of July. There were 16 days with thunder at the Airport which was 3

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tallahassee Florida 
411 PM EDT Fri Aug 1 2014 


Near term [through today]... 


As expected, a few slow-moving showers and thunderstorms have 
developed this afternoon across parts of southwest Georgia, while 
the rest of the area has remained dry. Isolated-scattered showers 
and storms may linger into the early evening in SW Georgia before 
diminishing. Otherwise, a relatively thick layer of mid-high level 
cloud cover has pushed in to the western part of the area a little 
earlier than expected. If this persists overnight, it could keep 
low temperatures a little warmer than model guidance suggests. At 
the same time the lowest dewpoints will be in our Florida and 
Alabama zones, and if clearing occurs, the dry air mass could 
support cooler low temperatures. Last night that was the case, and 
lows in those areas dipped into the mid 60s. Basically if the 
cloud cover dissipates we would anticipate lows in the upper 60s, 
but if it persists, lows could be in the low-mid 70s instead. 




Short term [saturday through monday]... 


The GFS and European model (ecmwf) forecast a 500 mb long wave trough from the Ohio 
Valley to the northwest Gulf Coast. At the surface, both models 
forecast a quasi-stationary, east-west trough (remnants of the cold 
front that passed through our forecast area Monday night) across our 
region. With increasing deep layer moisture and at least some 
synoptic scale lift, there will be a good chance of rain across the 
area. The highest pops (40-60%) will be in southeast Alabama & south 
GA, where the most favorable combination of deep layer moisture 
and synoptic forcing will be. For Saturday, the pop in Florida will 
still be below climo values (around 30%) due to some lingering dry 
air. However, pops in Florida will increase to 50-60% Sunday & Monday as 
the deep layer moisture increases and becomes more evenly 
distributed across the forecast area. Highs will be in the lower to 
mid 90s in FL, and around 90 in Georgia & Alabama. Lows will be in the 70s. 




Long term [monday night through friday]... 


The positive tilted 500 mb trough to our northwest, and the 
quasi-stationary surface trough across our forecast area will 
weaken on Tuesday. A deep layer ridge, the western extent of the 
semi-permanent Bermuda ridge, will build across the Florida Peninsula 
and eastern Gulf of Mexico for the remainder of the work week. 
Daily pops will be near average on Tuesday (40-50%), then 
a little below-average for the remainder of the week (30%) as 
deep layer moisture decreases. High temperatures will be in the 
lower 90s Tuesday, then mid 90s Wednesday through Friday. Lows 
will be in the 70s. 


&& 


Aviation... 


[through 18z saturday] VFR conditions should generally prevail 
through the taf period at all terminals. There may be a few rain showers 
near the aby and vld terminals prior to 02z, but a dry forecast is 
expected thereafter. There is a small chance of some MVFR-IFR ceilings 
pushing into aby and vld later tonight from the northeast again 
(similar to last night), but confidence is not high enough to 
include in the forecast at this time. 


&& 


Marine... 


Through Monday there will be a broad, weak area of low pressure 
across the coastal waters, causing winds to be light and variable 
and seas to be 1 ft or less. As the Bermuda ridge begins to build 
across the Florida Peninsula and eastern Gulf of Mexico by mid week, 
winds will become more well-defined out of the west-southwest 
around 10 knots. 


&& 


Fire weather... 


Summer-like conditions and increasing rain chances will result in no 
significant fire weather concerns over the next few days. 


&& 


Hydrology... 


Area rivers are currently all below bank full stage, with a few in 
low flow stage. Seven-day rainfall totals for the area will be about 
normal for this time of year at around 1-1.5". These amounts should 
not cause significant rises to our rivers. No flooding is expected 
for the next week.
