NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tallahassee Florida 
406 am EDT sun Aug 30 2015 


Near term [through today]... 


As seen vividly on WV imagery this morning, a +pv anomaly/upper 
low spins over the far western Panhandle of Florida. This 
feature and its associated surface trough will be the primary 
forcing mechanisms for convection across the region today. As of 
07z, some showers can be found across southwest GA, along the 
surface trough. As the upper low moves northeast through the 
region today, the surface trough will shift east as well. This 
will result in the bulk of our convective initiation this 
afternoon occurring east of a line from Albany through 
Tallahassee. Some heavy rain will be possible across the southeast 
Big Bend and south-central Georgia where steering flow will run 
parallel to the surface trough. Expect average rainfall amounts in 
this area to be around an inch, with isolated totals between 2-4 
inches. Late in the afternoon and early evening, some of the 
storms may begin to drift back west as the influence of the upper 
low diminishes and broad troughing across the Florida Peninsula 
moves north, turning steering flow more easterly. Highs today will 
be in the upper 80s to low 90s area-wide. 




Short term [tonight through tuesday]... 


The main forecast challenge in the Monday-Tuesday timeframe is how 
the remnants of Erika evolve across the region. The aforementioned 
+pv anomaly should have quickly exited northeast of the area by 
tonight, with the western edge of a broad subtropical ridge 
settling over the region into the early part of the upcoming week. 
Therefore, the bubble of higher precipitable water values (2.2 to 
2.5 inches), sampled by the evening Miami and Key West soundings 
as well as GOES satellite, and any lingering vorticity maxima 
should drift north toward our forecast area over the next couple 
days. Complicating matters will be the eastward advection of drier 
mid-level air over the north-central Gulf of Mexico as the +pv 
anomaly lifts out and mid-upper level westerlies become better 
established. Most available model guidance creates a very sharp 
precipitable water gradient across our forecast area in this time frame. East of 
wherever the gradient sets up, locally heavy rain is possible. 


This entire scenario could leave the western sections of our area 
relatively dry and sunny, with eastern sections mostly cloudy with 
fairly widespread showers. For now we have stayed fairly close to 
a consensus approach on the location of this sharp moisture 
gradient with the highest pops roughly east of a Tallahassee, to 
Moultrie, to Fitzgerald line. It should be noted, though, that 
small details could shift things enough to bring rainy conditions 
into most of the forecast area, or to largely push it off to the 
east. Confidence is also diminished given poor 00z model 
performance in the vicinity of the Keys and South Florida, where 
6-hour model forecast mslp errors are around +2mb over a fairly 
large area. Therefore, it's questionable whether models are 
showing a strong enough wave drifting north into the eastern Gulf 
of Mexico, which affects the rest of the forecast. 




Long term [tuesday night through sunday]... 


Models generally show more abundant low-mid level moisture 
expanding westward to encompass the remainder of the forecast area 
later in the week. Rain chances were kept around 40-50% during the 
daytime hours for much of the extended forecast as a result. With 
the possibility of precipitable water values exceeding 2 inches, 
this could have probably been higher, but given lower than normal 
confidence in model solutions we have stayed closer to the multi- 
model consensus for now. Temperatures should be near normal. 


&& 


Aviation... 


[through 06z monday] a scattering of MVFR and IFR ceilings are 
present across the region this morning. Expect dhn, aby, and vld 
to be most affected, though confidence is extremely low as to what 
degree (mvfr or ifr). Skies should clear quite nicely at dhn and 
possibly ecp this afternoon, with a scattered to broken VFR deck 
further east. Showers and thunderstorms are most likely to impact 
vld later this afternoon, and possibly aby in the evening. 


&& 


Marine... 


An area of lower pressure should persist over the southern half of 
the Gulf during the next couple days, which should lead to winds 
generally from an easterly direction. Right now, winds are 
expected to remain below scec levels, but there is a chance for 
some periods of stronger winds that can't be discounted. This will 
be especially true if a low pressure wave moving into the eastern 
Gulf ends up being more vigorous than models are expecting. 


&& 


Fire weather... 


Hazardous fire weather conditions are not expected over the next 
several days. 


&& 


Hydrology... 


Through Tuesday, the best rain chances will exist over the eastern 
part of the area, generally to the east of a Tallahassee to Albany 
line. Some locally heavy rain will be possible in these areas, 
with average rain totals on the order of 1-2 inches expected 
(possibly closer to 2-3 inches around Dixie, Taylor, and Lafayette 
counties in the eastern Florida big bend). Lower amounts are 
expected to the west. Later in the week, rain chances will 
increase over the western parts of the area with locally heavy 
rainfall becoming possible over much of the area. Although 
localized flooding will be possible as a result, flooding on main 
rivers seems unlikely right now.
