Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 750 PM EST Sat Jan 25 2020

UPDATE.

No significant changes to the previous forecast appear necessary.

AVIATION.

[Through 00z Monday] VFR conditions are expected to prevail through the period.

PREV DISCUSSION [302 PM EST].

.NEAR TERM [Through Tonight]

High pressure will continue to build in tonight. Skies will remain mainly clear and temperatures will fall into the 30s away from the immediate coast. Patchy frost is expected well inland.

.SHORT TERM [Sunday through Monday Night]

Mid/high level moisture will increase on Sunday as a short wave and weak Gulf low approach. Clouds will thicken through the day from west to east and a little light rain could reach the panhandle by sunset. Overall this system is looking less and less impressive with only limited moisture and no instability. PoPs will be capped in the chance range with better chances over and near the Gulf. Moisture and forcing for lift then pull away later Monday with dry weather returning. MAV temperatures look fine.

LONG TERM [Tuesday Through Saturday].

Cool and dry conditions will then continue through mid next week before a now rather unimpressive shortwave increases rain chances briefly Wednesday into Thursday morning. The subsequent system, while having some notable uncertainty on timing, looks more impressive. It may begin to influence the area possibly as early as Friday night. While current guidance still has a rather large spread on timing, confidence is fairly high in an upper level low digging down over the southwestern states and becoming entrained within a LW trough. It will then be dragged east along the gulf coast developing a surface low that is pulled NE along the leading edge of the trough. Impacts to our area will depend greatly on timing and the speed of the system.

MARINE.

Winds will subside this evening then remain relatively light into early Monday. A weak low will then move through the eastern Gulf on Monday leading to an increase in east-northeast flow through Monday night.

FIRE WEATHER.

Red flag conditions are not expected for the next several days.

HYDROLOGY.

Significant rainfall is not expected this period as QPF continues to generally show 0.5" accumulations or less with isolated coastal areas seeing up to 1". The heaviest rain is forecast to remain offshore. There are no flood concerns.

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.
