Area Forecast Discussion|
National Weather Service Tallahassee FL
1040pm EDT Sunday September 22 2019
The previous forecast is in good shape, with no changes necessary this evening.
Near Term - Through Tonight
High pressure situated over the mid-Atlantic states is producing light easterly winds around 5 knots on its southern periphery. A wedge of dry air is in place over our entire CWA, contributing to basically zero PoPs. High temperatures around 90 this afternoon will bottom out comfortably in the middle 60s for overnight lows.
Short Term - Monday Through Tuesday Night
Fair weather is anticipated during the short term. A deep layer ridge continues to shift west of the area, which will allow a weak boundary to approach from the north on Tuesday. A thin ribbon of moisture will accompany this feature, but large scale lift is absent. An isolated shower is possible northwest of the Flint River on Tuesday. Patchy fog will be possible on Tuesday morning, but confidence is not high enough to include in the forecast at this time.
Temperatures will range from the low to mid 90s on Monday and Tuesday, well above average for late September. The daily record high in Tallahassee on Tuesday is 96 set back in both 1931 and 1933, and this could be challenged.
Long Term - Wednesday Through Sunday
Deep layer ridging is expected to continue across the region through the forecast period. The main story will be the heat. High temperatures are forecast to be in the middle 90s through Saturday, with some relief possible by Sunday in association with the backdoor cold front. Daily record high temperatures at both Tallahassee and Apalachicola could be challenged on multiple days during this time frame! In addition heat index values in the FL Panhandle are expected to range from 100 to 105 degrees during this time frame. The next chance for any precipitation more than an isolated shower would be on Sunday with the backdoor front, but guidance is trending dry at this time.
