Last Sunday, we sought a little perspective on the coming forecast for Athens, Georgia. We found that there was a persistent northwesterly flow with high pressure advancing to the area. This placed Athens, and pretty much only Athens, in a rain shadow cast by the Smokey Mountains. The sun was due to be out, and most precipitation was shunted west and south. The correct forecast was to err on the warm, dry side, which Victoria Weather did, winning the forecast by a decent margin.
Actuals: Monday -.07 inches of rain, High 90, Low 73
Tuesday, .01 inches of rain, High 93, Low 72
