Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Coastal Hazard Statement  Statement as of 8:31 am CDT on September 1, 2014


... High rip current risk in effect until 7 PM CDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Tallahassee has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect until 7 PM CDT this evening.

* Location... Bay County beaches.

* Timing... through this evening

* beach flags... red.

* Surf... 2 to 3 feet.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents. Rip currents are powerful
channels of water flowing quickly away from shore... which occur
most often at low spots or breaks in The Sandbar and in the
vicinity of structures such as groins... jetties and piers. Heed
the advice of lifeguards and the beach patrol. Pay attention to
flags and posted signs. If you become caught in a rip current...
do not panic. Remain calm and begin to swim parallel to shore.
Once you are away from the force of the rip current... begin to
swim back to the beach. Do not attempt to swim directly against a
rip current. Even a strong swimmer can become exhausted quickly.






 Record Report  Statement as of 02:34 am EDT on September 01, 2014


... Record high temperature set at Tallahassee...

A record high temperature of 97 degrees was set at Tallahassee
yesterday. This ties the old record of 97 set in 1998.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tallahassee Florida 
331 PM EDT Mon Sep 1 2014 


Near term [through tonight]... 
it's been a slow start so far with the afternoon convection, but 
this has been the pattern over the past couple of days. A few 
showers and storms have developed along the immediate coast, but 
limited activity has occurred inland. Visible satellite imagery show 
the East Coast sea breeze starting to move inland west of I-95 and 
it is expected that storms between tlh-jax will continue to develop 
through the late afternoon and early evening hours. Elsewhere, with 
limited forcing and drier air aloft, expect storms to end by sunset- 
if they even develop at all. After midnight, expect mostly clear 
skies and warm temperatures mainly in the lower 70s. 




Short term [tuesday through Wednesday night]... 


A slowly weakening 594 dm upper level ridge (which is currently 
centered over the cwa) will continue to dominate the synoptic 
pattern over the region as it slowly slides to the west. However, 
there is still plenty of deep layer moisture under this ridge, which 
when combined with very weak low level flow will keep pops generally 
in the 30-50% range both Tuesday and Wednesday, with most of the 
convective forcing generated by the sea breeze circulation. 
Afternoon temps will remain on the hot side as well, with highs 
still in the mid to upper 90s away from the coast. Overnight lows 
will continue to range from the lower to middle 70s inland to the 
middle to upper 70s near the coast. 




Long term [thursday through monday]... 


Although the synoptic pattern will be dominated by weak upper level 
ridging throughout most of the extended period, the positioning of 
the Bermuda high pressure system at the surface will still allow for 
an ample supply of deep layer moisture to advect in from the 
southeast. Additionally, the upper ridge is expected to weaken and 
retrograde westward over time, which should trend daytime pops at or 
even above climo levels (generally in the 30-50% range). While high 
and low temps are not expected to be nearly as warm as they have 
recently been, they should still average above climo, with highs 
generally in the lower to a few middle 90s, with lows still in the 
lower to middle 70s. 


&& 


Aviation... 


[through 18z tuesday] VFR conditions are likely to prevail through 
the period. A few storms may approach vld late this 
afternoon/evening but confidence isn't high enough to include more 
than a thunderstorms in the vicinity group for now. Visibility restrictions in the morning are 
unlikely. 


&& 


Marine... 


A very weak surface pressure pattern will dominate the coastal 
waters for the next several days, allowing the diurnal sea breeze 
circulation to govern the predominantly light winds. Seas that have 
been slightly elevated by a long southeasterly fetch during the past 
couple of days will diminish as well. 


&& 


Fire weather... 


Afternoon relative humidity values will remain well above critical 
levels, so red flag conditions are not expected through this week. 


&& 


Hydrology... 


Rivers in Georgia/Alabama remain very low, with a few points 
potentially reaching record low levels in the next couple of weeks 
if the unusually dry conditions continue. Rivers are not quite as 
low in Florida, though with little or no significant rainfall 
expected this week, the downward trend should continue.
