NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tallahassee Florida 
955 am EST Mon Dec 22 2014 


..severe weather and flooding possible across the region on Tuesday 
and Wednesday... 


Near term [through today]... 
regional 12z surface analysis shows the warm front has progressed 
northward into the southeastern third of our forecast area. The lift 
from the progression of the front, along with deep southwesterly 
flow bringing in moisture from the Gulf, is allowing for continued 
showers across the forecast area, with increasing coverage over our 
coastal waters and in the Cross City area. Water vapor imagery 
continues to show a small dry slot moving in from our west, with 
convection popping up behind its western edge. This dry air will 
mean a brief decrease in intensity of rainfall as it moves in, but 
we will still be on track for another cloudy, cool, rainy day. Cloud 
cover and rainfall will keep daytime temperatures low, peaking in 
the 50s to low 60s closer to the coast. 


&& 


Aviation... 
[through 12z tuesday] IFR ceilings will prevail for most of the 
taf for all terminals. There may, however, be a brief period of 
time in the afternoon where ceilings lift to MVFR levels, though 
no scattering is expected. 




&& 


Prev discussion [602 am est]... 


Short term [tonight through wednesday]... 


A developing low pressure system off to our west will begin to 
amplify across the lower MS valley region during the next couple of 
days and eventually form a potent and moisture laden system over 
the southeast on Tuesday. This very energetic low is then expected to move 
rapidly north-northeast from the central Gulf Coast states into the 
eastern Great Lakes by Wednesday night and Thursday, pushing a 
strong cold front through our region later on Wednesday. Along with 
the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms with the 
pre-frontal squall line, a band of very heavy rainfall with 
potential flooding is quite possible as well, and this has prompted 
a Flash Flood Watch across our region from Tuesday morning through 
Wednesday evening. Storm total rainfall amounts of 4 to 6 inches 
(with locally higher amounts) are definitely possible during this 
time frame, which unfortunately, is centered around Christmas eve. 




Long term [wednesday night through monday]... 


After the passage of the strong cold front on Wednesday night, 
conditions will rapidly return to normal on Thursday (christmas day) 
with fair and seasonably cool weather to return for much of the 
extended period. 




Marine... 


A developing low pressure system to our west will will continue to 
tighten the pressure pattern over the the marine area during the 
next few days. This will result in steadily increasing onshore winds 
and seas, with Small Craft Advisory conditions developing on Tuesday 
and Wednesday. Boating conditions are expected to become quite 
hazardous on Wednesday and Wednesday night with seas peaking at 8 to 
10 feet. Conditions across the coastal waters will rapidly improve 
on Thursday and Friday as the strong cold front moves much further 
away from the marine area. 




Fire weather... 


A stretch of wet weather will preclude any hazardous fire weather 
conditions over the next several days. 




Hydrology... 


A developing low pressure system off to our west will continue to 
open up plenty of moisture in the Gulf of Mexico through the middle 
of this week, with a strong low pressure system expected to develop 
and sweep a strong cold front through our region by Wednesday 
evening. This system, with its vast onshore flow, will have the 
potential to bring heavy rain to much of our region on both Tuesday 
and Wednesday. With embedded heavy thunderstorms, some of which 
could be severe, the potential for widespread rainfall totals of 4 
to 6 inches (with locally higher amounts) could cause flash flooding 
in certain locations. The most likely areas for flooding will be low 
lying and poor drainage areas, but widespread 4 to 6 inch amounts 
could cause flooding on some of of our more vulnerable rivers and 
streams as well.
