See-saw temperature pattern continues

In the good ole springtime. The thermometer see-saw pattern will continue through the end of March, and probably half if not all of April.

After yet another light freeze Thursday morning, a big warm up the next 5 days including 70 or above.

Yes rain and a few thunderstorms are likely this weekend into Monday, but plenty of dry hours and dry areas to go around, far from a washout as it looks now anyway.


We need to monitor a severe weather risk for Monday based on CIPS analog guidance.


The systems impacting us ride Northeast up the Atlantic coast and may turn into a 4th Nor’easter.

It will drag temperatures in the 30s for lows back to town by Thursday and Friday of next week with a light freeze or frost possible again before another warm-up follows.

Meanwhile, drought is gone in North Georgia but continues in South Georgia. Screen Shot 2018-03-15 at 12.07.45 PM

But it could be much worse. Some places in the Southern Plains have gone 150 days without rain, worst in recorded history in a few spots.
