    • Almost no moisture anywhere in the US today.
    • Good morning! A little bit of a change this morning compared to yesterday! Much cooler and drier air has moved in to Georgia in the wake of Zeta, and it was carried in by some stiff winds last night. Those northwest winds will remain brisk today as they continue to bring additional cold air to our area. The morning map (500 mb isobars and winds/temps) shows the NW flow from the upper level trough.      Here's what the lows are expected to look like on Monday and Tuesday. This is the official NWS forecast. Make plans for those pets and sensitive plants.     The temperature anomalies from the major models look like this. These are 5 day averages so this anomaly goes through next Wednesday.   Right now there is no rain in the 7 day forecast, so we'll get a change to dry out and clean up.  I hope everyone enjoys this great start to a fall weekend!
    • Sorry, I missed all the last few post. Yes, the cold front was bringing some brisk winds along with it, but that is all it is. 
    • Finally have cell service at my house now. Nothing else is back, but it's nice just to not feel cutoff from the outside world again. This cold front is definitely pretty gusty tonight along with a bit more light rain.  I've now come to understand that the main high voltage transmission lines that deliver power to the substations here in the county went down, explaining the extensiveness of the outage. The regular crews don't touch these, so they had to wait for specialized crew and equipment to be able to fix things. My power has just cut back on literally as I was typing this, so hats off to Georgia Power and HEMC on what couldn't have been an easy job.
