It looks like we're finally going to get a decent rainfall over the next several days.
Saturday will see an increase in cloud cover as the next system approaches, but the rain should remain to our west. Sunday will be a different story with an abundant flow of moisture at all levels kicking off showers in advance of the tail end of a cold front that will run from the Great Lakes to the Gulf coast.
Monday will bring a chance of thundershowers as the front approaches with a weak vortex max approaching late Sunday night into Monday. This upper air spin will provide some twist to the atmosphere on top of some low level shear, and could cause a few thunderstorms to pop-up, but nothing severe.
The Hydrometeorological Prediction Center is calling for several inches of rainfall over the next five days, which would go a long way toward reducing the drought in our area and over much of Georgia. Here is a link to the drought maps, currently about 71 percent of the nation is in some stage of drought. If you'll scroll down to the last map, you'll see that some western metro counties would need 12-15 inches of rain to break the drought.
Forecast temperatures will run about five degrees above normal tonight, five to eight degrees above normal on Saturday, and 12-17 degrees above normal on Saturday night.
