936pm EDT Sat Mar 28 2020
The overnight forecast remains in good shape, with no updates necessary this evening.
.NEAR TERM [Through Sunday]... Near record heat will repeat into Sunday with highs around 90 degrees away from the gulf coast. For some perspective, average highs are in the middle 70s.
Fog is likely again tonight and Sunday morning, but it should be more patchy compared to the extent observed this morning. The highest confidence in areas of dense fog is from the eastern FL Big Bend northward into portions southwest GA.
An approaching cold front could lead to an isolated shower and rumble of thunder west of the Flint River into the Wiregrass region Sunday afternoon.
.SHORT TERM [Sunday Night and Monday]... No major weather concerns during this time frame...continued dry and very warm. High temperatures in the middle 80s to around 90 degrees. The pattern looks less favorable for fog Monday morning.
Long Term - Monday Night Through Saturday
The main concern during this period is the potential for severe weather centered on Tuesday. A progressive, neutral tilt southern stream shortwave will move across the Tennessee Valley with an associated upper level jet maxima around 100 kts. Considerable uncertainty given some of the more favorable parameters may be out of phase, including questionable instability and mid-level lapse rates. With the strong wind field in place and drier air mass advecting in aloft, there is at least a damaging wind threat.
