    Good Friday morning! The only words I can think of to describe the next 7 days are "hot and miserable". Did I say I hate hot and miserable? 🌑️ I know... it's summer and that's what we get here, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. πŸ™‚ It should end up being a good weekend for the lake or pool, so I hope everyone can get out and enjoy it. Here are the thoughts for today and tomorrow. So nothing exciting and nothing out of the ordinary for a while. It puts me to sleep just thinking about it. 😏 Have a great start to the weekend!

    Good morning! Wow, we had a ton of rain down here yesterday. I know Tampa set a daily record yesterday with 3.66" of rain, I would guess we had close to that amount. More in store today although as the low pulls west, our chances go down. I need some beach time... πŸ˜‰ Here's the latest from the NHC So as this pulls west, so goes our higher rain chances. So... for north Georgia, this is what we can expect In short, more afternoon and evening thundershowers at least through Sunday. I thought I'd share some pictures of our sunrise here in Sarasota this morning. The sun is to my back, the camera is looking southwest in the pink shots, west in the rest, and all looking out over Sarasota Bay toward Longboat Key. I hope everyone has a great Wednesday! We're going to "try" to make it to the beach, not sure how successful we're gonna be but are going to give it a shot! We have some scattered showers around this morning, and if today is like yesterday, they should increase in coverage as the day goes on. Have a great day!

    Good morning! I know we have a lot of people on vacation and off in other far away places, so the weather here is not as important for those people, it's only important where you are at. I had a follower send me a message yesterday about having difficulty breathing after returning from the beach along the panhandle of Florida, and was asking if the Saharan dust could be a possibility. And while that doesn't appear to be the culprit, algae blooms could be. If you've ever been along the coast when the Red Tide is present, you know what I'm talking about. But right now... the Red Tide is not being reported anywhere in Florida. I've had the same issues this person was talking about when I've been down visiting my parents. The Red Tide was so bad last year (I think...) that we couldn't even get close to the beach. It's hard to breathe and your eyes burn. Speaking of weather in other places, we had a few records set over southern Georgia yesterday. A few records were set in Florida, but most if not all were record high minimums Today there may be a few more records set Record High Temps Record High Low Temps So... what about today and tomorrow? So HOT and at least a 50/50 chance for some rain. If you have outdoor 4th of July plans, stay alert to changing weather conditions and remember... when the thunder roars, go indoors. If you can hear thunder, you're close enough to be hit by lightning. As far as I'm concerned... this next part is the good stuff. WPC Rainfall Forecast Through Sunday Hopefully we'll get back to less heat and a little more clouds and rain. All in all, still not a terrible forecast even for the 4th. Hope everyone has a great day! Stay cool!

    Good Saturday morning to everyone! I hope you enjoyed the great weather we had yesterday, as that same weather should continue through the weekend before some real heat returns on Monday. So nothing out of the ordinary for the weekend, but Monday and Tuesday may be pretty hot. Take note of the potential for showers on July 4th. But all in all, not a bad forecast, and if we can keep those really high temps to just a couple of day, things will be great. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

    That one is a little out of my wheelhouse. πŸ™‚ After suspected tornadoes, the NWS is very quick to do a survey of the damage. There are certified consulting meteorologist that can do some of those specific things as well.

    Good morning everyone! Hope everyone got a little rain yesterday, I know some got a lot! Now you get a chance to dry out for about three days before the afternoon and evening showers return. Temperatures will be hot so the drying will happen pretty quickly. But right now the whole country is quiet... So we won't be seeing the widespread showers and thunderstorms that we've had for the last 7 days or so, or maybe everyone is on vacation in Florida and the weather doesn't matter here. πŸ™‚ Beautiful noctilucent clouds! Watch for the blue! Hope everyone has a great day!

