PREV DISCUSSION
 
/ISSUED 428 AM EDT WED OCT 1 2014/  
 
SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...  
 
MAINLY QUIET WEATHER IN STORE FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA THROUGH  
THE SHORT TERM...THOUGH THAT CHANGES AS WE TRANSITION INTO THE  
EXTENDED. WEAK RIDGING ALOFT WITH SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE DOMINATES  
THE SOUTHEAST. A VERY STRONG TROUGH PUSHES OFF THE ROCKIES TOMORROW  
INCREASING THE AMPLITUDE OF THE OVERALL WAVE...SO WEAK RIDGING TODAY  
GIVES WAY TO MUCH STRONGER RIDGING OVER THE SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS  
TOMORROW. THE BIG STORY THROUGH THE SHORT TERM WILL BE THE  
INCREASING TEMPERATURES. WELL ABOVE NORMAL HIGHS EXPECTED TODAY...  
GENERALLY MID TO UPPER 80S...AND VERY SIMILAR TOMORROW. FOR ATLANTA  
THE CURRENTLY FORECAST HIGHS /85 BOTH DAYS/ ARE ONLY 4 DEGREES OFF  
FROM RECORDS /RECORD IS 89 FOR BOTH DAYS/...THOUGH OTHER CLIMATE  
SITES ARE QUITE A BIT FURTHER AWAY FROM RECORD VALUES. NOT MUCH IN  
THE WAY OF WIND EITHER SO IT MIGHT BE KIND OF OPPRESSIVE OUT THERE  
IN A RELATIVE SENSE...FOR OCTOBER 1. MIGHT GET A LITTLE MORE OF A  
BREEZE ON THURSDAY IN ADVANCE OF THE APPROACHING TROUGH BUT WITH THE  
SOUTHERLY FLOW KICKING UP IT WILL JUST SERVE TO INCREASE SURFACE  
MOISTURE AND HUMIDITY. MAY BEGIN TO SEE A SLIGHT INCREASE IN CLOUDS  
THURSDAY AS WELL. BIGGER CHANGES COMING FOR THE EXTENDED.  
 
TDP  
 
LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/...  
 
UPPER RIDGE MOVING OFF THE ATLANTIC COAST THURSDAY NIGHT AS A COLD  
FRONT ENTERS THE MS VALLEY. FRONT APPROACHING NORTHWEST GA AROUND  
18Z FRIDAY AND MOVING THROUGH THE FORECAST AREA FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND  
INTO FRIDAY NIGHT. INSTABILITY SUFFICIENT FOR THUNDERSTORMS DURING  
THAT TIME WITH BEST CAPES AROUND 1500 AND LIFTED INDEX VALUES OF  
MINUS 3 TO MINUS 5. SEVERE POTENTIAL LOOKS LIMITED FOR NOW. SHARP  
TROUGH CROSSING THE SOUTHEAST SATURDAY AND SUNDAY WITH DRY AND  
COLDER AIR. SOME MODIFICATION FOR THE FIRST OF THE WEEK. LOOKS LIKE  
A SHORT WAVE MOVES ACROSS THE OH/TN VALLEYS ON TUESDAY AND HAVE  
INCLUDED LOW POPS ACROSS THE FAR NORTH. TEMPERATURES SHOULD BE WARM  
FOR FRIDAY AHEAD OF THE FRONT...BUT CLOUDS AND RAIN WILL MODIFY  
THOSE VALUES. TEMPERATURES COOLING DOWN FOR THE WEEKEND.
