It would be more exciting if we are off to Greece, I will admit, but Georgia can be fun too! Especially when you start taking their weather into account, which frankly is all we’re taking into account.
At 551PM, ET, Athens was reporting a temperature of 86 degrees with clear skies. Through all layers, there wasn’t much organization or a recognizeable boundary in the southeast, but a deep trough and an advancing area of high pressure in the portion of the US is cordoning off the area of instability, leading to a whole lot of general convection in the southeast. Athens is in the clear for now, as it appears a gentle northwesterly flow is stranding moisture in the southern Appalachians.
The next two days will be more of the same. The ridge will continue to sink towards the southeast, amplifying precipitation through the Southeast, as the available area of instability is further restricted. Still northwesterly flow will keep Athens in a somewhat more favorable position. Athens will mostly be dry for the next two days, but there will be an isolated storm in the area. It could be worse though, and it probably will be 50 miles from Athens in any direction.

Here is a broad look at the radar, showing a nice window up around Athens where things ain’t so bad. Everywhere else is a mess, though.
