Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Peachtree City GA
251 AM EST Sat Nov 25 2017



.SHORT TERM /Today through Sunday/...
A rather weak cold front will move across the area this afternoon
and evening with an associated upper level trough and decent
mid-high level moisture only and no instability at all.
The NAM/GFS/European models are consistent once again with indicating
NO measurable rain. Will continue with a slight chance or chance
of sprinkles, for n and portions of central GA, which means that I
am NOT expecting any measurable rainfall.

Skies clear up for Sunday with a sunny day expected.

Forecast high temperatures are running 1-4 degrees above normal today
and close to normal for Sunday. Forecast high temperatures are running
close to normal tonight.

Overall confidence is high.

.LONG TERM /Sunday Night through Friday/...
High pressure will dominate most of the long term portion of the
forecast. A cold front is still progged to move across the area
during the late part of next week, but precipitation chances remain
pretty small.

High pressure will be overhead at the beginning of the long term
portion of the forecast, but will begin to shift offshore Monday
night into Tuesday. A weak wedge may try to build in briefly for
Wednesday. The cold front is still progged to move through overnight
Thursday into Friday. This front is still the best chance for
measurable rainfall in the seven day period, but less of a quarter
of an inch of QPF is anticipated at this time. Rainfall chances
remain at 30 percent or less.

Seasonable temperatures are anticipated through the period.
