1030 pm edt Sat may 25 2019

Update
The overnight forecast remains in good shape, with no updates
necessary.

Prev discussion [737 pm edt]
Near term [through tonight]
Another dry and warm night is in store for the area with ridging
aloft and surface high pressure centered across the northern gulf
through the southern appalachians. Winds will become light and
variable this evening with lows falling into the lower 70s.

Heat advisory remains in effect for areas impacted by hurricane
michael, especially those counties in the florida panhandle and
adjacent southwest georgia counties through Monday afternoon.

Short term [Sunday through Monday night]
More of the same is in store for the short term period. Deep layer
ridge will slowly meander southward in response to a strong mid
level trough across the southern rockies. 700-400mb dry air will
still be locked in across the region keeping the rain chances
virtually nil. So the hot and dry pattern will continue. High
temperatures will reach the upper 90s to near 100 degrees and lows
in the lower 70s.

Long term [Tuesday through Saturday]
Changes in our stagnant weather pattern appear to be afoot but
not until late week. The mid level high continues to shift slowly
south towards the florida peninsula Thursday. Area time heights
show the subsidence and dry air hanging on till then. However,
tropical moisture does get advected towards the gulf coast on the
west side of the high and ahead of a weak boundary as its
associated mid level trough ejects into the northern plains. The
ridge does flatten late in the period which will allow that front
to make it into the southeast us. Both the GFS and euro show
precipitation towards the end of the week and the overall
atmospheric column moistening with pwats increasing towards 1.6 to
1.8 inches. I do have chances for rain at the end of the period
but kept as slight chance at this time. Temperature trends will
not be as hot with daytime highs with the increase in moisture and
lack of strong subsidence but still will be looking at mid to
perhaps upper 90s.

Aviation
[through 00z Monday]
vfr conditions under partly cloudy skies with light winds will
prevail through the taf.

Marine
High pressure will remain entrenched across the gulf of mexico
into the southeast united states. Winds will generally remain
light through the period with seas of 1 to 3 feet. No rain is
expected.

Fire weather
A very dry air mass is in place with relative humidity values mostly
between 30 to 35 percent across inland areas through the weekend.

Fuels are also dry in most locations. Red flag criteria will not be
met since winds will be light and relative humidity values are not
quite low enough. A southerly seabreeze around 10 mph is expected
each afternoon near the coast.

Hydrology
Little rainfall is expected through the next week so there are no
flooding concerns.

Spotter information statement
Spotter activation is not requested. However, spotters are always
encouraged to safely report significant weather conditions when they
occur by calling the office or tweeting us @nwstallahassee.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
