133 pm edt Sun apr 23 2017

Aviation [through 18z Monday]
Broken line of showers and thunderstorms currently across SW ga
swrd to near ecp with additional development west of this line.

Xpect convection to affect ecp/dhn/aby through the next few hours
as this mass of convection moves eastward. Next is tlh beginning
around 22z then vld beginning around 01z. Convection on station
will last 3-4 hours generally. Flt conds degraded to MVFR
generally with ifr underneath heavier convection. Winds will turn
nwerly as a cold front moves through ending the convection from
west to east.VFR conds to prevail overnight.

Prev discussion [927 am edt]
Near term [through today]
The 11 pm surface analysis showed a cold front extending from a 1010
mb frontal wave in northeast al to southern tx. A few bands of
showers and thunderstorms preceded this front, but were weakening as
they approached western portions of our forecast area. Upper air
data showed a positive-tilt trough from new england through ks, and
at least one short wave trough in the vicinity of the surface cold
front. The hrrr and cam consensus appeared to be handling current
convective trends well, and indicate that most of the rain will
continue to dissipate overnight, then re-develop during the morning
and afternoon hours as the surface cold front translates eastward
across our forecast area. Much of our area will get at least some
much-needed rain today.

The synoptic environment will be marginal for severe storms today,
with 0-6 km bulk shear winds only around 30 kt and MLCAPE values
approaching 1000 j/kg. Our local cam ensemble (ecam) and the ncar
cam ensemble corroborate this ingredients-based assessment, as they
indicate low probabilities of strong updrafts. The main threat will
be a few, marginally-damaging wind gusts from 40 to 60 mph and/or
quarter-size hail. High temperatures will range from the upper 70s
in southeast al and the fl panhandle, to mid to upper 80s from
tallahassee eastward.

Short term [tonight through Tuesday]
The cold front will continue to push through the fa tonight with
most convection ending from west to east by daybreak Monday. The
exception may be the far northeast georgia zones where a few
showers may linger due to wrap around moisture. With the passage
of the cold front and the closed upper low translating eastward
across south georgia on Monday, temperatures will be cooler but
close to seasonal levels for late april. However, as the deep low
pressure system pulls off to the northeast on Tuesday, surface
and upper level ridging quickly build back in along with a return
of above seasonal MAX temperatures. Highs Monday will be in the
mid to upper 70s warming into the lower to mid 80s Tuesday. Lows
will be in the 50s.

Long term [Tuesday night through Sunday]
High pressure surface and aloft will prevail for most of the
upcoming week and next weekend. There will only be a sight chance
for an afternoon shower or thunderstorm by the end of the week
with a better chance late in the weekend. Highs will be in the
80s. Lows will be in the 60s.

Marine
Southwest winds will shift to the northwest and increase to
cautionary levels late today and tonight continuing at these
levels through Monday as a cold front pushes across the local
waters. Winds will generally be in the 10 to 15 knot range Monday
night through the work week as they swing around to become onshore
by Wednesday.

Fire weather
No concerns.

Hydrology
River levels are currently steady. There will be a good chance for
rain tomorrow as a cold front approaches. Rain totals will likely
be under one inch. Otherwise there is only a slight chance for
rain late next week. No flooding concerns.

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.
