New NEAR TERM, SHORT TERM, LONG TERM, AVIATION, MARINE, FIRE WEATHER

NEAR TERM
(Through Wednesday)
Issued at 358 PM EDT Tue Apr 16 2024

Another quiet night is in store for us with surface high pressure in close proximity to our east and strong subtropical ridge established across the Gulf. These features will make for light/calm winds leading into tomorrow morning amidst a shallow, moistening boundary layer. As such, another round of fog development is likely. Guidance currently has the strongest signal over the Western FL Panhandle & Southern AL, so that is where fog (some of which may be locally dense) is explicitly forecast from about after midnight to around sunrise. Low temperatures range from the upper 50s to low 60s. These readings are several degrees above normal for mid-April.

For Wednesday, the subtropical ridge axis extends roughly from the Bay of Campeche to the Suwannee Valley with modeled 500-mb heights of 588-589 dm. These values approach daily record territory, per KTLH sounding climatology. Therefore, expect an unseasonably warm day characterized by widespread mid 80s for inland high temperatures under a mix of sun & clouds. The coastal strip should experience relatively cooler temperatures from the afternoon seabreeze.
Meanwhile, confluent southeasterly flow ahead of an increasingly diffuse front sagging into the MS Valley may squeeze out isolated low-topped showers off/towards the Emerald Coast during the morning hrs.

SHORT AND LONG TERM
(Wednesday Night through Monday)
Issued at 358 PM EDT Tue Apr 16 2024

Upper ridge axis will shift east towards the east coast as an upper low moves northeast towards southern Canada by Thursday.
Surface ridging will continue across the southeast US emanating from high pressure in the western Atlantic. Mid level flow transitions to a more zonal flow late week while a surface high pressure center sets up in the eastern Gulf allowing winds to veer from the southeast to southwest. The area will be hard pressed to see any rainfall through the first part of the weekend, though a couple of weak showers cannot be ruled out as shortwave energy glances by to the north. With the zonal flow aloft, mid/high clouds from the upstream system and shortwaves traversing the flow appear plentiful Wednesday and Thursday. Despite this, daily high temperatures will reach well into the 80s, with a few 90s in the mix Friday and Saturday. The next frontal system, and the one that seems to be gaining consistency and confidence in the models, appears to make a run at the area Sunday into Monday. Some rainfall will accompany the front along with a cooling trend back into the upper 70s to low 80s behind the front heading into the next work week.

AVIATION
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 358 PM EDT Tue Apr 16 2024

Prevailing VFR conds for this TAF period with some upper clouds and southerly winds around 10 kts or less. Light to calm winds are expected tonight while fog aims to develop over the Western FL Panhandle/Southern AL prior to or around sunrise. Current guidance keeps this activity just far enough away from DHN/ECP, but trends will need to be monitored. Winds turn south to southwesterly late tmrw morning AOB 10 kts.

MARINE
Issued at 358 PM EDT Tue Apr 16 2024

Surface high pressure maintains favorable boating conditions into the weekend with a seabreeze each afternoon prompting an onshore wind just offshore. By Sunday, a cold front sagging towards the waters brings back rain chances and the potential for thunderstorms.
Winds turn more northerly behind the front on Monday. Overall, forecast winds and seas aim to stay below cautionary levels.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 358 PM EDT Tue Apr 16 2024

Fire concerns are fairly low the next 72 hrs as a steady south to southwest wind offsets continued rain-free weather. Patchy fog is likely over the Western FL Panhandle and Southern AL early Wednesday morning, of which some may be locally dense. By tomorrow afternoon, high dispersions are forecast over the northern-tier GA counties in response to winds becoming slightly stronger ahead of a sagging front from the MS Valley. A seabreeze is expected to develop each day as well with a notable warming trend forecast heading into the weekend. In fact, most inland locations will flirt with the 90- degree mark for the first time this year on Friday.



HYDROLOGY
Issued at 251 AM EDT Tue Apr 16 2024

The period of dry conditions will continue for the next several days with the next chance for rainfall accompanying a low pressure system possibly late this weekend. Generally, less than a quarter inch of rainfall is anticipated with this system at this time.

The 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.

In addition to the Apalachicola, St Marks, Withlacoochee, Aucilla, and Ochlockonee rivers remaining in flood, the Suwanee has now risen into flood at Rock Creek, Luraville, and Branford.
Expect possible rises to continue down the Suwanee with additional points possibly reaching flood in the days ahead.
