Postado Abril 15, 2018

Winds will weaken late Monday night.* Location.Near mountain ridge tops and along desert mountain slopes into adjacent desert areas.* Impacts.The winds will make driving difficult.especially for motorists with high profile vehicles.

A line of thunderstorms will move in to western Southwest Georgia Sunday morning, continuing to move east throughout the morning into the afternoon. Partly cloudy skies will continue overnight, with warm lows in the low 70s.

As we head through the evening, a line of strong to severe thunderstorms will track from west to east across the state. There isn't a whole lot of moisture available, so we'll be mainly dry.

However, by tomorrow, expect more clouds and even a few scattered showers throughout the day. We hit the upper 80s and low 90s on Tuesday. Lows Monday will dip into the upper 30s to low 40s.

The line could bring over 50 miles per hour winds to the area, heavy rainfall and even some isolated tornadoes. Sunday will be a washout with rainfall totals ultimately reaching 1"-2"+ inches across the area".

Your planning forecast highlights a spike n rain chances at the tail end of the weekend, but dry, tranquil weather returns for the rest of next week. We expect 2-3 inches of rain to come down from this - which could prompt flooding Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning. Shear profiles suggest potential for isolated rotating storms but more unidirectional and thus main threat appears to be small hail with colder mid level air moving through.

Cooler and more tranquil weather will arrive for Monday. Starting Sunday, temperatures will push well into the 50s, and perhaps a 60° high is possible.

It may not be time to fish out the factor 50 just yet, but the sunshine and warm weather brings a welcome change from the usual carry-on!
