    Good Tuesday morning! This is the last sunny day until next Tuesday, so get out and enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and enjoy the warmth as well... next week is starting to look like winter time again. These are 1 PM temps for Wed/Thu from the GFS/Euro respectively. The Euro is a day later on the colder air. Along with the colder temps, both models have been flirting with some snow across the north Georgia area around the 5th-6th time frame, and they have been pretty consistent with it for about 4-5 model runs including the overnight runs. So I'm watching closely, but after being burned all winter long, I'm moving cautiously with this one. The next 7 days of rainfall shows the higher totals to our south, and this is a good thing in more ways than one. It actually gives us a better chance at winter weather by keeping the warmer and wetter weather to the south. We'll see how that goes.

    Good Friday morning to 'ya! It's always nice to start off the month on a Friday. ๐Ÿ™‚ I'd play another rainy day song but I've already played them all. ๐Ÿ˜‰ You know the drill... off and on showers for today, some thunderstorms for tomorrow. Here's the latest from the Atlanta NWS office. Here is the next 72 hour rainfall forecast We'll be dropping down into the 20's for 3 nights or so, but nothing to terribly cold for us even though it will be well below normal. Here are the normal highs/lows for this week, and below that are the anomalies. Normal High/Low Temperatures Monday (Low/High Anomaly) Tuesday (Low/High Anomaly) Wednesday (Low/High Anomaly) Thursday (Low/High Anomaly) As you can also see, the high anomalies are greater than the cold anomalies. Enjoy the precip, enjoy the cold, just don't expect to enjoy them at the same time. ๐Ÿ™‚ Unless we happen to get a storm of the century, after this cold snap, I officially declare winter to be dead!

    On this date in 1993... the Storm of The Century began. The most EPIC storm I've ever experienced. https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/news/remembering-storm-century-20-years-later https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1993_Storm_of_the_Century

    Good Tuesday morning! We that we kind of a let down. Did anyone see any hail? I heard reports of hail in Cobb and quarter size hail in Chatsworth, but that's about it. So... for today... In other words... partly sunny and cool with a very slight chance of a shower. But wait...! Let's look ahead a little further! But that's not all!!!! ๐Ÿ˜› Starting Saturday, I'll be down in Florida for a week, but I'll still be checking on the weather for you. ๐Ÿ™‚ You enjoy the pollen, I'll enjoy the warm sunshine. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good Sunday afternoon! I've been out enjoying the pollen filled day, so I'm sure I'll be paying for it tomorrow. ๐Ÿ™‚ The count was up to 303 this morning, but it looks pretty hazy even without the high clouds, so my guess is it is higher this afternoon. Here's the big weather story, please read: Here's the current SPC Day 2 Outlook map and a portion of their discussion: So keep a close eye on the weather tomorrow, I'll be here tracking whatever comes our way!

    Might as well start it off with severe weather outlooks. This from the Storm Prediction Center http://www.daculaweather.com/4_spc_day2_outlook.php And this from the Atlanta NWS office http://wx.northgeorgiawx.com/ffc_afd_rec.html/ I'll be here tracking this all day tomorrow, so check back for more information.

    Good Monday morning to ya'! I'm at a loss what to talk about right now. I mean, what do you say about this? So, let's take a look around the US and see if anyone else is having any weather to talk about. Ok... nothing to see here. We still have flooding in Nebraska and Iowa that is devastating. I would not be surprised if many didn't have flood insurance. This will truly be a terrible tragedy for all of those living in this area. We should be thankful for sunny skies and mild temperatures, as the weather can turn on you in a heartbeat and change your life forever.

    Good morning! Well, looks like the weather is on vacation for a week or so, which means there isn't much to talk about when it comes to our weather. We'll be running below normal by about 2-3 degrees today, around 10 or so tomorrow and Tuesday, and then a slow warm up back to normal by Friday, with lows following the same pattern. When I see this... ... I know spring has arrived. So, get out and enjoy this cool spring day! Don't worry if you miss this one though... you'll have a whole week of them to enjoy!

    Good Wednesday morning (still!)! Cold start to the day today, I'm still in the mid 30's at 11 am, so probably won't be working on the yard today. Finally scalped the backyard yesterday and got all of that cleaned up and looking a little more respectable. Other than being a cold day, at least the sun is out and shining brightly. Hold on to that thought for one more day, because after Thursday, the rain starts creeping back into the picture for the weekend. The good news is that the temperatures will be warming up and reaching the 70's by Sunday. The bad news is that there could be the potential for some additional severe weather. This is the 4-8 Day Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center (http://www.daculaweather.com/4_spc_day4-8_outlook.php) Still too early to know what if any severe weather we may see here, so we'll need another day or two before that starts to get narrowed down. I hope everyone enjoys the day!

