Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Coastal Hazard Statement  Statement as of 10:13 am EDT on May 28, 2015


... High rip current risk in effect until 8 PM EDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Tallahassee has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect until 8 PM EDT this evening.

* Timing... through this evening


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... 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 
928 am EDT Thursday may 28 2015 


Near term [through today]... 


Little change was made to the previous forecast. Most of the 
afternoon convection is expected to be confined to the Florida 
Panhandle...southeast Alabama...and adjacent section of southwest 
Georgia where deeper moisture still exists. Drier air over the 
eastern half of the area is expected to suppress convection there. 
The 12z ktae sounding shows middle level lapse rates around 
6... an isolated stronger storm or two remains possible 
this afternoon across the western areas...similar to the past 
couple of days. Storms motions will be slow again...so locally 
heavy rainfall will occur over the areas where storms develop. 
High temperatures will range from the middle 80s across the western 
half to near 90 across the eastern half. 


&& 


Aviation... 


[through 12z friday] showers and thunderstorms could impact kecp 
and kdhn this afternoon. Otherwise...VFR conditions are expected 
throughout the period. 


&& 


Previous discussion [652 am edt]... 


Short term [tonight through saturday]... 


Convection should be fairly suppressed across the area from 
tonight through Friday night as drier air continues to advect into 
the area from the east. Some low (20-30%) probability of precipitation were included over 
the far western sections of the forecast area on Friday afternoon, 
but otherwise a dry day is expected. Isolated convection is 
expected to return to the entire forecast area Saturday as the dry 
air mass begins to modify. Temperatures should be slightly above 
normal through the period. 




Long term [saturday night through thursday]... 


As a middle-upper level wave digs to the central Gulf Coast this 
weekend and then settles across the region, deep but weak 
southerly flow should develop next week. This pattern shift should 
lead to increasing deep moisture and thus rain chances. We did not 
introduce any likely (60+ percent) probability of precipitation into the forecast yet, but 
the rain chances were bumped up to 50 percent along typically 
favored sea breeze zones during weak southerly flow regimes. 
Temperatures should continue to be near or slightly above normal. 




Marine... 


Through the forecast period, winds should be below 15 knots and 
seas 3 feet or less with both subsiding after the weekend. Showers 
and storms should be more isolated over the next few days, with 
increasing rain chances next week. 




Fire weather... 


Hazardous fire weather conditions are not expected over the next 
several days. 




Hydrology... 


One more day of higher coverage of showers and storms is expected 
today over western parts of the area, with locally heavy rainfall 
possible. Some isolated urban or small stream flooding can't be 
ruled out, but widespread flooding is not expected. On Friday and 
into the weekend, drier air will push into the area leading to 
more isolated showers and storms and lower average rainfall.