    Good Saturday morning to everyone! Wow... how about those winds last night? That was something wasn't it? All of that weather was brought to you by a system known as a Mesoscale Convective System or MCS. In the summertime with the right setup, we can get in a NW flow situation that brings these systems to north Georgia and that's what happened during the overnight hours. The MCS originated over the high plains and traveled to Georgia on those NW winds. It also appears that there might have been a wake low associated with the event, and I'm sure we'll hear more about that as the day goes on. For Georgia, high winds and heavy rain were the main issues. There are LOTS of reports of trees down all across north Georgia. The winds woke me up with a loud roar around 2:20 am here in Gwinnett. It was so loud I had to get up and see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, tore open the shutters and threw up the sash... sorry... I got carried away. πŸ™‚ In this radar image (current as of 8:13 am) you can see the MCS that moved through north Georgia is now near the coast, but notice a new one headed southeast toward Georgia, and that will be our next potential severe weather system. Let's go to the Greenville SC NWS office for their thoughts for NE Georgia for today. Let's also listen to the Atlanta NWS office with a little more detail. Again... the highlights are mine. So just like yesterday, we will most likely see another round of heavy weather late this afternoon and evening. Remember to always have multiple methods of receiving weather information, especially while sleeping. I will be monitoring the next MCS and let you know how things are looking later today.

    I saw a tweet about yesterday’s system of the hurricane like similarities it had with outflow and such

    Good morning and Happy Friday! Everyone gets a chance to dry some today before the next round of rain returns tonight. So as you can see, the chances for strong to severe storms increase overnight and into tomorrow, so pay attention to the weather as time gets closer. In the meantime, enjoy this day, it should be a great one! Oh! Happy Summer! πŸ™‚ It starts around 11:55 this morning!

    Good morning! I'm STILL going through videos but now I'm on to the dashcam versions. Imagine taking 5 minute videos for 3500 miles and you might get the idea of how many there are to go through. Granted, some days I didn't use it, like from our place in Cape Cod to the ferry, or our place to the whale watch dock, but those weren't far at all. I've already deleted most of them (and of course wish I hadn't...) as I had to take out some big chunks of boring driving, but they are great to show the New England settings and landscape. I'm almost ready to post the links to everything but I still have some videos to go through before I'm done. I'm starting to have fun with Adobe Premier Pro and would like to go back through some videos and "fix" them up a little. But I know you'd much rather hear about the weather so.... Rain Have a great day! Ok... 😜 There are and have been some showers around the north Georgia area this morning. The current radar shows more rain to our west and the entire system is headed east. So yes, rain chances every day. It's summertime. Get out and get wet! πŸ™‚ Just listen for thunder. Remember... if you can hear the thunder, you're close enough to be hit. Don't be a statistic, stay safe and have fun!

    Good Monday morning to everyone! The start of the afternoon showers and thunderstorms was delayed by a day, but today should mark the beginning. So again... summertime in Georgia. Here's the general forecast and your's may vary just a little bit. Here's the 7 day rainfall forecast. Much of the rain is around the edge of the high pressure sitting out along the Atlantic coast. The best chance for showers and thunderstorms should be on Thursday. So no big changes and nothing out of the ordinary. Have a great Monday!

    Good morning! I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! It appears that the weather turned out pretty decent for most people. More afternoon and evening showers in the forecast, but no much need to talk about that, but there may be something to talk about for next weekend. The latest GFS is now pulling the low back and lifting it north over the TX area as you can see in this precipitable water loop. All of the reddish colors are precipitable water values that are 2" and above. The Euro on the other hand, spins this up and brings it right across Georgia, so this is certainly something that bears watching. Notice the areas in blue in the center of the red, those are PW' values in the 3-4" range. I know a lot of people are on vacation and at the beaches, so I'll be tracking this potential disturbance for you. As soon as we know more, I will be sure to let you know so please keep checking back. Otherwise, have a GREAT day! We're headed downtown tonight to see Jeff Lynne and ELO! I'll send a postcard! πŸ™‚
