824 pm edt Thu apr 25 2019

Near term [through tonight]
The cold front is currently (8:30 pm edt) located over central ms
and new orleans. Strong to severe thunderstorms will move through
the region this evening and overnight. Instability is fairly low
around 500 to 1000 j kg mainly in the fl panhandle. Deep layer shear
is high around 50 knots. These storms may intensify as a shortwave
trough moves through around midnight. A tornado watch is in effect
until 1 am edt for most of the fl panhandle. Damaging winds will be
the primary threat but a few isolated tornadoes are also possible.

Prev discussion [742 pm edt]
Short term [Friday night through Saturday night]
Upper trough responsible for pushing the cold front through the
region will lift out quickly to the northeast late Friday. Largely
zonal flow will take its place through Saturday with dry
conditions expected. Airmass behind the front is not a whole lot
cooler than in front, so temperatures will remain mild on
Saturday. Expect to start the day in the lower to mid 50s before
rising to the lower to mid 80s in the afternoon.

Long term [Sunday through Thursday]
Upper ridge is forecast to build over the southeastern states by
early next week. This will keep the weather dry and warm. May see
some 90 degree high temperatures creep into the area by Monday and
Tuesday.

Aviation
[through 00z Saturday]
a line of strong to severe storms will move through the region
tonight. MVFR CIGS are likely overnight and in the morning hours.

Brief periods of ifr conditions are possible.VFR conditions will
return in the late morning hours. Rain will be moving out of the
region by sunrise.

Marine
Winds will increase to exercise caution levels overnight as a
front crosses the coastal waters. Winds could locally be much
higher in and near the showers and thunderstorms. Conditions will
improve into Saturday, with light winds and low seas expected
through early next week.

Fire weather
Rain is expected tonight. Much drier air will move into the region
by Saturday. Relative humidity values will be in the 40 percent
range tomorrow and in the 20-35 percent range on Saturday. Red flag
conditions are not expected since winds will be light Saturday. High
dispersions over 75 are expected tomorrow.

Hydrology
The apalachicola river near blountstown continues to slowly fall.

Elsewhere, rivers and streams are generally steady or falling.

Rainfall amounts tonight into Friday will range from less than
half an inch in the north to around 1.5 inches along the coast.

These amounts may cause some temporary rises in the smaller
basins, but significant rises are not expected.

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.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
