area forecast discussion
national weather service tallahassee fl
341 am edt Sat may 27 2017

Near term [through today]
Friday evening's surface and upper air analyses showed a ridge
across much of the southeast from the surface through 500 mb, and
nearly zonal westerlies at 300 mb. Though the troposphere has
moistened over the past 24 hours at tallahassee, it was still too
dry to support any meaningful amount of clouds, and this will
continue through this afternoon. High temperatures will reach the
lower 90s.

Short term [tonight through Monday]
An upper level ridge will build over the eastern CONUS through
Sunday as a broad area of high pressure at the surface gradually
slides southeast of our area. On the western flank of the high,
southwesterly flow will increase moisture closer to normal values
for this time of year (pwat values ranging from 1.2 to 1.5" on
Sunday afternoon) but a lack of forcing and some dry air
persisting at mid-levels will keep our area dry through Sunday. On
Monday, an upper level trough will move into the central conus
with an intensifying jet streak to our north across the ohio river
valley. At the surface a cold front will push southeastward into
al and northern ga by Monday afternoon with instability and deep
layer moisture continuing to increase across our area. With sbcape
around 2000-3000 j kg and effective bulk shear around 30
kts... Showers and thunderstorms that develop southeast of the
front could become organized into multicellular clusters with
possibilities of isolated damaging wind or hail in strongest
storms. The best chance of showers and thunderstorms on Monday
will be across our northwestern area closer to the front.

Temperatures will be warm to hot each day, with highs in the upper
80s to lower 90s inland and lower-mid 80s near the gulf coast.

Lows will range from the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Long term [Monday night through Saturday]
The upper level trough mentioned in the short term discussion will
continue to move eastward into the eastern CONUS on Tuesday and
Wednesday with the core of the upper jet remaining well to our
north across the ohio river valley region. As this occurs, the
relatively weak surface front moving toward our area will
decelerate on Monday night and stall out near over our area from
Tuesday through much of the remainder of the week. This will
provide a focus for scattered showers and thunderstorms each day
with chances maximized during peak heating hours, although
rainfall chances should remain fairly low (mainly 20-30%) with
some mid-level dry air persisting over our area. Moisture pwat
values will remain near normal for this time of year, around 1.5"
across our area each day. Temperatures will also remain near
normal each day, with highs generally ranging from mid 80s to
lower 90s across our area and lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Aviation [through 06z Sunday]
We expect one more day of unlimited CIGS and unrestricted vis
with a dry airmass and high pressure in place. Winds will be s-sw
less than 10 kt, except winds will increase to around 10 kt this
afternoon at kaby and kdhn, and 10 to 14 kt at kecp this afternoon
when the onshore sea breeze develops.

Marine
Southwesterly winds around 10 to 15 knots will persist from today
through Monday with generally light seas around 2 feet or less.

Winds and seas will become even lighter on Tuesday and Wednesday
with variable winds around 5 to 10 knots and seas around 1 foot.

Fire weather
No concerns.

Hydrology
Rivers are expected to remain below flood stage for the next few
days. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible across
portions of our area each day next week, but any heavy rainfall
should be brief and isolated in coverage. Therefore, no significant
river rises are anticipated at this time.

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.
