804 pm edt Mon apr 23 2018

Update
No significant changes to the previous forecast appear necessary.

Isolated showers and thunderstorms in irwin and ben hill counties
will move out of the area in the next couple of hours, and we
expect dry conditions for the remainder of the night.

Aviation
[through 00z Wednesday]VFR conditions are expected to prevail
through the period with westerly winds around 10 knots.

Prev discussion [300 pm edt]
Near term [through tonight]
The slow moving cold front is still lingering across the western
portion of our forecast area. Some isolated showers and
thunderstorms have formed out ahead of this and are marching
north. Some gusty winds and small hail are the most expected out
of these storms today. The already limited activity will be
tempered from west to east throughout the evening as the front
continues to slowly shift east.

Short term [Tuesday through Wednesday night]
Upper low will finally swing through the southeastern states on
Tuesday. There might be just enough deep layer moisture and lift
on the southern fringe of the low to spark a few light showers
during the day across the northern portion of the forecast area.

Thereafter, a drier airmass will move into the region for
Wednesday with no rain expected. Temperatures will be near
seasonal normals, with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s, and
lows in the mid to upper 50s.

Long term [Thursday through Monday]
A fast-moving and potent mid-level shortwave will approach the
region on Thursday, bringing another chance for rain. Guidance
currently is not indicating much instability ahead of this
feature. However, with the strength of the shortwave and
associated mid-level flow, will need to monitor for the potential
for isolated strong storms.

Beyond this system, the pattern appears to shift to a more typical
late-spring setup, with ridge building into the eastern portion of
the country. This should lead to drier and warmer weather as we
move into the weekend and early next week.

Marine
Winds and seas will slowly decrease tonight with conditions
expected to remain below headline criteria through the rest of the
week.

Fire weather
Although dispersion values will likely exceed critical thresholds
this afternoon and early evening, rh values will remain over 50
percent across our area today. Relatively moist conditions will
persist through the next several days, so no fire weather concerns
are anticipated throughout this period.

Hydrology
Only minor rises on area rivers are expected following Sunday's
rainfall, with no river flooding concerns 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.

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.
