SHORT TERM /Today through Wednesday/...
A dry cold front will cross the area early this morning giving way to a slightly cooler airmass. Highs temps around 70 across the higher elevations to the low 80s south of Columbus. Easterly winds may become gusty as the front pushes further south with high pressure building in from the NE. The gradient should relax by later in the afternoon. High clouds associated with the front will taper by the evening hours with clear and calm conditions expected overnight. This will allow low temps to drop into the mid/upper 40s across much of northern GA, around 50 across central GA.
A pleasant Wednesday can be expected with a weak wedge pattern keeping temperatures similar to Tuesday, a bit above normal. Clouds will begin to filter into the region from the west later Wednesday ahead of the next front.
LONG TERM /Wednesday Night through Monday/...
The long term period begins with a strong shortwave extending from the Ohio valley through the Tennessee and Mid Mississippi river valleys. Surface reflection in the form of a weak low will be well north of the area moving from Indiana through Ohio. As we progress through 09Z Thu...a pre frontal activity will move into NW GA and a little deeper moisture and stronger lift indicate that pops may need to be raised with subsequent forecasts if these model trends continue. For now though...low to mid range scattered pops will suffice for the extreme northern portions. Forcing abates quickly as is often the case with these type of systems and 20 to 30 percent coverage is likely the extent of the activity from the southern Atlanta metro and points south.
There continues to be a healthy amount of CAPE advertised by the models especially of the most unstable variety. Not sure how much surface based we will actually get but seeing enough to warrant inclusion of isolated thunder in the grids...primarily along and north I85.
Unfortunately...no relief in sight for the worsening drought conditions and have a pop free forecast in the post frontal environment. Temps will also remain above normal through the period with several 80 degree days in store for the area.
