.SHORT TERM... (Tuesday night through Wednesday night) Issued at 358pm EDT Monday Jun 24 2024

Several shortwaves rounding the base of a trough across the Great Lakes Region will bring with them a frontal feature that looks to aid in forcing for ascent. This will lead to scattered showers and storms, primarily across our Florida counties where instability and moisture are more abundant. Strong gusty winds are the primary hazard of concern with this storms as high lapse rates and inverted- V sounding profiles are expected.

Expect overnight lows generally in the mid 70s with daytime highs generally in the mid to upper 90s.

Long Term
(Thursday through Sunday) Issued at 358pm EDT Monday Jun 24 2024

The aforementioned frontal feature is expected to remain stalled across the southeast, leading to unsettled weather through Friday. Thus, showers and storms are expected to remain scattered, with the highest Probability of Precipitation being along the sea breeze, primarily within our Florida counties. Once we get into this weekend upper level ridging looks to begin building over the region. This will introduce large- scale subsidence and inhibit convection for the eastern half of our area. Conversely, areas along the Florida Panhandle and SE Alabama have better chances of seeing scattered showers and/or storms where PWATs (Precipitable Waters) and instability looks to be higher. There's also the chance that the SE FL Big Bend sees some activity due to the Atlantic sea breeze being enhanced due to the placement of the upper-level ridge.

Expect daytime highs generally in the mid to upper 90s with overnight lows generally in the mid 70s.

Marine
Issued at 358pm EDT Monday Jun 24 2024

Mainly southwesterly winds should hold through tonight before teetering between westerly and southwesterly afterwards. Seas will generally be between 1 to 3 feet, with the 3 foot waves being favored west of Apalachicola. However, long-period swells will continue through the period as a disturbance sits off northeast Mexico. Nightly chances of showers and storms will be possible over the waters with the highest chances east of Apalachicola.

Fire Weather
Issued at 358pm EDT Monday Jun 24 2024

High dispersions are expected across SE Alabama and SW Georgia Tuesday as mixing heigheights reach near 8000 feet across these regions. Transport winds will predominantly remain below 10 mph out of the west/southwest on Tuesday. Showers and thunderstorms look likely across the Florida Big Bend and portions of the Florida Panhandle on Tuesday as the trailing frontal boundary becomes quasi-stationary across north Florida. Overall, outside of thunderstorm activity and high dispersions across the aforementioned regions, there are no fire weather concerns at this time.

Hydrology
Issued at 358pm EDT Monday Jun 24 2024

Diurnal pop-up thunderstorms could lead to localized flooding concerns where slow moving storms could produce several inches of rainfall. Otherwise, there are currently no river flooding concerns.
