Midweek Severe Weather Threat | News
Everything is still coming together for a potential severe weather day on Wednesday. Our earlier blogs have been talking about this threat for the past few days. Each day, we are able to gain a little more confidence on what to expect. We will continue to fine tune the forecast over the next few days. We will be able to gain more info on the intensity and better timing as we get closer.
As I mentioned yesterday, I was expecting the risk area from the Storm Prediction Center to move more to the east to affect more of our viewing area. Yesterday, the risk area only included parts of west and northwest Georgia. Now, the SPC is moving that polygon more to the east to include all of north Georgia and metro Atlanta. You can see the red polygon on the map. It says "D4" because that stands for "day 4" on their convective outlook.
We will be monitoring the available moisture, instability and shear over the next few days. Those ingredients will be important to determine the impacts on us. The air will be warm ahead of the front, and then get really gold behind it. This is more of a "spring like" storm rather than a system more typcial of the end of January.
More updates later.
