Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 High Surf Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement  Statement as of 3:57 am EST on February 9, 2016


... High surf advisory now in effect until 3 am CST Wednesday...
... High rip current risk now in effect until 3 am CST Wednesday...

* surf... peaking around 6 to 7 feet west of the Saint Joseph
Peninsula and south of Tyndall AFB.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area... producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions.

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... beach patrol flags and signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tallahassee Florida 
624 am EST Tuesday Feb 9 2016 


Aviation... 
[through 12z wednesday]... 


VFR conditions will continue throughout the period. A cloud deck 
around 5k feet will move in to northern parts of the region by 
late morning. Northwesterly winds will increase significantly 
during the morning hours. Gusts of 25 knots are likely with gusts 
up to 30 knots possible. 


&& 


Prev discussion [345 am est]... 


Near term [through today]... 
with low pressure off well to the northeast today, northwesterly 
winds will bring cold dry air advection once again. Wrap around 
moisture behind the low will likely move into the northernmost 
counties of Georgia and Alabama this morning. Pops today are near 
zero with partly to mostly sunny skies. The exception is the 
northernmost parts of the Georgia and Alabama counties where clouds 
will likely linger throughout the day. It will be very chilly today 
with highs in the upper 40s for the Alabama counties and most of the 
Georgia counties. Elsewhere highs will be in the lower 50s. Winds 
will be very gusty today. Frequent gusts of 25 mph are expected with 
occasional gusts up to 35 mph possible. A Wind Advisory is in effect 
for coastal areas of Walton, Bay, Gulf and Franklin counties. A Wind 
Advisory means that sustained winds are expected to reach 26 mph and 
gusts up to 40 mph are possible. 




Short term [tonight through thursday]... 
the long wave pattern will be highly amplified with a deep trough 
over the eastern U.S. At the start of the period. This will result 
in a continuation of the cold and dry weather. Overnight lows will 
drop below freezing for several hours tonight and Wednesday night 
for areas roughly 5 or more miles inland from the coast. The 
freeze watch has been upgraded to a warning and a watch will 
likely be posted later today for Wednesday night's freeze. While 
it does not look like hard freeze criteria will be met, there is 
at least some chance that our Wind Chill Advisory criteria (20 
degrees) will be met across portions of the forecast area north of 
I-10. The day shift will assess the need for an advisory. Daytime 
highs on Wednesday will be similar to today with upper 40s north 
to lower to mid 50s along and south of I-10. The upper trough will 
begin to lift away on Thursday as surface high pressure moves 
south of the area. This pattern will allow temps to moderate 
slightly with afternoon highs reaching the upper 50s to lower 60s. 




Long term [thursday night through tuesday]... 
the long wave trough will deepen a bit more on Friday before being 
kicked eastward over the weekend by a system crossing from The 
Rockies to the Great Plains. This next trough will then deepen into 
the southeast on Monday bringing with it our next chance for rain. 
Until then, dry weather will continue. Temperatures on Friday will 
be mild compared to recent days with highs actually rising to a 
couple of degrees above normal. Parts of the Florida Big Bend could hit 
70 degrees. That will be short lived as another front Friday night 
will knock US back into the chill with highs in the 50s and lows 
in the 30s. More freezes will be likely. 




Marine... 
it will remain quite windy over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico for 
the next couple of days. A Gale Warning for frequent gale-force 
gusts will persist into tonight, followed by Small Craft Advisory 
conditions that will persist into Wednesday night. Seas have peaked, 
but will remain quite high through Wednesday. Winds and seas will 
both quickly subside for Thursday as high pressure builds over the 
waters. Exercise caution conditions will then return for Friday and 
Saturday. 




Fire weather... 
a red flag warning is in effect today for Leon and Wakulla counties 
in Florida. Relative humidity values this afternoon will be below 28 percent for 
most of the Florida counties. Relative humidity values will be around 30 percent 
for the Georgia and Alabama counties. Strong gusty winds will 
continue today with sustained winds of 20 mph likely and gusts up to 
35 mph possible. Observed and forecast fuel moisture estimates 
indicate that vegetation is drying out. Dispersion will be over 75 
today. 




Hydrology... 
many local rivers are high or in flood stage at this time. Most area 
rivers are currently steady or falling. No significant rainfall is 
expected through the next five days. 


On the Choctawhatchee River, Caryville has crested and is falling. 
Near Bruce, the river is in moderate flood stage and is holding 
steady. The Apalachicola River at Blountstown has crested and is 
falling slowly, but will remain in flood stage all week. 


The Ochlockonee River at Concord appears to have crested and is 
holding steady. The Withlacoochee River at Valdosta has crested and 
is falling. Further downstream the Withlacoochee is still rising.
