Forecast Discussion

The high pressure dome will finally be pushed away with the onset of a trough, with a low pressure system much further north. The cold front from this system is set to swing through later this afternoon, which has prompted this Slight Risk of severe weather for our area today. Damaging wind gusts remain the primary threat, though small hail and an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. These storms will approach Athens in a broken line, and thus could be a bit more scattered and disorganized. Observable as well are some more gusty winds up to 25 mph as this front comes and goes. Once it has passed, temperatures will finally cool off, which will especially be felt tomorrow once the high comes down to 85 degrees.

This break from hot weather will be short lived, though, as Tuesday pushes temperatures back to the low 90s. However, this is due to the approach of another low pressure system, which will return rain and thunder to our area Wednesday afternoon. For the time being, there is much uncertainty about any severe impacts. Once that system passes, Thursday cools off again. Which this pattern is a lot more variable, it certainly beats the constant, oppressive heat we’ve been feeling!
