GMZ800 Synopsis For The Coastal Waters From Bonita Beach To Suwannee River- 821 Pm Est Thu Dec 12 2019
Synopsis..Low pressure will develop over the northeastern gulf of mexico tonight and move northeast through Friday, bringing showers and a chance for a few Thunderstorms. Another cold front will move through the area Saturday, turning winds to the northwest for a day, possibly near advisory or cautionary criteria. High pressure then quickly builds in for Sunday, with light winds. There is some potential for sea fog to develop over the waters mainly north of tampa bay on Friday night and early Saturday, possibly lingering into Saturday afternoon, but this will continue to be Monitored over the next day or so.

AVIATION. [Through 06Z Saturday]

Warm front lifting northward through TAF sites early this morning will provide widespread LIFR conds with CIGS less than 500 ft and VSBYS in light to moderate rainfall, conds will slowly improve from south to north around 12z, with lifting CIGS/VSBYS at GNV/SGJ, then JAX metro TAFs by 13-14z, while SSI stays socked in near the warm front through the day. Have left out mention of thunder until model suggested line of showers and storms pushes in from the west around 18z and lasts through the afternoon hours and lifted CIGS some into the MVFR range during the slight daytime heating south of the warm front at the FL TAF sites. Behind any convection expect conds to deteriorate again into IFR/LIFR with light rain, drizzle and fog by the 02-06z time frame. Will be quite a 24 hour period at the TAF sites of lower than normal conds.

PREV DISCUSSION [910 PM EST].

NEAR TERM [Through Tonight].

Into the afternoon, a coastal trough/pseudo warm front will continue to develop along the FL Atlantic coast. As this inverted trough amplifies, it will weaken the local pressure gradient along the NE FL coast so expect a gradual decrease of the winds. As the coastal trough forms along the NE FL coast this afternoon, plentiful low level moisture combined with onshore convergence under SW flow aloft will start a coastal rainfall event that is expected to increase in intensity overnight as a yet another strong short wave trough overrides this activity from the GOMEX with locally heavy rainfall potential. Stable conditions prevail today so thunderstorms are not expected, but a low chance of tstorms will develop tonight and and trailing the lift warm front, mainly over the Atlantic waters and possibly the immediate coast.

Cloudy skies and cool NE flow will trend temperatures below normal across SE GA where highs will only reach the mid/upper 50s. Temperatures moderate southward across NE FL to warm into the low/mid 60s near the I-10 corridor and along the Atlantic coast, to upper 60s possibly near 70 southward and inland toward Gainesville and Ocala where there will be the potential for some cloud breaks.

SHORT TERM [Friday Through Saturday Night].

Strong isentropic lift ahead of the approaching inverted trough will likely work to keep low level cloud cover in place through Friday morning, keeping us stable, but also soggy. The approaching inverted trough however, will continue to deepen Friday as it sweeps eastward thanks to an upper level shortwave punching into the northern Gulf waters by the afternoon hours. As this deepening system swings eastward towards us Friday afternoon, a coastal warm front will lift through the FL Peninsula into southern GA and advect in warm, moist air, destabilizing us enough to see thunderstorms in NE FL, possibly into SE GA as well. Model PW values over 1.5" and moderate mid-level lapse rates (around 6 C/km) suggest good rain production along/ahead of this warm front, so its forward speed will affect how much we accumulate (the slower it lifts, the more rain we'll get), but latest forecast estimates are around 1-2" along coastal NE FL and into SE GA, less than 1" further south/west.

As we move into the evening and overnight hours and the deepening low and its associated cold front begin to near our western border/the Suwannee River, deep layer (0-6km) shear will increase, posing a marginal threat for severe weather. In the afternoon hours, when we'd have more instability to tap into, deep layer shear will be around 30-35 kts. This wouldn't lead to a lot of organized storms, but could allow for some gusty afternoon thunderstorms. As the low pressure system moves eastward in the overnight hours, these shear values will increase to 40-50 kts. Enhanced lift from divergence aloft may be enough to develop a few more potent storms overnight.

The cold front will move across the area Saturday morning, then high pressure will begin to build over the area Saturday afternoon and night. Temperatures will be near to slightly above normal, with highs Saturday in the upper 60s to low 70s and lows Saturday night in the low-mid 40s.

LONG TERM [Sunday Through Thursday].

A ridge of high pressure will continue to build over the area early next week, giving us warmer temperatures (peaking in the upper 60s to mid 70s) and a short break from rain chances. On Monday night, another upper level shortwave trough will push into the Srn Plains, developing a cold front out in the MS Valley. This cold front will move into the Southeast and TN Valley on Tuesday, reaching our area Tues evening/night. Behind this cold front, much a colder, drier air will advect into the area. Highs Wed and Thurs behind the front will be in the mid 50s to low 60s and overnight lows will be in the 30s, with low 40s possible in north- central FL and along the coast.

MARINE.

Wind gusts to 35 knots offshore have subsided, but waves will be slower to subside and the tight pressure gradient in place is still enough to bring winds of 15 to 20 knots near shore and 20 to 25 knots offshore through the night. Though these winds will subside by tomorrow afternoon, showers and thunderstorms are expected to be on and off through Saturday morning, some of which could bring gusty winds. The cold front behind these storms will move through Saturday morning, which will cause winds and waves to surge again. Another small craft advisory may be needed this weekend, at least for the offshore waters. After that, high pressure will build in over the coastal waters early next week.

FIRE WEATHER.

Light transport winds and low and mixing heights Friday will lead to low daytime dispersions across the area. A fair amount of rainfall is anticipated today and tomorrow with a very wet and unsettled pattern in place ahead of an approaching cold front. The cold front will pass through Saturday morning and then colder, drier air will filter into the area. Not dry enough, however, for red flag conditions.

HYDROLOGY.

Strong northeast flow coinciding with high tides caused a few of our gauges along the St. Johns River to peak at/near Action Stage this morning. The winds have continued to gradually lower this afternoon, so coastal flood statement that was in effect was allowed to expire. Tomorrow, as a coastal warm front lifts through NE Fl into Srn GA, heavier showers along and north of the front may bring around 1-2" of rainfall. This could lead to localized flooding in urban areas and area with poor drainage, but no widespread flooding is anticipated.

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.

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