GMZ800 Synopsis For The Coastal Waters From Bonita Beach To Suwannee River- 815 Pm Est Fri Dec 6 2019
Synopsis.. A weak area of low pressure will move into the gulf on Saturday bringing with it a chance of some showers, especially across the northern waters. This low will weaken and dissipate on Sunday as surface high pressure builds down the eastern seaboard. The high will move east into the atlantic early next week with the ridge axis extending back to the southwest across the central waters with a light southeast to southerly wind flow expected. A cold front will approach the northern waters late Tuesday and then move south through the waters Tuesday night into early Wednesday with some showers along and ahead of it. Poor boating conditions can be expected by mid to late week after the passage of the front as strong northeast winds set in.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 256 AM EST Sat Dec 7 2019

NEAR TERM [Through Today].

A weak area of low pressure just offshore of the Florida panhandle will contribute to mostly cloudy skies across the area today with scattered showers across the southern half of the area. The heaviest rainfall and greater instability is expected to remain just offshore, where a few thunderstorms could occur. High temperatures are expected to be mostly in the 60s.

SHORT TERM [Tonight Through Monday].

Low pressure will weaken and lift northward through the short term. The flow will become southerly to southwesterly from the surface through around 700 mb with moisture advecting northward from the Gulf. Weak upper level vort maxima traversing the area will aid in keeping a chance of mainly light showers across portions of the area through Monday. Temperatures will be on a warming trend with southerly flow.

LONG TERM [Monday Night Through Saturday].

Models are in reasonable agreement on another cold front moving through the area in the Tuesday through Wednesday time frame with a round of showers. Instability and dynamics do not look overly impressive with this system, so thunderstorms were kept out of the forecast. The forecast becomes more uncertain towards the end of the week with some models showing a rather strong system affecting the southeast states with the potential for a Gulf coast low. However, there is not yet strong agreement on the track and strength of this potential system. Should the low track west of the area, we may have a low CAPE/high shear severe weather threat by the end of the week. However, the low could also track over the area or to the south, which would keep us on the cooler side of the system with just widespread rain.

AVIATION.

[Through 06z Sunday] Patchy low clouds will affect the region through this morning with occasional MVFR ceilings expected for most locations. Ceilings are expected to rise to VFR during the afternoon. Scattered showers are expected to be near ECP and TLH in association with a weak area of low pressure over the northeast Gulf.

MARINE.

A weak area of low pressure over the northeast Gulf will keep winds and seas somewhat elevated through Sunday. Winds are expected to veer to southwesterly ahead of a cold front early next week. Winds and seas will likely increase again to advisory levels by the middle of the week.

FIRE WEATHER.

Red flag conditions are not expected for the next several days.

HYDROLOGY.

Rainfall amounts over the next several days are expected to be mainly on the light side. By the end of the week, the possibility exists for a round of heavier rainfall, but flooding is not currently 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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
