NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tallahassee Florida 
338 am EDT sun Aug 2 2015 


Near term [through today]... 
a weak surface low has developed early this morning in Apalachee 
Bay, embedded in a larger northeast to southwest oriented surface 
trough. Strong low/mid level southwesterly flow south of this trough 
will continue to push tropical moisture into the southeastern Big 
Bend counties today. Once again, the focus of the heaviest rain will 
be in Taylor and Dixie counties as the weak surface low tracks 
northeast and keeps the onshore flow in place to its south. With 
radar estimated storm total amounts close to 15 inches along the 
coast in these counties, any additional rainfall will continue to 
worsen the ongoing flooding situation. With the highly efficient 
warm rain processes forecast to continue in the area today, another 
4 to 6 inches of rain is not out of the question through tonight. 


Farther north, the offshore flow to the north of the surface low and 
associated trough will provide a sharp cut-off to the heavy rain. 
Only scattered storms are expected this afternoon along the I-10 
corridor, with even less coverage further north where a drier 
airmass will be in place. Will trim back the Flash Flood Watch 
further this morning to remove Madison and Jefferson counties. 


Away from the widespread rain in the southeastern Big Bend, hot 
temperatures are expected under sunnier skies. Expect to see highs 
in the mid 90s from southwest Georgia into the Florida Panhandle and 
southeast Alabama. 


Short term [tonight through tuesday]... 
after a few days of very wet conditions across the southeastern 
third of the forecast area, the pattern will finally begin to 
shift as a weak surface low over the eastern Gulf moves away from 
the region, taking much of the moisture with it. Still some 
potential for locally heavy rainfall overnight, though the overall 
forcing looks to diminish significantly after 06z Monday. Drier 
air will move into the northwestern portion of the forecast area 
on Monday, keeping rain chances confined to the daily sea breeze 
circulation at the coast. Much the same is expected for Tuesday as 
the subtropical ridge moves back over the Florida Peninsula. 


High temperatures throughout the short term period will generally 
be in the low to mid 90s, with the warmest values further to the 
northwest near to Albany and Dothan, where less afternoon convection 
is expected. 


Long term [tuesday night through sunday]... 
the first half of the long term period will feature a typical 
summertime pattern with our region starting on the western 
periphery of the subtropical ridge on Wednesday and the ridge 
building into the eastern Gulf of Mexico by Thursday. This pattern 
typically keeps 30 to 40 percent rain chances in the forecast, 
primarily in North Florida nearer the sea breeze boundaries. 


Friday will transition back to a wetter period as a frontal system 
moves through the Tennessee River valley and into the southeast. 
Long range guidance for Saturday and Sunday suggest a frontal 
boundary may once again stall across the region, with rain chances 
increasing above climatology by the end of the period. 


Temperatures will remain near normal throughout the period with 
highs mainly in the low to mid 90s through Thursday. Thereafter, 
temperatures will be a little cooler as more afternoon storms are 
expected. 


&& 


Aviation... 
[through 06z monday]ifr cigs will likely impact ktlh, kaby, and 
kvld this morning, with cigs rising to VFR levels by mid to late 
morning. Lower chances of afternoon/evening storms today, with 
greatest threat at kvld. 


&& 


Marine... 
southwesterly flow at advisory levels will continue today around 
the eastern edge of a weak low pressure area in Apalachee Bay. 
As this feature moves away from the marine area on Monday, expect 
winds and seas to return to normal summertime levels by Tuesday. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
no fire weather concerns through the next several days. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
rainfall totals since Friday morning across southeastern Taylor 
and Dixie counties were in the 10 to 15 inch range as estimated 
by radar with a couple of higher totals near 18 to 19 inches. A 
couple of observations in excess of 10 inches were also reported 
in Dixie County in the last 24 hours. Widespread areal flooding 
is common across these areas, as natural drainage systems are 
overcome by excess runoff. Unfortunately, little if any 
improvement in the flood situation is expected today. With the 
weak surface low still west of The Big Bend, expect another round 
of heavy rainfall, though not as extreme as Saturday. Another 3 to 
6 inches with isolated heavier totals is expected. 


The primary focus for river flooding is on the Steinhatchee River 
where modest rises continue. With basin areal totals in the 9 to 
12 inch range in the last 48 hours, there are some strong 
similarities with this event and the 5/17/14 flood event. 
Accounting for basin areal average rainfall today of 2 to 3 
inches, the river is anticipated to crest on Monday afternoon near 
15.2 feet. This is just below moderate flood stage (15.7 feet). 
Should rainfall amounts today be on the higher side, this forecast 
would need to be revised upward. 


Elsewhere, river flooding is not anticipated. The bulk of the 
heavy rainfall in the Suwannee basin fell south of Rock Bluff. 
Though some minor rises have occurred at Wilcox and Manatee 
Springs, this portion of the river will remain safely below action 
stage. With the increased runoff from further upstream and tides 
running about a foot above normal at the Suwannee River entrance, 
the Fowlers Bluff point will likely reach action stage at each high 
tide cycle through Monday afternoon.
