Aviation
[through 18z Friday]
a period of MVFR CIGS is possible at dhn and aby overnight.

Otherwise,VFR should prevail through the period with light rain
moving in from the northwest by Friday afternoon at dhn and aby.

Winds will be light.

Prev discussion [920 am est]
Near term [through today]
Weak ridge of surface high pressure will remain in place through the
period with zonal flow aloft. As a result, quiet weather is expected
again today, with temperatures warming into the mid 60s across the
area.

Short term [tonight through Sunday]
Upper level pattern begins to shift by the week's end, with slight
chances of showers returning to the wiregrass Friday as a weak mid-
level impulse traverses the region. The noticeable pattern shift
will come on Saturday afternoon and evening, as a potent storm
system approaches the region from the west. Operational guidance
remains consistent regarding the timing of this system, as the
greatest chances for showers and storms are expected late Saturday
evening into the overnight hours. Given the expected progressive
nature of this system, flooding will not be a threat. However, a
strong thunderstorm or two cannot be ruled out at this time. While
instability will be a limiting factor with this system, cape
values of 250-500 j kg is sufficient to support storms capable of
yielding wind damage given 850mb winds of 50 kts+. While there are
still some details that need to pan out for this to occur,
attention is warranted as this system approaches. Expect showers
and storms to clear the region on Sunday, with noticeably cooler
conditions in place. Highs on Sunday will range from the upper 40s
to mid 50s.

Long term [Sunday night through Thursday]
The coldest air of the season will be felt on Sunday night as
temperatures plummet into the upper 20s to low 30s across the
region. Be sure to take care of the 4 ps: people, pets, plants, and
pipes! Quiet weather will resume with temperatures moderating
through mid-week prior to another frontal system approaching the
region by the Wednesday Thursday timeframe.

Marine
Relatively calm conditions will persist across coastal waters
through Friday. The approach of a storm system this weekend will
yield an increase in winds and seas through the weekend, with
advisory level conditions possible. Showers and thunderstorms
expected Saturday night through Sunday before calmer conditions
resume on Monday.

Fire weather
Outside of possible low dispersions across portions of north florida
this afternoon, hazardous fire weather conditions are not expected
through the next several days. Wetting rains will return to the
region late Saturday into Sunday.

Hydrology
Area rivers continue to recede across the region. The next
appreciable chance for accumulating rainfall comes Saturday evening
into Sunday, as another frontal system pushes through the area.

Rainfall totals will generally range from 0.75 to 1.5 inches across
the area, limiting the flood threat.

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.
