GMZ700 Synopsis For The Suwannee River To Okaloosa-walton County Line Out To 60 Nm 316 Pm Edt Sat May 30 2020
Synopsis.. Cautionary conditions are expected on Mon as breezy easterly winds prevail and waves build up to 3 ft. Small-craft advisories will likely need to be issued for our eastern waters beginning overnight Mon as 3-5 ft seas build and push into our western waters early Tues morning. Conditions gradually improve from east to west thereafter, with winds and seas getting below headline criteria by Tues evening. Borderline cautionary levels are possible at the end of the period from a tropical disturbance in the gulf.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 321 PM EDT Sat May 30 2020

NEAR TERM [Through Sunday].

A weak cold front moving through the area this afternoon will continue to aid in the development of isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms through around sunset. For tonight, the loss of daytime heating is expected to result in convection diminishing quickly after sunset. Heading into Sunday, a drier airmass behind the weak cold front is expected to keep convection suppressed with only a slight chance for the far southeast big bend. Overnight lows tonight are expected to range from the mid 60s across the far northwest to lower 70s elsewhere. Afternoon highs on Sunday are expected to range from the upper 80s to mid 90s across the area.

SHORT TERM [Sunday Night Through Monday Night].

Dry air filters in behind the passed frontal boundary, which should make for fair weather through the short-term period. Meanwhile, surface high pressure pushes southeast from The Great Lakes region and ridging aloft creeps in from the west. This pattern shift will prompt winds to veer from north late Sun, to east early Mon. High temperatures are forecast to be in the upper 80s/low 90s and lows in the upper 60s/low 70s. These values are right around normal for the month of June.

LONG TERM [Tuesday Through Saturday].

Surface high pressure continues pushing southeast, in conjunction with a backdoor front that should bring an Atlantic seabreeze that may be strong enough to produce isolated showers/thunderstorms over our marine zones Tues. By mid-week, ridging to the north begins flattening out in response to a lifting upper-low from TX, thus leaving our area wedged between a zonally oriented frontal boundary over OH/TN Valley and a large swath of tropical moisture over the Gulf. The latter is of interest because models are hinting at the development of a disturbance in association with a Central American Gyre over the Bay of Campeche. However confidence is low in how this system evolves. Regardless of development, it is reasonable to expect some tropical moisture advection into our area. Therefore PoPs return to the forecast on Wed, beginning with our western waters, followed by our coastal and inland areas Thurs into Fri as the moisture is advected farther northward. Best chances for showers/storms areawide appear to be Fri and Sat afternoon from seabreeze convection combined with lingering tropical moisture.

Despite the anticipated wet pattern, daytime temperatures are forecast to be quite hot, with highs mostly in the low 90s (except along the immediate coast). It will also feel muggy outside. Increased cloud cover should keep overnight lows on the warm side (mostly low 70s).

AVIATION. [Through 18Z Sunday]

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected across the area through sunset. Otherwise, VFR conditions are expected to prevail through the period.

MARINE.

Cautionary conditions are expected on Mon as breezy easterly winds prevail and waves build up to 3 ft. Small-Craft Advisories will likely need to be issued for our eastern waters beginning overnight Mon as 3-5 ft seas build and push into our western waters early Tues morning. Conditions gradually improve from east to west thereafter, with winds and seas getting below headline criteria by Tues evening. Borderline cautionary levels are possible at the end of the period from a tropical disturbance in the Gulf.

FIRE WEATHER.

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

HYDROLOGY.

A wet pattern is expected in the latter part of the forecast period but rainfall amounts will be contingent on the evolution of a tropical disturbance in the Gulf. Current 7-day QPF estimates generally show less than 1 inch with our coastal areas likely seeing the highest amounts. We should have a better assessment of the QPF as confidence increases in the aforementioned system's progress. There are no flood concerns at this time.

SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT.

Spotter activation is not requested. However, spotters are always encouraged to safely report significant weather conditions when they occur (while following all local, state, and CDC guidelines) by calling the office or tweeting us @NWSTallahassee.

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. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
