New UPDATE

UPDATE
Issued at 830 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

For the latest NE FL and SE GA Daily Key Messages please visit: https:// www.weather.gov/media/jax/briefings/nws-jax-briefing.pdf

Sfc high pressure ridge remains over northern parts of FL and over the northeast GOMEX and the western Atlantic. Pressure gradient light enough for both west and east coast sea breezes again today but winds will becoming light to calm tonight. Mostly clear skies with just some high clouds tonight. Low temps tonight looked on track with little to change, and kept in some patchy light fog for the far southeast zones for late tonight and early Tuesday.

For the marine forecast, no significant changes. Seas about 2-3 ft with dominate wave periods of 8-10 seconds from energy from southeast direction. Winds of 10-15 kt tonight.

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 358 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Late afternoon surface analysis depicts Atlantic high pressure (1026 millibars) centered near Bermuda, with this feature extending its axis westward across the FL peninsula
Aloft
stout ridging remains in place over the Bay of Campeche (southwestern Gulf of Mexico), with this ridge axis extending northward through the lower Mississippi Valley and through the Plains states. This ridge continues to create deep and dry northwesterly flow aloft, with this subsident air mass suppressing cumulus cloud development throughout our region despite temperatures this afternoon climbing to the low and middle 80s at most inland locations. A loose local pressure gradient has allowed the Gulf and Atlantic sea breezes to move slowly inland this afternoon, and coastal temperatures have cooled back to the upper 70s following the passage of this boundary, and dewpoints at coastal locations have risen to the mid and upper 50s. Dewpoints elsewhere ranged from the mid 40s to the lower 50s as of 19Z.

NEAR TERM
(through Tonight)
Issued at 358 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

The Atlantic and Gulf coast sea breeze boundaries will likely collide near the U.S. Highway 301 corridor shortly after sunset this evening. The atmosphere will remain too dry and subsident for more than scattered, flat cumulus development along these boundaries this evening. Otherwise, southerly low level flow overnight will begin to increase moisture levels enough for patchy fog formation towards sunrise across north central FL, with fog possibly extending into southern portions of the St. Johns River basin. Thin cirrus cloudiness will begin to spill over the ridge axis located to our west, with this cloudiness beginning to move over inland southeast GA and the Suwannee Valley towards sunrise.
Otherwise, surface winds will again decouple towards midnight, with better radiational cooling conditions expected tonight, allowing lows to fall to the mid and upper 50s inland, while a light southerly breeze continues along the immediate coast, keeping lows in the lower 60s for locations east of Interstate 95 early on Tuesday morning.

SHORT TERM
(Tuesday through Wednesday night)
Issued at 358 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Atlantic surface ridging will continue to extend its axis westward across the FL peninsula, while the stout ridge in place over the Bay of Campeche deflects a shortwave trough that is currently crossing the Desert Southwest northeastward towards the Great Lakes by Wednesday night. Periods of high altitude cloudiness will occasionally spill into our region from the west, but our tranquil weather pattern will overall continue, with highs climbing to the mid and upper 80s at inland locations on both Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. Sea breezes will continue to push well inland during the afternoon hours, keeping coastal highs closer to 80. Southerly low level flow will continue to gradually increase moisture levels, leading to patchy to areas of fog formation early on Wednesday morning, especially for locations along and east of U.S. Highway 301. Fog coverage may shift westward by early Thursday morning. Lows will generally range from the upper 50s to around 60 inland and the low to mid 60s at coastal locations.

LONG TERM
(Thursday through next Monday)
Issued at 358 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Ridging aloft will flatten late this week, allowing for a weak frontal boundary to enter the southeastern states on Thursday.
This front will not have enough support to push through our region, only serving to shift the Atlantic ridge axis southward.
Low level flow will veer to a more south-southwesterly direction, and a lingering dry air mass should allow highs to climb to the upper 80s and lower 90s at inland locations late this week through the weekend, with afternoon sea breezes keeping coastal highs in the low to mid 80s. Lows will warm to the low and mid 60s area- wide by late in the week and during the upcoming weekend.

