.SHORT TERM... (Thursday through Friday night) Issued at 337am EDT Wednesday September 28 2022

Conditions will continue to be breezy areawide thanks to a strong pressure gradient from a 1030 mb high centered across the northeastern states and Hurricane Ian to the east. The official forecast track as of Wednesday morning keeps the worst of the weather east of our area, although some rainbands may affect the eastern portions of the area. High temperatures will be held down in the lower 70s across the eastern areas with more clouds and rain. Highs are expected to range from the mid 70s to low 80s across the western half of the area with overnight lows ranging from the upper 50s to mid 60s.

Long Term
(Saturday through Tuesday) Issued at 337am EDT Wednesday September 28 2022

Ian is expected to be moving away from our area during the extended period with dry conditions continuing. Temperatures are expected to be near to slightly below average with highs generally in the low to mid 80s and overnight lows in the upper 50s to mid 60s.

Marine
Issued at 337am EDT Wednesday September 28 2022

Hurricane Ian is expected to move towards the Florida peninsula today, spreading tropical storm conditions across the coastal waters. Winds and seas are expected to stay elevated for the remainder of this week with a gradual improvement expected this weekend.

Fire Weather
Issued at 337am EDT Wednesday September 28 2022

Low level winds will strengthen over the next few days as Hurricane Ian makes its way towards and into the Florida peninsula. Northeast winds will become breezy beginning today, which will also bring down drier air from the north. Critical fire weather conditions will be situated in southeast Alabama and portions of the Florida panhandle. Into southwest Georgia, elevated fire weather conditions will exist as RH values will be around 28-30 percent. Slightly higher RH values are expected for Thursday, although winds will remain elevated.

Hydrology
Issued at 337am EDT Wednesday September 28 2022

Forecasts for Hurricane Ian continue to trend away from our area with expected rainfall amounts on a decreasing trend. The expected storm total rainfall as of early this morning is in the 2-3 inch across the far eastern portions of our area from approximately Fitzgerald through Valdosta and down to Cross City. These amounts would not result in significant flooding concerns, although a track farther west than expected could still result in higher amounts as the rainfall gradient will be sharp.
