Unsettled Weather Ahead

The winds of change are blowing...


It looks like we're going to be in for at least three periods of unsettled weather with at least two of those bringing the possibility of some snow to the north Georgia mountains.

A cold front enters the state on Friday and the NWS has this to say about it:

"This timing opens the window for the possibility of a wintry wake-up in the north Georgia mountains on Saturday morning. 00Z Saturday model soundings show dry air near the surface in north Georgia that would be ripe for evaporational cooling. By 06Z the model soundings clearly demonstrate evaporational cooling close to the surface that helps create a below-freezing column which is necessary for snow. The model soundings for metro Atlanta and points south show a warmer column which would keep any precipitation liquid."

P-Type Nomogram Charts can be found here. If you look at Atlanta http://www.daculaweather.com/nomogram_ffc.php the NAM is showing thickness levels ripe for snow for the 12th. Scroll down on the page to and mouse over the example chart to see how it works.

So the other chance is again on Monday night and into Tuesday where north Georgia might get another opportunity at snow while it's beginning to look like a potential severe weather event around Thursday. We have undergone a pattern change but it appears the cold might be brief. While the models are playing catch up in trying to figure out what's going to happen, the timing of these systems will be off and only when we get to within a 2-3 day time span will they start to get a grip on the situation. There is lot of activity coming up, with lots of possibilites of different scenerios so stay tuned for more information as we get it.

North Georgia Weather February 13, 2012 at 11:16 AM
At 5:47am Monday the NWS issued a Winter Weather Advisory for counties in north Georgia for accumulations of up to several inches of sleet and snow. For our area you can expect a rain/snow mixture to begin after midnight and last through 10am or so before changing to all rain. Expect only minor accumulations at best in our area as the ground is just too warm. We will be very close to the freezing mark and evaporative cooling may drop us below freezing for a while. The cold air will be short lived though as a very warm southerly flow pushes the cold northeastward. Winter weather is not over. There is another system this weekend that may potentially bring more winter like weather to our area so stay tuned!

Well? Did you get up to watch the sleet? If not, run outside real quick and you might find a spot when some collected. I had an outdoor chair that had the bottom full of it. That's the story of our life in Georgia... so close yet so far. Expect a high of 50 today and 64 for the following two days with rain returning Wednesday night. Still eyeing another system that looks promising and I'll have more on that later.
