  1. Good morning! The moisture has started its return and there are even a few very light showers around this morning, but most of the rain should hold off until the end of the day and into the overnight hours. You can see the return of moisture from Beta in this water vapor image from this morning. Cooler air is poised to drop toward the southeast just in time to start October. These are temperature anomalies through next Saturday. And these are the anticipated lows for each day. Each image in this loop is visible for two seconds.

  2. Good Saturday morning! Cloudy skies greet our day today, and those high clouds will probably hang around most if not all day long. I'll take it though! I'm loving these temperatures, and along with the clouds, it really feels like fall! πŸ™‚ And the reason for the clouds... These are the highs/high anomalies for the next 6 days And these are the lows/low anomalies... Precipitation is going to be non-existent until the very end of the period. There will not be much local weather to

  5. Good morning! Yesterday wasn't too bad for the last day of August, and as far as I'm concerned, it's only going to get better. πŸ™‚ Today won't be a bad day, there will be a 30%-40% chance of a shower and it will be warm, but still pretty typical for this time of the year. Looking at the bigger picture this morning, we see a MCS out over Missouri and Arkansas and that will be moving our direction today. Whether or not it makes it intact for the whole trip is to be seen. The Atlanta NWS did not talk about it in their morning discussion but Birmingham did. NWS Atlanta

  6. Good morning! Laura continues her journey across the southeast this morning and her counter-clockwise rotation continues to pump thick Gulf moisture across Georgia. This morning we have a nice thunderstorm around White and Towns counties and scattered showers elsewhere. This coverage will continue to expand as the day goes on. Looking at the Columbus AFB radar in MS, you can see several areas of showers and thunderstorms. One over Alabama embedded in the comma tail of Laura, and further west over Memphis where the core of Laura is still located.

  7. Good morning! Fall begins this morning around 9:30 am although it has felt like fall for the past 3-4 days now. πŸ™‚ The morning map shows cool fall like temperatures across much of the country except for the far southwest around AZ/CA, the Florida peninsula, and along the Gulf coastline. Tropical Depression Beta is bringing some rain inland to LA and AR and that system and the rain will be moving our general direction over the next several days. The track of Beta will lead to an increase in our rain chances as we move through the end of the week. Right now though, we are b

  8. Good morning! After the rain ended, the day didn't turn out too bad yesterday. Did you get enough rain? The morning map (infrared/temps/MSLP/surface and 850 mb winds) shows Sally moving off to the northeast while we have a nice breeze out of that same direction. Today will be the warmest of the next 5 or 6 as a cold front will be bringing our first taste of fall starting tomorrow. Speaking of that fly... say hello to #22. What will actually happen to 22 no one really knows right now. You can see from the map, 22 appea

  10. Good morning! Hurricane Sally is making her way to the coast, but the winds this morning have dropped to 85 mph, so she has weakened overnight. But being the slow mover that she is (you know... "waitin' on a women" πŸ™‚ ), she will dump a LOT of rain once she comes ashore. Our focus now is on the potential for heavy rain across north Georgia. The axis of the heaviest rain has been slowly shifting south as the future track of Sally has done the same. The latest WPC forecast has shrunk the heaviest rain just a little bit from the previous run. This is the

I know I have sounded like a broken record (everyone DOES know what a record is don't they? πŸ˜› ) with all of these nice fall like days that we've had, and today will be one more day of the same weather, but it starts to change late today and into tomorrow. This morning, those of us in or near the mountains are feeling a nice cool breeze. We've had the windows open for the last three days and this morning inside the house it was a chilly 66 degrees! Gotta love it! But, all things must come to and end, and so goes this weather. If yo

  14. Good morning! I told you it was going to feel like fall! Isn't this weather great? Two more days of the same weather before things begin to change. Look at these great temps. Mid 60's to mid 50's are the rule this morning, and with those lower dewpoints, it certainly feels like fall. For today and tomorrow, we'll have some very benign weather. So there isn't much to talk about for the next several days, but looking just a little further into next week, there could be some very active weather for us here in Georgia. Speaking of a strong cold

