Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 302 AM EDT Sat Oct 16 2021

NEAR TERM [Through Tonight].

An approaching upper level trough and associated surface cold front is expected to move through the region today. This will lead to isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms along the cold front starting in the mid morning across SE Alabama and SW Georgia. The front and associated showers are forecast to push east throughout the afternoon and evening across the remainder of the forecast area. Breezy conditions can be expected ahead of and behind the front, and skies are forecast to clear behind the front as well. Temperatures will drop for regions behind the front; however, many will still see temperatures in the low to mid 80s for highs today. Lows overnight will be much cooler; however, as post frontal cold air advection drops temperatures into the low to mid 50s across the region.

SHORT TERM [Sunday Through Monday].

By Sunday morning, high pressure will be firmly in control with plenty of dry air and light northerly winds. It will be on the cool side with morning lows in the 50s so a light jacket is warranted. That high pressure center will venture east from the southern Plains to the Appalachians which will turn our surface winds to the northeast for Monday. Highs this period will be in the mid 70s with plenty of sunshine.

LONG TERM [Monday Night Through Saturday].

High pressure will continue eastward off the Atlantic coast by Thursday with surface winds becoming southeasterly. This will help in moderating temperatures upward a little from highs around 80 Tuesday to the low/mid 80s Thursday. Rain chances do creep up beginning Thursday and once again Friday ahead of the next cold frontal passage on tap Friday/Saturday timeframe.

AVIATION. [Through 06Z Sunday]

VFR conditions are expected to prevail through the remainder of the overnight hours; however, brief visibility restrictions could develop from patchy fog across the region. The largest impact throughout the day will be from an approaching cold front that is currently north and west of the region. A broken line of showers and thunderstorms will be moving from west to east across the region starting mid morning, and will likely impact DHN and ABY during these hours. These showers and thunderstorms will continue eastward, and may lead to reduced conditions briefly before the front passes. This cold front will also bring a wind shift from near southwesterly to northwesterly, and winds are also expected to increase both ahead of and behind the front with gusts up to 20 mph possible. Breezy but VFR conditions are expected through the evening and overnight hours Saturday night.

MARINE.

Cold front will sweep through the coastal waters from west to east through the day with strong northwest winds in its wake. Small craft advisories are in effect beginning later this morning through Sunday afternoon for all Gulf waters. Winds will increase to 20 to 25 knots behind the front and seas will build to 7 feet. Towards Sunday evening, winds and seas will decrease but will remain elevated through much of the upcoming week.

FIRE WEATHER.

Outside of high dispersions across portions of the Florida Big Bend, there are currently no fire weather concerns at this time.

HYDROLOGY.

A weak cold front will bring the chance for showers today with the better chances across the Florida Big Bend. Rainfall amounts will be light and well under an inch of accumulation. Area rivers will continue to recede with no flooding issues on the horizon at this time.

SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT.

Spotter activation is not requested. However, spotters are always encouraged to safely report significant weather conditions when they occur (while following all local, state, and CDC guidelines) by calling the office or tweeting us @NWSTallahassee.
