Summer is almost officially here!

Summer seems to have came a little early for most of North Georgia, as we are expected to reach into the upper 90s for the second day in a row. Even though summer does not officially start until June 20th, summer has most certainly set up shop over the Southeast a little earlier than normal this year. Unfortunately, the classic summer time pop-up thunderstorms came with it as well leaving parts of north Georgia wet and hot this Father's Day weekend. Fortunately, north Georgia is expected to start drying up as a high pressure begins to set up once more this week. This will keep us warm and moderately dry for the most part, but stray pop-up thunderstorm cannot be ruled out, especially early this week. In general, rain chances will be less than what they are today throughout this week.


The Gulf Coast however, will begin seeing a surge of tropical moisture, from a now tropical disturbance, with rainfall starting Monday evening. The National Hurricane Center has this disturbance a 70% chance to organize into a tropical storm by the middle of the week. Rounds of rain will be expected over the Gulf coast with a bullseye over southeast Texas. From the boot of Louisiana all the way down the east coast of Mexico, they could see near double digit rainfall totals by the end of this week based on long term model guidance. For us here in north Georgia, most of this moisture will not reach us. But, we will see passing clouds because of it along with a small chance of a storm here and there across the region as we go through the week. This will cool us down from the upper 90s down into the upper 80s and lower 90s for most places in north Georgia. Not much of a cool down for us, but its about all we can expect as summer officially starts this Thursday.
