Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 825 PM EDT Tue Sep 29 2020

UPDATE.

The last of the rainfall associated with the departing low pressure system will end across the Florida Big Bend and south central Georgia over the next few hours. Removed rain chances from the eastern sections of our CWA a little quicker than advertised. Mid/high clouds will continue to decrease from west to east with maybe a few remnants by sunrise. Lows tonight will fall into the 50s, around 4-8 degrees below average for late September.

AVIATION. [Through 00Z Thursday]

Have VCSH at VLD through 02Z. Otherwise, no rainfall is expected. Conds are VFR throughout the TAF sites with mid/high clouds moving from southwest to northeast. The clearing line is just west of DHN/ECP currently and skies will overspread the rest of the area by daybreak. Winds will be from the northwest through the TAF period.

PREV DISCUSSION [202 PM EDT].

NEAR TERM [Through Wednesday].

The cold front is slowly making eastward progress across our forecast area. As of 1 PM EDT the front was roughly on a line from near Tifton, GA to St. Marks, FL. While most of the convection is along and ahead of the front, post frontal showers extend as far west as our Florida panhandle and southeast Alabama zones. By late this evening, we expect rain will have ended for all but the eastern Big Bend and our far eastern GA zones with rain ending at those locations by midnight. Cooler and much drier air will filter in behind the front with overnight lows in the lower to mid 50s except upper 50s along the coast and far southeast Big Bend. Wednesday will be a pleasant fall day with sunny skies, highs in the mid to upper 70s, lower afternoon relative humidity, ands light northerly winds.

SHORT TERM [Wednesday Night Through Thursday Night].

Fall-like weather will be here to stay for a while this time. A long-wave trough will continue to amplify over the region during this period with surface high pressure west of the region funneling dry cool air into the forecast area. Lows will be in the mid 50s most areas Wednesday night, with upper 50s to around 60 on Thursday night. Highs Thursday will be in the lower 80s. These are below normal values. Normal highs for this time of year are in the mid 80s with normal lows generally in the lower 60s.

LONG TERM [Friday Through Tuesday].

The long wave trough will remain over the eastern U.S through the period as a series of short waves rotate through it. The strongest of these will sweep through Sunday and Sunday night. By that time, surface high pressure will have built eastward to a position along and off the Southeast U.S. coast. This will set up easterly flow which will bring enough moisture westward from the Atlantic to return slight chance PoPs to the forecast across our southeastern counties by Saturday night. Highest PoPs (20-30%) will be on Sunday across the eastern half of the forecast area with slight chance PoPs lingering in these areas into Tuesday. Highs will be 75-80 degrees Friday through Sunday, with upper 70s to lower 80s Monday and Tuesday. The coolest morning will be Saturday with lows in the lower 50s across our northwestern counties. This is a welcome change form a year ago when we established new all-time monthly high temperatures each of the first four days in October 2019. The aforementioned surface high should keep anything that develops over the northwest Caribbean Sea well south of the area.

MARINE.

Post-frontal offshore winds are at advisory levels and will remain elevated into Wednesday morning before subsiding. Another dry cold front will sweep across the waters Thursday night bringing a return to cautionary to advisory level winds for Friday through the weekend.

FIRE WEATHER.

No fire weather concerns at least for the next several days, despite a drier air mass moving in.

HYDROLOGY.

Pre-frontal rainfall totals will generally be an inch or less across our eastern Big Bend and South Central GA counties, although locally higher amounts are possible. These same areas remain under a marginal risk for excessive rainfall, although that threat does appear to be diminishing. Very light rainfall amounts are expected behind the front through this evening. The only river gage that remains above flood stage is the Chipola River at Scott's Ferry.

SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT.

Spotter activation is not requested. However, spotters are always encouraged to safely report significant weather conditions when they occur (while following all local, state, and CDC guidelines) by calling the office or tweeting us @NWSTallahassee.
