We’re headed to south Georgia for a bit of sun and fun. Or doom and gloom. Not sure yet!
At 653PM, ET, Albany was reporting a temperature of 58 degrees and clear skies. The surface pattern isn’t pretty active, but fairly unintuitively, it is very strong. There is a night and day cold front sitting through the Tennessee Valley, but upper air forces suggest that the boundary will slow down and deteriorate before it arrives in Georgia.
A weak trough over the Bahamas is generating some instability over the tropical islands, while at the same time staving off the moisture as it attempts to move towards the front over the Tennessee Valley. A stronger jet moving out of the Plains will point towards Georgia tomorrow evening, which will overwhelm the Bahamian feature, and will draw moisture northwest towards South Georgia, and isolated thunderstorms will be possible in the evening. As the strong upper level trough becomes smoother, it will cease feeding instability to the southeastern US, and Thursday will level off as a fairly pleasant day.

Here is the look at the satellite imagery. The boundary, still well north of this image, is so strong, it’s ejecting a pre-frontal line of high clouds, which you can see in northern Georgia and Alabama.
