    All day rain in the north metro ATL kept the high today to 75, now 67. Nice to have a cool summer day.

    Gotta report the bad records too...Second straight record warm February in Atlanta - KATL averaged 57.3° (+9.9°) eclipsing 2017 by more than a degree. My yard averaged 55.4° (+8.2° vs KPDK) but I hit 81° twice (22nd and 24th). Oddly KATL only topped out at 79° even though it's 30 miles south of me and did not hit their monthly record of 80°.

    Normally a morning low of 40° in February wouldn't merit a post but this morning's reading of 40° is the coldest since Feb 8 - 18 days.

    Day after day of -35°C temps in Siberia - those are some tough folks.

    If January 2018 ended today this would be the fifth coldest January on record (140 years) at ATL- looks like that number is going to back off some though as we finish the month.

    Snow is all done in Roswell, GA. Measured 1.3" - currently 15°. Congrats to all seeing snow and especially those of you who have been shut out for so long.

    Plus these type of maps highly distort the size of the polar area - the actual polar area on the globe is much smaller

    The January 7-8th possible CAD storm

    Temperature climbing - now 33/11 - you can see the precip disappear on the radar as it runs into the dry air wedge extending over into metro ATL

    FFC is interested - from this morning's discussion: "GFS and ECMWF models are in good agreement regarding the timing of this frontal feature, bringing PoPs in late Sunday night and until early Tuesday morning when the moves eastward out of the area. With this continuing increased confidence, have increased to categorical PoPs during the daytime on Monday. By Sunday night, a wedge will have formed across the northeast portions of the forecast area. Cold temperatures at the surface within the wedge combined with warmer temperatures aloft will create the potential for freezing rain and sleet. Wintry precipitation total will be highly dependent on the position and strength of the wedge, so forecast will be subject to change over the next few days." They have already put mix of rain / freezing rain into the forecast for my area (N Metro ATL) for Sunday night / Monday AM

    December 2017 Observations, reports

    Check out the SWS sent out from FFC a little while ago - radar is looking interesting. Some central Al stations reporting light rain but didn't see anything frozen. I'm at 34/26 (Roswell, GA). Special Weather Statement National Weather Service Peachtree City GA 1036 PM EST Tue Dec 26 2017 GAZ011>014-019>025-027-030>037-041>048-052>055-057-271400- Chattooga-Gordon-Pickens-Dawson-Floyd-Bartow-Cherokee-Forsyth- Hall-Banks-Jackson-Madison-Polk-Paulding-Cobb-North Fulton- Gwinnett-Barrow-Clarke-Oconee-Haralson-Carroll-Douglas- South Fulton-DeKalb-Rockdale-Walton-Newton-Heard-Coweta-Fayette- Clayton-Henry- 1036 PM EST Tue Dec 26 2017 ...Potential for Brief Wintry Mix Late Tonight... Light precipitation is expected to overspread much of central and north Georgia after midnight, tonight. The precipitation is expected to mainly be in the form of a cold rain, however, brief periods of light sleet could mix in with the rain, mainly along and north of I-20, late tonight into early Wednesday morning. No ice or sleet accumulations are expected as temperatures remain above freezing. Along the far northern periphery of this area, a few bridges and overpasses could become slick toward Wednesday morning.
  15. Snow has stopped for now - 4" on the grass - we'll see what round 2 brings - Roswell, GA 33°/30°
