Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 1004 AM EDT Tue Sep 28 2021

UPDATE.

Patchy fog across portions of southeast AL and the western FL Panhandle is in the process of dissipating. Two minor changes to the forecast: expanded the 15-20 pct PoP east of Jefferson Co in the FL Big Bend for isolated showers and added isolated thunder west of Route 77 in the FL Panhandle in anticipation of more robust updrafts along the sea-breeze front.

PREV DISCUSSION [634 AM EDT].

NEAR TERM [Through Tonight].

Patchy fog across portions of the area overnight should gradually dissipate through mid-morning. Surface high pressure centered just to the east will keep light southeasterly to southerly winds in place today, continuing the gradual return of moisture to the area. A fairly substantial moisture gradient will setup across the FL Panhandle today and tonight as the gradient tightens across the Central and western Gulf Coast in response to a developing low pressure system. This will lead to a surge in deep Gulf moisture across the Central Gulf Coast states, quickly tapering off across the FL Panhandle. A few showers will be possible again today across the western Big Bend and Panhandle along with an increase in cloud cover. Fog development will be possible once again overnight tonight, particularly across the western portions of the area where moisture is expected to be higher.

High temperatures are forecast in the mid to upper 80s with heat indices in the upper 80s to near 90. Low temperatures overnight tonight are forecast in the mid to upper 60s.

SHORT TERM [Wednesday Through Thursday].

Upper-level ridging combined with surface high pressure over the region controls the sensible weather in the short term. This pattern means a continued upward trend in warmth and moisture, pre-dawn patchy fog favoring the western portion of the service area, and little to no rain. The best chances (albeit slight) of precipitation exists over our marine, coastal, and westernmost locations. The latter could see greater potential if impulses from a lifting upper low across the Midwest brushes the Panhandle and southeast AL. This feature is evident on satellite imagery over the Desert SW; further increases in cloud cover are expected as it tracks across the central US. High temperatures are forecast to range from the upper 80s to low 90s, while overnight lows drop to the upper 60s.

LONG TERM [Thursday Night Through Tuesday].

A broad upper trough rotating off the east Canadian maritimes brings a backdoor front across the service area late this week. The boundary is mainly expected to usher in elevated easterly flow and slightly lower dewpoints (low 60s in southwest GA). Low rain chances remain in the forecast through the weekend as surface high pressure suppresses convection via subsidence. The warm Gulf waters and seabreezes may help offset the generally unfavorable environment for precipitation, but any activity is likely to be isolated.

A pattern change begins to unfold on Sunday when a dampening upper trough moves into the lower TN Valley and flattens the ridge overhead. This synoptic shift favors the best rain chances over our western zones early next week. High temperatures are forecast to be in the 80s (lows in the 60s), though Sunday and Monday are expected to be a couple degrees cooler thanks to modest height falls aloft.

AVIATION. [Through 12Z Wednesday]

Fog will likely persist across portions of the area for the next couple of hours. VFR conditions are expected today, with another round of fog possible overnight tonight.

MARINE.

Light winds and low seas will continue to make for favorable boating conditions through Friday, though nocturnal breezes over Apalachee Bay may induce locally choppy waters. Isolated showers are possible mainly in the early-morning hours. Cautionary levels are expected this weekend from elevated easterlies in the wake of a backdoor front.

FIRE WEATHER.

Low dispersions are expected for the next couple of days due to light transport winds. A couple of showers will be possible across the Panhandle today, with dry conditions expected elsewhere. No fire weather concerns are expected.

HYDROLOGY.

Minimal rainfall is still expected over the next several days. A few rivers in the Suwannee basin remain in action stage, but Rock Bluff near Bell (CR 340) is no longer forecast to reach minor flood stage as of this morning.

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.
