Area Forecast Discussion|
National Weather Service Tallahassee FL
902pm EST Monday Nov 11 2019
Cold front is located across northern MS moving southeast and at a good steady pace. HRRR (High-Resolution Rapid Refresh) has a good handle on it and advertises it to enter our SE AL counties in the predawn hours. Clouds will increase overnight ahead of the front with light winds. Some light rain has developed off the Gulf into our area so the only real change I made was to bring Probability of Precipitation further east. Otherwise, forecast is in good shape.
Near Term - Through Tonight
Clouds will increase rapidly tonight as a strong cold front approaches the area. Rain will accompany the front and likely reach the western border of the forecast area within a couple of hours of sunrise. With limited instability, thunderstorms do not appear likely.
Short Term - Tuesday Through Wednesday Night
The strong cold front will clear the area during the day on Tuesday with gusty winds and falling temperatures during the day behind it. Strong cold advection on Tuesday night is expected to result in a light freeze across the northern and western portions of the area by Wednesday morning. In addition, since winds will stay somewhat elevated overnight, wind chill values will reach the low to mid 20s across the northwest portions of the area Tuesday night. Despite mostly sunny skies on Wednesday, high temperatures are expected to remain in the 50s across the area with a cold airmass in place. This sets up another chilly night on Wednesday with overnight lows dipping close to freezing again across the northern portions of the area.
Long Term - Thursday Through Monday
Models are in general agreement that an area of low pressure will develop along the Gulf coast in association with another upper level shortwave towards the end of the week. Some timing and intensity differences remain in the guidance, but a chance of rain appears to return at the end of the week.
