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

NEAR TERM
(Through Wednesday)
Issued at 159 PM EST Tue Feb 20 2024

Weak upper level ridging and surface high pressure dominate the forecast through Wednesday. This will lead to quiet and dry weather.
Temperatures for tonight will be generally be below their seasonal by up to ten degrees. With that being said lows for tonight will generally be in the mid to upper 30s north of I-10 with areas south varying from the mid to upper 30s inland in FL, while coastal communities may be closer to the low 40s. If the winds go light temperatures may be a few degrees lower than forecast and if winds stay elevated they may be a few degrees higher.

For tomorrow, our trend for increasing high temperatures continues.
Look for highs to be in the mid to upper 60s across SE AL and SW GA, and in the upper 60s to low 70s in the FL counties while skies remain mostly sunny.

SHORT TERM
(Wednesday night through Thursday night)
Issued at 159 PM EST Tue Feb 20 2024

A high pressure system will be moving eastward from SE Georgia on Wednesday night, before exiting into the Atlantic on Thursday morning. There is not a lot of cloud cover anticipated at this time, so temperatures will range from upper 30s in parts of SW Georgia and the Florida Big Bend to the and lower 40s in SE Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. This will be a few degrees warmer than the previous morning, mostly due to light southerly flow from the Gulf developing overnight.

Going into Thursday, a cold front will approach the area from the northwest. Skies are expected to stay relatively clear throughout Florida, with a potential for some scattered cloud cover over the western coastal areas of the Panhandle. Maximum temperatures are expected to be in the lower 70s throughout the region. Southerly winds expected to increase, with inland values ranging from 10 to 15 mph, and gusting up to 20 mph in the FL Panhandle and possibly up to 20 or 25 mph across SE Alabama. Thursday night, minimal cloud cover is expected throughout the eastern part of the region, with increasing across the Panhandle and southeast Alabama ahead of the front. Minimum temperatures will be higher compared to Wednesday night, with SE Alabama, SW Georgia, and the Florida Panhandle around the upper 50s with the Florida Big Bend in the lower 50s.

There is a slight chance of rain across our Alabama counties into late Thursday night and early Friday, but most of the rain chance will likely hold off until daybreak Friday or later.

LONG TERM
(Friday through Monday)
Issued at 159 PM EST Tue Feb 20 2024

A cold front will be moving through the forecast area at the start of the long term period on Friday. While most of the rain will largely be north of the region, a few rain showers, possibly a rumble of thunder, is possible until the front clears the area in the afternoon. A secondary front should move through on Saturday.
These fronts, and northwest flow aloft prevailing for the upcoming weekend and into early next week should keep things relatively quiet, which after the washout last weekend, should be a welcome change for many.

After a warm day ahead of the cold front passage, conditions cool off the upcoming weekend, but with no significantly cold airmass, high temperatures will drop back into the upper 60s and around 70 with overnight lows dropping into the 40s for the weekend. Upper ridge develops into next week which should allow a return to temperatures in the low to mid 70s.

AVIATION
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 1207 PM EST Tue Feb 20 2024

VFR conditions are expected to prevail with winds generally staying below 10kts today and likely going calm or light and variable after midnight. Light east to northeast winds are expected by tomorrow morning.

MARINE
Issued at 159 PM EST Tue Feb 20 2024

Light northerly winds today will begin clocking around out of the east to south Wednesday into Thursday as high pressure moves off the East Coast. A cold front will move through the waters Thursday night into Friday, bringing an increase in west to northwest winds and building seas. Cautionary-level winds and 3 to 5 foot seas are possible beginning Thursday night and lasting through Saturday. Advisory level conditions are possible on Friday, before things begin to quiet down for the upcoming weekend as high pressure settles in.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 159 PM EST Tue Feb 20 2024

Dispersions will be quite variable in terms of high and low and location over the next few days. For Wednesday, low dispersions are forecast for areas along and west of the Flint and Apalachicola Rivers and nudging into the western counties of the FL Big Bend.
They may be high again on Thursday for much of the region, expect for areas along the immediate coast and in Taylor, Lafayette, and Dixie counties. And finally for Friday, it looks like high dispersions are expected across the FL counties. Outside of that, the other fire weather concern will be lower minRH values on Wednesday which should range from 25 to 35 percent across SE AL and SW GA, while FL varies from the mid 20s to 30 percent along I-10 and closer to 30 to 40 percent for coastal communities. RH recoveries should be good to excellent, with minRH improving for Thursday. The next chance for rain, which doesn't look to be wetting at this time, is Friday followed by another stretch of dry weather.

HYDROLOGY
Issued at 159 PM EST Tue Feb 20 2024

Minor river flooding continues along the Apalachicola, lower Chipola, and the lower Flint Rivers. However, these gages are near or past their crest and should soon begin or continue their slow recessions. Rainfall later this week will be light with totals mainly less than a tenth of an inch. Thus, no additional flood concerns are anticipated.
