Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 644 AM EDT Sat Apr 10 2021

AVIATION. [Through 12Z Sunday]

Main focus of the TAFs today will be a squall line that will move from west to east impacting DHN and ECP this morning and ABY, TLH and VLD this afternoon. While TAFs indicate the most likely timing of the TSRA, cannot rule out some TS behind the line with the SHRA, however would not be as strong as the main line. Toward the end of the TAF cycle we may see patchy dense fog with MVFR/IFR cigs develop at some of the terminils. This will be analyed further after the passage of the squall line.

PREV DISCUSSION [350 AM EDT].

NEAR TERM [Through Tonight].

A significant weather event is expected today across the southeast as a squall line moves through the region. A low pressure system centered over the Plains this morning will slowly lift northeast towards the Great Lakes region through Sunday. A cold front associated with this low is stretched across Arkansas to Texas this morning and while it will move eastward through the day, it will only approach the western portion of the CWA tomorrow morning.

A complex of storms is already moving across the deep south this morning and is expected to reach southeast Alabama and the Florida Panhandle around 12z. This will then march across the CWA through the day, bringing the threat for severe weather to the region. Southeast Alabama and the Florida Panhandle remain under an enhanced risk for severe weather today while most of the remainder of the region is in a slight risk. As the squall line moves through, the main threat will be destructive winds with 70 mph - these winds can cause significant damage. In addition a few tornadoes and hail will be possible. Some locally heavy rainfall may lead to localized flooding, particularly across the Florida Panhandle and portions of southeast Alabama. While the main focus is the squall line for the severe threat, isolated severe storms will be possible ahead of the line this morning, even before 12z.

The squall line should traverse the area quickly today with the severe threat diminishing by the late afternoon/early evening. Some redevelopment of storms is expected during the second half of tonight, mainly across the marine area and coastal regions of the Florida Panhandle and Big Bend.

SHORT TERM [Sunday Through Monday].

Showers and thunderstorms will end from west to east during the day on Sunday with the passage of a cold front. Pops will be tapered from slight (20%) northwest to likely (60%) across the far southeast Big Bend. Some of the storms may become strong to severe across portions of the Florida Big Bend where there is a low-end (Marginal) threat for locally damaging gusts and hail.

Deep layer ridging and a dry airmass filters into the region on Monday in the wake of the front. With a dry airmass in place along with abundant sunshine and nearly zonal flow aloft, daytime temperatures are expected to be on the order of around 5 to 7 degrees warmer than Sunday's max temps.

Highs Sunday in the upper 70s to around 80 and mid 80s on Monday. Lows Sunday night in the mid 50s to around 60.

LONG TERM [Monday Night Through Saturday].

After a few dry days, another cold front will arrive and bring a return of showers and thunderstorms to our area on Wednesday. This may may stall in close proximity to our area keeping at least low end rain chances in the forecast through the remainder of the week. High temperatures during this period are expected to be in the upper 70s to low 80s. Low temperatures will be from the mid- upper 50s to low 60s.

MARINE.

A Small Craft Advisory is in effect until Sunday morning for all but the nearshore Big Bend waters where cautionary conditions are expected. Thereafter, winds and seas are expected to remain below headline criteria.

FIRE WEATHER.

Multiple rounds of wetting rain this weekend will preclude any fire weather concerns.

HYDROLOGY.

Several inches had fallen on Friday in our Florida Panhandle coastal counties. Today a more widespread heavy rain event will occur, suggesting flash flooding will be a concern. Areas most prone to flash flooding in this will be urban areas of Southeast Alabama, extreme Southwest Georgia, and the Florida Panhandle. Especially areas that were affected by heavy rain on Friday.

Riverine flooding will take time to develop, given the anticipated rainfall distribution. The Choctawhatchee, Chipola, Apalachicola, and Lower Flint could all experience minor flooding in the days ahead. Further east, the Ochlockonee River could reach minor flooding should 4 inches of rain fall upstream of Leon County. Other remaining basins in the region could rise into the action category, but minor flooding is unlikely based on the latest forecasts.

SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT.

Spotter activation is requested. Spotters should safely report significant weather conditions and/or damage (while following all local, state, and CDC guidelines) by calling the office or tweeting us @NWSTallahassee.
