Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Coastal Hazard Statement  Statement as of 9:25 am CST on November 25, 2014/


... High rip current risk in effect until 7 PM EST /6 PM CST/ this
evening...

The National Weather Service in Tallahassee has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect until 7 PM EST /6 PM CST/ this
evening.

* Location... coastal Bay... Gulf and Franklin counties

* timing... through tonight

* beach flags... Bay and Franklin... red... Gulf... double red

* surf... 2 to 4 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.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tallahassee Florida 
240 PM EST Tue Nov 25 2014 


Near term [through tonight]... 
surface data across the northeastern Gulf of Mexico show an area of 
low pressure continuing to develop along a stalled frontal boundary. 
An area of isentropic ascent on the northwest side of this low pressure 
area/frontal zone continues to produce widespread rain extending 
from tlh westward across the Panhandle and into southeast Alabama. Model 
guidance is in good agreement that this area of ascent will reach 
its greatest magnitude around 21z this afternoon and then shift 
north of the area through the evening hours. As this occurs, a mid 
level trough will be moving across the Gulf Coast and as it nears 
the region, will sweep the low pressure area off to the NE resulting 
in clearing conditions around sunrise in the western areas. 




Short term [wednesday through Thursday night]... 
there is a 20-30% chance of rain for our eastern zones Wednesday 
morning from the wrap around moisture associated with the cold 
front, but once the system lifts off to the northeast in the 
afternoon, we will start to notice the colder, drier air moving in 
as surface high pressure starts to build eastward. This airmass 
won't be as cold as last week's cold front, but highs will struggle 
to reach 60 both Wednesday and on Thanksgiving despite clearing 
skies. Lows will return to the mid to upper 30s, with a light 
freeze (brushing around 32f for an hour or so) even possible in 
our northwestern zones Thursday night. 




Long term [friday through tuesday]... 
high pressure will continue to push eastward over the southeastern 
states through the long term period. There are no significant 
chances of rain through the period, although cloud cover and 
moisture will begin to increase again early next week. The airmass 
will be cool and dry through Friday night, with highs in the upper 
50s to around 60 and lows in the mid to upper 30s. Over the 
weekend however, the airmass will begin to modify and we will 
warm up a bit to highs in the mid 60s to low 70s and lows in the 
40s to around 50. 




&& 


Aviation... 
[through 18z wednesday] as the rain and clouds persist through 
the evening, so will the low cigs. Ecp, dhn and aby will have MVFR 
conditions through 12z when clearing should begin. Tlh and vld 
celings are currently IFR improving to MVFR after 00z. Brief 
periods of IFR are possible at all terminals during heavy 
rainfall. 




&& 


Marine... 
winds and waves will continue to ramp up overnight, with seas 
peaking at 7 to 9 feet occasionally as high as 11 feet and gusts to 
gale force possible over the offshore waters. Winds will begin to 
decrease Wednesday morning and by Wednesday afternoon, winds and 
waves will fall below headline criteria and remain so for the 
remainder of the period. 




&& 


Fire weather... 
much drier air will move into the region over the next few days, 
with minimum humidity values in the 30s and 40s. However, with very 
wet fuel conditions, there are no fire weather concerns. 




&& 


Hydrology... 
for the last few days, ending at 18z today, between 2 and 4 inches 
of rain had fallen across the region, with isolated maximum totals 
in of 5 inches across southwestern Georgia and into the Florida 
Panhandle. Over the next 18 to 24 hours, an additional 1 to 2 inches 
is possible, primarily focused across the Florida Panhandle and into 
southwestern Georgia. The areal flood potential through the 
remainder of this event is low. However, steady rises will continue 
through much of this week on area rivers. Given the bulk of the 
rainfall occurring in the Flint/Ochlockonee River basins, expect 
the most notable rises in these basins, particularly below Newton 
and Thomasville, respectively. Thomasville and Concord may reach 
action stage in the days ahead. However, these and all river points 
are expected to remain below flood stage.