  15. Good morning! We're going to keep this short and sweet today since there isn't much going on today or tomorrow. We will be under the influence of the Atlantic high and that will bring some drier air to our region. So almost no chance for rain and warmer than normal temps. This mornings map (water vapor/500 mb winds/dewpoints) shows a little drier air to our south and a MCS over Texas, but everyone is soaking in the rich dewpoints right now. Highs today and tomorrow look like this But the heat doesn't last for long and by Sunday we are bac

  16. Good morning! Yesterday turned out to be pretty nice after all the clouds and fog burned off. Today is also going to start off cloudy, but we are going to see more rain from them than we did yesterday. We have scattered showers around the north Georgia area right now, but a more concentrated area is further south and moving our way and we should see that later today. Here are the thoughts from the Atlanta NWS office WPC Excessive Rainfall Day 1 Outlook and Discussion Speaking of precipitable water values... this is the 10 day Euro PW ou

  17. Good morning! Got wind? It's been really windy here overnight and it's probably going to get a little worse before it gets better. But man... it FEELS like FALL this morning. ☺️ I'm in the upper 50's right now with 15-20 mph winds and it's COOL! Sally is making landfall as I type. My sister is staying down at Navarre Beach in Florida She's the red dot. They are 14 stories up so there has to be a little swaying going on. πŸ™‚ I was checking on the 925 mb winds from Sally and it is a little concerning for the higher elevations.

  18. Good morning! We had a beautiful day yesterday and today will be much of the same. Consider them bonus days. πŸ™‚ This mornings map (Infrared/surface winds/temps) show Sally in the Gulf and she looks like she has cleaned up her act. You can see the official NHC track for Sally and it brings it right over Georgia on Friday. Heavy rain is going to be a major impact for north Georgia, and the final track will determine where the heaviest rain will fall. The models are still trying to get that narrowed down, so those specific details will have to wait, but for now, these are

  19. Good morning! Did you get any rain yesterday? We had a nice tropical rain here yesterday afternoon and that's the first rain I've had in 10 days. Today should be more of the same with maybe a few more showers than yesterday. The morning map (500 mb isobars and wind/temps/water vapor) shows that cutoff low hanging out over Colorado and not far from where it was this time yesterday. To the east you can see the warmer temperatures and down near the southeast coast of Florida, you see one of the tropical disturbances. That system will move west and into the Gulf over the next day or so.

  20. Good morning! Not a bad day yesterday, rain free and relatively cool... I'll take it! I think we're going to have one more day like yesterday before we see any rain across the northern third of the state. On this mornings map (500 mb isobars/temps/water vapor) you can see the two contour upper level low over the four corners region that has brought the cold and snow to the Rockies. That low will weaken and lift off to the northeast toward the Great Lakes later today. Since there is a lot going on, or will be going on, let's go ahead and take a look. Friday night through

  21. Good morning! Man, it is windy this morning! πŸ™‚ The wind has been moving along pretty quickly at 1960 feet and will continue that way through tomorrow before relaxing. The winds are due to high pressure nosing down the east side of the Appalachian's (almost like a wedge/CAD) and a trough off the east coast. That combination will be sending Atlantic moisture our direction starting today, and by Thursday we'll be back in the soup once again. The morning map is just temperatures and radar today. You can see that colder air across the central part of the country and the Rockies while the

  22. Good morning! I hope everyone is enjoying this great Labor Day weekend! I don't think we could have asked for better weather. We have a weak high pressure to our west and a trough off the east coast this morning. We've had our windows open since early morning yesterday and it's been awesome! I love free air conditioning! πŸ™‚ We have a lot of tropical activity right now but nothing that seems to impact the US. There are some new waves exiting the African coastline and several new numbered disturbances. The peak of the hurricane season is September 10th.

