area forecast discussion
national weather service tallahassee fl
131 pm edt Thu jun 22 2017

Aviation [through 18z Friday]
Scattered MVFR CIGS in place this afternoon with rain bands from
td cindy are mostly focused over NW fl at the moment. These cigs
should improve toVFR over the next few hours, however, a
reduction to MVFR or ifr CIGS is expected in the early morning
hours on Fri with continued moist low level flow and weak lift.

Gusty winds this afternoon will gradually lower through the
morning hours as the pressure gradient slackens.

Prev discussion [1102 am edt]
Near term [through today]
Surface analysis from this morning shows now tropical depression
cindy moving north near the tx la border, and associated bands of
rain are still coming onshore. Moist air in place over the
southeast us and generally southerly winds have aided convection
on the west side of our forecast area, but guidance still shows
these may dissipate or stay off to the west as we get into the
afternoon hours. Thus have kept pops the same from previous
update. Made slight changes to forecast temperature and humidity
products to better reflect current obs.

Short term [tonight through Saturday]
A deep-layer and drier air aloft will continue across our forecast
area through early Saturday. Pops will be 30% or less, with the
greatest rain chances during the daylight hours. By late Saturday a
deep-layer trough will develop northwest of our forecast area.

Increasing moisture and q-g forcing ahead of this feature will lead
to higher pops around dothan and albany (50%) Saturday afternoon,
with 20-30% pops elsewhere. Temperatures will be near average, with
lows in the 70s and highs in the lower to mid 90s.

Long term [Saturday night through Thursday]
Rain chances will return to near climo levels for most of our region
by Sunday and into early next week with a deep layer trough in the
vicinity. The global are split as to whether or not the accompanying
surface cold front moves far enough south of our forecast area to
bring drier, sinking air (and low pops) to some or all of our
region, so we will blend the different solutions and call for
somewhat below-average pops and temperatures temperatures beyond
Monday, especially from tallahassee north and westward where there
is a greater chance of drying.

Marine
Winds and seas will gradually subside from east to west today, as
tropical storm cindy moves ashore and weakens. However, high surf
and frequent rip currents will continue into Friday. A return to low
winds and seas is expected by this weekend as a surface ridge
develops across the marine area.

Fire weather
No concerns.

Hydrology
Heavy rain remains possible this morning, mainly west of panama city
and dothan. However the threat of flooding is too low for a flood
watch. Fortunately organized heavy rain is unlikely through early
next week, so widespread river flooding flash flooding is not
anticipated.

Despite the recent rains, some of which was locally heavy on Tuesday
and Wednesday, the latest river model guidance does not have any of
our rivers going to flood stage. However, a few sites may get close
along some of the smaller rivers , mainly the shoal river at mossy
head, and bruce creek near red bay.

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.
