  1. Good morning! I'm getting my smeller ready for all the great aromas today... πŸ™‚ Our exiting trough is zipping on out to sea this morning while our next weather maker is swinging down out of the Rockies, and that system is going to bring some heavy rain and colder air to north Georgia starting this weekend and into early next week. I think I'll let the NWS do the talking to start with... I know most of you don't want to know anything about the rain... so. Let's look at the ensemble mean for

  2. Good morning! We got some snow! Well... some of us got some snow, I hope everyone got to see some flakes flying if nothing else. I'm awaiting the first light of day to see some more pictures from everyone. πŸ™‚ The big closed upper level low is lifting out to the northeast this morning, taking the snow with it. I think that had this storm been another 100-200 mules further south, we might have had a big one. We want to see the ULL track to our south, not our north like this one. North gets us NW flow events just like the one we had. If they go south... or whole different ballgame. Notice an

  3. Good morning to all! A cold night has already given way to a warming trend this morning as my temps here have already risen several degrees since their low earlier in the morning. On the morning map (500 mb isobars and wind/temps) you can see our snow maker moving off to the northeast as it takes on a slight negative tilt. Over the southeast the red line indicates a little area of high pressure that will bring us some fair weather for a couple of days before the next system over the Rockies swings east bringing increased rain chances to our area. High pressure builds in far west behind th

  4. Good morning! It's Thanksgiving eve! πŸ¦ƒπŸ™‚ I'm ready for my turkey! πŸ™‚ But first things first, it's time for the weather! Our first closed upper level low is sitting over Kansas this morning and it has already started pulling in some very cold air back behind it. The map (500 mb isobars/850-700-500 mb winds/temps) shows those cold temps that are starting to pour into the country riding on strong northerly winds wrapping around the low. Although this first low is relatively weak and the energy with it will be pulling off to the northeast, I want to show a few characteristic

  5. Good morning! This morning we have some crazy eyed face on our map. Does anyone remember "Mr. Bill"? πŸ™‚ This morning, Mr. Bill's left eye upper level low (you are facing Mr. Bill) is our old snow maker that is being pulled back north for recycling, while our next weather maker for Friday (yellow mouth upper level low) is pushing our way. Mr. Bill's right eye is a large area of high pressure (ridge) over the western US. Here's the legend. πŸ™‚ It's hard to be too serious when the weather is nice. πŸ™‚ Pour me some more eggnog! I guess I better let the NWS do the

  6. Good morning! Our upper level low that was to our west yesterday, opened up and joined with another impulse rotating in the flow, and we now have a larger and stronger upper level trough. You can see the colder air wrapping around the base of the trough, and as the day goes on our winds will pick up and the cold air will come rushing in. So these are the thoughts from the NWS. Rain will mix with and change to snow across far north Georgia on Monday afternoon through Monday night. Any accumulating snow will be more likely at elevations above 2000 feet. Snow acc

  8. Good morning to all! Did anyone get any rain overnight? I had just a little but not really enough to wet the ground. The rain has pushed east and the rest of the day should be pretty nice. Changes are looming on the horizon and we should begin to see the effects from those changes beginning tomorrow in the form of rain and thunderstorms. Let's see what the NWS has to say about Sunday. The Storm Prediction Center doesn't think that any severe weather to worry about will reach this far north. Rainfall amounts through next Saturday are forecast

  9. Good morning! Enjoying this great weather? You get one more day of it before things begin to change. We've been locked into this zonal pattern for too long now, but the atmosphere is starting to get restless, and we'll start to see the start of those changes beginning this week. The morning map (850 mb winds and isobars/dewpoints/water vapor/radar) show moisture beginning to increase in advance of an area of low pressure. That low will drag a cold front across our area tonight and someone may see a shower, but probably not. That low is lifting northeast, and as it does it takes most of th

