Good morning!

If you live in the mountains, you may notice it's a little breezier than normal this morning. 🙂 Nothing too bad but it sure feels and sounds nice. There are some light showers around the mountains do to lift from the remnants of Laura pass to our north.



Laura has been absorbed into a larger trough and will be moving out over the Atlantic later today and tonight.  Notice the wave back over Nebraska and Kansas (see orange highlight in text below)



Scattered showers mainly moving through north Georgia this morning will continue through the late morning hours as the surface trough pushes southeast across the forecast area area, stalling and lingering over central to south Georgia through Sunday. As the surface boundary sags southward, the surface gradient will relax with wind gusts diminishing to 5-10 mph. The boundary will act as a focus for convection in the form of showers and thunderstorms to develop with the aid of good tropical moisture across the area. PWAT's will remain near 2 inches across the area through Sunday.  With good cloud cover expected this morning and again tomorrow morning, temperatures will remain near normal.

Another short wave is expected to cross the OH/TN Valley area Sunday night into Monday. Pops increasing into the likely category during this time frame look reasonable. After this... a trough deepens in the southern Plains and lingers through much of the upcoming week. We remain in essentially a moist west to southwest flow with mostly chance pops during the day and slight chance or low chance pops at night. GFS/ECMWF models indicate that a front may be approaching north GA at the end of the week as a broad trough deepens over the Great Lakes. Models at this point diverge on the surface features...but looks like there will still be at least a chance for showers and thunderstorms on Friday.


It still looks like we take a step down for our temperatures after Friday, and a sample of the potential temps from the Euro ensemble. 




Here's a look at the Euro and GFS deterministic models and potential upcoming temperature anomalies as we head into September.



The GFS shows a little cooler air than the Euro. It sure is nice seeing below normal temperature anomalies. 🙂 I see fall. 



So a chance for rain this morning, tapering off later today. Sunday will be drier with a slight chance of afternoon showers, and then Monday wetter with a good chance. The remainder of the week will have a 30%-50% chance of rain. Because of the cloud cover and showers, temperatures will remain close to normal.

Hope everyone has a GREAT Saturday!

Thanks for sharing this touching story!! Love it!

That really is very sweet. I wonder if he got a chance to meet the family after that!

On topic, it appears Laura's only impact on my area is a very pleasant breeze, which I'll take and gladly!

All I had here were breezy conditions for a while. I did have rain, clouds, and fog for a good part of the day.

I note that there's a line of thunderstorms ambling in our general direction from TN, Steve. Our forecast does not mention rain at all, so I assume we're expecting those to fizzle before they reach us?
