No, we aren’t going overseas, we’re just headed down to the Atlanta area for our forecast today. d
At 153PM, ET, Rome was reporting a temperature of 47 degrees with clear skies. A weak ridge is developing over the southeastern United States even as a trough was leading to a fairly significant storrm is organizing in the Plains. The combination of these forces will lead to a substantial warm up through the day today, with warm air in place tomorrow as well.
The system will move into the Ohio Valley through the day tomorrow, with a cold front developing southwest through Arkansas. Return flow will be moisture laden, and rain and embedded thunderstorms will outpace the front by quite a bit. The threat for rain and thunder will show up by tomorrow evening. Showers and thunderstorms will continue through the night, before dry, cold and stable air moves into Rome, leading to a fairly tolerable Monday afternoon.

The outlets that don’t carry hourly forecasts all the way through are going to struggle with this verification. I’m also blown away by how early the NWS and Weatherbug are ending rain in Rome. IT looks to me like things are going to stall right over Rome, and keep it rainy until 7, and not “light rain” either. Here is the satellite, showing the system staging in the Plains.
