area forecast discussion
national weather service tallahassee fl
935 pm edt Sat jul 21 2018
A cluster of strong to severe storms are currently marching south
through our northern forecast area this evening. This cluster
should remain active for at least the next couple hours with
increased low level shear and slightly warmer temperatures
facilitating the continued activity for at least the next few
hours. A corresponding severe thunderstorm watch has been extended
south to around the florida alabama and florida georgia border
through 1 am edt. Grids have been updated to reflect current
Prev discussion [745 pm edt]
Near term [through tonight]
Most of the area has cleared out from the severe thunderstorms this
afternoon and severe weather is not anticipated across the majority
of the region through the evening. The only possible exception could
be in extreme northern portions of the forecast area and north of
dothan albany. There is still enough instability in the atmosphere
in these locations and a little bit better forcing aloft for a few
thunderstorms to develop through the evening hours. Severe weather
is not anticipated overnight but we could a few isolated
thunderstorms develop overnight as depicted by the multiple hi-res
models. Confidence is fairly low in this scenario and the output is
questionable considering how far off they were on the development of
the convection this afternoon.
Short term [Sunday through Monday night]
An anomalous upper low (by nearly 4 standard deviation), will
remain in place across the southeastern conus, moving atop north
florida on Monday. The greatest forcing for ascent, and surface
based forcing (a frontal boundary), locally, will exist on
Sunday. Associated with the upper low, abnormally strong deep
layer shear will combine with summertime instability to yield a
higher than normal threat for severe weather. The storm prediction
center has kept our much of our region in a slight risk for
Sunday afternoon. The main hazard will be widespread damaging
winds, though the threat for an isolated tornado cannot be ruled
out. With the upper low meandering over the region on Monday, the
potential for some showers and thunderstorms forced from aloft
will be possible, though the severe threat should be low to none.
See rainfall forecast information in the hydrology discussion
Long term [Tuesday through Saturday]
The anomalous upper low will gradually fill through mid-week, with
a more typical summertime pattern returning by the end of the week
into the weekend. Expect higher than normal pops through Thursday,
with more typical rain chances to end the week. Highs will start
around 90 degrees on Tuesday, gradually increasing into the lower
90s by the end of the week.
Aviation [through 00z Monday]
A strong MCS is moving in from the north and could produce gusty
winds and localized ifr conditions at aby vld later this evening,
but uncertainty is high as this moves southeast. Aside from that,
patchy fog is possible overnight at our inland terminals , but
confidence is low so did not mention in the tafs.VFR conditions
will prevail but another round of thunderstorms will bring
MVFR ifr conditions at times to area terminals on Sunday.
Unseasonably strong wsw winds are forecast to begin overnight and
last through tomorrow night associated with a frontal system.
Additionally, severe thunderstorms will be possible starting again
tomorrow afternoon. Winds should fall below headline levels by
Monday, with seas a little slower to subside.
Red flag conditions will not occur over the next several days with
moisture expected to remain high across the area.
Widespread average rain amounts of 1-3 inches will be possible
across north florida and extreme south georgia over the next 48
hours. Most of this rain will occur on Sunday, with isolated
higher amounts of 3-6" possible. The threat for flash flooding
remains low due to the fact that storms will likely be
progressive, though nuisance flooding in urban and rural areas
will be possible. While there have been some rises along area
rivers today (especially the most responsive ones), river levels
remain below action stage. Should some of the same areas receive
heavy rain tomorrow, action stage would be possible along some

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
