The big chill forecast more than a week ago is here with frost and freeze this morning and the next couple mornings. Take precautions for pets, pipes, people and plants. Above map shows minimum temperature this morning.
We warm up starting Thursday afternoon.
The El Nino having coupled to the atmosphere at long last but expected to continue to fade away heading into Summer suggests up and down temperatures will continue the rest of March with above-average rainfall. In other words, more of the same of what we’ve seen the past four months.
A continued enhanced sub-tropical jet stream suggests an elevated risk of active severe weather across the South through the Spring with the worst generally to the West of Georgia.
The back and forth is probably going to continue in the Month of April, before more hot and dry weather starts taking hold in May and especially June with high pressure ridging taking more of a hold over the Southeast U.S.
Despite the unseasonably cold weather (10-20 degrees below-normal) no record lows (circled in white) are expected in Georgia.