    Good morning on this last day of February! Man, this month has flown by! I guess that's what happens when you have no winter weather. And that is good, because I need to wake up from the nightmare. ๐Ÿ˜œ I guess you could say it "rained" on our parade. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Well, it's not raining right now, but don't think it won't! I bet you can't guess where all the rain is going to fall... Oh well, Who'll stop the rain? ๐Ÿ™‚ All of this warm weather and rain would make you think that winter was over, but Mother Nature always has tricks and surprises up her sleeve. The GFS starts bringing the cold air into the state around sunrise Monday... ... while the Euro brings it in the early morning hours. By Wednesday morning, temperatures are even colder with the Euro taking the lows into the teens for many. So don't put those coats and hats up just yet, the freezer door will be standing open soon!

    The one thing we can be pretty confident about is that March is going to start off much colder than it is now. Take a look at the GFS temperature anomalies from this Saturday evening through Saturday, March 9th. The Euro is in general agreement as well.

    Good morning to you! ๐Ÿ™‚ The big story today is the potential for some severe weather, so we'll jump right in to the SPC Day 1 Severe Weather Outlook: Hail Probabilities Wind Probabilities Tornado Probabilities Additional thoughts from the Atlanta NWS office: Here's a look at the current radar view I will be here following the action all day long, so check back as the afternoon approaches for any additional information

    The line of rain is falling apart. Cloud cover has helped to limit temps so far. Areas further south have had more sunshine and have a little more heat to work with.

    Good Saturday morning!!! Another nice couple of days in store with temperatures on a slow rise to the upper 60's to low 70's by tomorrow. Expected a corresponding jump in the pollen count, so temper your enthusiasm. This is about the time they start doing weekend pollen counts, so we may see one later this morning, if so I'll post it. Rain returns beginning late Sunday. Here's the NWS discussion: I couldn't help myself yesterday, I created a new page at DaculaWeather.com. This new page displays images and videos of the sun from the Solar Dynamics Observatory. I tried to make the page informative as well as fun to look at. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I haven't tried it on a mobile device even though I have three sitting next to me... but it looks great on the laptop! ๐Ÿ™‚ Give it a try and let me know what you think? http://www.daculaweather.com/4_sdo_videos_images.php

    Good Tuesday morning! Spring is in the air! ๐Ÿ™‚ This is the "official" Spring according to my wife, she doesn't believe in meteorological spring, nor does she want to believe that the 20th is spring, but instead insist that the 21st is always the start of spring, summer, fall, and winter. And she teaches science. What? A chance for a shower? Whew... that was a scare. There is still nothing to really talk about as you can see. I think most people have tuned out after the disastrous winter that we had, so much that I'm not even sure people are reading any of this now. Speaking of that, I would like to apologize for all of the busted forecast, all of the "get ready" statements, and all of the broken expectations. I think most everyone that made a forecast felt like it was going to be a blockbuster year, and it was for some areas of the country, just not here were we could experience it. If I had to pinpoint one thing that made all of the forecast bust, it was the fact that the ocean/atmosphere never coupled from the Nino. We just didn't get the atmospheric response that we were expecting (and should have had) and that in turn made the atmosphere look more like a La Nina than an El Nino. Here is the year to date anomalies, so it doesn't include December. That looks a lot like the weak La Nina from 1971-72. We almost NEVER have good winters with La Nina's, and that certainly applies to this year. I have redone an old blog post about the ENSO versus our winters, and here it is: Temperature anomalies for the winter of 1971-72. Hope everyone has a great day!

    It's a good thing that low is gonna take off to the north. If it had slid east towards Memphis/Southern Kentucky probably would have had a tornado outbreak on our hands.

    Good morning! Ok... TODAY will be the sunny day. Yesterday wasn't bad here and the sun came out a few times to warm me up to 70 degrees. I did manage to get a lot of work done in the yard, though I need to go get some more 4x4's today. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sunny today and partly sunny tomorrow before the clouds and rain returns. Here are NWS Atlanta's thoughts. There will be a deep area low pressure that will be bringing in some below normal temps for about a week, so just know winter is still draggin' its heels about leaving. Watch this video loop. This is the 500 mb anomalies (~18,000 feet). Watch as the two upper air anomalies to the west, merge and become an even stronger storm. That is called "phasing". Phasing can be close, or phasing can be perfect... think 1993 Storm of The Century. This one appears to be pretty strong, but unfortunately for us, stays to our north and west. It will still be fun to watch as the two pieces merge and this thing rapidly begins to develop, and a major blizzard will be on the northern side while severe weather will break out in advance. Also, notice toward the end of the run. There is an area of lower pressure riding along the Gulf coast. Last gasp? ๐Ÿ™‚ We'll see! So enjoy the next couple of days and get in the sun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good Saturday morning! It appears the severe weather will thankfully stay to our west today, but we could see some strong thunderstorms later this afternoon and evening. So there is the good news for today. ๐Ÿ™‚ @Asperman1 was asking about the wedge late yesterday, and even though it was cooler on the NE side of the state, we didn't (and still don't) have the pressures building down the Appalachian's to really make it much of a wedge. Regardless, the cooler temps are here this morning and will stay entrenched for most of the day. 4 AM Temperatures 6 PM Temperatures Overall, high temps will be normal to below normal today, but then go about 7 degrees above normal through Monday. Rainfall over the next 48 hours is not all that impressive for most people One more thing. It appears we will be getting cold again around the 17th, both the GFS and Euro are bringing below normal temperatures around that time period. Meanwhile... enjoy the weather and enjoy the weekend!

