936 FXUS62 KTAE 261901 AFDTAE AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TALLAHASSEE FL 301 PM EDT Tue Aug 26 2014 .Near Term [Through Tonight]...
-- Changed Discussion --
High pressure along the eastern seaboard will weaken overnight, allowing the northeasterly flow across the forecast area to weaken as well. Any lingering showers for areas south of I-10 should diminish rapidly by around sunset, with no overnight precip expected over land areas. .Short Term [Wednesday Through Thursday Night]... The upper ridge with very dry air in the mid to upper levels will remain in place through the short term period. Low level flow will be from the east to northeast through Wednesday night then become southeasterly on Thursday bringing increasing moisture to the boundary layer. We may see some coastal showers Thursday night. Otherwise, PoPs over land will be at 10% or less. Daytime temps will be above climo with highs in the lower to mid 90s away from the immediate coast. Dew points are forecast to mix out in the upper 50s to lower 60s both afternoons with the exception of the immediate coast where upper 60s to lower 70s will be common. As a result, heat indices will not be concern as they should stay within a few degrees of actual air temps. The exception will be along the immediate coast on Thursday where heat indices may rise at or just above 100 degrees. .Long Term [Friday Through Tuesday]... The GFS and ECMWF show the Tri-State region residing on the western periphery of deep layer ridging through Saturday. After that the GFS expands the ridge westward while becoming less amplified. The ECMWF keeps the area under the western portion of the de-amplifying ridge. At the surface, low level flow will be southerly with the high situated well east of the Atlantic seaboard. Both solutions show a return of deep layer moisture to the area with near to above normal rain chances each day. Despite the increase in rain chances, max temps will generally be above climo in the lower to mid 90s.
