NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tallahassee Florida 
1059 am EDT Fri Oct 31 2014 


Near term [through today]... 


Although it will be significantly cooler and drier across the region 
today with highs limited to the lower to middle 70s under plenty of 
sunshine, (which is 3-5 degrees below climo for this time of year) 
the real blast of cold air is still on the way for the upcoming 
weekend. This unseasonably cold air mass will be preceded by a dry 
cold front which will approach the region from the northwest this evening. 
Outside of some patchy cirrus and slowly increasing north-northwest winds, not 
much in the way of weather will be indicative that such a cold blast 
of air will be on its way.

Prev discussion [443 am edt]... 


Short term [tonight through sunday]... 
as has been well advertised for the past few days, a big cold snap 
is coming this weekend. A rather anomalously large upper low will 
drop into the southern US by Saturday morning pushing a dry cold 
front across the forecast area by daybreak. The surface pressure 
gradient between a developing low pressure area off the Carolina 
coast and an Arctic high pressure area moving down the Mississippi 
River valley will generate strong northerly winds quickly 
ushering in this much colder airmass. The cold advection behind 
this front will be sufficiently strong that high temperatures on 
Saturday will likely struggle to warm out of the 50s, which is 
rather incredible for the first day of November. The current 
forecast highs for Saturday are very near record low maximum 
levels for the date. 


By Saturday night, the core of the high pressure area will be 
building over the Tennessee River valley with the ridge axis 
extending southward to the central Gulf Coast. The models differ 
here in whether the position of the ridge is close enough to 
result in light to calm winds across the region by sunrise. 
The NAM and Euro MOS for 31/00z are surprisingly similar in 
temperatures in the lower 30s across the region with winds very 
near or precisely calm by 12z Sunday. Only the GFS shows winds in 
the 4 to 6 kt range throughout the night and accordingly has 
warmer min temperatures. 


The MOS (excluding the mav) would seem to indicate a borderline 
freeze across some of our interior counties - mainly from tlh-aby 
and westward. However, the surface pressure fields in the model 
would suggest that it would be unlikely that surface winds become 
calm by sunrise. 


While the incoming airmass will be very cold, i'm just not 
confident we'll effectively radiate in this pattern or that we 
can advect temperatures much cooler than the mid 30s into the 
region by daybreak on Sunday. As a result, will utilize a forecast 
blend heavily weighted toward the previous forecast - which was 
warmer than the 00z guidance set - and the 00z GFS. This results 
in lows generally in the mid 30s in western areas and in the upper 
30s in the east. Should future forecasts suggest the ridge center 
will be located further south, downward adjustments to the min 
temp forecast may be needed. In areas with the mid 30s, frost is 
unlikely since the airmass will be especially dry. 


The moderating trend for afternoon temperatures begins on Sunday 
as high pressure builds just north of the region. Highs are 
expected to be in the low to mid 60s, which is still around 10 
degrees below normal for early November. 




Long term [sunday night through friday]... 
the extended forecast will be marked by gradually moderating 
temperatures and mostly dry weather as a mid-upper level ridge 
builds across the eastern US and we transition into more of a 
+nao/+ao regime. Highs should be closer to 80 degrees by the 
middle of next week. The next chance of rain is expected to hold 
off until Wednesday at the earliest. 




Aviation... 
[through 12z saturday] nearly unlimited VFR conditions are 
expected to prevail through the period at all of the taf sites, 
but the initially light winds will be on the increase out of the 
northwest both this aftn and tonight at most of the terminals. 




Marine... 
winds will be on the increase this afternoon in the wake of a cold 
frontal passage from Thursday evening. Winds will sharply increase 
around midnight as a reinforcing cold front surges across the 
marine area. Frequent gusts to gale force are expected behind this 
front with sustained winds possibly nearing gale force as well. 
Saturday afternoon, high pressure will build near enough to the 
marine area to eliminate the threat for gale force gusts, though 
advisory conditions will continue into Sunday. High pressure will 
then build to the northeast of the marine area starting a period 
of moderate easterly flow. 




Fire weather... 
a much colder and drier air mass will rush into the region this 
weekend behind a very strong but dry cold front. This unseasonably 
cold airmass will generate quite strong and gusty transport winds 
and very high dispersions. Red flag conditions may still be possible 
over parts of the region on Sunday, but the chilly afternoon temps 
appear likely to keep relative humidities just above red flag levels 
at this time. 




Hydrology... 
dry conditions are expected over the next several days, with no 
impacts expected along area rivers and streams.
