.SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
CURRENT RADAR LOOP SHOWS SOME SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS
ACROSS SOUTH AND CENTRAL GA AS LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM SPINS OVER
SOUTHEAST GA. WE CURRENTLY HAVE JUST A FEW SHOWERS ACROSS OUR SERN
CORNER OF THE CWA BUT THE THUNDERSTORMS ARE STAYING CLOSE TO THE
CENTER OF LOW PRESSURE. THERE IS STILL A DECENT AMOUNT OF LOW LEVEL
MOISTURE IN PLACE BUT OVERALL INSTABILITY STILL LOOKS TO BE LACKING.
THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE REMAINS STEADILY CENTERED OVER CENTRAL FL BUT
IT WILL WEAKEN THROUGH THE SHORT TERM AS AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH TAKES
ITS PLACE BY FRI MORNING. ALL IN ALL HAVE INCREASED POPS THU ACROSS
THE AREA WITH MOISTURE INCREASING AND THE RIDGE WEAKENING. HIGH
TEMPS EXPECTED TO BE RIGHT AT OR SLIGHTLY ABOVE SEASONAL NORMS THU
WITH LOWS IN THE 60S AND 70S.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/...
/ISSUED 342 AM EDT WED SEP 2 2015/
THE EXTENDED WILL BRING UNSETTLED WEATHER BACK TO THE
AREA...ESPECIALLY BY THE WEEKEND. TEMPERATURES ON FRIDAY WILL BE
QUITE WARM WITH TEMPERATURES RUNNING A FEW DEGREES ABOVE AVERAGE.
WHILE THERE WILL BE THE CHANCE FOR WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS FRIDAY AFTERNOON...RAIN CHANCES WILL INCREASE IN
EARNEST ON SATURDAY IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE BACK DOOR FRONT PUSHING
IN FROM THE EAST. THE CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE HIGHER ON
SATURDAY AHEAD OF THE WEDGE FRONT WHERE HIGHER INSTABILITIES WILL
RESIDE. SCATTERED SHOWERS WILL LINGER FOR SUNDAY...BUT ANY
THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD BE MORE ISOLATED WITH THE COOLER AND MORE
STABLE AIRMASS MORE ENTRENCHED INTO THE AREA. TEMPERATURES WILL BE
SEVERAL DEGREES COOLER FOR MUCH OF THE AREA ON SATURDAY AND AREA
WIDE ON SUNDAY WITH EASTERLY WINDS AND MORE CLOUD COVER.

EARLY NEXT WEEK AN UPPER LOW IS FORECAST TO CUT OFF AND LINGER OVER
THE SOUTHEASTERN U.S. FOR THIS REASON HAVE MAINTAINED CHANCE POPS
DURING THIS TIME FRAME. TEMPERATURES WILL BE HELD INTO THE LOW TO
MID 80S FOR DAYTIME HIGHS.
