Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 159 AM EST Mon Dec 9 2019

NEAR TERM [Through Today].

Patchy fog mainly north of I-10 will dissipate by mid-morning.

A weak wave of low pressure along a northward lifting warm front will maintain considerable cloudiness. A westerly flow aloft will limit gulf moisture, so expect no more than scattered showers, with greatest coverage west of the Flint and Apalachicola Rivers.

High temperatures will be above normal in the middle 70s away from the gulf coast.

SHORT TERM [Tonight Through Wednesday].

Potential for patchy fog the next couple of nights, and increasing rain chances Tuesday, which will persist into Wednesday.

With ample low-level moisture in place, expect low clouds and patchy fog across much of the area tonight and again Tuesday night mainly east of the Flint and Apalachicola Rivers.

A cold front will approach the region on Tuesday, with its passage complete on Wednesday morning. Precipitation chances will increase on Tuesday, especially west of an Albany to Panama City line, then persist into Wednesday across much of the region as an overrunning regime sets up north of the front. Highs on Tuesday around 80 degrees will fall into the mid-50s to mid-60s on Wednesday, with normals in the middle to upper 60s for reference.

LONG TERM [Wednesday Night Through Monday].

The main concern is a period of heavier rainfall in the Friday and Saturday time frame, associated with low pressure developing near the area, but any severe weather threat is low right now.

A complex pattern unfolds with the approach of a cold front and high pressure wedged southward into the area. There is a large amount of disagreement in the deterministic and ensemble model runs, but the trend has been to develop low pressure further northwest, which would put the area within the warm sector of the system. Instability is limited with trajectories off the cooler gulf waters, despite a modest wind field, so any severe weather threat is low.

As the system exits, a return to fair weather is expected on Sunday and Monday. High temperatures below normal in the mid-50s to mid-60s on Thursday and Friday moderate to at or above normal this weekend into early next week.

AVIATION. [Through 06Z Tuesday]

Ceilings lowering to IFR at all TAF sites with the exception of ECP to MVFR. Expect brief LIFR at VLD as well. Fog will also contribute to these restrictions, especially north of I-10. A slow improvement to VFR late morning/early afternoon. Winds east-southeast veering to south-southwest,and increasing to around 10 knots with gusts up to 20 knots by late morning.

MARINE.

Easterly winds will increase on Wednesday and Thursday with advisory level conditions possible outside of Apalachee Bay. Expect winds and seas to remain elevated into the weekend.

FIRE WEATHER.

Outside of patchy morning fog and high dispersions across portions of the region on Tuesday, a wet pattern precludes any hazardous fire weather concerns.

HYDROLOGY.

A wet pattern will be in place through the weekend with the potential for heaviest rainfall centered on Friday and Saturday, when up to around an inch of rainfall is possible. Overall, total rainfall of 1-2 inches is possible through the weekend. Given rather dry antecedent conditions, there are no flooding concerns at this time.

SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT.

Spotter activation is not requested. However, spotters are always encouraged to safely report significant weather conditions when they occur by calling the office or tweeting us @NWSTallahassee.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases.

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