Athens, Georgia

Today we’re going east to Athens for a lovely forecast! Georgia that is, not Greece. We’re not going THAT far east! That’d just be silly.

At 9:51pm EDT, the temperature at Athens, GA is 75 degrees under overcast skies. A band of rain showers and thunderstorms is found just off to the southeast of the city and is luckily moving off towards the east. A large trough has dug its way deep into the Eastern US, pushing a cold front through the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, but stalling out over the Deep South. Areas of extemeley heavy rains have been reported from the eastern Carolinas to eastern Texas in the last couple days, as lines of thunderstorms have cropped up then proceeded to train over the same areas. Doesn’t make for much relief when the front instigating them doesn’t move anywhere. More of the same is expected on Monday, but thankfully the bulk of them should be over southern GA, with only a few scattered thunderstorms to negotiate. As the trough starts to swing a bit to the east, the activity will to slide a bit off to the southeast as well as the front slowly makes its way to the coast. While there’ll be some increased afternoon cloud cover, I think the precip should avoid the Athens area.

Monday: Few scattered thunderstorms. High 86, Low 66.
Tuesday: Increasing clouds in afternoon. High 86, Low 64.

TWC: Monday: Scattered thunderstorms. High 83, Low 66.

NWS: Monday: Scattered thunderstorms. High 85, Low 68.

WB: Monday: Chance of thunderstorms. High 85, Low 68.

Hey look, NWS/WB have the same numbers. Again. Big surprise! Here we see the large cloudy shield covering the Southeast from the stalled front.
