area forecast discussion
national weather service tallahassee fl
852 am edt Thu may 25 2017

Update
Removed slight pop this morning for the SE big bend as much drier
air has swept across the entire area. No other changes expected.

Prev discussion [637 am edt]
Near term [through today]
A deep upper level trough will gradually move eastward across our
area today with westerly northwesterly flow in its wake bringing
progressively drier air into our region. Dry conditions are
anticipated throughout the day. Westerly winds will increase to
around 10-15 mph during the afternoon with a few gusts around 20
mph possible. Cool air advection in the wake of the cold front
will lead to very pleasant temperatures for late may in our area,
with morning lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s and highs ranging
from the upper 70s to lower 80s.

Short term [tonight through Saturday]
Deep layer ridging will build in across the area, bringing a quiet
start to the weekend. Overnight temperatures will be cooler than
average tonight and about average tomorrow night, with lows in the
50s tonight and in the 60s tomorrow night. Highs will warm back up
to the mid to upper 80s Friday, upper 80s to low 90s Saturday, with
low 80s along the immediate coast both days.

Long term [Saturday night through Thursday]
Upper level troughing will move into the great lakes early next
week, developing a frontal system which will stall and then dissipate
to our north by mid-week. This system will bring a return for 20-40%
chances for showers and thunderstorms to the area starting Monday,
with the highest chances over our northwestern zones. Highs will be
mostly in the upper 80s to low 90s and lows will be around 70.

Aviation [through 12z Friday]
Vfr conditions will prevail throughout the period across our area
under decreasing mid-high level clouds. Light winds mainly from
the west will increase during the late morning and afternoon
Thursday with gusts of 15-20 kts possible. Winds will decrease
below 10 kts around sunset and remain westerly as clear skies
prevail.

Marine
A small craft advisory will remain in effect through the late
morning. Small craft operators are encouraged to continue to
exercise caution through the remainder of the today as westerly
winds gradually fall to below 15 knots by this evening. Winds and
seas should remain light through the rest of the period.

Fire weather
High dispersion values are possible this afternoon along with
decreasing rh values as drier air moves into our area. However, rh
should still remain above critical thresholds with minimum values
around 30-40 percent today. Therefore, no red flag conditions are
anticipated.

Hydrology
Most of the area has picked up about 2-4" of rain over the last
week. As much of the area has been parched, particularly south-
central ga and the fl big bend, this rainfall has been welcome
relief. No river flooding is occuring or forecast to occur. The
highest rise is along the kinchafoonee creek near dawson, which is
currently in action stage and will rise to around 6.5 ft this
morning before falling.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
