Marine Weather and Tides
Eastpoint, FL

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

area forecast discussion
national weather service tallahassee fl
824 am edt Mon may 21 2018

Update
Active morning across portions of southwest wakulla and northeast
franklin counties with a slow moving feeder band of convection
over the area. Dual-pol radar estimates from tlh are a bit
underdone and gauge measurements show in excess of 9 inches of
rain along highway 319 just south of sopchoppy. Flash flood
guidance was reached in sopchoppy around 8 am edt with mrms
showing 130 percent of flash flood guidance just west of the town
with heavy rain continuing.

Elsewhere, a weak surface low was apparent south of panama city
based on the wind obs, and this is expected to move slowly
northwestward today. Convection will fill in across the area this
afternoon with daytime heating. Heavy rainfall will be the main
threat.

Prev discussion [624 am edt]
Near term [through today]
A trough of low pressure at the surface will remain present across
our area into the northeastern gulf through the remainder of the
day. Currently (as of 2 am et) bands of showers continue to slowly
propagate northwestward across our area. Most of this activity will
be light to moderate with little to no instability across most
inland areas. However, a heavier band is currently moving inland
into wakulla and southern liberty counties, and some training could
occur across these areas. Pw values around 2" in this area supports
heavy rain potential as well. Latest hrrr output has shown 3-6
inches of rain possible from this band over the next several hours.

These areas have very high flash flood guidance (generally 4 to 6
inches over 3 hours); however, we will continue to monitor this
situation in case particularly heavy rain totals develop.

After a brief lull in showers isolated thunderstorms later this
morning, instability will increase and deep layer moisture will
remain in place. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will become
widespread again this afternoon, although any heavy rain is expected
to be short-lived with these storms. High coverage of showers storms
along with overcast skies will keep high temperatures down again
today, with highs ranging from the upper 70s to lower 80s across our
area.

Short term [tonight through Wednesday]
In the upper levels a weak trough is over the region until Wednesday
morning. At the surface a weak pressure gradient is in place but
southerly flow continues to bring tropical moisture into the region.

Pops will remain elevated throughout the forecast period. The best
chance for showers and thunderstorms will be in the afternoon and
evening hours. Skies will be mostly cloudy. Lows will be near 70.

Highs will be in the lower 80s on Tuesday and mid 80s on
Wednesday.

Long term [Wednesday night through Monday]
In the upper levels a low is expected to develop over the gulf on
Thursday night. At the surface a low is expected to develop over the
gulf on Thursday night. Another influx of tropical moisture is
expected this weekend. Pops will be elevated even at night. At this
time the highest rain chances are Saturday and Sunday. Scattered
showers and thunderstorms are expected on Thursday and Friday. Lows
will be near 70. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.

Aviation [through 12z Tuesday]
MVFR ifr CIGS continue across our area this morning as low clouds
prevail. As clouds lift during the morning,VFR CIGS should
return during the next few hours. A band of showers and
thunderstorms could briefly impact tlh with reduced visibility
this morning. Chances of showers storms will increase at all
terminals during the afternoon with brief visibility reductions
possible. Showers and thunderstorms should end this evening.

Marine
Moderate southeasterly winds are expected today and tomorrow.

Wednesday and Thursday winds will be fairly light before becoming
moderate again on Friday. Seas will be 2 to 3 feet this week. A wet
pattern will be in place this week especially this weekend.

Fire weather
With ample moisture and light winds across our area, no fire weather
concerns are anticipated through the next several days.

Hydrology
A wet pattern will be in place this week. Three to five inches of
rain is predicted for most locations over the next seven days. Most
local rivers are still below action stage. Rain totals will increase
this weekend and river levels will be rising. River gauges will need
to be closely monitored. Flash flooding cannot be ruled out
especially this weekend. Although any flooding will most likely be
nuisance flooding of low-lying areas and ponding on roadways.

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.

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.
