Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 755 PM EDT Mon Sep 28 2020

UPDATE.

Isolated showers continue through the I10 corridor from marianna down to tallahassee and so have raised PoPs some in this area. Looking west, a line of showers and storms through southern Alabama is encroaching on our western counties. Expect these to make it into our area while slowly weakening into the evening hours. The cold front will follow the line, making it into southeast Alabama and the western Florida panhandle by sunrise.

AVIATION. [Through 00Z Wednesday]

Ceilings are expected to lower into the IFR range as a cold front approaches. Some fog could affect TLH and VLD late tonight with LIFR conditions as well. Showers will increase in coverage along the front on Tuesday with a few thunderstorms possible as well.

PREV DISCUSSION [345 PM EDT].

NEAR TERM [Through Tuesday].

For the remainder of this afternoon, scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will be most concentrated across the southeast big bend with lesser coverage elsewhere.

Heading into tonight and Tuesday, a weakening line of convection is expected to spread into southeast Alabama before diminishing. Redevelopment of convection is likely starting late tonight into Tuesday as a fairly strong upper trough and cold front move through the region. Deep moisture characterized by precipitable water values over 2 inches is expected to return northward ahead of the front on Tuesday across the Florida big bend and south-central Georgia, so some localized pockets of heavy rain are possible. Instability and shear still do not look too favorable for severe storms.

SHORT TERM [Tuesday Night Through Wednesday Night].

As the deep upper level trough associated with the cold front continues to move east towards the Atlantic Coast, we'll continue to have decreasing PoPs behind it. Our eastern zones will remain in a stratiform precip regime into the over night hours Tuesday into Wednesday with clearing expected across the whole region by Wednesday morning. The NW wind shift with dry and cool air ahead of surface high pressure will quickly set in. High temperatures will be in the mid 70s, while low temperatures Wednesday morning will likely fall into the low to mid 50s throughout most of the region.

LONG TERM [Thursday Through Monday].

As the high pressure behind the frontal passage continues to set in on Thursday we'll continue to experience drier and cooler temps through the rest of the period. With high pressure dominating, the chances for precip are near zero percent. Temperatures will be comfortable throughout the region, ranging from mid 70s to low 80s for daytime highs, and between mid 50s and low 60s for overnight lows. Cooler temperatures associated with being further away from the Gulf Coast.

MARINE.

Winds and seas will increase behind a cold front on Tuesday with small craft exercise caution conditions likely and possibly low end advisory conditions as northwest winds increase to near 20 knots. Northerly winds and seas are expected to continue through the week.

FIRE WEATHER.

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

HYDROLOGY.

Rivers continue to gradually fall across the area. The heaviest rainfall on Tuesday is expected to be across the southeast big bend and south central Georgia where around an inch is expected on average. However, pockets of locally heavier rain amounts are likely in that area with pockets of minor poor drainage flooding possible.

SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT.

Spotter activation is not requested. However, spotters are always encouraged to safely report significant weather conditions when they occur (while following all local, state, and CDC guidelines) by calling the office or tweeting us @NWSTallahassee.

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