Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Coastal Hazard Statement  Statement as of 3:25 PM CST on November 23, 2014


... High surf advisory remains in effect until midnight CST
tonight...

... High rip current risk remains in effect until 3 am CST
Monday...

* surf: around 6 feet along Walton and Bay County beaches.

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.

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area... producing rip currents and localized beach
erosion.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tallahassee Florida 
842 PM EST sun Nov 23 2014 


Near term [through tonight]... 
potent shortwave, which kicked off the isolated severe weather 
this afternoon/evening, has moved rapidly to the northeast and out 
of the forecast area. However, the main front remains well to the 
west along the central Gulf Coast, with the primary trough axis 
even further west. With deep-layer onshore flow still in place, 
and some minimal elevated instability as noted in the ktae 00z 
sounding, most of the guidance continues to generate scattered 
showers and isolated thunderstorms through the night from the 
Florida Panhandle into south central Georgia. The lowest levels 
have stabilized with temperatures and dewpoints in the low to mid 
60s, so severe wx should not be an issue. However, will keep pops 
elevated through the night. 


&& 


Aviation... 
[through 00z tuesday] with the primary squall line east of all 
terminals at this time, the threat for strong thunderstorms is 
over. Strong low-level winds will still force a narrow band of 
showers with possibly an isolated storm for the next couple of 
hours, though this should only impact kaby and kecp with some IFR 
visibilities. Expect IFR ceilings to overspread all terminals 
shortly after midnight, expected to last through at least mid- 
morning tomorrow. Restrictions will only gradually improve from 
kaby to ktlh eastward, with VFR expected to return to the west by 
midday. 


&& 


Prev discussion [416 PM est]... 


Short term [monday through Tuesday night]... 


The northern stream longwave trough will deepen through the period 
as a couple more +pv anomalies dive through the middle Mississippi 
Valley and another through the Southern Plains. It won't be until 
the southernmost anomaly sweeps through the southeast that rain 
will come to an end across the tri-state region. 


In the meantime, a weak surface boundary and some southern stream 
forcing will keep a chance for showers in the forecast on Monday 
although the synoptic front will be west of the region. Ahead of 
the front we'll likely be able to squeeze out one more day of 
middle 70s across the region. The front will pass to the east of 
US overnight with temperatures cooling into the low 50s and upper 
40s. On Tuesday, we'll likely be able to generate a little more 
coverage across the region under some diffluence aloft between the 
approaching northern stream shortwave and the departing southern 
stream anomaly. This will all be Post frontal, cool rain with 
afternoon highs in the upper 50s area-wide. Rain will continue 
through the night Tuesday with lows dipping to around 40 degrees. 




Long term [wednesday through sunday]... 


Rain will come to an end from southwest to northeast on Wednesday 
as the northern stream shortwave finally clears out the moisture 
and Ushers in dry air. Wednesday night through Thursday night 
expect lows in the mid to upper 30s. We'll finish the week with 
afternoon highs and overnight lows gradually climbing back up to 
seasonal averages. 




Marine... 


A prolonged period of at least cautionary winds, and sometimes 
advisory level will continue through mid-week when high pressure 
will build into the southeast. Showers will be possible through 
Wednesday, and then dry to finish the week. 




Fire weather... 


A drier airmass will move into the region for Monday. However, 
humidity values are still forecast to remain well above critical 
values, so there are no fire weather concerns. 




Hydrology... 


Widespread rainfall totals of 1-3 inches have occurred over most of 
the area overnight and through the morning hours. Heavy rain with a 
squall line this afternoon and evening will exit the area by 
midnight, with additional amounts of
