  1. Good morning! A relatively dry day yesterday and probably more of the same for today, as we're stuck on the downslope side of a high pressure. There are some waves moving through the flow and it's possible to see some action from that... but maybe not today. In this video loop, you can see a MCS over Illinois that is slowly moving our direction, but it's only a trick! 🙂 The models are showing that one dissipating but another following behind "may" bring a better chance for rain Monday. wv-8-9.mp4 These are the thoughts from NWS Atlanta Birmingham NWS also mentions the MCS in their morning discussion Here's the simulated radar from the NAM 3 km and you can watch the first MCS fall apart as it approaches, but a second wave follows on the heels of the first one. The Euro even shows the 2nd wave dropping to the GA coast and turning into an area of low pressure before lifting off to the NE. This is a 850 vorticity loop from the Euro and you can see the low form off the coast. For today, our highs will look like this. There's not much else to talk about right now, it's just going to be summer. 🙂 It is called the doldrums for a reason. 🙂 Hope everyone has a great Sunday!
  2. Good morning! Yea... running late but you aren't missing anything. To quote a famous quote by Yogi Berra "It's deja vu all over again". 🙂 I have to zoom way out to find any weather this morning. Drier air has filtered over north Georgia and there isn't a cloud in sight. There is still a slight chance for rain today, but mostly over central Georgia. And of course that means hot and we're going to stay that way through the end of next week. Highs today look like this and they cool off to look like the 2nd image by next Friday. At least that's the plan for now. Precip over the next 7 days looks like this. Otherwise... nada. I did grab this from Mr Ventrice this morning... So there. 🙂 I hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday!
  3. With the clouds this morning, I'm still at 70 degrees. With the breeze it feels great!
  4. We are starting to get a little dry, and why I was hoping to see some rain from Isaias. I have a whole page of drought information here: http://www.daculaweather.com/4_drought_state.php
  5. Good morning! Nothing to talk about today, just more of the same summertime weather. Since there is nothing to talk about, there is no need to show you the surface map this morning. Instead, let's look at our precip and temps and how we've done so far this year and this month. First temps. We have been doing MUCH better than last year. These are the average temperatures since January 1. Don't forget, we had a HOT winter and January, February, and March were above normal. So we're just a couple of degrees over right now despite that. Once April rolled around, temperatures dropped compared to normal over a large part of the US. APRIL MAY JUNE So far for this month (through the 5th) we look like this. Our high temp anomalies look like this... And our low temp anomalies look like this. In this case, both the highs and lows are almost identical. Our rainfall anomalies are running above normal since January 1. The last 7 days have kept the bulk of the rain to the east and northeast portions of the state. And that is also reflected in the anomalies. As far as our current weather goes, expect the regular summertime temperatures and afternoon showers. Rainfall over the next 7 days will tend to fall in places where it has been falling, but everyone should see some. I picked three area in north Georgia for temps, Blairsville, Athens, and Dalton. That's it! Hope everyone has a great start to the weekend! 🙂
  6. Good morning! Don't know about you, but I have some very breezy conditions here at the house this morning and it feels great! The last time I looked I was around 69 degrees, so throw in the breezy winds with cloudy skies and it's cool out there! 🙂 Cheap thrills! It doesn't take much for me! 🙂 Our weather today and tomorrow will be pretty much like the last several.... Our temperatures for the weekend will increase while the chances for those afternoon and evening thunderstorms decrease. Don't worry, the rain chances go back up to start the work week. 🙂 Highs today look like this While the highs for the weekend and most of next week look like this. So... nothing new under the sun. 😇 Hope everyone has a great Thursday!
  7. I'd love for that to happen here. 🙂 The other morning we had rain for 5-6 hours it seems like, it was awesome! 🙂
  8. Good morning! We managed to pick up some nice storms yesterday! Here's a picture of a thunderstorm over Commerce right before sunset, and that storm is 45 miles away from me. It looks closer in person than it does in this picture. I had another nice thunderstorm pass to my east, this image is looking toward Dahlonega. Today and tomorrow will be like yesterday, so nothing new for a few days. I suppose you heard about the damage from a thunderstorm on Lake Lanier the other day, and it was determined that a microburst was the culprit. I didn't know if you had seen this video that this person took. I Tweeted three images to the NWS. These are the images. Each image was 5 minutes apart and is a 3D volumetric scan and the purple generally indicates hail. 2:27 PM 2:33 PM 2:39 PM Certainly evidence that over a 15-20 minute span, that core emptied itself completely. Microburst create tremendous downdraft winds that can reach tornado strength over a large area. When the core collapses, the rain/hail combination creates the high winds and once the column mass approaches the ground, the winds spread out radially in all directions. That's it for today! Expect the afternoon and evening thunderstorms to continue for the foreseeable future. As long as we can keep the heat away... I'm good! Have a great Wednesday!
  9. Good morning! Did you get enough rain yesterday? I know some had more than others and some had some wind and hail damage. If you had any damage, please share some pictures! This morning Isaias is moving quickly up the coast and generating a lot of quick spin up tornadoes as it goes. Behind Isaias, a trough is pushing across the midwest and impulses in the flow will bring another chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms today, although the coverage will not be as great or intense as yesterday. Here's a look at the radar estimated rainfall from yesterday. Looking ahead... Here's a look at the precipitable water values for the next 10 days. Notice we dry out a little bit today through Thursday, but the moisture returns just in time for the weekend. High temperatures for today As you can see, we're back in summertime mode for weather. I'll tell you what though... I REALLY enjoyed the clouds and rain yesterday morning. It was breezy and cool with thunder and rain, and it was a nice change from the sunny hot mornings we've had lately. I hope everyone has a GREAT Tuesday!
  10. Rainfall so far look like this for the heaviest amounts.
  11. LOL!!!!! There is no telling! If you had clicked on that top link in the image, you could have seen a high def view! 🙂 I can't even tell you if that's me, my wife, or one of the "Little People" that live in the woods up here. LOL!
