high pressure centered near bermuda will continue to extend its axis westward across the northeast florida waters through Thursday, keeping a prevailing southerly wind flow in place across our local waters. Evening wind surges may briefly bring speeds up towards caution levels, especially offshore, through midweek. A weak cold front entering the southeastern states on Thursday may stall over the georgia waters by Friday, resulting in a brief period of light and variable wind directions across our local waters. Southwesterly winds may strengthen somewhat during the weekend ahead of another approaching cold front, which could bring chances for showers and Thunderstorms by Sunday afternoon and evening.

UPDATE
Issued at 1228 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Early afternoon surface analysis depicts Atlantic high pressure (1026 millibars) centered near Bermuda, with this feature extending its axis westward across the FL peninsula
Aloft
stout ridging remains in place over the Bay of Campeche (southwestern Gulf of Mexico), with this ridge axis extending northward through the lower Mississippi Valley and through the Plains states. This ridge continues to create deep and dry northwesterly flow aloft, with large dewpoint depressions continuing below 850 millibars (around 5,000 feet) per the morning sounding at Jacksonville. This very dry air mass was again suppressing cumulus cloud development throughout our region, with sunny skies boosting temperatures at the noon hour to the upper 70s and lower 80s area-wide. Dewpoints at 16Z were falling through the 40s and low to mid 50s.

Our tranquil weather pattern will continue during the balance of the work week, with a loose local pressure gradient allowing the Atlantic and Gulf coast sea breezes to develop and move well inland during the afternoon and early evening hours, with these boundaries likely colliding near the U.S. Highway 301 corridor shortly after sunset this evening. The atmosphere will remain too dry and subsident for more than scattered, flat cumulus development along this boundaries later this afternoon and this evening, and plenty of sunshine will combine with rising heights aloft to allow highs to soar to the mid and upper 80s at all inland locations this afternoon, while an onshore breeze keeps coastal highs generally in the lower 80s.

Southerly low level flow overnight will begin to increase moisture levels enough for patchy fog formation towards sunrise across north central FL, with fog possibly extending into southern portions of the St. Johns River basin. Thin cirrus cloudiness will begin to spill over the ridge axis located to our west, with this cloudiness beginning to move over inland southeast GA and the Suwannee Valley towards sunrise. Otherwise, surface winds will again decouple towards midnight, with better radiational cooling conditions expected tonight, allowing lows to fall to the mid and upper 50s inland, while a light southerly breeze continues along the immediate coast, keeping lows in the lower 60s for locations east of Interstate 95 early on Tuesday morning.

AVIATION
(12Z TAFS)
Issued at 627 AM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

VFR conditions will will prevail throughout the 12Z TAF period.
Few to scattered mid and high level clouds still over the area will depart and thin out through the morning hours with sunny skies into midday before more cirrus clouds arrive as high pressure remains over the area this morning, centering just south of the terminals across central FL. The Atlantic seabreeze will otherwise be the main feature today as it moves inland across much of the TAF sites from 17-20Z this afternoon, turning winds southeasterly around 10-12 knots at SGJ, SSI and CRG and just under 10 knots at JAX, VQQ, and GNV. Winds will diminish after sunset and be variable overnight as the high shifts more east of the area with few to scattered cirrus clouds arriving from the northwest.

MARINE
Issued at 1228 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

High pressure centered near Bermuda will continue to extend its axis westward across the northeast Florida waters through Thursday, keeping a prevailing southerly wind flow in place across our local waters. Seas of 2-3 feet will prevail near shore during the next several days. Evening wind surges may briefly bring speeds up towards Caution levels of 15-20 knots offshore, where seas will build slightly to 3-4 feet tonight.

A weak cold front entering the southeastern states on Thursday may stall over the Georgia waters by Friday, resulting in a brief period of light and variable wind directions across our local waters. Southwesterly winds may strengthen somewhat during the weekend ahead of another approaching cold front, which could bring chances for showers and thunderstorms by Sunday afternoon and evening.

Rip Currents: Developing onshore winds each afternoon will combine with a lingering easterly ocean swell to keep a moderate rip current risk at all area beaches.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 1228 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

A very dry air mass will be slow to loosen its grip over our region this week, resulting in relative humidity values crashing to near critical thresholds during the afternoon hours today and again on Tuesday. Otherwise, light westerly transport winds early this afternoon will shift to southwesterly across inland portions of southeast GA, with speeds increasing to around 10 mph this afternoon. Transport winds across northeast and north central FL will shift to southeasterly this afternoon. Elevated mixing heights and slightly higher transport speeds will create good daytime dispersion values across most of inland southeast GA, with fair values forecast elsewhere. Southeasterly transport winds will become breezy by Tuesday afternoon across northeast and north central FL, which will combine with elevated mixing heights to create good daytime dispersion values. Southerly transport winds around 10 mph will result in mainly fair daytime dispersion values across southeast GA on Tuesday. Transport winds will then shift to southerly on Wednesday area-wide, with breezy southeasterly surface winds expected at coastal locations during the afternoon hours. Elevated mixing heights will continue, creating good daytime dispersion values at most locations.

HYDROLOGY
Issued at 1228 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Water levels are cresting today in a moderate flood along the Alapaha River near the Statenville gauge. Water levels are expected to fall back to minor flooding by early Wednesday morning, followed by the river falling below flood stage late on Thursday. Minor flooding that will be occurring along lower portions of the Suwannee River this week will also result in continued rises in water levels along lower portions of the Santa Fe River, with ongoing minor flooding rising to moderate flood levels by Thursday morning and then approaching a major flood during the early portions of next week. Water levels along the lower Santa Fe near the gauge at Hildreth are expected to rise above flood stage on Tuesday night, with minor flooding then continuing during the next several days.

Water levels have crested just below a moderate flood along the Satilla River near the gauge at Waycross, with water levels expected to fall below flood stage later this week. Minor flooding will continue during the next several days along the lower Satilla River around the Atkinson gauge. Water levels have risen above flood stage along upper portions of the Altamaha River near the Baxley gauge, where minor flooding is forecast to continue through early Friday morning. Water levels are still expected to crest just below flood stage along upper portions of the Altamaha River near the Charlotteville gauge towards midweek Otherwise, water levels have fallen below flood stage along portions of the St. Marys River near the Moniac gauge, with levels expected to remain below flood stage downstream at the gauge near Macclenny.
