Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Coastal Hazard Statement  Statement as of 11:36 am EDT on April 19, 2015


... High rip current risk remains in effect through late tonight...

* location: Walton... Bay... Gulf and Franklin County beaches.

* Surf: building to around 3 feet today.

* Impacts: stronger and more frequent rip currents are likely
today... which could be hazardous to those entering the water.

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 
401 PM EDT sun Apr 19 2015 


Near term [through tonight]... 


As of 2 PM EDT, a line of strong to severe thunderstorms is moving 
through the eastern Big Bend and south central Georgia as a 
negatively tilted trough pushes through in the upper levels. A 
Tornado Watch remains in effect until the storms pass. The main 
threat with this line of storms is damaging winds and isolated 
tornadoes. So far most locations have received 1 to 3 inches of 
rain. Some western portions of the area have received 4 to 6 inches 
of rain according to radar estimates. Rain will linger this 
afternoon. This evening rain will clear out from west to east. 
Patchy fog is likely in the early morning hours. Overnight lows 
will be in the upper 60s. 




Short term [monday through Tuesday night]... 


An ul +pv anomaly will sweep eward from the arklatex across northern MS 
and Alabama Monday. This upper level disturbance will push a weak cold 
front through our area. Most of the models are not generating a lot 
of precipitation with this system, with most of the convection 
offshore, due to the drier air with tomorrow's system than we saw 
with today's system. Environmental wind speeds will be quite high 
tomorrow, with 0-1 km shear around 20 kts and 0-6 km shear around 50 
kts. With drier air tomorrow than today, we will have a good chance 
for daytime heating to warm temperatures up to the middle 80s and 
create some instability. Model cape values are peaking around 1000- 
1500 j/kg in afternoon. This means that although chances for 
thunderstorms tomorrow are fairly low, around 20-40%, scattered 
convection that does form may be severe with the potential for 
damaging wind gusts, large hail, and an isolated tornado or two. The 
system should exit the area Monday evening, bringing in a cooler, 
drier airmass overnight. Tuesday will be dry with highs in the upper 
70s to around 80. Lows will be mostly in the upper 50s Monday night 
and Tuesday night. 




Long term [wednesday through sunday]... 


The unsettled el-ninoish pattern will continue through next week 
with an active southern stream jet. Chances of rain will be around 20-40% 
through the period with highs generally in the low 80s and overnight 
lows staying fairly warm, only dipping into the 60s. 


&& 


Aviation... 


[through 18z monday] a line of strong to severe storms is just east 
of tlh heading towards vld. Vld will likely see strong winds as this 
line passes. Elsewhere the threat for severe weather has passed, but 
rain and low ceilings continue to linger. Expect mostly MVFR conditions 
this afternoon and evening with IFR conditions likely in the early 
morning hours. 


&& 


Marine... 


Cautionary level winds today will lower, though winds may increase 
again tomorrow afternoon to cautionary levels. After that, winds and 
seas will lower to normal levels. Chances for showers and 
thunderstorms will continue through the period. 


&& 


Fire weather... 


After a wetting rain today, relative humidity values will remain 
above critical thresholds through Wednesday. No red flag concerns. 


&& 


Hydrology... 


Most of the area received around 1-2" of rain today with some areas 
in southeast Alabama and the Florida Panhandle receiving 3-5" of rain. 
This rainfall combined with rainfall from earlier this week has 
resulted in rises along many of our area rivers, with many 
reaching action or bank full stage. The Choctawhatchee River at 
Carryville is in minor flood stage and is forecast to rise to 
minor flood stage at Bruce tomorrow. The Apalachicola River at 
Blountstown is also forecast to rise to minor flood stage tomorrow 
and the kinchafoonnee creek at Dawson is forecast to rise to minor 
flood stage Tuesday.
