Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 631 AM EST Sat Dec 14 2019

AVIATION. [Through 12Z Sunday]

Rainfall has moved east of the area with low stratus filling in behind it, which stretches west into central Mississippi. L/VLIFR conds are the rule currently at all TAF sites. Based on hi-res short term models, conds will slowly improve through the morning hours with a return to VFR by the early afternoon. No more rainfall is expected and winds will generally be from the northwest. Overnight tonight, signals are pointing to another fog event with L/VLIFR conds a distinct possibility.

PREV DISCUSSION [155 AM EST].

NEAR TERM [Through Today].

Rain will be coming to an end early this morning from west to east as the mid level trough axis moves through and rapid drying takes place behind it. Clouds will decrease with peaks of the sun beginning by late morning/early afternoon. Some patchy fog will hang around and dissipate by mid morning as well. Highs will reach the 60s today; low 60s across southeast AL northeast to the Flint river area of SW GA to the upper 60s south of I-10 to the coast.

SHORT TERM [Tonight Through Monday].

The main concern this weekend into early next week will be the potential for fog tonight into Sunday morning. The pattern is favorable and the guidance is supportive of fog away from the coast. Have introduced patchy fog into the forecast.

Otherwise, clouds will increase on Monday in advance of the next cold front. Cannot rule out a shower mainly in the Dothan area, but no thunder is expected as instability is limited.

Temperatures near normal in the 60s on Sunday warming well into the 70s on Monday.

LONG TERM [Monday Night Through Saturday].

The main concern continues to be the potential for thunderstorms on Tuesday, and temperatures around freezing Thursday Morning.

The next cold frontal passage is slated for Tuesday, with the Euro ensembles less progressive compared to the GFS ensembles. If the Euro solution verifies, there would be a longer window for thunderstorms during Tuesday. That said, the setup is not favorable for severe weather at this time. Despite the strong wind field, greater forcing for ascent is well north of the area and instability is limited. Maintained a slight chance of thunder in the forecast.

A much colder air mass will settle over the area by Thursday morning. The guidance continues to show a strong signal for low temperatures in the upper 20s to lower 30s away from the Gulf coast. Otherwise, highs around 70 on Tuesday will fall into the 50s for Wednesday and Thursday, then moderate back into the 60s by Friday.

Another overrunning regime will setup Friday into Saturday, with a surface high pressure wedge across the area, and mid- level energy inducing low pressure development in the gulf. At this time, expect considerable cloudiness with a chance of showers. The pattern does not favor heavy rainfall at this time, but the cool northeasterly flow and cloudiness would lock in below average temperatures.

MARINE.

Elevated westerly winds today will diminish tonight with tranquil boating conditions expected on Sunday. Thereafter, winds and seas will become elevated, with advisory level conditions expected by mid-week.

FIRE WEATHER.

Rain will come to an end this morning with drier conditions expected into early next week. No hazardous fire weather conditions are expected.

HYDROLOGY.

The next chance for precipitation will be centered on late Monday into early Wednesday, with amounts up to one inch possible. Despite a wetter pattern recently, these modest amounts are not expected to lead to any flooding concerns.

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.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
