Cloudy, Wet and Cool Weather Ahead for North Georgia

Much needed rain is coming.

Welcomed rain is on the way for us here in north Georgia later today, tonight, and tomorrow, with the approach of a shortwave. With pressure building down the east side of the Appalachian mountains, one of our normal CAD events will be setting up. 

In the cooler times of the year when high pressure areas are to our north or northeast, many times the colder air will be forced down the mountains instead of traveling east to west over them, the cold air is basically blocked and can only go south. And therefore CAD stands for Cold Air Damming. What this means for us today is that our temperatures will remain about 15 degrees below normal for this time of year. 

Showers will be building and the heaviest period will be tonight. The NWS has us down for an 80 percent chance of some pretty decent rains.

Pretty stiff wind out of the northeast due to the damming effect, while winds higher up are coming from the southwest. Classic overrunning of the warm air over the cooler air. It will make for a rainy, drizzly, chilly day. Right now no rain around but as the day goes on it will begin increasing.

One page I will be watching today is this mesonet page that displays conditions from various stations in Georgia. http://www.daculaweather.com/4_mesonet.php

So what you are saying is that I need to quit what I am doing and get outside and get the leaves blown now before they get all wet.