    Good Friday morning to you! Just need to finish up this day and the weekend is here! Some good news this morning concerning the potential for severe weather tomorrow and it appears that Georgia will be on the weak end of the severe weather. First... the Storm Prediction Center: And the Atlanta NWS office: Sunday continues the chance, but the conditions are not as favorable and are centered further south. Other than that, the only other thing to talk about is the same thing we've been talking about for months... rain. The next 72 hours looks like this: While the next 7 days is like this: So... showers on the increase today and a chance for thunderstorms tomorrow. Enjoy the day!

    Good Thursday morning! There appears to be another chance for some severe weather, this time to our west, but knocking on the doorstep still. Here's the Severe Weather Outlook for Day 3 That threat lingers into Sunday for us but right now, nothing to get too excited about. NWS Atlanta has this to say about it... In the meanwhile, our highs will be warmer today but we'll still be about 5-10 degrees below normal. Our lows however, start above normal today and go well above normal (20+ degrees) on Saturday. These are what normal's look like for tomorrow. I hate to bring you bad news, but if you are tired of rain, you can stop here... ๐Ÿ˜› The next 72 hours (through Sunday am) look like this... ... and the next 7 days looks like this. So.... enjoy the "shunshine" while the "shun" is "shining!" LOL! Have a wonderful day!

    Good morning to everyone! A sad day for many in Alabama and south Georgia today, where at least 23 people died on a day that would go down as having the most tornado warnings issued in a single day (97) since December 23, 2015. Here's a link to the storm reports for yesterday ( http://www.daculaweather.com/4_spc_storm_reports.php?yesterday ). The preliminary numbers look like this Today will be MUCH calmer with with cloudy skies to start with, but some of the clouds will burn off by the afternoon hours. Here's a look at the current radar image. Notice the lack of clouds on the east side of the mountains and into north Georgia. The lack of clouds is due to air that sinks as it passes over the mountain ridges. The sinking air compresses and dries out, and that lowers the relative humidity to the point that the clouds vanish. There may be some snow falling this morning up in TN and the Smokies and webcams show some snow in Gatlinburg. This is the Newfound Gap parking lot around 8:30 am Be sure to protect those sensitive plants as well as your pets over the next three days. Our lows will be dropping into the upper teens to the mid 20's across north Georgia, and that's cold any time of the year. Here are the forecast lows for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday Enjoy the cold weather for the next few days, I will take that any day over severe weather.

    May I say that all the news stations saying these Tornadoes happened โ€œWithout Warningโ€ are stupid... Many warnings were issued, many watches even before then, the SPC outlooks, and all the meteorologists like Steve provided AMAZING information about the weather and saved many lives. Yes it is horrible that 23, possibly more, died, but think of how high that number would be without the watches, warnings, and dedicated weather scientists. Steve, thank you for your amazing forecasts and all the daily posts you make to ensure the best possible warnings are sent out. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

    Good Wed - nes - day! ๐Ÿ™‚ Have you ever wondered how Wednesday sounds like Wensday? I mean really. Looking outside, (best way to tell what's going on ๐Ÿ˜œ ) I'm not seeing any sun this morning. Low clouds are moving across the area due to stationary boundary running along the Gulf of Mexico coastline that will have waves or disturbances riding along from west to east. And "light" precip is the correct adjective to use. This is the next 24 hour rainfall forecast. While the next 7 days looks like this For some reason, it's not letting me upload an animated GIF showing the temp anomalies for next week. I'll try to add it in a comment. Have a great day!

    Those dark areas in the image are coronal holes in the sun's atmosphere. From those holes come the solar winds. These coronal holes are larger when the sun is in a solar minimum, like the one we're headed into. And when the sun gets quiet, the sunspots go away. Right now we have a spotless sun. I have a page devoted to space weather, so if you're interested, please check it out! http://www.daculaweather.com/4_space.php Oh... and a page describing the various levels of space weather alerts http://www.daculaweather.com/4_space_warning_levels.php

    The cooler weather has slowed the pollination process and you are right when the temperatures get warm it will all come at once! I would almost bet that we set a pollen count record this season maybe on multiple days!

    They had a 2:07 pm update. Probably nothing to add of significance right now. The line has been weaker than thought but still needs to be watched. By the time it gets here though it looks like it's pretty broken and weak.

    Big clashes between extreme air masses. Some years the late winter/early spring is relatively warm with milder excursions of cooler weather. But when you get abnormally cold air running into above normal air... well... you saw what can happen.

    The thing is right now that is still a long lead time. Yes N AL and central TN look good as they have all winter with these post frontal setups like the Sunday-Monday wave will be. For most of us, that wonโ€™t cut it without some changes. What Iโ€™m interested in mainly is midweek, but the GFS and FV3 have both completely lost that storm so for now thereโ€™s nothing to do but wait.
