Marine Weather and Tides
Panama City, 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
130 am edt Mon jun 18 2018

Aviation [through 06z Tuesday]
Vfr conditions will prevail through the period. Scattered
thunderstorms will develop from 18z Monday through 00z Tuesday
with the highest probability from tlh aby and eastwards. MVFR ifr
conditions are likely in any thunderstorms.

Prev discussion [914 pm edt]
Near term [through tonight]
The seabreeze and a convergent axis across central al ga will be the
primary forcing mechanisms for convection this afternoon. With
relatively light steering flow, the seabreeze will most likely be
confined to north fl. An upper level wave is resulting in a weak
surface reflection through central al and ga, with outflow from
convection to our north triggering new storms in our region. Expect
a gradual diminishing of shower and thunderstorm activity after
sunset, with lows in the lower 70s.

Short term [Monday through Tuesday night]
Through the short term period, weak mid level ridging will build
across the southeastern us. There is some differences this model
cycle with whether there will be an influx of drier air from the
east to really diminish thunderstorm chances. In any event, the
overall steering flow suggests a light and variable sea breeze
pattern which tends to produce about 30-40 percent pops each day.

With the euro a little drier than the GFS (which was drier
yesterday), will trend the forecast slightly toward the lower side
of climatology for this time of year. Afternoon temperatures will
also be a little warmer, given less convection, with pockets of
mid 90s possible each day.

Long term [Wednesday through Sunday]
Overall, the weak ridging looks to hold on through Thursday, but
then a trough moving through the mid mississippi river valley on
Friday should result in some weakening of the ridge at least into
Saturday, which will favor some increase in afternoon evening rain
chances. By Sunday, ridging is anticipated to build over the gulf
of mexico, shifting the bulk of any afternoon showers and storms
to the northern and eastern portions of the forecast area.

Temperatures through the period should be in the low to mid 90s
during the day and in the lower 70s at night.

Marine
Winds and seas will remain low through the next several days. Some
localized enhancements near the coast each afternoon can be
expected with the daily sea breeze.

Fire weather
No fire weather concerns.

Hydrology
A typical summertime pattern is expected, which will keep any
widespread rainfall amounts low. However, as the steering flow
becomes weaker by the first of the week, isolated heavy rainfall
is possible from stronger thunderstorms.

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.
