AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PEACHTREE CITY GA  
322 AM EDT THU SEP 19 2019  
   
SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
 
 
LATEST REGIONAL SURFACE ANALYSIS INDICATES WEDGE FRONT HAS MADE  
IT JUST ABOUT OUT OF THE AREA WITH THE MAJORITY NOW OVER PORTIONS  
OF EASTERN ALABAMA. BEHIND THIS FEATURE, HIGH PRESSURE CONTINUES  
TO WEDGE IN THROUGH THE CAROLINAS AND THE LOCAL AREA. DEWPOINTS  
ALREADY SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER WITH MID TO UPPER 50S ACROSS MOST  
LOCATIONS AND THIS HAS RESULTED IN LOWER MIN TEMPS AS WELL.  
DESPITE AN ABUNDANCE OF CLOUD COVER, SITES LIKE ATLANTA WHICH  
WERE AROUND 80 DEGREES THIS TIME LAST NIGHT, ARE SOME 8 DEGREES  
LOWER TONIGHT.  
 
EXPECT CLOUD COVER TO REMAIN OVER THE AREA FOR MOST OF TODAY AND  
GONE ON THE HIGHER SIDE OF GUIDANCE FOR CLOUD COVER. STILL THINK  
THERE COULD BE ENOUGH SUN LATE THOUGH TO ALLOW FOR TEMPS TO JUST  
CREEP INTO THE LOWER 80S FOR NORTH GA. BUT SHOULD THE CLOUDS HANG  
ON JUST A LITTLE LONGER THOUGH, WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED TO SEE  
SOME UPPER 70S HIGH MORE IN LINE WITH THE MAV GUIDANCE.  
 
FIRST COOL DOWN AS WE APPROACH THE FALL SEASON IN STORE FOR  
TONIGHT WITH LOWER 50S FOR THE MOUNTAINS AND MID TO UPPER 50S  
ELSEWHERE. SHOULD BE CLEARING SKIES AND LOWER WINDS WHICH SHOULD  
ENHANCE RADIATIONAL COOLING CONDITIONS. ONE ADDITIONAL DAY AROUND  
CLIMO IN STORE FOR FRIDAY WITH LOWER 80S FOR MOST LOCALES ALTHOUGH  
MID 80S WILL BE THE RULE OVER CENTRAL GA.  
 
DEESE  
   
LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
 
 
NO MAJOR CONCERNS FOR THE LONG TERM PERIOD WITH MOSTLY  
DRY WEATHER EXPECTED. HIGH PRESSURE IS EXPECTED TO PREDOMINATE  
THROUGH THE WEEKEND.  
 
A WEAK COLD FRONT IS FORECAST TO MOVE INTO THE AREA LATE MONDAY  
TO EARLY TUESDAY AND BECOME STATIONARY LATE TUESDAY INTO  
WEDNESDAY. THIS IS WHERE THE GFS AND EUROPEAN DIFFER WITH THE  
EUROPEAN MAINLY DRY AND THE GFS HAVING MORE AND MOISTURE AND  
PRODUCING SOME RAIN AMOUNTS FROM LATE MONDAY INTO WEDNESDAY OVER  
PORTIONS OF THE FORECAST AREA.  
 
WILL KEEP THINGS DRY FOR NOW UNTIL THERE IS MORE CONSISTENCY  
BETWEEN THE MODELS WITH RAIN CHANCES.  
 
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO BE WITHIN SEVERAL DEGREES OF NORMAL  
TO START BUT WARM TO ABOVE NORMAL FROM SUNDAY/MONDAY AND BEYOND.

LARGE AREA OF VFR CIGS IS CURRENTLY INFILTRATING ALL TAF SITES  
RANGING MAINLY FROM BKN035 TO BKN065. EXPECT THIS TO CONTINUE  
THROUGH THE LATE MORNING AND POSSIBLY INTO EARLY AFTERNOON. SHOULD  
SEE ADDITIONAL LESSENING OF THE CLOUD COVER THROUGH THIS EVEN  
WITH SKC BY 02Z ON FRI. WINDS WILL BE GUSTY AGAIN TODAY OUT OF THE  
EAST BUT THESE GUSTS SHOULD BE ON THE LOW END WITH MAX VALUES  
AROUND 20 KTS AT ATL.
