Atlanta, Georgia

The first forecast for the month of August takes us to Hotlanta. Lets check out some weather.

At 1052AM, ET, Atlanta was reporting a temperature of 87 degrees with partly cloudy skies. A dew point in the 70s completed the picture of a typical summer day in the southeast. The cloyingly thick air was also responsible for an air quality alert as it stagnated over northern Georgia.
A weak wave has moved through the southeast overnight towards the Florida Panhandle. Given the temperature and dewpoint in Atlanta, it’s pretty clear that the area hasn’t stabilized, though today may be a little less active than recent days. The pattern over the northern Plains will bear an impact on Georgia the next two days, however, as a robust southwesterly flow off the Gulf will develop. A broad low moving along the Canadian border will induce the flow, and thunderstorms will be come more widespread across the Atlanta area each of the next two days.

Without a massive change in air mass, we are all checking in with very similar forecasts. A look at the satellite shows some thunderstorms over Mississippi and Alabama, moving away from Atlanta.
