.SHORT TERM /Today through Sunday/...

High pressure over the area will keep mostly clear to partly cloudy
skies with high temps in the 60s across the area in the short term.
Will see mainly clear skies today as the ridge is at its strongest
right now but this ridge does begin to breakdown tonight. This will
allow increased moisture return from the Atlantic as a weak wave
begins to develop along the GA/SC coast Sunday afternoon. The models
are not showing much development with this wave and it eventually
gets caught in the upper level zonal flow Sunday night/Monday
morning and gets pushes eastward out to sea. Moisture from this wave
will bring increased clouds to the state Sunday before it moves out.
Low temps tonight expected in the 30s and 40s but with the increased
cloud cover Sunday low temps Sunday night should be mainly in the
40s.

.LONG TERM /Sunday Night through Friday/...

At the beginning of the long term...a frontal boundary will be
approaching northwest GA. The front will cross the state through
Tuesday. Over the past few days...models have been showing
diminishing moisture as the front pushed across GA. This run of
the models showing enough moisture to have a mention of a slight
chance of showers far north on Monday. GFS hints that the showers
may linger into Monday night...but not including pops at this
time. Looks dry again until Friday. By that time...a southern
stream short wave moving along the Gulf Coast should move to the
Atlantic Coast. GFS and ECMWF have different versions of the
location of the low...but the overall effect for our area would be
easterly flow and increasing Atlantic moisture. So...have
introduced pops across much of the area on Friday.