Troughing aloft will gradually evolve over the northern Plains states late this week, and a shortwave trough will then dive southeastward through the Ohio, Tennessee and lower Mississippi Valleys during the weekend. This feature will drive a cold front towards our area from the northwest by Sunday afternoon, bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms with it. The front should slowly pass through our region on Sunday night and Monday, with a cooler and drier air mass then expected to follow in its wake by Tuesday as high pressure builds into the Tennessee Valley. Highs will cool back to the 70s for locations north of Interstate 10 in the wake of the frontal passage on Monday, with lower 80s expected for locations south of I-10.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 740 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

VFR with just high clouds near or above 20 kft, and low levels are too dry to support cumulus development. Only exception may be some brief MVFR vsby at VQQ from 07Z to 11Z, but confidence is lowered based on the latest guidance. Sfc winds will light from the southeast for most TAFs except for more southwest at GNV.
Winds will continue to decrease tonight. Winds may start out light south- southwest early Tuesday, then transition to southeast during the late morning and afternoon near 7-11 kt.

MARINE
Issued at 358 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

High pressure centered near Bermuda will continue to extend its axis westward across the northeast Florida waters through Thursday, keeping a prevailing southerly wind flow in place across our local waters. Seas of 2-3 feet will prevail near shore during the next several days. Evening wind surges may briefly bring speeds up towards Caution levels of 15-20 knots offshore, where seas will build slightly to 3-4 feet tonight.

A weak cold front entering the southeastern states on Thursday may stall over the Georgia waters by Friday, resulting in a brief period of light and variable wind directions across our local waters. Southwesterly winds may strengthen somewhat late in the the weekend ahead of another approaching cold front, which could bring chances for showers and thunderstorms by Sunday afternoon and evening.

Rip Currents: Developing onshore winds each afternoon will combine with a lingering easterly ocean swell to keep a moderate rip current risk at all area beaches.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 358 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

A very dry air mass will be slow to loosen its grip over our region this week, resulting in relative humidity values crashing to near critical thresholds during the afternoon hours again on Tuesday. Otherwise, southeasterly transport winds will become breezy by Tuesday afternoon across northeast and north central FL, which will combine with elevated mixing heights to create good daytime dispersion values. Southerly transport winds around 10 mph will result in mainly fair daytime dispersion values across southeast GA on Tuesday. Transport winds will then shift to southerly on Wednesday area-wide, with breezy southeasterly surface winds expected at coastal locations during the afternoon hours. Elevated mixing heights will continue, creating good daytime dispersion values at most locations.

HYDROLOGY
Issued at 1228 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Water levels are cresting today in a moderate flood along the Alapaha River near the Statenville gauge. Water levels are expected to fall back to minor flooding by early Wednesday morning, followed by the river falling below flood stage late on Thursday. Minor flooding that will be occurring along lower portions of the Suwannee River this week will also result in continued rises in water levels along lower portions of the Santa Fe River, with ongoing minor flooding rising to moderate flood levels by Thursday morning and then approaching a major flood during the early portions of next week. Water levels along the lower Santa Fe near the gauge at Hildreth are expected to rise above flood stage on Tuesday night, with minor flooding then continuing during the next several days.

Water levels have crested just below a moderate flood along the Satilla River near the gauge at Waycross, with water levels expected to fall below flood stage later this week. Minor flooding will continue during the next several days along the lower Satilla River around the Atkinson gauge. Water levels have risen above flood stage along upper portions of the Altamaha River near the Baxley gauge, where minor flooding is forecast to continue through early Friday morning. Water levels are still expected to crest just below flood stage along upper portions of the Altamaha River near the Charlotteville gauge towards midweek Otherwise, water levels have fallen below flood stage along portions of the St. Marys River near the Moniac gauge, with levels expected to remain below flood stage downstream at the gauge near Macclenny.
