  1. Tornado in southern AL crossing into Georgia
  2. If it's going to ramp up for central Georgia, it better get busy, it's moving pretty quickly. Further south where you are may see some stronger storms. The orange STP highlights are only 1.0-1.9
  3. It will be even better tomorrow. 😉 I can't believe Gibb's Gardens is open Wed-Sun, we may go up there one of these next three days. 🙂 https://www.gibbsgardens.com/bloom-update/
  4. Final March pollen count. Today we are much lower than the past few days. This March is the 2nd worst (2012 had higher total count) and had the 2nd highest daily reading. #gawx #pollen atlantaallergy.com @atlantaallergy
  5. STP parameter is maximized around 4 PM for central and south Georgia.
  6. STP parameters are maximized as you get close to the center of the low. A Tornado Warning is in effect in that area right now.
  7. You can easily see the position of the surface low by the surface winds.
  8. Good morning! A cool wet day in store for today as an area of low pressure moves west to east across the southeast. Severe weather is possible but the majority of what may occur will remain to our south, and you can see the SPC outlook areas on this map. NWS Atlanta's thoughts And the Storm Prediction Center As you can see from the SPC maps, the primary severe threats will remain over south and central Georgia today. Sp maybe we can get some rain in here and wash away the pollen. It may not be a lot of rain, but the rain combined with cooler temperatures will work to drop the count both today and tomorrow. This is the rainfall through 8 AM Wednesday. As mentioned, today will be cooler than the past three days and most of north Georgia won't get out of the 50's, while behind the warm front in south Georgia temperatures rise into the 80's. I'll have the pollen count around 8:30 - 9:00 AM today and we'll see how that is going, but otherwise, let's get through today! Again... I'll have updates as necessary! Have a great day! I couldn't decide on a Tuesday song, so I'll share two, both old and both great.
  9. I like watching loops at faster speeds, it helps to visualize the movement better. When I look at loops on my southeast satellite page, I hit the Speed+ button about 8-9 times. http://www.daculaweather.com/4_sat_se_us.php
  10. Exactly. 🙂 And since that loop is looking at the moisture content in the atmosphere, it really is like an ocean.
  11. I was a little off on my count today but it is lower. 🙂 I got part of it right. We are over the hump. Now if we can get over the hump with the virus, we'll be doing great!
  12. Good morning! When the weather gets like this, I feel like I'm talking to myself here. Once winter is over, no one really cares too much about the weather until it messes with their outdoor plans. I get it. I suppose it's nice that we can go on about our lives without worrying too much about weather. We don't have much severe weather here, so that is one less thing to worry about, we are pretty far from the coast, so tropical systems are generally not much of a threat, we don't get blizzards or heavy snow that cripples that state (I know, all it takes to cripple us is one inch). Yes, we can get hot but we can also get cold (or we use to), and we can have flooding rains but we also have droughts. I'd say we're pretty blessed to have the weather we have. So if there is nothing to talk about, that's ok, that's the majority of our weather here anyway. And that is the case this morning. It looks like the southern Tennessee border is the wall holding the colder air to the north where they are in the 40's this morning while we bask in the upper 50's to 60's over Georgia. We're going to warm back up to the 70's today under party sunny skies, but we have a chance of rain returning for tomorrow. Here's the rainfall amounts through 8 AM Wednesday. There is a very brief window for severe weather Tuesday, but the worst of it will remain over south Georgia. We'll find out this morning if the pollen count has peaked or not. In looking at the data in my spreadsheet, we have never had 3 days in a row of really high readings, after two it begins to drop. So I think we'll drop back to the 4000-5000 range today, and then taper back down from there. The rain and cooler temperatures will also help to bring the count back to a breathable level. The colors in this spreadsheet easily show when the peak of the pollen season occurs here in Georgia. The leftmost column are the record peaks on that date, the middle column is the average count, the third column is the sum of all the years for that date, and the records go back to 1992. This year, our peak will be earlier than normal. That's about it. Nothing more to say. Hope everyone has a Blue Sky day! 🙂
  13. Good morning! We'll jump right in this morning. There is a line of severe weather approaching the state and should be entering the NW corner within the hour. Expect to see heavy rain, high winds, and hail with some of these storms. There is a Tornado Watch (actually 2) associated with this line of storms. A new watch is not anticipated right now but that doesn't preclude the chance for severe weather over north Georgia. Temperatures will be warm today and tomorrow, but a big cool down is coming. This is going to be a typical forecast for the week, your temps will vary some. I'll be keeping you updated this morning, so check back!
  14. Everything stopping is great for the environment, but changes to the climate which are long term, will not be seen because of it. There have been positive changes in terms of air pollution in many areas which is always good. I can't believe how disappointing the last several winters have been. I'm a snow lover so I'm never happy when we have a bad winter here in Georgia. 🙂 I would be happy with about 50-70" of snow a season. Maine is where I need to live. 😉
  15. Same here, I've been inside almost all day. I'd really like to get out in the sun a little bit!
  16. Good morning! A nice warm start to the day this morning! Even though we'll have more clouds than yesterday, temperatures should warm up nicely back into the 80's for many people this afternoon. The surface flow will turn around to the south and southwest today in advance of a cold front that will bring some rain for Sunday. High Temperatures for Saturday There will be a little rain on Sunday but nothing to write home about. Temperatures will be transitioning from well above normal to well below normal as the week goes on, by next weekend it will be a little chilly. Not much else to talk about this morning. There should be a pollen count today, so I'll post that when it updates. Normally they will have weekend updates during the worst of the pollen season (they updated last weekend). I was out in it yesterday and I feel it this morning. 😉 My guess is that it will be around the 7000+ mark today. This song you've at least heard (I hope 🙂). Most people know the England Dan and John Ford Coley version, but this is Dan by himself with an acoustic version that I think is MUCH better than the original. This is Dan Seals "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight" Have a joyful Saturday!
