Aviation
[through 00z Monday] scattered thunderstorms will gradually
diminish this evening, but they may linger near aby through the
evening hours. Low ceilings may develop late tonight around dhn,
aby, and vld with MVFR or possibly ifr conditions. Scattered
thunderstorms are expected again for Sunday afternoon.

Prev discussion [250 pm edt]
Near term [through tonight]
Already seeing a few showers and thunderstorms on the radar this
afternoon and will continue to see additional development. The
highest chances are across the inland areas through this evening.

Convection will linger into the first half of tonight and while
chances will decrease for the second half of the night, a few storms
will remain possible. Temperatures tonight will only fall into the
mid 70s, a few degrees above normal.

Short term [Sunday through Monday night]
At the mid and upper levels, a shortwave trough will dig into the
southern plains and amplify the patter on Sunday and then it will
swing into the southern ms valley on Monday. At the low levels,
we'll be situated to the northeast of weak ridging and to the west
of a weak low (invest 98l). Rich tropical moisture will remain on
tap over the tri-state area both days, with pw values hovering
around 2-2.5". This pattern, along with our diurnal seabreeze
circulation, should combine to make for active showers and
thunderstorms each afternoon and evening. Highs will be in the upper
80s to low 90s and lows will be in the low 70s.

Long term [Tuesday through Saturday]
The upper level shortwave will lift northeastward, while a series of
shortwave trough eject into the longwave trough to our north. This
will keep the upper level trough over just north of the area
basically through the period. Tropical moisture will continue to
influence the area through around Thursday. Thursday night Friday, a
much drier air mass (associated with a weak front) will attempt to
push into the region, but will likely be shunted back north over the
weekend. Highs will be in the upper 80s to low 90s and lows will be
in the low-mid 70s.

Marine
Light winds and low seas will continue outside of thunderstorms
through Tuesday night. Winds will increase slightly around Wednesday
as the pressure gradient tightens. There will be daily chances for
storms, which will peak in the late night and early morning hours.

Fire weather
Moist conditions and light winds will offset any fire weather
concerns over the next several days.

Hydrology
The steinhatchee river near cross city continues to fall through
minor flood stage. No other area river sites are in flood stage.

Rainfall accumulations from scattered thunderstorms over the next
week is expected to be around 2-3", with locally higher values.

Widespread flooding is not anticipated, but isolated heavy rainfall
could lead to local flooding.

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. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
