Today we embark on a 2-day, 845-mile trip from Lafayette, IN down through the Ohio and TN Valleys to good ol’ Savannah. Hope you’re looking to one last beach getaway of the season! Let’s see how the trip there will be
Strong high pressure continues to sit over the Northeastern quadrant of the country, keeping every high and dry. The only issue is if there is some morning fog to burn off, but even if there is, it will only last an hour or two after sunrise. As we travel through Kentucky, there will be some cumulus clouds starting to bubble up around midday, and we could even see an isolated shower as we make our way into Nashville. These should be short-lived, however, and of little consequence as we push our way into Chattanooga, our stop for the night.
There’s a disturbance that’s slowly shifting from the FL Panhandle up towards the southern Appalachians, and this is expected to bring some pretty decent rainfall to the Southeast. As we head into Northern Georgia, our trip will slow down some as we hit these showers and thunderstorms, and will continue to have to deal with them as we move through Atlanta. Activity should lighten up some in the afternoon as we make our way into Savannah, but will increase once again during the late-evening and overnight hours after we arrive. Guess the beach will have to wait one more day.
