Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 721 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

New AVIATION

NEAR TERM
(Through Tuesday)
Issued at 236 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

High pressure conditions will continue through the rest of today and tonight with mostly clear skies, dry weather, and mild winds persisting through the forecast area. Potential for early morning fog developments Tuesday morning High temperatures for inland areas will be in the mid 80s for inland areas and in the upper 70s along the coastline. Overnight low temperatures will drop down into the mid 50s for inland areas and in the upper 50s and lower 60s near the shoreline.

SHORT AND LONG TERM
(Tuesday through Sunday)

An east-west high pressure ridge continues to hold strong Tuesday and Wednesday, with an upper level and surface low continuing off to the north and east and away from the area. This low and trailing cold front will break down the ridging a bit Wednesday Night and through Thursday, though the front is expected to stall and become very diffuse north of the area through this period as the flow aloft will be mostly zonal. This regime should keep the region dry, with just a good helping of mid and high clouds. Highs are still expected to climb into the 80s Wednesday and even close to 90 for some by Thursday.

Similar to Wednesday/Thursday, another front approaches from the north and west by Friday, but is also expected to weaken before it gets too close to the Gulf Coast. There may be enough energy left with this boundary for a some isolated convection, but chances are too low to include in the forecast for now. By the Saturday/Sunday time frame, yet another front moves towards the area, and unlike the previous scenarios, this boundary may have enough support and momentum aloft to cross into and possibly through the whole region, with chances for showers and t'storms returning. Very warm conditions will continue Friday and into at least the start of the weekend and perhaps through Sunday pending cold frontal timing.
Widespread 80s to around 90 are expected heading into the weekend, except near the coast.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 720 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Weak southerly low-level flow is showing signs of moistening the boundary layer. Surface dewpoints over the FL Panhandle have moistened into the 60s this afternoon, with 50s hanging on elsewhere. This will favor some late night fog or low stratus development over the inland Panhandle spreading north before sunrise into Southeast Alabama. This will put ECP and DHN at risk of a few hours of IFR or LIFR conditions from late tonight until roughly one hour after sunrise. Otherwise, fair weather will prevail.

MARINE
Issued at 236 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

From CWF Synopsis...Favorable marine conditions are expected this week with high pressure dominating. Southeast to south winds will be the rule through much of the week. A clocking of winds to the west and northwest appears possible by late week as a series of weak frontal boundaries drift into the southeast United States.
Rain chances are low through this week.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 340 AM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Dry conditions will persist over the next several days, though layer moisture will tend to increase through this time frame with a southerly flow regime. Dispersions are good this afternoon over inland areas, but are expected to be higher on Tuesday and likely Wednesday with similar to higher mixing heights and transport winds. RH values are approaching critical values over parts of GA counties, but will rise through Tuesday. This type of setup will also be favorable for fog potential through the next several mornings.

HYDROLOGY
Issued at 340 AM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

An areal flood warning remains for Leon County for the areas of Capitola, Chaires, and Baum of northeast Tallahassee. County emergency management reports hazardous standing water and several roadways remain closed.
