294 FXUS62 KTAE 250616 AFDTAE AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TALLAHASSEE FL 216 AM EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 .Near Term [Through Today]...
-- Changed Discussion --
In the wake of a departing shortwave trough, deep layer ridging will begin to build toward the region today. As high pressure at the surface moves eastward into the region, light northerly flow is expected. Continued dry conditions and sunny skies will allow temperatures to warm into the upper 70s, with a few sites reaching 80 in North Florida. .Short Term [Tonight Through Monday]... High pressure, at the surface and aloft, will build over the region tonight through Monday. This will keep the weather dry, and allow afternoon temperatures to warm back to above normal levels. Expect high temperatures in the lower to mid 80s on Sunday and the mid 80s on Monday. The very dry airmass will keep overnight lows seasonable, with upper 40s to lower 50s tonight and lower to mid 50s Sunday night. .Long Term [Monday Night Through Saturday]... The upper ridge will continue to move east early in the period with a trough deepening into the Southeast by Thursday and Friday. A cold front will approach from the northwest on Wednesday and then slow down. There are still timing differences with the arrival of the front in our forecast area. However, any noticeably cooler air will not arrive until after the period. In the interim, temps will be above normal with highs gradually falling from the mid 80s on Monday to around 80 on Friday. Lows will generally be in the mid to upper 50s inland with 60s near the coast.
