Atlanta Weather | Nice Weekend Coming

Atlanta Weather | Nice Weekend Coming

We are starting off the day with sunny skies, but the clouds will increase this afternoon. A cold front north of the area will move south this afternoon. Ahead of the front, isolated showers and thunderstorms will pop up. Our southern most counties will have a better chance to see the rain.

The good news with the front is that it will bring drier air into our region. We will watch on Saturday to see how far south the front will sink. We will keep a slight chance for thunderstorms in the forecast Saturday afternoon. The same front will continue to move into the south and far enough away that we should see mostly sunny skies on Sunday.
Look for the dry weather to remain in the forecast through Thursday of next week.

Amazing Video of Louisiana Sinkhole Swallowing Trees!!!

This is downright scary!! Watch as what is known as "Assumption Parish Sinkhole" just gobbles up parts of the swamp and takes it to who knows whrere!! The sinkhole opened up last August and has been expanding ever since!!! WILD!!

Incredible Volcanic Lightning

Incredible Volcanic Lightning

In a small town in Chile back in 2008, the volcano known as Chaiten erupted creating a massive smoke and ash plume. The plume could be seen from space on satellite and could be seen for nearly 100 miles on the ground. That night as the sun went down and the massive eruption continued a fascinating thing happened!

The eruption was so violent, and the smoke and ash cloud was so huge that all the ash and smoked started creating internal friction. Just like in a thunderstorm we have around here in the summer when hail hits other hailstones and rain friction is built inside the storm. This storm happened to be a massive plume of volcanic ash, but the same exact same thing happened with all the ash and smoke. Friction happened!! Once the charge got big enough, lightning was released!! Yes, volcanic lightning that was happening at an amazing rate per minute!!! Below are some more images from this very rare and amazing event.

Atlanta Weather | Thursday Forecast

The summer of weird weather continues as we head into the weekend. After a few days of EXTREME humidity and t-storms it appears that things will be changing as we slide through Saturday and Sunday.

Big Changes Coming This Weekend!!

Big Changes Coming This Weekend!!

The summer of weird weather continues as we head into the weekend. After a few days of EXTREME humidity and t-storms it appears that things will be changing as we slide through Saturday and Sunday.

A strong cold front for this time of year will be moving in from the NE and will fire off some showers and a few t-storms on Friday, then on Saturday things will begin to change. Our winds will start to come out of the NE and we will see a bit of a wedge try to build in. The major component lacking to a full blown wedge like we had last weekend will be an area of low pressure to the SW, so as the drier air starts to sneak in here by late Saturday afternoon it will just give us some more sunshine for Sunday!! For the most part I am expecting Saturday to be partly cloudy with a few t-storms, mainly south and west of the metro area!!

Atlanta Weather | Rare Blue Moon

Atlanta Weather | Rare Blue Moon
With a few breaks in the clouds, some of us got a chance to see a rare “Blue Moon.” Not because it is the second full moon this month, but actually gets its name from a relatively obscure rule of astronomy. And there are a few other details about the full moon that might surprise you. So to celebrate the Blue Moon, here are five amazing facts about this month's full moon: 1) It's not really blue: Okay, so not really a newsflash, but the Blue Moon's name actually has nothing to do with color. Occasionally, the full moon can take on a reddish pallor, but today's full moon is not related to the actual color of Earth's cosmic neighbor. The moon can appear blue in color if a forest fire or volcanic eruption litters the upper atmosphere with ash or smoke.
