Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tallahassee FL 753 PM EST Fri Dec 6 2019
Trimmed back PoPs in our AL counties as that rainfall has moved south into the FL panhandle. Short term models still indicate some light rainfall across the aforementioned areas so did not pull PoPs completely. Other grids looked reasonable so no other major changes needed. Updates sent.
PREV DISCUSSION [229 PM EST].
NEAR TERM [Through Tonight].
Fast moving shortwave currently moving into central Alabama is expected to weaken through the evening hours as it pushes off the southeastern U.S. coast. Associated area of showers and thunderstorms is expected to weaken as well, as forcing diminishes and it moves into a much drier and more stable airmass. Best rain chances will be through early evening across southeast Alabama into the Florida Panhandle. Rain chances will diminish rapidly to the east with time. Expect low temperatures to range from the mid 50s along the panhandle coast to the mid 40s in the Suwannee Valley.
SHORT TERM [Saturday Through Sunday Night].
A weak area of low pressure develops in the wake of the shortwave trough and lingers in the northern Gulf this weekend, producing widespread cloudiness and some showers. Given the location of this system combined with greater instability over our waters, some isolated marine thunderstorms are possible. Highest PoPs are in our offshore and coastal zones (generally 40-60%). Temperatures will continue to trend upward with highs in the mid-to-upper 60s and lows in the 50s.
LONG TERM [Monday Through Friday].
Moisture around the northeastern Gulf diminishes, along with rain chances through early Tues. Thereafter, a strong cold front arrives, bringing widespread showers through early Wed. High temperatures will be in the mid-to-upper 70s Mon-Tues (lows in the upper 50s). Once the front passes rain chances decrease some, and temperatures drop sharply with highs in the upper 50s/low 60s. The coldest nights will be Thurs and Fri with lows in the upper 30s. PoPs remain in the forecast (around 20%) through the end of the period as models are hinting at the development of a Gulf low late next Fri/early Sat from a shortwave trough emerging into the TX coast from the northwest. The exact track and strength of the system is uncertain at this time.
AVIATION. [Through 00Z Sunday]
RA will affect ECP through about 0130Z then that area of rain will move into the Gulf. Low chances of rain may redevelop across SE AL and SW GA and have left out of the TAFs at this time. Overnight, DHN could fall to low MVFR while the other sites will remain predominately VFR with mid cloud decks 040-070.
Fair marine conditions are expected to increase to cautionary levels by Sat night and may briefly reach advisory levels on Sun thanks to a low-pressure system over the northern Gulf. Winds then relax some and veer to southwesterly ahead of a strong cold front. By Tues night, winds increase to cautionary levels again and veer the north and northeast. Small-craft advisories are likely to be issued for Wed.
Red flag conditions are not expected at least for the next several days.
The heaviest rain in the forecast will be offshore. Spotty showers are expected over land this period with a little more coverage as a cold front passes through. However, QPF estimates are generally less than 0.10". Therefore, flooding is not a concern.
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.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
