.SHORT TERM /Today through Thursday/...

High pressure building into the area will keep things dry with wind 
speeds also diminish today. A colder airmass is moving in across the 
state behind the cold front that pushed across the region Tuesday. 
Low temps this morning are expected to be mainly in the teens and 
20s with high temps this afternoon in the 40s and 50s across the 
CWA. A bit more southwesterly flow sets up later today so low temps 
Tonight are not expected to get as low with reading mainly in the 
30s expected Thu morning. High temps Thu will also rebound into the 
50s and 60s.

.LONG TERM /Thursday Night through Tuesday/...

No significant changes made to the long-term forecast trends.
Medium-range models remain somewhat static in the large scale pattern
but fairly progressive concerning the smaller-scale features through
the majority of the period. Also continue to see fairly good
agreement between models through the beginning of next week. Some
divergence as we head into the middle of next week. All-in-all,
period starts out cool but dry. Short wave sweeps through Friday, but
better moisture and precipitation remains generally south of the
forecast area. Shift to a persistent southwesterly upper flow pattern
over the weekend brings in a milder and wetter period by Sunday
through late Monday, tapering off some as we head into the middle of
next week.

.AVIATION...
06Z Update...
VFR Ceilings...No precip...No restrictions to VSBYs expected. The
biggest concern will be the winds today. Winds will sty out of 
the NW to SW though the period but wind speeds may still be an 
issue. There are still a few locations with winds gusting to 20kt 
but they should diminish to 10kt or less over the next few hours.
Will see winds pick back up this afternoon but should only see 
winds in the 10-15kt range with very little gust. after 00z Thu 
winds will die back down to 10kt or less. 

//ATL Confidence...06Z Update...
High confidence on all elements.
