Another Round of Rain This Week?

Greater chances of showers on the way.

After just a couple of days of drying out from the rain we had last week, the chances for precipitation will begin to return by the start of the week. 

And when I say drying out... that's only if you're lucky (or unlucky?). There is still rain around, just a little more scattered to isolated today than it has been over the last five days or so (take a look at this satellite image). But beginning Tuesday, the models show a weak trough forming over our area which will bring us a greater chance of showers through the rest of the work week. 

How much rain did you get this last week? Hopefully, if you missed out on the greater rain totals, you'll get what you missed this week.

Steve, are we still at risk for afternoon storm activity?

Lastest from NWS FFC: NONE OF THE HIRES MODELS HAD THE MCS REMNANTS LASTING SO LONG THIS MORNING. CONDITIONS ARE PRETTY STABLE ACROSS NORTH GEORGIA RIGHT NOW WITH CAPES BELOW 500 IN THE RAIN-COOLED AIRMASS. HOWEVER...BEHIND THE CIRRUS SHIELD... TEMPS ARE ALREADY STARTING TO INCREASE AND AT AFD TIME AM STARTING TO SEE CONVECTION FIRE NEAR CHA. THINK THAT IN THE END THE INSTABILITY WILL CATCH UP. 12Z KFFC MODIFIED SOUNDING WITH LOWER 70S DEWPOINTS AND A HIGH IN THE UPPER 80S GIVES OVER 3000 J/KG SBCAPE SO AT THIS POINT STILL EXPECT NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP WITH SOME POSSIBLY SEVERE. POPS MAY ACTUALLY NEED TO BE INCREASED INTO THE AFTERNOON ONCE WE GET A HANDLE ON LOCATION AND MOVEMENT.

Well... yesterday WASN'T the day that the NWS or the computer models had called for. I didn't get any rain until evening and then only 0.22". don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, I was just being greedy and hoping for more. Today should be different as we have a cold front that's forecast to sag into our area from the north, and that will provide the focus for afternoon and evening thundershowers. Once again this morning, the morning satellite images ( http://www.daculaweather.com/4_sat_se_us_z.php ) show us covered by a low cloud deck with showers around the area and those clouds and showers are helping to keep the temperatures nice and cool... but not what we need for heavy rainfall. People to our south will have more breaks in the clouds and those areas can expect to see the bigger thunderstorms as well as the possibility of a few of the storms becoming severe.