  10. Good morning! It's a little chilly out this morning but not as cold as they thought it would get, I think the winds kept the temperatures from falling as far as expected. But there are places in the mountains that are below freezing this morning, so there is some cold air around. Looks like Blairsville went below freezing shortly after midnight and is still below as of 6 am. I am keeping this short and sweet this morning since nothing has really changed since yesterday. I'll let the NWS do all the talking today, I'll just highlight what I find important

  11. Good morning! Hope everyone enjoyed the weather yesterday, because today is not going to be quite as nice. Rain is knocking on our doorstep this morning and it looks like most of the day will be rainy. On the morning map (500 mb winds and isobars/temps) you can see the upper level low that is pushing off to the northeast, and the area of rain that it is generating will continue moving our direction, and by later this evening the whole area will have pushed off to the east. Our rain chances today will be relatively light with 0.5"-1.5" of rain expected across north Georg

  12. 15th-20th shaping up to be our first real window at a region wide threat for the SE. Finally starting to see some 1030+ highs move across with those ULL's. Could be 2-3 storms in that window, we just need 1 to work out. Doesn't seem like too much to ask lol. But we know how things go around here. First things first, let's get the window itself inside 10 days to see if it's even real or just a mirage eternally hanging out at the end of the models.

  15. Good morning! Another relatively mild morning for late November, and today and tomorrow are going to be the last of the nice warm days for a while. Below normal temperatures and unsettled weather are going to be settling in, so get out and enjoy today and tomorrow if you can! On the morning map (500 mb isobars and winds/temps/water vapor) we can see an upper level trough rotating counter-clockwise over the Hudson Bay area, and the main axis of the trough is swinging to the NE. It's moving pretty quickly and because of that, it's leaving a piece of itself over the southwest US in the

  17. Good morning! Things are starting to get interesting folks... πŸ˜‰ Still a long way off in weather days but the GFS has been going all out for snow here. Boy, do I have a lot to show today... hope you have some time. πŸ™‚ FIRST... none of this is a forecast. We are tracking winter weather like you would follow a football game. You have good runs/bad runs just like you have good plays and bad plays. My team may do well (snow) or your team may do better (rain or nothing). We don't know the outcome until we get close to the end of the game. For all we know, it will be warm and sunny. F

  19. Good morning! Here we are 1/3 of the way through November and instead of cool crisp weather, we have warm moist tropical air and breezy winds just like you'd have at the beach. πŸ™‚ The temperatures are pretty evenly distributed this morning, maybe just little cooler up in the higher elevations, and that is probably due to the winds as much as anything. The red circles are stations that apparently have a pretty decent NE to east exposure for their weather station. It looks like I'm still recording the highest wind readings in the area and over the last three days the winds (wind run) have

  22. Why I like Snow- by Ricky Fall is over and most of the leaves have fallen. The southern winter has begun and soon the roads and fields are muddy as we get our winter rains. The trees are bare and it is gloomy many days with a definite knowledge of many days to go. The more days we experience like this the stronger we feel the need of a cleansing, a covering, a way to see the beauty we are missing every day in our lives. You see day in and day out time goes on and chance happens to all. Things will be what they will be But in the middle of all those things we cannot change, and they

  23. Very little, just occasional bursts of flurries really. Definitely won't even see a dusting unless we can score more of a shower at some point. Maybe the NW part of the county is fairing better.

  24. Keep in mind that the echo's from the radar will not be picking up the north over most of the mountains because the snow is falling from clouds that are below the radar beam.

  26. Pretty much a constant feature around here for winter events it seems. Even our gulf storms have that dreaded lee side low bubble. Thankfully in those scenarios we usually have enough elevation for it not to matter. But it really screws Stephens, Franklin, Hart, and Upstate SC a lot. But still, if anything like the NAM is showing happens I'd expect to see some scattered flurries break containment during the period of maximum forcing this evening into tonight. But of course it's the most aggressive of the models. Time will tell I guess.

  31. I like that the CMC and Euro were both still close to showing something on the northern fringes of the 2nd system. Wish ensembles looked better for that time frame, but hopefully it's just flat or suppression keeping things anemic and we can trend back to more favorable. I'm all in on whatever kind of flakes I can score on the back side Monday but I doubt I'll be breaking out a ruler unless the 2nd one comes back around.

