area forecast discussion
national weather service tallahassee fl
854 pm edt Mon aug 21 2017

Near term [through tonight]
Only made minor changes to tonight's pops based on radar hi-res
model trends, and also blended in latest temperature dewpoint
obs this evening. An upper level low will continue to push
northwestward through the central gulf, but deep layer ridging
will generally persist to its northeast across our area. Still,
ample moisture and moderate instability will result in a continued
slight chance of showers and thunderstorms this evening, with
higher chances closer to the fl big bend coast as remnant outflow
boundaries and the atlantic sea breeze could enhance forcing in
this area. Overnight lows will be in the lower-mid 70s inland,
with upper 70s along the gulf coast.

Prev discussion [723 pm edt]
Short term [Tuesday through Wednesday night]
Typical summertime weather is expected on Tuesday, with convection
mainly driven by the seabreeze and afternoon heating. Slightly
higher rain chances are forecast for Wednesday as a front slides
south towards the area and provides a bit of enhanced forcing.

With the return to slightly wetter conditions, afternoon
temperatures are only expected to climb into the lower 90s,
instead of the mid 90s from the past several days.

Long term [Thursday through Monday]
To start the period the area will between a trough over the
northeast and the remnants of harvey over the texas mexico
border. A front extending from the trough will move through over
the weekend keeping rain chances high. As a low moves up the east
coast of florida, we may see some drying on the back side of the
low. Pops will generally be 30-50% with highs in the upper 80s to
low 90s.

Aviation [through 00z Wednesday]
Vfr conditions should prevail through the taf, outside of
thunderstorms, at all terminals. Shower and thunderstorm activity
is quickly diminishing at this hour, with no impacts expected to
area terminals overnight. Tomorrow afternoon, scattered storms are
expected once again, with the highest probability at tlh and least
likely at ecp. As of this update, only carrying restrictions in
storms at tlh around 20z tomorrow.

Marine
Winds and seas are expected to remain low through the next several
days. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible
throughout the week.

Fire weather
No fire weather issues are anticipated due to light winds and
high rh values. Dispersion values will be marginally low, but not
quite low enough to warrant a headline at this time.

Hydrology
Localized flooding is possible with stronger storms as rain
chances return to normal. There are no widespread flooding
concerns this period.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