I felt like Leonardo DiCaprio standing on the bow of the Titanic. πŸ™‚ This morning's weather map (300 mb isobar (purple line), 700 mb (green line), surface winds, dewpoint's, water vapor) shows that we are stuck under the influence of the sub-tropical high to our east out over the Atlantic, and those higher pressures extend down to the mid-levels over middle to southern Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi. There is a moisture fe

  24. Good morning! Mostly clear skies as we start this morning, and it should pretty much stay that way for the rest of the day. We are under the influence of that area of high pressure you see off the coast of Georgia, and that will help to keep the skies generally clear and the temperatures warm for today and tomorrow. This morning map (300 mb isobars, 500 mb winds, water vapor, temps) shows the high off the coast and a trough to our north. I love seeing those cooler temps to the north because it's only a matter of time before those start showing up here, and I can't wait. πŸ™‚ The high pressur

I am so mad that my time lapse didn't work because the storms would have been beautiful (they WERE beautiful to watch) to watch. I hate it when a computer crashes. Oh well... This is the radar estimated rainfall for yesterday and overnight. On the morning map (500 mb isobars/water vapor satellite/temps) you can see high pressure over Mexico keeping that part of the country hot, even during the early morning hours. Meanwhile, further north, you can see signs that fall is coming... t

Unfortunately, she doesn't read these so she'll never see it! πŸ™‚ I guess I feed her enough weather so she doesn't have to, she probably has weather overload all the time. πŸ™‚ Of course the big story is Hurricane Laura. Laura now has winds of 110 mph and is expected to be a CAT 4 hurricane later today. Here is an early morning IR view of Laura as she churns her way across the Gulf for an eventual landfall on the TX/LA border. Laura is a very large storm and the winds extent out for large distances.

  33. Steve - the lack of rain over the past eight days should help a bit, right? I was living in NY for Andrea in 2013, it poured five inches in a day, in a combination of steady drizzle and periodic intense bands, and that was all fine. The break between the bands provided time for drainage to happen, except for (as you noted) low lying areas that are always flood prone. We had a few focused storms here over the summer that pummeled my area in a brief timeframe; I think as long as the intensity remains below that and gives everyone breaks between the bands to drain out, seven inches over a

  36. Good morning! Looks like most people had a little rain yesterday and there is more on the way! Overnight Sally has increased in intensity slightly and is continuing its trek across the Gulf. As you can see from this image, Sally is expected to make landfall as a CAT2 hurricane over Louisiana on Thursday and then continue its recurve over our area as a tropical depression. We still have plenty of tropical moisture over the area this morning but in this precipitable water image from the NAM 3km, you can see a drier patch over central Georgia, and that drier air was part

  39. It is hard to believe the climate difference between Calhoun and Metter. But with Calhoun in the Nw part of the state and Metter in the Se it really makes a huge difference. Metter is almost Central Ga but we def are influenced by the Gulf and Atlantic. We are on the trailing end of every cold front and it makes a huge difference, especially early in the fall.

  40. Good morning! After a great day yesterday, today may not turn out as favorable. It previously looked like that today would be a pretty nice day, and for the most part it should be, but there are showers knocking on the GA border and those are part of a larger area of showers and thunderstorms associated with a shortwave passing to our north and I suspect parts of north Georgia may see some rain from it. You can see that area of enhanced moisture on the morning map. The wind arrows are at 850 mb or ~ 4800 feet and show that there are only weak winds across the SE this mor

  41. Good morning! Did you get some showers yesterday? If not, you may not get any today either. We are drying out a little bit for two reasons. Once, the Atlantic high is building in a little and two, Laura creates sinking air around her periphery which increases the temperature and dries out the air. The moisture will return once Laura gains some latitude and makes a right hand turn. As Laura passes to our north, there will be a chance for some higher wind gust across the north Georgia mountains. Here are a few samples of wind gust from projections.
