Near term [through tonight]
High pressure will continue to dominate across the region. Thus,
expect any left over afternoon convection to quickly dissipate after
sunset. Quiet and calm conditions will prevail overnight with winds
below 5 kts. Low temps will be in the mid- 70s inland and slightly
higher along the immediate coast.

Short term [Saturday through Sunday night]
An eastern CONUS trough will amplify over the weekend as a
shortwave moves through the northeast and another moves into the
mississippi valley. Broad synoptic ascent resultant from the
trough, and a wedge front backing down the eastern seaboard will
contribute to a higher coverage of storms by Sunday. On Saturday,
the seabreezes will be the main forcing mechanism for convection.

Highs are forecast to be in the low 90s with heat indices between
100-105.

Long term [Monday through Friday]
The same forcing mechanisms from the short term period will be
responsible for convection locally through the start of next week.

As invest 98l moves up the east coast of the u.S. We may get one
day around mid-week where we'll return to typical pops as the
upper trough temporarily de-amplifies. However, a strong shortwave
forecast to move through the midwest mid to late week will bring
another front to the southeast and an increase in rain chances
once again. Temperatures are forecast to remain in the lower 90s
with heat indices around 100-105.

Aviation
[through 18z Saturday]
in general, high pressure will dominate across the tri-state area
this afternoon which will work to supress most convective activity
and keep pops below average. Meanwhile, terminals located across
our extreme western fl panhandle and SE al counties are more
likely to see thunderstorms develop through the afternoon.

Visibility and ceiling restrictions will come down to MVFR or
ifr lifr during the onset of the strongest thunderstorms. Other
than that,VFR conditions with a scattered cumulus field will
prevail. Thunderstorm activity should decrease through the late
afternoon and into the early evening hours.

Marine
Light winds and low seas will prevail for the next several days.

Fire weather
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected each afternoon
through the weekend, with no fire weather concerns.

Hydrology
Just isolated storms are expected through tomorrow which will
allow elevated rivers over the eastern big bend to continue to
subside. Shower and thunderstorm coverage will increase early next
week as deep tropical moisture returns. Locally heavy rains are
likely each day next week but widespread flooding is not
anticipated 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 by calling the office or tweeting us @nwstallahassee.
