Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Jacksonville FL 1254 PM EST Fri Feb 28 2020

AVIATION. [Through 18Z Saturday]

VFR conditions will prevail at the regional terminals. West northwesterly surface winds sustained near 10 knots this afternoon will shift to southwesterly around 5 knots towards sunset. Broken ceilings around 9000 feet will briefly move over the SSI terminal this evening, followed by clearing towards midnight. Sustained west-northwesterly surface wind speeds will increase to 10-15 knots shortly after 14Z on Saturday, with frequent gusts of 20-25 knots expected after 15Z at the regional terminals.

PREV DISCUSSION [1054 AM EST].

NEAR TERM [Through Tonight].

Today . After light freeze/frost over inland areas early this morning temps increase to around 60 degrees this afternoon under Sunny skies, still below normal levels for late February. West winds will increase ahead of approaching trof to 10-15 mph with gusts of 20-25 mph this afternoon.

Tonight . Trough passage expected from the NW with a brief period of clouds across SE GA otherwise Mostly Clear skies are expected with West winds remaining elevated in the 5-10 mph range which will keep temps from falling as low as this morning, with lows in the middle to upper 30s inland and lower 40s along the coast. The elevated winds and drier airmass should prevent much in the way of any patchy frost formation so have kept out of the forecast, but the slightly higher winds will produce some wind chill values down close to the freezing mark around sunrise Saturday Morning.

SHORT TERM [Saturday Through Sunday].

Sat & Sat night . Breezy with passing clouds Sat as a couple of dry cold fronts sweep across the local area, mainly just reinforcing the cooler than normal and dry airmass in place across the deep south under deep layer NW flow. Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies expected as highs rebound into the low/mid 60s across NE FL to near 60 toward the Altamaha River basin under breezy WNW winds 15-20 mph with gusts 20-30 mph. Winds decrease Sat night as surface high builds over the area from the Gulf of Mexico and weak upper ridge builds over the SE region. Cool and dry airmass in place combined with ideal radiational cooling conditions will support low temps quickly falling into the low/mid 30s inland Sat night with a light inland freeze possible for parts of SE GA and inland frost extending southward across inland NE Florida.

Sun & Sun night . Airmass modifies with increasing moisture and temps as the surface ridge builds offshore of the local Atlantic coast and the upper ridge breaks down with increasing mid/high clouds later in the day and Sun night. Low level winds transition to SSE by Sun evening with high temperatures moderating into the mid/upper 60s inland to low 60s coast. Warming trend continues into Sun night with lows ranging from the upper 30s to low 40s inland to upper 40s/near 50 along the St. Johns River basin & Atlantic coast.

LONG TERM [Monday Through Friday].

Mon & Tue . Warming trend continues high pressure east of the region and increasing southerly flow ahead of next approaching front. Chance of mainly coastal showers late Mon into Tue as warm front pivots northward over the local area with fog potential Mon night as dew pts increase and winds remain light. Highs will warm to near to above climo values in the 70s Mon and near 80 inland Tue with daily sea breezes keeping coastal locales a few deg cooler. Mins will also rebound above normal and range in the 50s Mon night to 60s Tue under elevated SSW winds through the night ahead of the front in the 15-20 mph and gusty near bodies of water.

Wed & Wed night . Breezy Wed morning ahead of approaching cold front with speeds 15-25 mph and gusts nearing 35-45 mph before convection arrives. Rain chances increase from west to east Wed afternoon into Wed evening with a fast moving pre-frontal squall line, likely weakening as it enters our forecast area with the surface low and upper trough lifting NE across TN River Valley and mid-Atlantic region. Dynamical shear is impressive with this system per the GFS20 with 0-6 km bulk shear 60-80 kts, however instability will be quite limited with surface based CAPE barely over 200 J/kg. Will indicate isolated t'storms at best with this system based on latest trends. Model guidance consensus suggests this will be the best shot of wetting rainfall over the next week with about 0.25-0.50 inches focused north of the I-10 corridor, with less than a quarter inch across most of NE FL. Highs warm into the low/mid 80s Wed ahead of the front with lows falling into the 50s trailing the frontal passage Wed night with clearing skies.

Thu & Fri . Dry, mild and stable as surface high pressure centered over the Gulf Coast states extends a ridge axis across the local area with only a shallow cold airmass in place. Temperatures will trend cooler back closer to climo values with highs in the 60s/70s and lows in the 40s under mostly clear skies.

MARINE.

Westerly winds will become breezy this afternoon ahead of an approaching dry cold front that will move southeastward through our region early this evening. Winds will shift to west northwesterly by midnight, with speeds increasing to Small Craft Advisory levels early this evening offshore. High pressure will then build directly over our waters by Sunday morning, allowing winds and seas to quickly subside by late Saturday night. Southerly winds will increase beginning on Monday evening well in advance of the next cold front, with Small Craft Advisory conditions developing offshore by Tuesday.

FIRE WEATHER.

A very dry air mass will remain in place through Saturday. Northwesterly surface and transport winds late this morning will shift to westerly this afternoon, with transport winds becoming breezy and resulting in good dispersion values. Minimum relative humidity values will approach critical thresholds this afternoon, but sustained surface wind speeds will remain just below Red Flag Criteria today. Strong northwesterly transport winds, breezy west- northwesterly surface winds, low relative humidity values and high dispersion values will create elevated fire danger for much of the day on Saturday.

HYDROLOGY.

Runoff from heavy rainfall during the past month over central and northern Georgia continues to be routed southeastward through the main stem rivers in southeast Georgia. Moderate flooding continues along all of the Altamaha and Ocmulgee Rivers, with crests forecast today near Charlotteville, this weekend at Baxley and early next week further downstream. Minor flooding continues along portions of the Satilla, Alabaha and Little Satilla Rivers.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
