Monitoring Storm Potential Midweek | News
What a great day! We saw those clouds from this morning gradually break up during the day. The sun was first able to filter through some high thin clouds, then those clouds moved out setting up a nice sunset. Have you noticed the sun is setting a little later now? Sunset tonight is at 6:03. If any cirrus clouds were still lingering, we would have seen a lot of color on the horizon. Most of the high clouds are gone now, so look for a nice clear sunset!
We will have a few more clouds build in on Sunday to give us a mix of sun and clouds. We will have more clouds early, then clouds gradually build in during the afternoon. An east wind will keep the clouds with us off and on for the next few days.
We have been watching a pretty vigorous system the past few days that still looks to hit us on Wednesday. The models have been pretty consistent in developing this and moving it our way. Temperatures ahead of it will be very spring like. Temps behind it are much colder. This could be similar to a spring-like storm set up. The Storm Prediction Center is watching a big part of the southeast for the potential for severe thunderstorms. The map from the SPC shows the "outlooked" areas for a severe weather threat. The area in red that says "D4" stands for day 4 which is Tuesday. The purple polygon that says "D5" represents the risk on Wednesday. Right now, NW Georgia is in that risk area. I expect that polygon to be extended eastward to include more of Georgia.
This is a developing system. We will monitor all of the changes over the next few days that could affect the strength and the timing. More later.
