NEAR TERM
(Today through Tonight)
Issued at 335 AM EDT Mon May 27 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

A transition day begins as the sfc ridge axis will be south of the area today while a cool front moves in from the northwest later tonight. Some low stratus will be possible over the western zones as well as patchy fog which will dissipate by 8-9 AM. Deep layer flow is southwest averaging about 15-20 kt but increasing to near 25 kt as shortwave troughing moves into AL and parts of GA by late aftn and early evening. Anticipate scattered to numerous showers and storms convection to move into our northwest zones by the 22z-03z time frame, as suggested by CAM model solutions. The environment is conducive to a few strong to possibly severe storms with marginal shear values of 30 kt, DCAPE of about 1000 J/kg, MLCAPE of around 1500 to near 2500 J/kg. Strong to damaging wind gusts and marginally severe hail are possible. SPC has placed the far northwest part of the forecast area in a slight risk of severe storms, with marginal risk down to FL/GA state line. Otherwise, it will be a hot and breezy day with southwest to west winds of about 10-15 mph, with Atlantic sea breeze having a tougher time pushing inland compared to yesterday. Max temps in the lower to mid 90s, but fortunately dewpoints will mix lower in the aftn and keep heat indices in check to below 102. Should see increased mid/high clouds coming in from the northwest and west late today.

Tonight, as mentioned, scattered to numerous showers and storms should be ongoing over southeast GA this evening. As the shortwave trough transverses the area, the semi-organized convection, possibly in short segments occasionally generated by outflow boundaries, will shift east to southeast. The airmass will remain unstable as dewpoints will be around 70 or lower 70s. This should further support convection persisting into the overnight hours and pushing into northeast FL near and after midnight. Isolated strong to severe storms may persist through around midnight mainly over southeast GA, but a couple of strong storms possible around the Suwannee Valley area overnight. Lows will be muggy in the lower to mid 70s with light westerly or southwest winds continuing overnight.

SHORT TERM
(Tuesday through Wednesday night)
Issued at 335 AM EDT Mon May 27 2024

A cold front over northeast FL will gradually shift and stall over north-central FL on Wednesday as high pressure ridging builds south across the MS River Valley. Showers and storms will be ongoing along the frontal boundary Tuesday morning. Dry, "cool" air filtering in from the northwest in the wake of the front will mostly suppress convection over SE GA on Tuesday. Best moisture and lift will remain along the frontal boundary focusing convection mainly south of the I-10 corridor. A few showers and storms may form along the pinned Atlantic sea breeze in the afternoon with better chances along the NE FL coast due to the front interacting with the sea breeze. Rain wanes Tuesday night with the loss of daytime heating and the front weakening. Dry airmass builds across the area with PWATs < 1 inch. Mostly dry conditions prevail on Wednesday with a few showers possible in north-central FL along the lingering frontal boundary. Hot days continue with highs in the low to mid 90s each day. Heat indices will be around 100 degrees in NE FL on Tuesday. The drier air will help keep heat indices below 100 on Wednesday.

LONG TERM
(Thursday through Sunday)
Issued at 335 AM EDT Mon May 27 2024

Moisture gradually returns with developing southwesterly flow on Thursday. A frontal boundary stalled over NE FL on Thursday will shift southward Friday into the weekend as high pressure builds to the north and into the mid-Atlantic states this weekend. Rain will primarily be in NE FL on Thursday where the best moisture is and lingering lift from the frontal boundary. Passing upper shortwaves and an increase in moisture will lead to isolated to scattered showers and storms area-wide on Friday. Pattern returns to sea- breeze driven convection for the weekend with high pressure ridging over the SE US. Onshore flow develops over the weekend with highest rain chances focused along the I-75 corridor where the sea breezes will likely collide. Highs will then range from the upper 80s in SE GA to the low 90s in north-central FL.
Overnight lows will be "cool" in the 60s

AVIATION
(12Z TAFS)
Issued at 804 AM EDT Mon May 27 2024

Other than a lifting deck of low stratus across southeast GA, VFR conditions prevail. West to southwest winds will develop through the morning, becoming gusty around 15-20 knots by the afternoon. Appears the sea breeze will push into the immediate coast sites (KSSI, KSGJ, and KCRG) this afternoon for a few hours before it dissipatesthis and southwesterly flow strengthens ahead of an approaching front. Don't anticipate shower or storms until after 00z at KSSI and after 04z at northeast FL airfields as the weak front slowly pushes south. Medium confidence in VFR ceilings overnight but there is some potential for cigs to fall to MVFR with shower activity.

MARINE
Issued at 335 AM EDT Mon May 27 2024

West to southwest winds initially today but will shift to southeast and south during the aftn at 10-15 kt. Seas remain low near 2 ft per buoys but will rise up slightly later today as winds ramp up further. Sustained sfc winds near 15 kt possible by evening, with a weak cool front and upper level disturbance approaching from the northwest. Some t-storm activity possible late tonight and on Tuesday. The front will move south of the area by Wednesday but will stall and become diffuse thereafter. Winds will be onshore later in the week as high pressure ridge builds in from the north.

Rip Currents: A low-end moderate risk again today with surf possibly a tad higher but overall little difference from yesterday. At least initially, up to 3 wave groups noted in buoys this morning, with a long period swell near 14 seconds that is very small. Low risk is in place for southeast GA beaches. Longshore current likely weak from the south. Similar conditions appear for Tuesday.

HYDROLOGY
Issued at 330 AM EDT Mon May 27 2024

Moderate river flooding is forecast end of the week on the Santa Fe at Three Rivers Estates, just touching the moderate category.
The Satilla River basin remains in Minor Flood stage at Atkinson (but coming down) and portions of the Suwannee are expected near Minor Flood stage this week. Minor flooding will be possible towards mid to late for the lower Santa Fe River near the gauge at Hildreth.
