323 pm edt Wed aug 21 2019

Near term [through tonight]
Southeasterly flow has yielded convection along a westward moving
gulf seabreeze across north florida. Across al and ga convection is
initiating along a convergent axis at the western periphery of
surface ridging. Later this evening, the atlantic seabreeze may
reach the southeast big bend bringing a chance for showers and
storms. Expect storms to come to an end across the region after
sunset.

Short term [Thursday through Friday night]
A mid-level ridge over the eastern atlantic will continue to nose
its way across the tri-state region into Thursday. Relatively dry
air and widespread weak subsidence should keep thunderstorm and
shower activity across the fl big bend and SW ga below average
through Friday. Wpc is forecasting 1-3 day widespread rainfall
accumulations below 0.5 inches. This should come as a relief to
some of these areas that have seen +8 inches of rain last week and
allow river flooding along the econfina and steinhatchee to
slowly subside. With respect to temps, highs will be in the mid
90s while lows will be in the mid 70s.

Long term [Saturday through Wednesday]
The aforementioned ridge will begin to degrade across the region
as a short wave trough moves east across missouri and into the
ohio river basin over the weekend. Increasing low- to mid-level
moisture and enhanced low level convergence will allow for
increased shower and thunderstorm activity along the sea breeze
starting Saturday. Temps will be around climatological average for
this time of year.

Aviation
[through 18z Thursday]
vfr conditions will prevail outside of thunderstorms through the
afternoon and evening hours. There's the potential for MVFR ceilings
and visibility at ecp in the morning, with a borderline MVFR cloud
deck possible from aby to tlh eastward tomorrow morning.

Marine
Mostly calm conditions through the forecast period with south to
southeasterly wind around 10 knots. Wave heights will be 3 feet
or less with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Fire weather
Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue over
the next few days. Transport winds will generally be south-
southeast around 10 to 12 mph with surface winds light and
variable. With quick heating each day, mixing heights should top
out around 4500 to 5000ft.

Hydrology
A more typical summertime pattern of scattered seabreeze
thunderstorms is expected to continue for the next week, with no
threat for widespread flooding expected. Meanwhile, both the
econfina and steinhatchee rivers remain in flood stage as product
of the recent heavy rainfall. As mentioned in the short term
forecast, a slightly drier pattern is expected for the next two
to three days across those areas, thus allowing water levels
across flooding rivers to gradually drop.

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.
