NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tallahassee Florida 
946 am EST Mon Mar 2 2015 


Near term [through today]... 


Previous forecast is on track with only minor adjustments made. The 
forecast challenge continues to be temperatures. The Wedge has 
finally weakened and low level winds will veer to become onshore 
by this afternoon. However, low level clouds may linger most of 
the day along with patchy light rain or drizzle across northwest 
portions of our County Warning Area. This time of year it would not take many 
breaks in the cloud cover to see a dramatic warm-up over what we 
saw on Sunday where there was almost a 30 degree temperature 
differential from northeast to southeast. I did trend a few 
degrees below most MOS guidance and show temps ranging from upper 
60s northern Georgia zones to upper 70 eastern Big Bend. Most inland 
areas should at least reach the lower 70s. 


&& 


Hydrology... 


The Ochlockonee River at Havana is forecast to reach minor flood 
stage overnight and will crest on Wednesday. The Apalachicola at 
Blountstown, Withlacoochee at Valdosta and Ochlockonee at Concord 
have all crested and will fall below flood stage by tomorrow 
afternoon. 


&& 


Prev discussion [346 am est]... 


Short term [tonight through wednesday]... 


The Tuesday to Wednesday period will feature our area being 
situated under the northern periphery of a mid-upper level ridge, 
while a surface ridge along the East Coast quickly erodes. The end 
result will be most of the rain chances staying north and west of 
our area, and increasing southerly flow. Temperatures will be 
trending warmer, with mid-upper 70s expected. A few sites could 
hit the 80 degree mark, although there still are some questions 
related to cloud cover. We currently expect any morning fog and 
stratus to largely dissipate by the afternoon hours each day, but 
if that doesn't occur, temperatures could be a bit cooler than 
what we are forecasting. Over the cooler Gulf waters, though, the 
fog and stratus could become gradually entrenched during this 
timeframe, particularly later on Tuesday and into Wednesday as 
winds become more southerly vs. Southeasterly, and boundary layer 
mixing ratios continue to climb. We included some fog wording in 
areas with cooler sea-surface temperatures through much of the 
period. Over land areas, fog tonight should be related more to 
radiational cooling with light east flow still expected over the 
northern Gulf. However, sea fog is a realistic possibility on 
Tuesday night. We have included fog in the forecast both nights. 




Long term [wednesday night through monday]... 


A cold front should arrive on Thursday, with rain chances highest 
on Wednesday night and Thursday ahead of the front. However, 
models show weak qg forcing over our area, with stronger qg 
forcing remaining further north. Therefore, pops are only in the 
chance range at the moment, and quantitative precipitation forecast is rather light. Although it 
will be cooler behind the front, a relatively stable configuration 
of mid-upper level ridge over South Florida and upper level jet 
axis over the mid south and mid Atlantic should prevent the core 
of the cold air mass from making it this far south. The stalling 
surface front just to our south, while we remain in the right 
entrance region of an upper level jet, should maintain rain chances 
through the remainder of the extended forecast. In other words, 
after the front arrives, the trend will be cloudy and cool with a 
chance of rain into the weekend. 




Aviation... 


[through 12z tuesday]...IFR ceilings will fall into the LIFR 
category at all terminals by daybreak. There is much lower 
confidence as to just how dense fog will get, however expect at 
least MVFR visibilities at all terminals with the potential to 
fall to LIFR. Ceilings will likely not scatter out today, and only 
lift into the MVFR window once again. 




Marine... 


Relatively light winds and calm seas are expected for the next day 
or so, before winds and seas gradually ramp up in advance of the 
next cold front. However, scec or advisory conditions are not 
expected until after the front on Thursday. Humid air returning 
north over the cooler waters of the far northeast Gulf could lead 
to some sea fog, particularly later on Tuesday and into Wednesday. 
Mariners should be alert for that possibility. 




Fire weather... 


Hazardous fire weather conditions are not expected over the next 
several days. However, due to a combination of low transport 
winds and mixing heights, dispersion indices will remain quite low 
today.
