national weather service tallahassee fl
131 am edt Thu may 23 2019

Aviation
[through 06z Friday]
winds generally less than 10 knots expected at the TAF sites with
vfr conditions. Sct050 may go broken briefly this afternoon before
diminishing with sunset. A few showers may pop up during the
afternoon but are too isolated to include in the tafs.

Prev discussion [938 pm edt]
Near term [through tonight]
Isolated to scattered showers (and possibly a rumble of thunder) are
possible this afternoon mostly east of tallahassee and albany where
better moisture combines with some limited seabreeze convergence.

Expecting shower activity to decay around sunset with loss off
daytime heating. Winds turn easterly overnight as remnants of the
atlantic seabreeze move through the region.

Besides some patchy fog in our east zones (near i-75), conditions
will remain quiet overnight with low temperatures in the upper-
60s near-70.

Short term [Thursday through Friday night]
Heat will build through the period with a degree or two of warming
each afternoon. The warming will be associated with steadily
rising heights as the upper ridge builds. Any diurnal convection
will be isolated at best.

Long term [Saturday through Wednesday]
Heat will continue to be the big story into next week as
anomalously strong upper ridge remains overhead. High temps away
from the coast will be at or above than 100 degrees Saturday
through Monday. Afternoon heat index values will peak between 102
and 106 degrees. This is below our heat advisory criteria, but
given how early in the season the heat is occurring, and that it's
a holiday weekend with many outdoor activities, a heat advisory
will likely be needed. This is especially true in areas affected
by michael where the size of the heat-vulnerable population is
larger than normal. There may be a slight cooldown late in the
period as the upper ridge flattens a bit but temperatures will
remain well above normal. Little to nothing in the way of rainfall
is expected.

Marine
Weak onshore flow will persist through the forecast period with
generally light winds and seas. No rain is forecast through the
period.

Fire weather
Rising temperatures and next to no chances of rain over the course
of at least the next week will be something to monitor closely with
regards to fuels curing and rising fire potential.

Hydrology
Little to no rainfall is expected over the next seven days.

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.

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.
