Orlando, FL, to Atlanta, GA, Weather: 11/11/19

It is currently mild, humid and sunny in Orlando, FL.

The NWS in Melbourne, FL, forecasts (for Orlando, FL) a mostly sunny day, with a high temperature of 83 F.  The winds will be from the north-northeast at 5-10 mph.

The NWS in Albuquerque, NM, forecasts (for Atlanta, GA) a mostly cloudy evening, with a 90% chance of showers and thunderstorms and a low temperature of 39 F. Winds will be from the southwest at 5 mph.

The visible satellite imagery shows very few clouds along my travel route this morning.  This image has been excluded from today’s post.

The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) Mesoscale Analysis chart shows the current surface conditions as mild, humid and sunny.  As I travel north, I will be headed towards a strong cold front, and temperatures will drop rapidly in Georgia.

The SPC Mesoscale Analysis chart shows that I will remain under a weak high pressure system, with no strong pressure gradients, all day today.

The Nested NAM simulated reflectivity shows precipitation will be likely this evening as I approach Atlanta.  It will probably rain all evening in Atlanta.

The Nested NAM predicts that the high temperatures along my travel route will peak in the upper 70s F.

Overnight, the temperatures are expected to drop into the upper 30s F near Atlanta, GA.

The Nested NAM shows that the dewpoints will remain in the 40s F along my travel route.

The Nested NAM shows strong wind gusts are unlikely along my travel route.

The Nested NAM simulated infrared satellite imagery predicts that I will be driving into the approaching clouds by late this afternoon.

I was enjoying the warm weather here in Orlando, but I guess that’s about to come to an end.  Who knew I’d go to Atlanta when it was cold?
