New UPDATE

UPDATE
Issued at 830 PM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

For the latest NE FL and SE GA Daily Key Messages please visit: https:// www.weather.gov/media/jax/briefings/nws-jax-briefing.pdf

Current forecast mainly on track. Adjusted temperatures up slightly inland and dewpoint temperatures down to reflect current conditions. Cloud coverage will continue to increase overnight but should clear out by late morning. High pressure conditions still dominate the area will bring low temperatures to the middle to upper 50s to low 60s and mostly sunny skies Monday.

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 204 PM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

Afternoon surface analysis depicts high pressure (1023 millibars)
centered over the FL peninsula
Aloft
stout ridging prevails over the Bay of Campeche (southwestern Gulf of Mexico), while deep troughing continues to progress well offshore of New England and the Mid-Atlantic states. This weather pattern was keeping a deep and dry northwesterly flow pattern in place, with a weak shortwave trough embedded within this flow pattern located upstream from our area across the lower Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys. The very dry and subsident air mass in place was resulting in sunny skies area-wide as of 18Z, with temperatures rising through the upper 70s and lower 80s at inland locations, while the inland moving Atlantic sea breeze was keeping coastal temperatures generally in the mid to upper 70s. Dewpoints were crashing through the 40s at most locations.

NEAR TERM
(through Tonight)
Issued at 204 PM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

A loosening local pressure gradient will allow the Gulf and Atlantic sea breezes to gradually progress inland this afternoon.
Otherwise, a weak shortwave trough located upstream of our region will dive southeastward this evening, with mid and high altitude cloudiness increasing early this evening through the overnight hours as this feature progresses across southeast GA, reaching the coast towards sunrise. A dry low level air mass will otherwise remain in place, with winds decoupling at inland locations after sunset, while a light south to southwesterly breeze prevails overnight at coastal locations. Strong subsidence beneath a building deep-layer ridge over our area will allow lows to fall to the low and mid 50s at most inland locations towards sunrise on Monday, with lows at coastal locations in the upper 50s to around 60.

SHORT TERM
(Monday through Tuesday night)
Issued at 204 PM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

High pressure conditions will continue into the beginning of the week with winds shifting to become more onshore by Tuesday as high pressure gradually moves eastward resulting in more onshore flow and increased cloud cover. High temperatures for the beginning of the week will be in the mid to upper 80s over inland areas and in the upper 70s and lower 80s along the coast.
Overnight low temperatures will range within the mid 50s and lower 60s.

LONG TERM
(Wednesday through Saturday)
Issued at 204 PM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

Increased chances for showers are possible for the forecast area towards the latter part of the week as long range forecast models show the high pressure drifting southward with a potential for bouts of short wave instability moving through the region for the latter portion of the forecast period. Potential for isolated diurnal storms to develop during this period in association with the sea breeze. Temperatures will be well above the seasonal average during this period with high temps expected to rise into the lower 90s by the end of the week.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 748 PM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

VFR conditions continue at all locations for the forecast period as high pressure ridging envelopes the region. An increase in mid and upper level cloud coverage will occur over night but will begin to clear by morning. The southeasterly sea breeze will continue to influence SSI, JAX, CRG, VQQ, and SGJ until about 03Z where winds will begin to die down before picking up after sunrise. The Atlantic sea breeze will begin to make its way back in by the afternoon shifting the winds around to the east southeast.

MARINE
Issued at 204 PM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

High pressure centered directly over our local waters this evening will slide eastward overnight and will become anchored near Bermuda through midweek, resulting in a prevailing southerly wind flow. Seas of 2-3 feet will prevail both near shore and offshore through Tuesday. Evening wind surges may bring wind speeds up to near Caution levels of 15-20 knots over the offshore waters, especially towards midweek, and seas offshore will build slightly to 3-4 feet beginning on Tuesday night. A series of frontal boundaries will begin to approach our region from the northwest beginning late on Thursday, followed by a front stalling near our local waters next weekend, which could be accompanied by scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Rip Currents: Onshore winds developing each afternoon will combine with a persistent east-southeasterly ocean swell to create a lower end moderate risk at all area beaches during the next several days.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 1130 AM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

A very dry air mass will continue through around midweek, with minimum relative humidity values approaching critical thresholds each afternoon for inland locations west of the Interstate 95 corridor through Tuesday. Light northwest to northerly transport winds this morning will shift to west-southwesterly around 10 knots across inland portions of southeast GA, with surface and transport winds shifting to southeasterly along the Interstate 95 corridor and northeasterly across north central FL during the afternoon today. Lighter transport speeds today will generally result in fair daytime dispersion values. Surface and transport winds will shift back to northwesterly on Monday morning before backing to southwesterly around 10 knots across inland portions of southeast GA, while surface and transport winds become onshore along the northeast FL coast, southeasterly across north central FL, and southerly for coastal southeast GA during the afternoon hours. Elevated mixing heights on Monday will result in fair to good daytime dispersion values. Surface and transport winds will then shift to southeasterly on Tuesday across northeast and north central FL, with southerly winds prevailing across southeast GA.
Breezy conditions developing to the south of Interstate 10 will combine with elevated mixing heights to create good daytime dispersion values at most inland locations, with fair values generally forecast along and east of I-95.

HYDROLOGY
Issued at 1130 AM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

Water levels are nearing moderate flood late this morning along the Alapaha River near the Statenville gauge, and a new flood warning has been issued since the gauge is expected to crest in a moderate flood on Monday. Moderate flooding also continues downstream along the Alapaha River near the Jennings gauge. Minor flooding that will be occurring along lower portions of the Suwannee River this week will also result in continued rises in water levels along lower portions of the Santa Fe River this week, with ongoing minor flooding rising to moderate flood levels later this week and potentially approaching a major flood during next weekend. Water levels along the lower Santa Fe near the gauge at Hildreth are expected to rise above flood stage on Tuesday night, with minor flooding then continuing during the next several days.

Water levels are expected to crest just below a moderate flood along the Satilla River near the gauge at Waycross tonight, followed by water levels falling below flood stage late this week.
Moderate flooding continues upstream at the gauge above Millwood.
Minor flooding will continue during the next several days along the lower Satilla River around the Atkinson gauge. Water levels are near flood stage along upper portions of the Altamaha River near the Baxley gauge, where minor flooding is forecast later today through late this week. Water levels will crest very close to flood stage along upper portions of the Altamaha River near the Charlotteville gauge from late Monday night through Wednesday before falling back below flood stage by Wednesday evening.
Otherwise, water levels have crested at minor flood along portions of the St. Marys River near the Moniac gauge, with levels forecast to crest just below flood stage downstream at the gauge near Macclenny later today and tonight.
