NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tallahassee Florida 
1141 am EDT Thursday Jul 30 2015 


Near term [through today]... 


A mixture of low and mid level cloud layers this morning across 
the area have affected surface temperature trends through 15z. 
Most notably, it has kept many of our southwest Georgia counties 
in the lower 80s. However, we expect that with further daytime 
mixing that the low-level clouds will eventually scatter out 
sufficiently to yield mid-90s highs over the interior northwest 
half of our forecast area, with highs around 90 into the low 90s 
over the remainder of the area. Dewpoints are quite high again, 
and the 12z Tallahassee sounding reveals much higher mixing ratios 
in the 1000-3000 ft above ground level layer this morning compared to 24 hours 
ago. This should allow surface dewpoints to generally persist in 
the mid 70s through the day across much of the area, and the upper 
70s to around 80 near the coast. This will generate a fairly broad 
area of maximum heat indices around 107-110 degrees - which is 
near the criteria for a heat advisory. Given the abundance of 
cloud cover, some convection already initiating, and coordination 
with wfos mob and bmx, we will hold off on an advisory although a 
few scattered locations in the western half of the area could 
briefly hit advisory criteria. Overall heat indices of 105-110 
are expected in much of the area. 


Pivoting to convective expectations, some isolated convection was 
already initiating over land areas in the 14-15z timeframe. We 
expect convective activity to gradually become more widespread by 
19z (3 PM edt) over our Florida zones. Through propagation of 
outflow boundaries, other locations reaching their convective 
temperature, and a surface trough over the forecast area, these 
showers and storms are likely to expand to the rest of the area in 
the afternoon hours. Therefore, we expanded "likely" pops (60-70%) 
into the entire forecast area during the afternoon hours. The 12z 
Tallahassee sounding measured a precipitable water value of 2.12" 
and model forecasts suggest 2.1" to 2.2" pwats across the area 
today with high freezing levels. This suggests very efficient 
rainfall producers and locally heavy rain. As was the case 
yesterday, frequent lightning will be likely in many storms, and a 
few storms could also produce strong-severe winds. 


&& 


Prev discussion [350 am edt]... 


Short term [tonight through saturday]... 
east-west oriented mid-level ridge axis will remain just north of 
the forecast area on Friday, with the surface trough stretching 
across the Florida Panhandle into southern Georgia. Deep layer 
moisture will remain plentiful across the region, with scattered 
to numerous showers and thunderstorms expected to develop during 
the afternoon and evening hours. Best rain chances will be along 
and south of the surface trough (far southern Georgia into the 
Florida big bend). A few severe storms cannot be ruled out, with 
mid-level northwesterly flow still around 20 knots. 


By Saturday, the mid-level ridge axis will shift slightly south. 
However, the surface trough will remain generally stationary. 
The southward shift of the ridge axis should help to reduce 
coverage for the northwestern third of the area. However, the 
remainder of the region will see another active afternoon of 
convection. 




Long term [saturday night through thursday]... 
late in the weekend into early next week, the upper ridge will 
weaken as a trough deepens over the eastern half of the country. 
At the surface, the weak trough of low pressure is expected to 
remain relatively stationary along the northern Gulf Coast. Best 
rain chances into next week will be along and south of the 
surface trough, with slightly drier air filtering in north of the 
boundary. 




Aviation... 
[through 06z friday] scattered to numerous thunderstorms and rain are expected this 
afternoon across the area, some of which will likely contain gusty 
winds. The highest coverage is expected to be near ktlh and kecp 
with slightly lower coverage around kdhn and kaby this afternoon. 
Outside of convection, VFR conditions are expected. 




Marine... 
a lingering trough of low pressure along the northeastern Gulf 
Coast will keep light southwesterly to westerly winds in place 
over the coastal waters through the weekend. Scattered to numerous 
showers and thunderstorms each day will generate locally higher 
winds and seas. 




Fire weather... 
red flag conditions will not occur for the next several days. 




Hydrology... 
rain chances will remain elevated through the rest of the week 
with 5 day estimated rain totals around 3-4" along the coast, 
especially in the southeastern Big Bend. Elsewhere, 1.5-2.5" is 
likely. Area rivers are still below action stage. With the 
heaviest rainfall expected near the coast, river flooding is not 
expected. However, localized flooding will be possible with the 
heavier storms.
