Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 659 AM EDT Mon Mar 30 2020

AVIATION. [Through 12Z Tuesday]

LIFR visibilities ended up reaching TLH this morning, with IFR visibilities at VLD. Otherwise, earlier MVFR ceilings have cleared and expect the visibility restrictions to clear quickly this morning. VFR will then prevail through the TAF until low cloudiness spreads inland from the coast very late tonight.

PREV DISCUSSION [305 AM EDT].

NEAR TERM [Today Through Tonight].

The upper ridge will continue to flatten today, with deep layer flow becoming increasingly zonal. A stationary boundary will lie across the Tri-State region, but will have little effect on the sensible weather besides the notable wind shift. Afternoon highs will continue to near record levels as several locations across the Big Bend flirt with 90 degrees.

Overnight, low clouds and possibly some fog will spread inland from the coast as a more moisture rich airmass lifts over the developing warm front. Expect lows to range from near 70 at the coast, to the low 60s in south Georgia. Rain should generally hold off until morning on Tuesday.

SHORT TERM [Tomorrow Through Wednesday].

In the upper levels, a potent trough will move through the Southeast on Tuesday. At the surface, a low will move across Central MS/AL/GA on Tuesday dragging a cold front through the region at this time. With deep layer shear around 60 knots and warm moist unstable air ahead of the approaching system, severe storms will be possible on Tuesday. SPC has a slight risk for severe storms Tuesday for most of the region. The main threats will be damaging winds and isolated tornadoes. There is still some uncertainty with the timing. Southeast Alabama and the Florida Panhandle may start to see storms in the morning.

Tuesday night rain will move out as high pressure moves into the region bringing a much cooler, drier air mass. Highs will be in the lower 80s on Tuesday and cooler mainly in the 70s on Wednesday. Lows will be in the 50s Tuesday night.

LONG TERM [Wednesday Night Through Monday].

In the upper levels, a ridge will build into the region by Thursday. At the surface, high pressure will be over the region Thursday. Moisture will return by Friday night. There will be a chance for showers and thunderstorms (POPs 40 percent) Saturday and Sunday as a weak system approaches. Highs will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Lows will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s Wednesday night. Late in the week lows will be in 50s and near 60.

MARINE.

Southerly winds will increase on Tuesday ahead of an approaching system. Severe storms are possible on Tuesday. Strong northerly winds (up to 20 kt) are expected Tuesday night after the cold front passes. Late in the week expect light to moderate easterly winds.

FIRE WEATHER.

Dry conditions are forecast today, especially across AL and GA where the stationary boundary has moved past. Lighter winds today will preclude Red Flag conditions, however. Showers and storms are expected on Tuesday, with dry conditions returning Wednesday through the end of the week. Red Flag conditions are not expected this week.

HYDROLOGY.

The best chance for rain will be Tuesday as a more substantial cold front moves through. Another chance for rain is likely this weekend. Forecast rainfall totals are less than half an inch for the region over the next five days.

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.

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.
