Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Coastal Hazard Statement  Statement as of 4:00 am CDT on November 1, 2014/


... A high rip current risk in effect through late tonight...

The National Weather Service in Tallahassee has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect through late tonight.

* Location... Bay and Gulf counties.

* Timing... today into tonight.

* Beach flags... likely red or possibly double red (will be known
after coordination with the beach patrol).

* Surf... 3 to 5 feet with higher sets.

* Impacts... the surf will be extremely dangerous for anyone
entering the water.

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 
357 am EDT Sat Nov 1 2014 


Near term [through today]... 
the much anticipated secondary cold front is marching rapidly 
through the tri-state area early this morning with much colder and 
drier air being advected in on very gusty northwest winds. Temps are 
quickly falling through the 50s as of 200 am EDT, and will continue 
to fall before bottoming out in the middle 30s to the northwest to the 
lower 40s to the se, which is quite a feat for a strictly cold air advection event 
this time of year. For the daylight hours, despite plenty of 
insolation, high temps will struggle to recover into the middle to 
upper 50s (values that are much closer to climatological lows for 
this time of year than highs!). furthermore, although wind chill 
values are typically not considered for temps in the 50s, the strong 
and gusty northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph+ will certainly add quite a chill 
to the air, especially for those who venture outside in casual 
attire. Lastly, due to the very gusty winds, we have decided to 
issue a Wind Advisory for much of today. 


Short term [tonight through monday]... 
at the start of the period, the highly amplified trough/upper low 
will be shifting off the Carolina coast and into the western 
Atlantic. The attendant surface low will continue developing as it 
races up the eastern Seaboard. On the backside of this system, a 
large high pressure area will be building into the mid south and 
Tennessee River valley. The models have been very consistent on 
this ridge building quicker eastward than to the south. As a 
result, most of the models show 4 to 8 kt winds across the 
forecast area overnight into Sunday morning, thus limiting how 
much radiational cooling will occur. Though there will still be 
some low level cold advection occurring, the overall magnitude of 
this advection diminishes greatly after 06z Sunday. Thus, the 
generally feeling continues to be that much of the guidance is a 
few degrees too cold for low temperatures Saturday night with the 
surface ridge out of position over Tennessee and cold advection 
decreasing with time. The 01/00z Euro bolsters confidence in this 
approach with it now being the warmest member in the guidance 
after being the coldest just 24 hours ago. Thus, for this package, 
have trended the forecast a degree or two warmer than the Euro MOS 
and generally 2 to 4 degrees above the met/mav blend. This results 
in temperatures in the mid 30s in the western areas (where winds 
have a small chance of becoming calm at sunrise) to the upper 30s 
to around 40 over near the Suwannee River. 


On Sunday, as the deep layer ridging builds into the Mississippi 
River valley with the surface anticylcone moving into ern 
Georgia/upstate SC. Expect a sunny day, but still cool with 
temperatures in the mid 60s. 


Sunday night is another challenging mint forecast. On the one 
hand, the surface high pressure area is situated as close to the 
region as it is going to get in the South Carolina mid state. 
Return flow doesn't appear to start until after 12z Monday, so 
with a lengthy window of near calm or calm conditions across the 
area overnight, expect favorable radiational cooling conditions 
with a predominantly dry atmosphere in place. The current thinking 
is that Sunday night will be the cooler of the two nights in the 
short term period. This is a conclusion strongly supported by the 
01/00z Euro. Thus, will indicate temps at or just below the model 
consensus which works out to lows in the 33 to 35 degree range 
inland and 36 to 39 in the coastal interface. Areas of frost are 
possible and will be included in this forecast package. A brief 
freeze can't be ruled out for inland areas as is indicated in a 
couple of MOS points in the Euro, and a freeze watch may be 
needed in future forecasts for a portion of the area. 


Monday will be the start of a warming trend that will continue 
into the long term period. With ridging building aloft and the 
surface ridge moving into the western Atlantic, low level 
southeasterly flow will return moisture and temperatures will 
climb into the lower 70s under mostly sunny skies. 


Long term [monday night through saturday]... 
the upper ridge will be over the area early next week with a warming 
trend being the result. By Wednesday afternoon, temps will be back 
to seasonal levels in the upper 70s to near 80. There is still a lot 
of uncertainty in the evolution of the pattern and its impacts on 
our weather for the latter part of next week. It appears that an 
upper low will cut off from the main flow either over northern 
Mexico or the southwest U.S. By Wednesday. This low will then move 
eastward. The GFS is much faster than the European model (ecmwf) in bringing this low 
to the Gulf Coast, even going so far as to develop a surface low 
over the northwest Gulf of Mexico by Thursday and moving that low 
eastward across the central Gulf. At this time, we favor the slower 
solution and will keep pops minimal for the end of the week. 


&& 


Aviation... 
[through 12z sunday] nearly unlimited VFR conditions are expected 
to prevail through the period at all of the taf sites, but northwest 
winds will gust between 18 and 30 kts today at most of the 
terminals, and will only slacken to slightly under 10 kts 
overnight tonight. 


&& 


Marine... 
observations from coastal stations near the coast and over the 
marine area indicate gale force gusts are occurring with sustained 
winds a couple knots below gale. These gale conditions will likely 
continue through mid to late afternoon. Thereafter, a period of 
advisory conditions will last into Sunday afternoon. High pressure 
will build over the western Atlantic on Monday shifting the winds 
to easterly. Borderline cautionary conditions can be expected in 
this pattern, particularly during the overnight hours. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
despite the much colder and drier air mass rushing into the region 
this weekend, it still appears that we will just be able to avoid 
official red flag conditions. For today, even with the strong winds 
and fcst ercs which would normally give almost all of the Florida Big 
Bend and Panhandle a red flag warning, the afternoon temps are 
likely to be too cold to allow relative humidities to drop to 
critical levels. On Sunday, while afternoon relative humidities are 
expected to be low enough for red flag conditions across much of 
North Florida, the lack of strong winds require longer durations of 
low relative humidity and higher erc values which we are not expected to reach at 
this time. 


&& 


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