain predicted has moved south and the amounts have dropped considerably

    I popped awake for some reason around 2am and saw the NWS Tornado Warning message a friend had shared. I pulled up my MyRadar app and it was scary you could actually see the debris signature bc of how massive this beast was. Wish I had taken a screen shot. I kept trying to find live news feeds from there and struck out. Just terrible devastation. Heartbroken for them all.

    I am now in the slight risk as it all has been shifted northward. Atlanta area is not far off

    Do you think we will get a Tornado as bad as the one Tennessee got 2 or 3 weeks ago?

    That means a lot, thanks for sharing that. I had a lady say something similar the other day on the FB page. Thanks again... πŸ™‚

    Happy birthday! πŸ™‚ Hope it was a good one! That is very possible especially across middle Tennessee, a place where they don't need that right now. I believe it. You've been warmer down there and your pollen started sooner. I shared 3 14 day precip anomaly images two days ago I think, it certainly showed that part of Georgia running below normal. Right now though, Georgia is in good shape. Cold air is still locked up north right now and without that cold air diving south occasionally, there will be no major severe weather outbreaks. We are still in a mostly zonal flow, and until we see some change in that, we will continue in the pattern we're in right now. Here's the temp anomalies for the next 32 days from the Euro Weeklies.

    Glad they are safe. My sister still live in Nashville but in the west part, she was fine. She works for a big commercial construction company there and several of their projects were impacted. I grew up there.

    I lived in East Central Florida during the March 1980 cold outbreak! 26 degrees in Fort Pierce and 32 on Miami Beach! Strong NW winds so an advection freeze that damaged a lot of vegetation!!! Snow flurries as far South as Gainesville!!!
