NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tallahassee Florida 
808 PM EDT Fri Oct 31 2014 


Near term [through tonight]... 
a mid level cut off low lays over Indiana. This low has an 
associated strong +pv anomaly that is aiding in some mid-level cloud 
cover and even a few stray showers in our Alabama and Georgia 
counties. At the lower levels, this anomaly is also enhancing a 
lower level jet and pushing in a dry cold front at the surface. This 
dry cold front lies to our northwest stretching across northern 
Alabama, Mississippi, and into the arklatex. As we head into the 
evening, these showers in Alabama and Georgia will continue to 
dissipate, while winds will begin to increase and temperatures will 
begin to drop noticeably. Lows tonight will range from the mid to 
upper 30s to the low 40s, with the coolest temperatures in southeast 
Alabama and the warmest temperatures along the immediate coast and 
in the Florida Big Bend. 




&& 


Aviation... 
[through 00z sunday] VFR conditions will prevail this taf period. 
Winds will begin to increase out of the northwest overnight and continue 
through the end of the taf period. Gusts of 25kt are possible 
especially at aby and dhn. 




&& 


Prev discussion [455 PM edt]... 


Short term [saturday through Sunday night]... 
a high-amplitude, but progressive long wave pattern will continue 
across the country through this period. The upper trough axis will 
be over the area Saturday morning and then shift east with the 
upstream ridge axis over the Mississippi Valley by Sunday night. A 
reinforcing shot of colder air will arrive with the passage of 
another cold front overnight. This air mass will make it feel like 
mid winter with daytime highs on Saturday only reaching the upper 
50s and lower 60s. That's 15 to 20 degrees below normal. It will 
also be quite breezy adding an apparent chill to the area. 


This will set the stage for the coldest night of the season thus far 
on Saturday night. Much of the guidance is calling for a light 
freeze across our mainly our northern zones. However, the high 
position over Kentucky is not ideal for realizing these temps so 
early in the season. Typically, we want the high centered much 
closer to the Gulf Coast. We have also noted that the MOS tends to 
have a cold bias with the first couple of Arctic outbreaks in the 
fall. For this reason, we are keeping temps just above freezing. 
Winds should stay up across most of the forecast area. However, 
eastern areas may decouple for a few hours and this would allow for 
some possible frost formation. We have included areas of frost over 
our south central Georgia and inland eastern Florida Big Bend zones. 


As heights rise, temps will moderate a a few degrees on Sunday. More 
of the area will see winds decouple on Sunday night with fairly 
uniform mid 30s for lows. We will include a mention of frost for 
several inland areas. 




Long term [monday through friday]... 
the upper ridge will be over the area early next week with a warming 
trend being the result. By Wednesday afternoon, temps will be back 
to seasonal levels in the upper 70s to near 80. There is still a lot 
of uncertainty in the evolution of the pattern and its impacts on 
our weather for the latter part of next week. It appears that an 
upper low will cut off from the main flow either over northern 
Mexico or the southwest U.S. By Wednesday. This low will then move 
eastward. The GFS is much faster than the European model (ecmwf) in bringing this low 
to the Gulf Coast, even going so far as to develop a surface low 
over the northwest Gulf of Mexico by Thursday and moving that low 
eastward across the central Gulf. At this time, we favor the slower 
solution and will keep pops minimal for the end of the week. 




Marine... 
a cold front will sweep across the northeast Gulf overnight with 
strong gusty winds arriving in its wake. While sustained gales are 
not likely, frequent gust to 35-40 knots justify the Gale Warning 
that is in effect. Winds will peak around sunrise Saturday with 
offshore seas occasionally reaching as high as 15-17 ft. High 
pressure will start to build southeastward toward the waters later 
in the weekend with conditions dropping below headline criteria by 
mid morning Sunday. As high pressure moves east off the southeast 
U.S. Coast, winds over the Gulf of Mexico will veer to the east by 
Sunday night. This pattern will persist into Wednesday with winds 
surging to cautionary levels each night through the period. 




Fire weather... 
the Fire Weather Watch for Saturday has been updated based on the 
latest forecast erc values. The watch has been expanded to include 
Walton, Holmes, Gadsden, Liberty, Franklin, Jefferson, Madison, 
and Taylor counties, as well as the original four counties, Washington, 
Bay, Leon, and Wakulla. Relative humidity values will dip to 
around 26-27% in these counties and coincide with 20 ft winds 
around 18 miles per hour with erc values ranging from 27 to 40. These 
conditions will occur due to a dry cold front moving into the area 
overnight tonight. 




Hydrology... 
dry conditions are expected over the next several days, with no 
impacts expected along area rivers and streams.
