Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 931 AM EDT Sat Jun 12 2021

. STRONG STORMS POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON .

UPDATE.

No updates to the forecast for this morning. 12z upper air sounding from Tallahassee showed the strong instability that is expected across the area this afternoon with MLCAPE just under 2000 J/kg. Minimum convective inhibition (CIN) will lead to a relatively early start to storms this afternoon (probably around noon or 1 ET) and continued growth through the afternoon hours is expected as further instability develops with daytime heating. Largest concerns today with any storms will be strong thunderstorm winds due to a combination of strong instability and dry air in the upper levels above 600mb. This meteorological setup can lead to enhanced microbursts in any thunderstorms. With mid-level flow expected to be elevated as a trough drops into the area, some storm organization is possible with 20-30 knots of shear anticipated to develop. While the biggest threat remains thunderstorm winds, a brief spin-up/tornado can't be ruled out across the Florida Panhandle and Big Bend, especially as the seabreeze potentially increases low level shear in combination with the enhanced mid-level flow aloft. Hail is also possible given the strong instability.

Storm development will likely center around two locations this afternoon. Initially storms will likely develop across the Panhandle/Big Bend near the seabreeze by noon and these will slowly progress inland towards the I-10 corridor with development largely being driven by outflow boundaries and daytime heating. Storms will also develop, as we're seeing now, across inland portions of AL/GA and move south as the associated mid-level trough drops south. These storms will move south through the day and eventually interact with the seabreeze. The severe threat will be greatest this afternoon as instability is maximized and storm organization grows.

PREV DISCUSSION [616 AM EDT].

NEAR TERM [Through Tonight].

A fairly high coverage of showers and thunderstorms is expected from late morning through this evening as an upper level disturbance moves southeastward with northwest flow aloft. The airmass is expected to be strongly unstable with SBCAPE near 3000 j/kg and DCAPE values near 1000 j/kg. Localized enhancement of the mid-level flow will aid in the potential for organized multicells to develop with gusty winds, a few of which could be marginally severe. Highs will generally be in the upper 80s to lower 90s with overnight lows in the 70s.

SHORT TERM [Sunday Through Monday].

A few impulses embedded within the NW flow aloft will rotate across the trough over the eastern CONUS through the short term period. Surface high pressure to the south will keep winds mostly westerly with PWs ranging from 1.8 to 2.0 inches. Showers and thunderstorms are expected both Sunday and Monday, with higher coverage expected on Sunday. Greater coverage is generally expected over the eastern portions of the area where deeper moisture resides. A combination of the seabreeze, leftover boundaries from earlier convection, and showers and storms moving into the area from the NW to N will all contribute to shower and thunderstorm development during the afternoon and evening hours. A bit of drier air could limit coverage somewhat on Monday. High temperatures are forecast in the low to mid 90s with low temperatures in the low to mid 70s.

LONG TERM [Monday Night Through Saturday].

The large scale pattern remains fairly steady through the long term period with troughing over the eastern CONUS and westerly to southwesterly surface winds over the area. A weak cold front is forecast to approach the area before stalling just to the north on Tuesday. While it's not likely the front will make it all the way through our area, it could serve as a mechanism to initiate some showers and thunderstorms along with the daily seabreeze each afternoon. With the proximity of the front, slightly cooler and drier air is expected in the wake of it with increased cloudiness along and ahead of it, which in turn will keep forecast high temperatures mostly in the mid 80s to low 90s across the area through the week. Low temperatures are forecast in the low to mid 70s.

AVIATION.

[Through 12Z Sunday] The coverage of showers and thunderstorms is expected to increase through the day with most areas expected to see storms near or over the terminals by the afternoon hours. Winds will be gusty near storms.

MARINE.

West to southwest winds and seas near 1 to 3 feet are expected through the period. Winds may reach caution criteria at times today and tonight. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible over the waters, with the greatest coverage expected this weekend.

FIRE WEATHER.

There are no significant fire weather concerns expected for the next several days.

HYDROLOGY.

There are no widespread flooding concerns expected for the next several days. However, with a fairly high coverage of showers and thunderstorms expected through this weekend, localized pockets of heavy rain are likely. We cannot rule out brief flooding in urban and poor drainage areas with the heavier storms.

SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT.

Spotter activation is requested. Spotters should safely report significant weather conditions and/or damage (while following all local, state, and CDC guidelines) by calling the office or tweeting us @NWSTallahassee.