  35. I am the wrong person to be quoting here because of my poor memory at age 60, but the pattern reminds me of 2014. I KNOW it could all disappear in the next couple of days but it has been a 'coons age' since we have seen that kind of consistency from any runs as far as a chance of snow in N Georgia. I amnot holding my breath, but I am hoping for my grandchildren there in Calhoun. I have a district Christmas function the 5th here at my Church, so unless the Lord sends some here like one run of the Canadian hinted I would just enjoy the picture or live through others posts.

  36. Good morning! The cold front has pushed through the area and brought cooler and drier air along with it. The morning map (500 mb winds and isobars/dewpoints/water vapor) shows the upper level trough to our north. The trough is responsible for the weather here this morning, but it will quickly slide off to the east and be replaced by a weak area of high pressure that is sitting to our west. Closer to home, you can see the surface winds bringing in the cooler air. These are dewpoints, not temperatures. Well, you saw the snow on the Euro yeste

  37. Yeah I'm having a hard time buying in to much outside of the pattern looks interesting. This is still well into fantasy land but the consistency of some mischief on multiple model runs in a row is interesting and it is getting a little ensemble love. No more Sky Valley reports this winter though, I am about the same elevation as you are now. We just built a house in Clayton. I'm going to miss the elevation but the not the 30 minute one way runs to the grocery store and work.

  38. That run was about as close to a bona-fide blizzard we'd ever see in these parts. 20-50 mph wind gusts. A wild solution, but not an impossible one that can be ruled out. One things for certain, given the consistency, the signal for this timeframe is real. Probably won't pan out in the end per usual, but this isn't just the models being crazy.

  40. Good morning! Well... the rain is over for a little while as Eta is moving out to sea and taking the moisture with it, so a little cooler and drier air is moving in to replace it. On the morning map (10m winds/temps/water vapor) you can see roughly where the cold front is located, and all of that orange coloring is drier air that is now filtering in to our area. Starting today, we're looking at 7 days of very nice weather, with the only fly in the ointment being Sunday with a VERY slight chance for a shower/drizzle across the northern areas as the next and more meaningf

  41. Good morning! I'm trying to figure out how to merge both the North Georgia Weather post along with this post each morning. Since I would end up duplicating a lot of the content between the two post, it really only makes sense to combine them together. I will do the "big picture" portion at the beginning and the Big Canoe section toward the bottom. That way if you don't live in Big Canoe, you don't have to read my drivel about our weather here, πŸ™‚ but the Big Canoe folks can read about the bigger picture if they want to. Does that sound like something that might work for everyone? It just t

  42. Good morning! Another windy night for some of us and those winds are still blowing this morning! At least the temperatures are nice, so at least that keeps the winds from feeling so chilly. πŸ™‚ One way meteorologist measure winds is by a measurement called "wind run". The definition is: "Wind run is a meteorological term used to categorize or determine the total distance (or amount) of the traveled wind over a period of time." I keep records of the wind run from my anemometer and yesterday was the highest wind run reading I've had since I moved the anemometer to the roof.

  43. Good morning! We are definitely starting to warm up this morning and you can see that on this mornings map. A surface high sits to our north and its clockwise rotation is pumping moisture into our area in conjunction with the counter-clockwise flow from Eta. Depending on the model, this is generally what the precipitable water values will look like. And really, the track is unknown at this point. Look at this mess of spaghetti. The official track goes to here and that is generally the consensus of the vari

  44. Good morning! Not much to talk about today as our weather across north Georgia is going to be like the last several days except warmer. We're seeing a slight increase in mid-level moisture and our temperatures will slowly rise over the next 4-5 days due to that increase. These are 850 mb winds or roughly 4800 feet and you can see the moisture being carried from the Gulf to the northeast. Eta is a disorganized area of thunderstorms right now and no one is really sure if it will get its act together so it can re-strengthen. So right now we're not going to pay any attentio
