Interesting but far from certain forecast over the next few days.
Region remains in a cold pattern with a series of waves moving
through the region. First wave brought the rain (and even some brief
periods of sleet) to all but northwest Georgia today. Indications
are that the next wave and surge of precipitation tomorrow into the
beginning of the extended forecast period, Friday/Friday night, will
be similar in distribution. Difference will be the temperature
profiles and therein lies the uncertainty. Right now it looks like
we start out tomorrow through much of tomorrow night with a cold
rain with some snow mixing in across west-central and north Georgia
by Friday morning. There is some potential for accumulations along
and north of the I-85 corridor by sun-up Friday, but that area
should be seeing fairly light precipitation amounts in that time
frame. We will need to keep a close eye on how the future runs of
the medium range models come together. For now confidence is not
high enough in the next 36 hours for any advisories or watches.
