Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 700 PM EST Sun Jan 16 2022

AVIATION. [Through 00Z Tuesday]

Widespread MVFR cigs and gusty west winds are the primary concerns overnight. An expansive strato-Cu deck decreases from west to east tmrw morning, paving the way for VFR conds in the second half of the TAF period. However, breezy winds stick around while gradually turning out of the NW up to around 13 kts (gusts in excess of 20 kts).

PREV DISCUSSION [344 PM EST].

NEAR TERM [Through Monday].

A strengthening low center east of Atlanta continues to bring gusty winds this afternoon, with recent gusts near 40 mph near Thomasville and Moultrie. Meanwhile, satellite imagery shows a large field of strato-cu extending all the way back through MS. This will keep the evening cloudy, but then large-scale subsidence will start to take hold overnight. This will lead to clearing skies on Monday morning.

Winds will not be as strong on Monday, but it will still be breezy. With highs only in the 50s, this will add a bite to the air in the form of wind chills.

Otherwise, gale-force westerlies across the Northeast Gulf will start to diminish later this evening. Dangerous high surf will continue along southwest-facing beaches through tonight, but surf will drop sufficiently by sunrise Monday morning to let the High Surf headlines expire.

For wrap-up thoughts on coastal flooding, see the Hydro section.

SHORT TERM [Monday Night Through Tuesday Night].

Cooler, drier conditions are expected through the short term as high pressure slides eastward across the region. With subsidence in place we can expect winds to weaken and become light overnight Monday into Tuesday, leading to potential frost Tuesday morning. Expect overnight lows in the upper 20s to low 30s with daytime highs in the mid to upper 50s.

LONG TERM [Wednesday Through Sunday].

Throughout the long term a surge of cP air moves south across the eastern half of CONUS allowing the free and unobstructed passage of several shortwaves that dig themselves into troughs. The first one of which is will move across the eastern CONUS on Wednesday. With high pressure over the Atlantic, southerly flow returns ahead of this trough contributing to an increase in moisture with PWAT in the 1.2 to 1.5 inch range. However, instability seems to be lacking with this event, thus robust convection isn't currently anticipated. A brief dry period is expected after this trough until Saturday evening when a potential Gulf low moves across the Gulf Coast states.

This second disturbance is may follow the first one in that instability will be lacking, but moisture will be present. However, this system may also have moderate shear as a better defined low level jet appears to set up across the region. There's uncertainty with this event and it's potential impacts, be sure to check back for updates.

Expect overnight lows to generally be in the upper 20s and 30s with the exception being Thursday and Friday morning as temps warm up slight ahead of the cold front. Expect daytime highs to warm slightly over the next few days reaching the low to mid 60s by Thursday, followed by a drop into the 40s after Friday with highs struggling to reach 50 degrees through Sunday.

MARINE.

A strong and strengthening low pressure center will continue to move from Georgia into the Carolinas this afternoon and evening, with gale- force westerlies continuing over the northeast Gulf until the low exits later this evening. Strong northwesterly breezes will continue on Monday morning, then decrease quickly on Monday night as high pressure passes directly across the waters. Southerlies will prevail on Wednesday and Thursday, as high pressure moves well off to the east and low pressure gathers over the Lower Mississippi Valley.

FIRE WEATHER.

Winds will decrease tonight. High pressure will move across the districts on Monday, leading to low mixing heights and weakening transport winds. This will lead to low afternoon dispersion values. Otherwise, a cool and somewhat dry air mass will be in place through Tuesday. The next chance of rain will come on Wednesday night and Thursday.

HYDROLOGY.

Freshwater: After last nights' rainfall, conditions are expected to be relatively dry through the next seven days with WPC QPF indicating up to one inch of precip accumulation. Mainstem rivers are currently rising and will be in action stage over the next several days, however, river are expected to remain within their banks.

Saltwater: Recently ended the Coastal Flood Warnings around Apalachee Bay. We were fortunate that surge values peaked a couple hours off high tide and Apalachicola, while surge peaked during low tide from Wakulla to Dixie Counties. This kept coastal flooding in the minor category for the early morning high tides, with no criteria met during the early-mid afternoon round of high tides. Surge values continue to drop, and the coastal flooding threat has ended.

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.
