ISOLATED STRONG STORMS POSSIBLE TODAY

NEAR TERM
(Today through Tonight)
Issued at 330 AM EST Sun Dec 3 2023

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

Low pressure is well to the north across the Ohio Valley at 1007 mb with a trailing cold front extending southward to northwest GA to southern AL and into the Gulf. Areas of fog will be around early this morning due to light southerly winds and very moist boundary layer. Some weak pre- frontal troughing is noted in the guidance and the latest sfc analysis. Plentiful moisture is ahead of the front, with PWATS of 1.8 to 2 inches. The front will advance to the east along with the pre- frontal trough, yielding high rain chances for today especially over the western zones closer to instability and moisture off the Gulf of Mexico. We can't rule out strong storms again but probably not as robust as yesterday given the weaker instability. Estimating SBCAPE of up to 600-1200 J/kg and bulk shear of 40-50 kt. Regardless, an isolated wind threat and tornado threat remains especially with any bowing structures, mainly over northeast FL. The main time frame is from after sunrise to about 4-5 PM. Highs mainly in the 70s, with a few reports around 80 over eastern northeast FL zones, with southwest winds near 10-15 mph.

Tonight, the cold front will be in southeast GA with a weak frontal wave possible near the FL big bend. The front will continue to slowly push southeastward with a chance of showers along and ahead of it. T-storm chances should be rapidly diminishing through midnight and be pushing offshore into the coastal waters. NBM POPs looked a bit too low so adjusted slightly upward and may need further adjustments upward. Min temps will be a little lower than this morning as the cool air arrives in the wake of the front. Patchy fog will be possible late tonight due to the very moist airmass ahead of the front.

SHORT TERM
(Monday through Tuesday night)
Issued at 330 AM EST Sun Dec 3 2023

Lingering showers will clear out by Monday morning as high pressure conditions settle in over the region. Cold front boundary will press south over the Florida peninsula with dry weather and westerly flow dominating the weather pattern for the beginning of the week. Patchy early morning fog is possible for Monday followed by breezy southwesterly-westerly winds in the afternoon with winds becoming more northwesterly on Tuesday with dry weather throughout the forecast period. Temperatures will experience a noticeable drop between Monday and Tuesday with high temps lowering from out of the 70s down into the 60s, with overnight low temperatures dropping down into the mid to lower 40s.

LONG TERM
(Wednesday through Saturday)
Issued at 330 AM EST Sun Dec 3 2023

A dry cold front will move in over the forecast area from out of the northwest by midweek bringing colder temperatures and gusty northwesterly winds. Dry weather will continue through the end of the week with high pressure moving off to the east on Friday resulting in a more moist southwesterly flow developing through the weekend with increased chances for showers and possible thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will be below the seasonal average through the forecast period with temps gradually warming over the weekend.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 1256 AM EST Sun Dec 3 2023

IFR cigs to some VFR cigs at this time but conditions expected to deteriorate further through 12z-14z before southwest winds increase ahead of an approaching cold front. Stratus and periods of lower vsby expected with prevailing IFR and LIFR and possible VLIFR by 12z. More uncertainty at SGJ given that cigs are not reported so AMD NOT SKED in the TAF at this time. Current shower activity is mostly to the northwest of the TAF sites but will be moving in during early morning, with a chance of TS as well. Some improvement in flight conditions is expected is expected with this prefrontal band of showers and t-storms. Best chance of t-storms appears to be in the 14z-20z time frame, highest chances over GNV, VQQ, and SGJ. Moderate to heavy rainfall possible with the convection. Anticipate further improvements areawide from around 19z-03z. After 03z, some concern for low cigs down to MVFR and some IFR again with the actual cold frontal boundary but low confidence forecast at this time. Winds will favor a southwest direction for most locations at or below 10 knots, with a few gusts up to 15-20 kt possible during the daytime hours.

MARINE
Issued at 330 AM EST Sun Dec 3 2023

Areas of dense fog may still be affecting the nearshore waters per guidance and some of the coastal observation, so opted for now to continue the advisory. Otherwise, numerous showers and some t-storms expected today ahead of a cold front. Cold front will move into the area waters later tonight and winds will shift to the west and precip will exit the area. Some stronger west to northwest winds expected Monday but not expecting any advisory levels winds or seas. By Tuesday night into Wed, stronger northwest to north winds anticipated and we may see an advisory needed mainly for the offshore waters, and just slightly below advy for nearshore waters.

Rip Currents: Moderate risk of rip currents are noted for northeast FL zones where the surf may be near 2-3 ft today.
Lower overall risk for southeast GA beaches due to weaker surf.
Slightly lower risk for Monday as surf heights drop further.

HYDROLOGY
Issued at 330 AM EST Sun Dec 3 2023

We had some record rainfall reports at JAX and CRG yesterday but not expecting that today. However, additional rainfall through tonight forecast to be up to 0.5 to 1 inches.
