NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tallahassee Florida 
458 am EST sun Dec 21 2014 


Near term [through today]... 


A stalled frontal zone across the northern Gulf of Mexico will serve 
as the focus for the development of additional areas of rain across 
the area. Coverage and intensity of the rain will increase as a 
mid level impulse moves toward the central Gulf states later this 
afternoon. While rainfall amounts will not be particularly heavy, 
coverage should be fairly high, especially across the eastern 
portion of the forecast area. With cloudy skies and cool 
northeasterly flow in place across much of the area on the north 
side of this boundary, have undercut guidance for Max temperatures 
in Alabama and Georgia, where highs may not rise out of the mid 50s. 




Short term [tonight through wednesday]... 


The +pv anomaly currently positioned along the Texas/Mexico border 
will elongate in the fast upper-level southwesterly flow and 
spread through the southeast tonight through tomorrow. This will 
strengthen the high pressure wedge sprawling down the appalachian 
mountain chain, and subsequently reinforce the cool airmass in 
place across the northern half of the tri-state region. At the 
same time, low to mid level southwesterly flow will surge an 
unseasonably warm and moist airmass out of the southern Gulf into 
the northeast Gulf. Although the two features will not directly 
link up, a broad area of low pressure is expected to develop in 
the northeast Gulf overnight. What will start as light to moderate 
rain over The Big Bend and south-central Georgia (generated along 
sloping low-level isentropic surfaces in the 295-305k layer) will 
eventually become heavy rain as the low level convergence 
strengthens a warm front along the northeast Gulf Coast between 
the aforementioned cool land based airmass and the warming Gulf 
airmass. The surface and mid-level features will likely link up 
best across the southeast Big Bend of Florida. In the unseasonably 
tropical airmass (1.5"-2"pwat), 1 to 2 inches of rain may fall in 
this area tonight through Monday. Although there will likely be a 
brief respite late Monday afternoon through Monday evening, light 
to moderate rain will likely increase in coverage overnight as 
low-level isentropic ascent continues over the strengthening and 
nearing warm front. On Tuesday, a low-level jet will gradually 
strengthen under the stratiform rain shield. At the same time, a 
subtle southern stream anomaly will slide through the central Gulf 
and approach the northeast Gulf Coast. In addition a very strong 
northern stream low pressure system will be digging into the 
Southern Plains. Diverging upper flow and the approaching southern 
stream wave will increase deep synoptic lift, while the 
subtropical wave will strengthening deep layer shear. These features 
will all combine some-time on Tuesday afternoon to support 
discrete thunderstorm development along the aforementioned warm 
front. Model consensus would suggest somewhere on the order of 
50-60kts of deep layer shear, coupling with near 30kts of low- 
level shear to warrant a threat for supercell thunderstorms. The 
primary threat with these storms will be tornadoes and possibly 
damaging wind gusts. Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning a 
potent squall line associated with the northern stream trough will 
pass through the same favorable environment for severe 
thunderstorms. The primary threats along the squall will be qlcs 
tornado development as well as damaging straight line winds. The 
severe threat will probably continue into Wednesday morning/early 
afternoon across the southeast Big Bend as the cold front makes 
its way through the region. Between the storms on Tuesday and 
Wednesday, another 2-4 inches of rain will be possible. 




Long term [wednesday night through sunday]... 


In the wake of the aforementioned front, temperatures will fall to 
slightly below seasonal averages Wednesday night and Thursday, 
before warming to near normal to end the week. Next weekend will 
bring another frontal system, though this one appears much weaker 
with much less rain expected. 




&& 


Aviation... 
[through 06z monday] 


With a frontal zone in place just south of the Florida, an 
extensive period of IFR ceilings are expected across the area 
through at least 18z. These ceilings may lift to low MVFR in the 
afternoon in between periods of moderate rain. After 02z, ceilings 
should return to IFR regionwide through the end of the taf cycle. 


&& 


Marine... 


Cautionary level northeasterly winds will weaken through the day 
today and remain rather light through Monday. Then winds will turn 
southerly as a warm front moves into the northern Gulf. Expect 
advisory levels winds by Tuesday ahead of a cold front, persisting 
through Wednesday night in the wake of the front. Gust to gale 
force may be possible Tuesday night through Wednesday. Winds and 
seas will then subside once again to finish the week. 


&& 


Fire weather... 


Low level moisture will be abundant over the next few days with 
drier air moving in on Wednesday. Red flag conditions are not 
expected over the next week. 


&& 


Hydrology... 


While there is still some uncertainty with respect to the exact 
placement of heaviest rainfall with the storm system on Tuesday and 
Wednesday, confidence is increasing in a period of significant 
rainfall occurring across the region. Storm total accumulations of 3 
to 5 inches with isolated heavier amounts are possible with this 
system. 


Rainfall totals of this magnitude will increase the potential for 
localized flooding across the region, particularly during times of 
heaviest rainfall on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. 


With area rivers and associated tributaries at or below normal flows 
for December, the currently predicted rainfall amounts are generally 
expected to produce only rises to action stage on most of the river 
forecast points. The notable exceptions to this may be within the 
Ochlockonee and Withlacoochee River basins where there's increased 
potential to reach minor flood stage later this week.
