Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Peachtree City GA
250 PM EDT Sun May 16 2021


.SHORT TERM /Tonight through Monday Night/...
Dry weather will persist through the short term. Upper ridging will
continue to build on Monday, keeping any appreciable chance of
precip relegated away from the local area. With southerly surface
flow continuing, forecast minimum RH values will remain above
critical thresholds. Temperatures continue the gradual warming trend
with highs on Monday near normal after a cool morning.

.LONG TERM /Tuesday through Sunday/...
High pressure aloft and at the surface will dominate the sensible
weather through the extended portion of the forecast. Low level
moisture will increase with a prolonged easterly fetch off the
western Atlantic, leading to a more summer-like pattern of
heat/humidity. Pops too low to mention for much of the period.

Models are progging the upper ridge to potentially begin breaking
down late next weekend.

No major changes to the extended forecast needed.
