New UPDATE, MARINE

UPDATE
Issued at 1021 AM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Minor adjustments were made to account for current trends.
Otherwise, the forecast is on track for today.

NEAR TERM
(Today and tonight)
Issued at 340 AM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Surface high pressure will continue slowly sliding east of the FL Peninsula bringing benign conditions to the forecast area. Some high clouds will overspread the area this afternoon as a result of some moisture streaming in within the predominantly northwest flow aloft with dry and pleasant conditions throughout the entirety of the day. this morning and tomorrow morning, surface winds will become calm as we decouple from the boundary layer enabling some moistening to occur, especially across our FL Panhandle and SE AL counties. This may be conducive to fog development in the morning hours, eroding quickly after sunrise with better mixing as the inversion erodes above the surface. Locally dense fog appears possible in our FL Panhandle counties. High temperatures today are forecast to reach the upper 70s to mid 80s with overnight lows in the mid to upper 50s going into Tuesday.

SHORT AND LONG TERM
(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 340 AM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Ridging is in place to start Tuesday as an upper low progresses northeast from the central Plains to the Great Lakes vicinity.
This will cause the ridging to flatten out with flow becoming more zonal Wednesday and into the weekend. Upstream convection will help filter clouds into the area off and on mid to late week.
Despite this, highs will be well into the 80s and perhaps a few low 90s along and south of I-10 and into the Florida Big Bend. A weak cold front may make it into the southeast US Friday but appears to weaken before reaching the Gulf coast. Another cold front makes a run at our service area late in the weekend and may have better success clearing the area. All and all, sensible weather is favorable this period, not expecting much in the way of precipitation at this time, and increasing clouds will not have much effect on temperatures hitting well into the 80s and low 90s after morning lows in the 60s.

AVIATION
(12Z TAFS)
Issued at 652 AM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Currently, LIFR CIGs are being observed at KECP with 3SM visibilities. At KDHN, visibilities have not dropped yet but it remains possible this morning. All sites will become VFR for the remainder of the day following 14z. Tomorrow morning, patchy fog is once again possible at KDHN and KECP, though location remains somewhat uncertain at this time.

MARINE
Issued at 1021 AM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Buoys offshore this morning were reporting light southeast winds and seas less than two feet, with a dominant period of around five seconds.

From CWF Synopsis...Favorable marine conditions are expected this week with high pressure dominating. Southeast to south winds will be the rule through much of the week. A clocking of winds to the west and northwest appears possible by late week as a series of weak frontal boundaries drift into the southeast United States.
Rain chances are low through this week.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 340 AM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Dry weather will persist through this forecast package, though moisture will increase across the region as we pivot to southeasterly flow today. Today, elevated transport winds and mixing heights will yield generally good dispersions across the area with locally elevated dispersions across our northernmost SE AL and SW GA counties. MinRH will be in the 20-30% range inland with critical values possible in our northernmost SW GA counties. Elevated transport winds will carry over through the next few days with generally good dispersions across the area with pockets of high dispersions areawide. MinRH will continue to rebound through the week as southerly flow pushes more moisture into the region.
Additionally, patchy fog will be possible through the week.

HYDROLOGY
Issued at 340 AM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

An areal flood warning remains for Leon County for the areas of Capitola, Chaires, and Baum of northeast Tallahassee. County emergency management reports hazardous standing water and several roadways remain closed.
