Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 309 AM EST Tue Dec 1 2020

. FREEZE WARNING IN EFFECT THIS MORNING AND AGAIN OVERNIGHT TONIGHT .

NEAR TERM [Through Tonight].

A cold and dry air mass will continue to push into the area today as high pressure settles in over the southeast CONUS. Freezing temperatures this morning will warm to the upper 40s to low/mid 50s this afternoon under sunny skies. Winds may still be a bit gusty this morning but should subside through the day and into tonight. Freezing temperatures are forecast again overnight tonight into Wednesday morning. While guidance suggests that tonight will be colder than this morning, there is some uncertainty on just how cold it will get. Some of the MOS guidance in particular is fairly aggressive with low temperatures in the mid/upper 20s across much of the area. However, there is the potential for cirrus from convection over the SW Gulf of Mexico to overspread the area from SW to NE during the night. This can be seen in some of the forecast soundings across the area. Since surface winds will be light to even calm tonight, the freezing temperatures are expected to develop via radiational cooling vs the advecting of a colder airmass like last night/this morning. If we have cirrus overhead, that could disrupt the efficiency of the radiational cooling we're able to get. Now the arrival time, density, and coverage of these high clouds is still fairly uncertain so its tough to know at the moment just how impactful they could be. Ended up going just a touch warmer than the previous forecast to account for this uncertainty, which still has near freezing or sub freezing temperatures for pretty much the whole area. Therefore, the freeze watch has been replaced with a Freeze Warning for tonight/early tomorrow morning.

SHORT TERM [Wednesday Through Thursday].

Wednesday morning will begin in the low 30s area wide but will warm to the mid 50s in the afternoon. A surface and upper-level high will be over the region on Wednesday allowing for some clouds to move in from the south. As we head into Thursday, an upper- level low will be approaching with a weak cold front, resulting in cloudy skies and a low chance for precipitation.

LONG TERM [Thursday Night Through Tuesday].

A weak cold front approaches the CWA Thursday night into Friday. Precip could be possible with this front although, confidence regarding this system is not high with PoPs remaining below 25 percent. The next cool down can be expected over the weekend with morning lows in the 40s. Highs for this term will be in the upper 50s, and low 60s.

AVIATION. [Through 06Z Wednesday]

VFR conditions are expected through the period.

MARINE.

Winds and seas will require small craft advisories to continue this morning. Conditions will then drop below headline criteria by this afternoon. We could see winds approach cautionary levels in easterly flow Wednesday night.

FIRE WEATHER.

A cold and dry airmass will continue to filter in across the region today. Dispersion may be high today with breezy transport winds. Winds will lower significantly heading into tonight and tomorrow, with low dispersions possible tomorrow. While low, relative humidity should remain above critical values, and fuel moisture is high from recent rainfall.

HYDROLOGY.

Recent rains were insufficient to cause any flooding concerns on areas rivers and forecast rainfall is low for the remainder of the week.

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.

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.
