Lake Lanier forecast update

A cold front will be passing over the Lake Lanier/Gainesville area at just before or right at the morning take-off, meaning that showers will be likely to start the day but those shower chances will be diminishing through the morning. All rain should be gone prior to noon and skies will become partly to mostly cloudy. Temperatures at take-off will be in the lower 50s and will climb into the mid-60s by the afternoon hours. Winds will be out of the west at 5-10 MPH all day long. Dewpoints will be in the lower 50s and dropping to the upper 40s by the end of the day. Rainfall amounts will be very light, less than 0.10 inches from launch to 10:00 am ET. Rain chances will start off around 50% and will drop to less than 10% after the noon hour.

Unfortunately, another round of showers with some embedded heavier rainfall will be possible throughout the entire day on Sunday, but the good news is that lightning is not expected at this time. While it may not rain all day long, rain will be likely at any time during the day, especially after the later morning through the end of the fishing day. Rain chances will start off around 40% at take-off and climbing up to around 80% by the noon hour. Rainfall amounts will be around 0.25-0.50 inches during the fishing day. Highs will top out in the lower 50s after starting off in the mid-40s at take-off. Winds will be out of the east at 5-10 MPH. Dewpoints will start off in the lower 40s and rising into the mid-40s by the afternoon.
