    Good morning! Well.... yesterday turned out to be a pretty miserable day and today won't be much better! The tropical depression has weakened and our flow had turned from the east to the south for today and that means a continued warm moist flow over our area. As was mentioned in the discussion, temperatures today will rise into the 80's for many people, with the exceptions being in the higher elevations of the mountains where those folks will see upper 70's. Now that I'm in the mountains (or close enough), I've had a chance to better observe how the elevation helps to dictate what the weather is going to do here. We face east and yesterday we had clouds that looked like this. The low clouds started forming about 8-10 miles out and that line stayed in roughly the same place all day long even though the clouds were moving toward us from that same direction. At one point they pushed right up to the house but then retreated. But you can see how it's much lighter beyond that line. Those clouds start forming as the air was lifted and cooled as it flowed up and over the higher elevations. In this image you can roughly see where those higher elevations are, I'm the white dot. In this case, you can see how the temperatures are affected by the elevation as well. Once the rain leaves us on Friday, some very nice weather will replace it and we'll be looking at lower dewpoints to go along with the relatively cool temperatures. Here are the expected high temperatures for the next 7 days. temps week june.mp4 That's about it for now! I'll keep an eye on the weather today in case there is anything you need to be aware of, but I don't think we'll see much more than some thunderstorms later this afternoon. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!

    Good morning! Finally!!!! I have enough internet to start back up with the morning post. i still don't have everything working, but hopefully by the end of the week, I'll have everything back at 100%. Things move a little slower in the mountains. πŸ™‚ We have a nice moist flow off the Atlantic at the surface and even higher up in the atmosphere (this shows ~5000 feet) this morning, and that flow is pushing some light showers/foggy/dreary conditions into the area. Our easterly flow is partially due to the tropical system that is bringing Florida some beneficial rainfall, and that low is expected to move north and likely increase our chances for rain. Nothing big is expected from this system as the upper level winds are not conducive for development, so for us, cooler temps and rain is our threat. I know you just LOVE all the rain. πŸ˜› In case you haven't heard this seasons tropical outlook, here is what Weatherbell believes will happen this year There are many similarities to some notable hyperactive seasons. A warm Atlantic Basin is already in place and no El NiΓ±o is expected. Weighting analogs points at highly active seasons. New Euro seasonal shows favorable MJO precipitation pattern for enhanced activity around North America. Euro ACE still under average but highest of last 4 years Our expectations of a big-ticket season have not changed from our March 10 outlook. We had a line of showers and thunderstorms push through yesterday, and since they were approaching from the southeast, I had a great view watching them move toward us. Since I don't have any webcams hooked up yet, I whipped out the trusty GoPro and captured a 4K wide angle time lapse of the approaching storms. Speaking of webcams... here's a new one I purchased just for your viewing pleasure. πŸ™‚ Can't wait to get this bad boy installed. πŸ™‚ So far we've seen a fox and several deer down below us in the yard. I want to install a camera down low that has infrared so I can capture the wildlife at night. πŸ™‚ We still have a lot going on with unpacking and getting things setup here, while still getting rid of stuff and cleaning up the old house so we can sell it, but I should have regular morning post from here on out barring any unforeseen issues. Enjoy the cool weather even if it does bring rain... summer is not far off and the heat will be returning. πŸ™‚ Have a great day!

    Good Friday morning! We made it another week! The first half of yesterday was pretty nasty but the last half turned out great. There were a few thunderstorms around during the late afternoon/early evening hours and that will be the case for today as well. But after this evening, north Georgia should start to clear out and pretty much stay that way through at least Thursday of next week. There will be a gradual warming trend through the end of next week, and some parts of the metro Atlanta area may climb into the 90's before all is said and done. We are starting out warm this morning across the southeast and some areas around the metro Atlanta area haven't dropped out of the 70's yet. Warm mornings generally mean warm days and today will be no exception, these are the forecast highs. But if you think these are hot, look at what it may be next Friday. Ahhhh.... the joys of summer. 😜 Oh... and here is another one. No rain. What you see on this 7 days rainfall forecast map all occurs before 8 AM tomorrow, otherwise, dry as a bone. I'm still keeping an eye on the Gulf of Mexico for a potential tropical system next week. We'll see how this progresses and where it may want to go. This loop shows the probabilities of a tropical depression. gulf trouble.mp4 So right now we will have your general run of the mill summertime weather with nothing exciting going on. I suppose that's always a good thing but it leaves me with nothing to talk about. πŸ™‚ This was pretty much the view that we had for most of the day yesterday, hopefully today will be nicer. 😎 I hope everyone has a great Friday and an awesome start to the weekend, get out and enjoy the great weather! 🌞

    In all my years working in and around Jasper and Bent Tree and Big Canoe if it was going to rain it would be there if it was going to be overcast it would be there, was so odd to me that 20 min north it was fine and 20 min south it was fine, always wondered why that was, obviously it’s location has everything to do with that but maybe the rise there or something it will be interesting what you make of it living there.

    I'll try to win the lottery (only way I could afford to live in Big Canoe which if I recall is a gated community) and move next door so I can have the latest weather info!

    Good morning! More cloudy and dreary skies this morning, but by the afternoon we should clear out some and see a little blue sky much like yesterday. The arrows in this image show surface winds and you can see those pushing down the east side of the Appalachian's into north Georgia. Here's an infrared view of the same area. Notice a push of moisture coming in from the northeast and also notice the low sitting off the coast which is helping to contribute to our winds and clouds. Although it might seem like we've had a lot of rain, many parts of north Georgia have been below normal over the last 7 day period. 7 Day Accumulated Precipitation 7 Day Precipitation Anomaly in Inches Here are your hourly temperatures through 2 PM Saturday. And here is the 7 day precipitation forecast from the Weather Prediction Center (WPC). You can see that the bulk of the rain stays to our west and east. Otherwise, not a lot going on, just your typical summer like weather pattern. Here's a picture I took the other day when we had some rain going on. There were lots of the steam plumes rising up from below but the camera doesn't do them justice. I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!
