.DISCUSSION...

Winds are very light to start out the day with a surface front in
the vicinity of Athens. This is resulting in a largely variable
wind less than 5 mph. These should gradually come around to west
during the mid morning and afternoon and increase to 10 mph with
gusts confined to any vicinity thunderstorm activity. A shower
could pop up at just about anytime, even this morning, but best
chances will be from early afternoon on when thunderstorms will
also develop. West winds aloft as well should create increased
dispersion values by late morning. Any questions, please do not
hesitate to contact us.
