Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Tallahassee FL
941 AM EDT FRI MAY 6 2016

.UPDATE...

The upper level low across the Carolina coast this morning will
continue to lift northward. Across the CWA it will continue to
remain dry. The forecast is on track and thus only minor changes
to account for hourly trends with the update this morning.

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION [559 AM EDT]...

.NEAR TERM [Through Today]...

A deep upper level trough will continue to persist along the east
coast today. Dry northwest flow over the local area will allow for
another day of mostly sunny skies with afternoon high temperatures
in the mid to upper 70s.


.SHORT TERM [Tonight Through Sunday]...

As deep low pressure moves off the mid-Atlantic coastline, stacked
high pressure will move in across the Gulf coast. Lows will be in
the 50s and highs will be in the 80s. No rain is forecast.


.LONG TERM [Sunday Night Through Friday]...

As high pressure will shifts eastward, onshore flow will begin to
return moisture to the area Monday. By Tuesday, a more unsettled
pattern will move into place over the southeast and chances for rain
will return, but remain in the 20-30% range for now. Highs will be
in the 80s and lows will be in the 60s.


.AVIATION...

[Through 12z Saturday] VFR conditions will prevail through the
period with clear skies. Northwest winds are expected to gust to
between 15 and 20 knots at times from late morning through sunset
across most of the area.


.MARINE...

Winds will fall below advisory levels this morning and continue to
gradually fall through the weekend.


.FIRE WEATHER...

Dry conditions will continue through the weekend. While min RH
values will be low this afternoon, durations will not be long enough
for red flag concerns, and winds are also expected to be too light.
Similar conditions are expected for Saturday.


.HYDROLOGY...

With no rainfall expected for the next several days, there are no
flooding concerns.
