928pm EDT Monday August 19 2019

Going high Probability of Precipitation into the overnight with redevelopment of showers and thunderstorms ongoing across SW Georgia. Believe activity will wane somewhat late but will continue chance Probability of Precipitation across much the area. Temperatures will fall into the low to mid 70s with light winds.

.NEAR/SHORT TERM [Tonight Through Wednesday Night]... The weakness between the ridge to our west and the western extension of the Bermuda ridge will gradually get squeezed out as the ridges expand to bridge the gap. As it does, ribbon of deep layer moisture will lift northward resulting in low chances for showers and thunderstorms across the Tri-state area. By Wednesday, PoPs will mostly be in the chance category (30-40%) which is much closer to climo for late August. Highs will be in the upper 80s to around 90. Lows will be be in the lower 70s.

Long Term - Thursday Through Monday
A more diurnal, seabreeze driven pattern will resume with a weak pressure pattern in place at the lower and upper levels. Deeper moisture (as seen in PW values (Precipitable Water values) increasing) will return to western portions of the area on Thursday and remain in place into early next week. As a result of the increase in moisture, Probability of Precipitation will increase again during the long term period. Highs will be mostly in the low 90s with lows in the low 70s.
