NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tallahassee Florida 
524 PM EST Mon Dec 22 2014 


..severe weather and flooding remain possible across the region 
on Tuesday and Wednesday... 


..updated for dense fog advisory... 


Near term [through tonight]... 
quick update to the forecast for tonight to add areas of dense fog 
into the forecast and issue a dense fog advisory. Visibilities have 
dropped into the 1/4 to 1/2 mile range at several reporting sites, 
and hi-res guidance forecasts this to continue through the night. In 
fact, if the hi-res guidance is correct, the dense fog advisory may 
need to be expanded later tonight. Otherwise, intermittent rain 
showers with isolated thunderstorms are also possible through the 
night. We saw a rare case today where there were actually 
thunderstorms occurring near areas of dense fog thanks to an 
unstable layer above the surface inversion. It's not too often that 
one sees a combination of dense fog and isolated thunderstorms in 
the forecast grids around here. Previous discussion is appended 
below. 


The warm front progression has slowed slightly. It has moved 
slightly north of its 12z position, still in the southeastern 
third of our forecast area. Convection has been the most 
persistent today right along this frontal boundary with showers in 
our northern counties tapering off briefly, but now redeveloping. 
Water vapor imagery shows a dry slot roughly from dts to dhn with 
developing thunderstorms to the east in srn Walton County. 
Forecast remains on track for intermittent rain showers with 
isolated thunderstorms this evening and overnight. Cloud cover and 
rainfall will keep daytime temperatures low, peaking in the 50s in 
southeast Alabama and SW Georgia, 60s in Florida. Overnight, temperatures 
will stay fairly close to their daytime maximum with persistent 
cloud cover expected. With such high moisture in the area, fog is 
expected to develop again overnight, similar to last night/this 
morning. 


&& 


Aviation... 
[through 00z wednesday] poor conditions will prevail through the 
period with frequent LIFR ceilings and visibility overnight. 
Visibility will improve some after sunrise on Tuesday, but then 
showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop in the 
afternoon, some of which may be severe. 


&& 


Prev discussion [436 PM est]... 


Short term [tuesday through Wednesday night]... 
a very active tues-Wed period is expected with the threat of severe 
storms and heavy rain as a very large upper level trough and strong 
cold front move through the region. The severe weather threat 
looks a little more impressive locally than it did 24 hours ago 
as models seem to have trended a little stronger with the low- 
level jet compared to previously, which in turn will increase the 
low-level shear. Ironically, the two main threats (flooding and 
severe storms) are competing against each other for dominance in 
this scenario. Because widespread showers and thunderstorms are 
expected to develop during the day on Tuesday, instability may be 
a bit more limited than it would otherwise be with this kind of 
system. This may act to keep the severe weather threat from 
becoming a significant and widespread event, but there will still 
likely be a threat Tuesday afternoon of isolated tornadoes and a 
straight line wind/isolated tornado threat overnight Tuesday night 
into Wednesday morning with the main squall line. Mid-level lapse 
rates are also impressive for this time of year initially. If for 
some reason we do not get a lot of widespread convection during 
the day on Tuesday, then instability could climb unseasonably high 
and discrete supercells with a stronger tornado risk would be 
possible. On the other hand, our overall rainfall amounts would be 
lower in that scenario. 


In terms of flooding, this system is very large and has a 
connection with the subtropical jet, which can be seen on a 
hemispheric view of water vapor imagery with a plume stretching 
back into the eastern Pacific. Precipitable water values are 
forecast to rise into the 1.8-1.9" range by Tuesday evening, which 
would be just below the December record for tlh. In addition, 
forecast soundings viewed in BUFKIT are favorable for training 
convection. Several hi-res models respond by cranking out several 
inches of rain across the area in a fairly short amount of time. 
The overall size of the system, its connection to the subtropical 
jet and available moisture, and the favorable forecast soundings 
for training convection argue in favor of continuing the Flash 
Flood Watch. Overall rainfall amounts have not changed a whole lot 
from the previous forecast with storm totals through Wednesday of 
3 to 5 inches across the area. Localized amounts over 6 inches are 
possible. 




Long term [thursday through monday]... 
the first part of the forecast is expected to be dry with seasonal 
temperatures behind the strong cold front on Wednesday. The next 
system could arrive by the weekend with a chance of rain. 




Marine... 
winds will steadily increase over the next couple of days as a 
strong cold front approaches. Advisory conditions are likely 
starting late Tuesday afternoon and lasting through Wednesday night 
with improving conditions on Thursday. Boating conditions are 
expected to become quite hazardous on Wednesday and Wednesday night 
with seas peaking at 8 to 10 feet. 




Fire weather... 
a very wet pattern will be in place through Wednesday night. This 
will prevent red flag conditions for the remainder of the period. 




Hydrology... 
overall, there has not been much change to the forecast. We are 
still expecting a large area of 3-5 inches of rain across the 
forecast area with localized amounts of 6+ inches possible through 
Wednesday. The axis of heaviest rain has been shifted slightly 
farther to the west and now runs from near Panama City up into 
southern Georgia. The most likely areas for flooding will be low 
lying and poor drainage areas.
