New AVIATION

NEAR TERM
(Today and tonight)
Issued at 316 AM EDT Mon Jun 24 2024

Stout mid-level ridging remains entrenched across the southern parts of the US. Meanwhile, troughing off the East Coast will help send a "cold" front our way through the day. This front will act as a focus for a few showers and thunderstorms developing early this afternoon across southeast Alabama and southwest Georgia. As these storms move generally south to southeastward, they will eventually clash with the sea breeze along the Emerald Coast, resulting in increasing coverage in the Florida Panhandle late this afternoon. Fewer storms are expected farther to the east, but isolated storms cannot be ruled out. The presence of some mid-level dry air will yield DCAPE around 900-1100 J/kg, which will result in some strong downbursts in the stronger storms.

Given the ridge's influence and 850 mb temperatures around 19-21 C, high temperatures will soar in the middle 90s to near 100. The highest temperatures will be across the eastern parts of the area, but the highest moisture will be over the western areas. This poses a difficult heat index forecast. Most of our FL counties will see heat index values climb to 105-110, so have issued a Heat Advisory for most of the Florida counties outside of the coastal strip from Jefferson to Dixie County. The highest confidence in reaching this criteria is in the FL Panhandle. Farther north in AL and GA, heat index values of 102-107 are expected, just shy of heat advisory criteria. Either way, dangerous heat is expected. Those working or playing outside for any length of time should take frequent breaks in the shade or air conditioning and stay hydrated.

SHORT TERM
(Tuesday through Wednesday night)
Issued at 316 AM EDT Mon Jun 24 2024

On Tuesday a weak front may stall out somewhere near our GA/AL counties, bringing in a slightly drier airmass. Along with some mid level ridging still remaining overhead, this drier airmass will allow highs to climb into the 99 to 102 degree range across most inland areas Tuesday afternoon. Mid 90s are expected closer to the coast. Max heat indices are forecast in the 104 to 114 degree range, with heat advisory conditions looking likely across most Florida counties and perhaps into the first row of GA/AL counties as well. Conditions improve just a bit for Wednesday with the ridge finally retreating some back to the west, with highs in the low 90s near the coast and the mid to upper 90s inland. A few spots may still hit heat advisory criteria, but confidence is lower on Wednesday.

Scattered showers and storms are expected across the area both afternoons, with the highest coverage expected generally across Florida due to the seabreeze and northwesterly steering flow.
Forecast soundings are a bit concerning with the potential for damaging wind gusts. Forecast DCAPE values are between 1500-1700 J/Kg for a lot of the area along with a pretty large inverted V.
Both days will see the potential for damaging winds with any storms that develop.

LONG TERM
(Thursday through Sunday)
Issued at 316 AM EDT Mon Jun 24 2024

A bit of troughiness continues across the eastern CONUS to start out the long term period before another ridge tries to push into the area. While high temps are forecast to start out in the low to mid 90s on Thursday, they are forecast to creep back up into the mid to upper 90s for the weekend. Daily showers and storms will still be possible, however overall coverage may be lower than currently forecast depending on the strength of the ridge.

AVIATION
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 134 PM EDT Mon Jun 24 2024

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected throughout the afternoon today into this evening. Gusty winds and frequent lightning will be possible with the stronger storms. MVFR conditions will be possible within thunderstorms, otherwise VFR conditions are expected for the rest of the TAF period at all terminals. Rain and thunderstorm chances increase again for Tuesday afternoon following 18Z.

MARINE
Issued at 316 AM EDT Mon Jun 24 2024

Mainly southwesterly winds should hold through today before teetering between westerly and southwesterly afterwards. Seas will generally be between 1 to 3 feet, with the 3 foot waves being favored west of Apalachicola. However, long-period swells will continue through the period as a disturbance sits off northeast Mexico. Nightly chances of showers and storms will be possible over the waters with the highest chances east of Apalachicola.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 316 AM EDT Mon Jun 24 2024

Transport winds will generally be out of the west to southwest around 10 to 15 mph each afternoon. This combined with very high mixing heights will lead to good to high dispersions each afternoon.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are also expected each afternoon across the area. Storms will be capable of producing gusty, erratic winds and frequent lightning. Outside of storms, dangerous heat is expected with temperatures in the upper 90s to near 100 and heat index values a few degrees either side of 110.

HYDROLOGY
Issued at 307 PM EDT Sun Jun 23 2024

No major changes to the forecast as moisture will continue to infiltrate the region due to. A large trough will sit over the east, while high pressure retrogrades west. Daily chances for showers and thunderstorms will be possible, some of which could produce heavy rain. Overall, widespread rainfall totals of 1-2 inches is expected over the next 7 days.
