GFS/ECMWF IN GOOD AGREEMENT THROUGH THIS WEEKEND WITH DRY
CONDITIONS AND A SLOW WARMING TREND. DIFFERENCE DEVELOP WITH THE
NEXT SHORT WAVE FOR EARLY NEXT WEEK. THE GFS HAS MORE MOISTURE
WHILE THE ECMWF IS MAINTAINING A DRIER SOLUTION. GIVEN THAT
MOISTURE IS LACKING...AM TRENDING WITH THE LESS AGGRESSIVE ECMWF
AND KEEPING SLIGHT CHANCE TO CHANCE POPS FOR EXTREME NORTH GA
MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT. THE NEXT SYSTEM FOR THE END OF
NEXT WEEK ALSO HAS DIFFERENCES. THE GFS IS MUCH MORE AGGRESSIVE
WITH MOISTURE WHILE THE ECMWF IS MUCH SLOWER WITH THE SYSTEM
