NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tallahassee Florida 
251 am EDT Thu Oct 2 2014 


..stormy conditions expected on Friday with much drier and cooler 
weather on tap for the weekend... 


Near term [through today]... 
an upper level shortwave trough over The Four Corners region is 
deepening the upper level trough over the western conus, with weak 
ridging still in place aloft over the Mississippi Valley. At the 
surface, high pressure is still in place over the eastern conus, but 
will continue to slide eastward through the period as a developing 
front over the plains begins to trek eastward. Today will be dry, 
with only a slight (20%) chance for showers in extreme western 
portions of our area. Highs will be quite warm for October- in 
the upper 80s to around 90. 




Short term [tonight through saturday]... 
the 4-corners short wave will pivot across the Southern Plains 
before being absorbed by the trough currently over western Canada. 
This 2nd trough will dig southeastward to a position over the 
Mississippi Valley by 00z Saturday. The trough will continue to 
amplify and come to dominate eastern North America on Saturday with 
its axis extending from Ontario to Florida by 00z Sunday. The associated 
cold front will reach the lower Mississippi Valley tonight and cross 
Alabama on Friday. The front will then sweep across our forecast area 
from northwest to southeast Friday night. Pre-frontal convection 
will approach our western zones by daybreak Friday with likely pops 
for most of the area Friday afternoon. The likely pops will linger 
into the evening for south central Georgia and parts of the Florida Big Bend. 
Shear values have increased in the models since last night's runs, 
but are still marginal for severe. We would expect to see a 
weakening linear mesoscale convective system approaching from the west. In our area, look 
for some of the stronger storms to produce wind gusts up to about 40 
mph. Friday will also be pretty humid for October with dew points in 
the lower 70s. With afternoon highs in the mid to upper 80s, heat 
indices will peak in the mid 90s along and south of I-10 with lower 
90s to the north. 




Long term [saturday night through thursday]... 
the ridge of high pressure behind the cold front will quickly 
build into the region on Saturday night and Sunday, and remain 
centered in our vicinity through Monday. While there will be 
significant cool air advection, the exact position of the ridge 
during the overnight hours will be critical for radiational 
cooling for both Sunday and Monday morning. At this time, the 
model guidance is continuing to trend cooler, with lows on Sunday 
expected to be in the middle to upper 40s over much of the 
interior, with upper 40s to lower 50s fcst for Monday morning. 
High temps will gradually moderate through the period, ranging 
from the middle to upper 70s on Sunday, to the lower to middle 80s 
on Wednesday. Rain chances will be very slim through the entire 
period, with just a slight chance of a shower on Monday night and 
Tuesday as an upper level disturbance moves through from the northwest. 


&& 


Aviation... 
[through 06z friday] with high pressure and high moisture in 
place over the region, another morning with MVFR visbys and 
possibly IFR cigs is in store for dhn, aby, and vld, clearing out 
after sunrise. Afterward, VFR will prevail with light winds, 
generally 5 knots or less, from the east-southeast. 


&& 


Marine... 
light winds and low seas will dominate the marine area through 
tonight. Winds will be on the increase out of the southwest by 
Friday afternoon ahead of our next cold front. A wind shift to the 
northwest then north will occur behind the front Friday night and 
Saturday with winds expected to reach cautionary to marginal 
advisory levels. Offshore winds will drop off on Sunday and veer to 
onshore by Monday. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
relative humidities will dip into the mid to upper 20s this weekend 
west of a line from Apalachicola to Fitzgerald in the wake of a cold 
front. At this time, it looks like Alabama will reach its relative 
humidity duration and 20-ft wind criteria and likely its kbdi 
values as well on Saturday. The Florida Panhandle and western Big 
Bend counties appear to be more borderline, with most of the 
Panhandle reaching duration criteria and much of both areas 
reaching wind criteria, but the erc values are more uncertain as 
they will depend on how much rainfall we will accumulate. In 
Georgia, relative humidities are expected to remain above 25 
percent, preventing red flag criteria from being reached there. 
Relative humidity will be low for long durations Sunday as well, 
but winds will be lower, preventing red flag conditions in 
Alabama. Depending on the erc values, Florida may be borderline 
once again Sunday. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
although some of the stronger storms on Friday could produce locally 
heavy rainfall in excess of 2", most areas should receive average 
totals of 1" or less due to the fast moving nature of the 
approaching cold front. This amount of rainfall will have little 
impact on our area rivers and streams.
