Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 139 PM EDT Sun Apr 18 2021

AVIATION. [Through 18Z Monday]

Cigs will improve at ECP and TLH through 00z with brief MVFR in SHRA/TSRA, otherwise VFR. Already VFR at ABY and DHN which will continue. MVFR cigs should prevail at VLD until 12z, with brief TSRA this evening. Winds light and variable to NW around 5 kts.

PREV DISCUSSION [1009 AM EDT].

NEAR TERM [Through Tonight].

Current showers and thunderstorms across the region this morning will slowly slide south throughout the rest of the morning hours and into the early afternoon. These showers thunderstorms are expected to be ongoing throughout the day across the Big Bend of Florida. Points north of the Big Bend will remain cloudy; however, the bulk of the precipitation will predominantly remain to the south. A few showers may creep into inland Florida locations; however, locations across Georgia and Alabama will likely dry out by mid to late morning. Overall, portions of the Big Bend could see upwards of 1-2 inches again on Sunday, with higher totals predominantly across Dixie, Taylor, and Lafayette counties. Given that cloud cover will linger for much of the day, especially across southern portions of the area, temperatures will only climb into the low 70s across all Florida zones. Points north of the Florida state line will likely reach the mid 70s, and certain locations that can break out of the cloud cover for longer periods of the day may reach the upper 70s to near 80 degrees. Overnight Sunday, lows will fall into the mid to upper 50s across the region.

SHORT TERM [Monday Through Tuesday].

The front and much of the rainfall are nudged a little further south into the Florida peninsula in response to a southward diving upper level trough into the Plains. The highest chances for rainfall will reside in the eastern Florida Big Bend Monday and Monday night and this is where the bulk of the rainfall will be confined as well. The upper trough will support a surface cold front which will reach the Mid-South by the end of the short term period. A quick dose of high pressure will be wedged between the two surface fronts. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s both Monday and Tuesday.

LONG TERM [Tuesday Night Through Sunday].

By Tuesday night the upper level trough digs into SE CONUS and finally moves the stationary boundary out into the Atlantic. A dry cold front moves through Wednesday with winds switching to the north, cool Canadian high pressure dives through the Plains, and cooler and drier air arrive for a short time. A rather potent upper low swings through the desert southwest Friday with low pressure developing in the Plains and kicking out into the southeast Saturday. Another cool shot of high pressure dives behind that system for Sunday.

MARINE.

Through mid- week, the potential for showers and thunderstorms will impact all offshore waters during this period is likely. These storms will have the potential to produce gusty winds and hail. Winds will generally remain around 10-15 knots with seas generally less than 4 feet through the period.

FIRE WEATHER.

Besides low dispersions across all Florida zones today, there are no fire weather concerns at this time, as wet conditions are still expected to linger across the region for the next day or two.

HYDROLOGY.

The stalled front will remain the focus for showers and thunderstorms through Tuesday. The front will slowly sag south as time moves on with the heaviest of the precipitation likely in the eastern Florida Big Bend with lesser amounts northward. In the Big Bend area, 2-4 inches is possible with isolated higher amounts to 1-2 inches into southern Georgia and lesser amounts into southeast Alabama and the western Florida panhandle. These rainfall amounts will fall over the next few days so the longer duration lessens the risk of widespread flooding. However, heavier and training of storms could lead to localized urban and poor drainage flooding especially where recent heavy rainfalls have occurred.

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.
