High 55 today...love those spring days in which the high temp is predicted higher but it busts because of CAD. Hasn't even really rained yet today (which was good for us earlier) but it freaking poured last night for a while.

It is still raining here. Every time it looks like the rain is going to end for the day another round of moderate rain develops to my west. Most likely will end today with over an inch which is a bit more then I originally expected. Oh, and it looks like I will see another half inch to an inch tomorrow. Yay.🙃

It's being discussed in the main thread.

12z models though suggest the best threat has shifted SE (including into Metro Atlanta).
Yeah been noticing a shift south with this system today. Looks like there might even be two waves. One in the late morning/early afternoon and another in the evening/overnight which is the main one to watch. Will be interesting to watch unfold. I would bet the slight risk area will be extended into metro Atlanta at the next SPC update.

Been noticing that the models are trying to slightly back off on the wedge a tad which could put me into play a bit, but the wedge typically over performs so I expect no severe weather in my neck of the woods. Not gonna complain though I don’t need severe weather with what is already happening.

I know it won’t matter but cmc is low to mid 30s with the GFS and there is a big storm over Florida near April 1st. Maybe it trend to a cold rain.

EPS erodes it at hour 300... but this pattern looks likely at this point, I just wanna get cold out the way at this point it’s so f***ing annoying
On the flip side of this, if we manage to find ourselves in a persistent & strong -NAO regime for a significant portion of the spring, anticipate the Atlantic MDR to warm up... a lot. The low frequency signals for an above-well above average hurricane season are the strongest I've seen since the early 2010s.

Wow! April is here, surely we're well on our way to summer now!

Just kidding, April fools, instead here's that west based -NAO you've wanted to see all winter long...

If there's a bright side to this crap, the temperature departures show more bark than bite when accounting for climo, and if anything, the models tend to have a cold bias that far out around this time of year.

Yeah I wouldn't mind seeing a ton of rain later this summer but I don't want it to shut off suddenly in August like we did last year, hurricane season may make or break us in that department.

Yeah , average highs by that timeframe are up to 70 in much of the viewing region . So it would mean some low 60s , maybe low 50s which would suck. Cold is incredibly pointless this time of year , nothing pleasant about 50 and clouds . March is one of the sunnier months of the year here and so far it has been likely cloudiest month I have ever experienced .

Bit of a forecast bust today with CAD clouds deep into NC, GA, SC. Brad P. doesn’t need to apologize tho because the news is focused on the corona. Just like his winter forecast no shame just hide.
