The front will drift southward into northeast florida on Saturday before quickly lifting back to the north on Sunday as a warm front. On Monday a potent cold front associated with a strong low pressure will bring breezy offshore winds, elevating seas to near advisory levels Monday and Tuesday.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Jacksonville FL 1223 AM EST Sat Nov 28 2020

AVIATION. [Through 06Z Sunday]

Low clouds and fog expected this morning, especially near the coast. Rain showers will overspread the region from the west Today, with a few embedded thunderstorms possible. Showers will decrease in coverage Tonight, with lower clouds anticipated.

PREV DISCUSSION [929 PM EST].

NEAR TERM [Through Tonight].

Scattered low-top showers have broken out this afternoon across southeast Georgia and the Suwannee Valley as a quasi-stationary front slowly advances southward across southern GA. Meager instability and a strong mid-level inversion will effectively limit any chance for thunderstorms through the rest of the afternoon and evening. The front will continue to drift south tonight as high pressure over central Florida breaks down amd builds into the Ohio River Valley.

After a brief break in shower activity this evening, another round is expected overnight across southeastern GA. An upper trough axis will pivot across the Mid Atlantic states and overtop the stationary front tonight, providing sufficient lift through early Saturday. Isolated areas of inland southeast Georgia could receive up to an 1" of rain by sunrise on Saturday.

In addition to the rain overnight, patchy fog will likely develop along the nearly stalled frontal zone but away from the shower activity. Best chances for fog development will be inland northeast Florida west of the I-95 corridor. Locally dense fog will be possible in area through Saturday morning.

SHORT TERM [Saturday Through Sunday Night].

The quasi-stationary front will make more southward progress on Saturday as upper trough axis pivots into the western Atlantic and surface high pressure builds to the northwest. Scant instability and considerable cloudiness on Saturday should limit potential for widespread shower activity along the frontal zone. An upper cutoff low over west texas will spawn a surface cyclone in the northwestern GOMEX Sunday. This will lift the quasi-stationary frontal zone northward as a warm front, warm-sectoring the area. Mass response from deepening surface low to the west will increase bulk and low- level shear parameters, however very weak instability will be a limiting factor. If enough instability is generated and convection can initiate successfully, strong to severe storms will be possible Saturday afternoon and evening ahead of the cold front. Run-to-run model consistency has fallen of a bit regarding the timing of the attendant cold front which now looks to pass through Monday morning/afternoon rater than late Sunday/early Monday. Temps will remain above average through the weekend.

LONG TERM [Monday Through Friday].

Potent cold front will track eastward across the region on Monday, bringing drier air, breezy conditions, and significant drop in temperatures through early next week.

As the front passes through Monday a squall line of showers and t- storms will precede it. Temperatures will drop substantially from Monday to Tuesday with highs on Tuesday forecast to stay in the 50s. Lows on Tuesday morning will dip into the mid 30s across southeast Georgia and Suwanee Valley while the upper 30s/low 40s are likely across along the coast and north-central Florida. As the post-frontal northerly breezes lighten morning lows will drop further Wednesday morning with readings at or below freezing inland and to the upper 30s along the coast. Temps will gradually rebound through the end of the week as surface high shifts offshore and another low pressure system and reinforcing cold front develops to our west. Rain chances will increase with the approach of the late week cold front.

MARINE.

Current forecast was on tack with light winds and seas at or below 4 ft rest of tonight. Introduced some patchy fog for the nearshore waters and included a marine weather statement for the fog. It is possible fog may disperse a bit after about 4 or 5 AM Saturday as a cold frontal boundary pushes into the region.

HYDROLOGY.

Rainfall is expected through the weekend ahead of a developing low pressure system. However, rainfall will be short-lived and is not expected to result in any substantial hydrologic concerns.
