..00Z Aviation Update...

SHORT TERM /Tonight through Tuesday Night/...
Showers and thunderstorms are developing across the area but
things are still fairly isolated. Extreme north GA is still under
a marginal risk with the rest of the state under a general risk.
This still looks good for today as the best instability and
deepest moisture is across N GA. The over all weather pattern
continues to transition as the next frontal system to move
through the area is developing across the southern and central
plains today. This next frontal system is expected to push into
the Mid to lower MS river valley tonight and then into NW GA by
sunrise Tuesday. This system will weaken some as it pushes east
overnight but keeping N GA in a Marginal risk area still looks
good for Tuesday. This frontal system will bring much deeper
moisture in across the area and diurnally driven instability as
well. Precipitable water values increase into the 1.5in to 2.0in
range especially across N GA Tuesday so definitely looking for
increased shower and thunderstorm activity. The biggest threats
for any strong to severe storms appears to be heavy rain, Gusty
Winds, and Hail.

LONG TERM /Wednesday through Monday/...

No major changes needed for the forecast.

Zonal flow aloft gives way to a trough on Thursday. Behind the
trough, a high pressure ridge aloft builds in across the area. No
real change in the surface pattern for Wednesday, but a weak surface
boundary will begin to push south across the CWFA Thursday into
Friday. A return to a more diurnal pattern is expected for the
weekend into early next week.
