Good morning from rainy South Florida. It was coming down pretty good around 5-6 am. No clue how much rain we have received since I forgot to dump the rain gauge from last week. lol Rolling Eyes

That's what I saw to Largo. Flip a coin on the amount of rain. I heard it will slow down and might lose most of the rain. Time will tell.

...BIG CHANGE TO COLDER WETTER CONDITIONS LATER THIS WEEK...

.NEAR TERM /TONIGHT-WEDNESDAY/...

Rest of this afternoon...Fog dissipated late morning over all
land areas...but still lingers just off the ATLC Coast from JAX
northward to Brunswick GA. Overall expect mainly dry and partly
sunny, mild conds near 80 over inland areas with just a slight
chance of a sprinkle along the I-95 corridor south of JAX in the
developing Cu field. Otherwise there is a small chance that a weak
SE/sea breeze may develop along the coast and bring the fog bank
back onshore from JAX northward into coastal SE GA...likely only a
few miles but could produce lower vsbys towards sunset although
most Hi-res models just have it dissipating by this time. The
Dense Fog advisory remains in effect until 6pm for the nearshore
coastal waters from JAX northward to Brunswick to account for this
dense fog bank but still too early to determine if land-based fog
advisory will be needed for the ATLC Coast this evening.

Tonight...Overall other than ATLC Coast fog threat early this
evening expect Mostly Clear skies to develop briefly around sunset
before high clouds slowly increase towards midnight ahead of
approaching cold front. A light S-SW flow will develop which will
pull low-level moisture off the NE GOMex and may trigger the re-
development of far inland low clouds/stratus/fog around midnight
along the I-75 corridor after midnight which could slowly
translate E/NE through the night and have just labeled this
possibility as "Areas of Fog" in the forecast grids for now. Any
pre-cold frontal precipitation expected won`t be until morning
across inland SE GA generally N and W of Waycross GA. Mild
overnight lows around 60 degrees expected.

Wednesday...Pre-cold frontal precip will continue to slowly
progress E/SE across the region but slowly enough that will it
will just reach the coastal areas later in the day. Rainfall
amounts still remain generally light over far inland areas, less
than a quarter of an inch. Expect Cloudy skies to develop area-
wide ahead of the band of precip, with Max Temp forecast the most
tricky with temps steady in the 60s or slowly falling behind the
front across SE GA, meanwhile enough southerly flow and filtered
sunshine early in the day across NE FL will allow another day to
push back well into the 70s and near 80 across Marion/Flagler
county. Again timing of frontal pcpn to be key to temp forecast
for Wednesday afternoon.

.SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/...

Cold front moves south of our area Wednesday night thru Thursday
night...with areas of overrunning light rain expected north of the
front...with upper trough axis back over southern Plains.
Widespread cloudiness...occasional precipitation, and cold air
advection will reduce diurnal temp range Thursday to less than 10
degrees...with well below normal temps expected. High temps
Thursday upr 40s to lwr 50s se GA...lwr-mid 50s I-10 corridor...
upr 50s to lwr 60s nctrl FL. Rainfall amounts will generally be
light...generally less than one-half inch.

.LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK/...

Friday will be a cold wet day with cold air advection...widespread
cloudiness and occasional rain. Latest consensus guidance shows
very high POP values...with low temps in upr 40s to lwr 50s..a
little higher nctrl FL and FL coast. High temps Friday well below
normal...upr 40s se GA and lwr 50s ne Fl....with mid-upr 50s nctrl
FL and FL coast. How cold it gets Friday night depends on cloud
cover With some partial clearing late interior se GA...likely to
see mid 30s...with upr 30s-lwr 40s elsewhere with more cloudiness.

Saturday...gradual clearing is anticipated from NW to SE during the
day. High temps will be well below normal despite any insolation...
mid 50s se GA...55-60 ne FL. With mostly clear skies and light
winds Saturday night...low temps likely to approach freezing
interior areas of se GA and Lake City westward along I-10
corridor or ne FL... with mid-upr 30s elsewhere.

Sunday-Monday...A reinforcing shot of cold air comes Sunday...with
cold air advection keeping high temps in the mid 50s se GA...
55-60 ne FL despite sunshine. Decreasing winds again Sunday night
will lead to low temps again near freezing interior se GA...35-40
interior ne FL...lwr 40s near coast. Some airmass modification
supporting somewhat warmer high temps Monday 60-65 most areas...
with mid-upr 60s Tuesday. Dry conditions expected Sun/Mon...with
rain chances increasing thereafter ahead of another big cold
front approaching Tue.

Good afternoon. Whew, end of year work rush is wearing me out mentally.

Looking forward to the prolonged stretch of cooler weather with at least 5 consecutive days in the 50's and 60's. Trees will be dropping leaves big time up here in a week.

Looks like a perfect weekend to cook a beef stew in the crockpot. Haven't had it since last winter. I'm a meat/potatos guy. I can smell it slow-cooking already!

.SHORT TERM (Today through Thursday)...
The current upper level pattern is dominated by a large
trough over eastern Canada and the upper mid west, while
weak ridging holds over southern Florida and the Bahamas.
This trough is propagating a large cold front through the
eastern seaboard and along the northern Gulf Coast, with IR
satellite and regional radar showing a band of clouds and
showers slowly pushing southeast through the Florida
Panhandle. Through today and into this evening, this front
and associated bands of showers will continue to slowly sag
south into the northern half of the forecast area. Moisture
ahead of this front is fairly limited, and so far the bands
of showers have remained rather light. Although a few
heavier showers may develop as the front pushes into the
area, rain totals are expected to remain fairly limited.
Temperatures will be a little cooler over the Nature Coast
tonight behind this front, with lows dropping into the 50s,
but farther south, lows will remain in the low to mid 60s,
with patchy fog possible once again tonight.

...FIRST FREEZE FOR MUCH OF THE AREA EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND...

.Near term /Through Tonight/...
Cold front has made it just about all the way through northeast
Florida this morning. Behind it, cold air advection will bring much
cooler temperatures, abundant cloud cover, and periods of
drizzle/light rain expected to continue for much of the day
today. Precip will start out more isolated, but as the day goes
on, coverage and rainfall rates will increase from north to south.
High temperatures this afternoon will likely only be a few
degrees warmer than current temperatures (upper 40s to low 50s
north of I-10, mid 50s to low 60s south of I-10). North-northeast
winds will be quite breezy near the coast and over the waters.
Rain chances will continue into tonight, with widespread totals
near one inch expected across southeast Georgia, and around a half
an inch across northeast Florida through early Friday morning.
Overnight lows in the 40s are expected for most of the area.

Post by LargoFL on Thu Dec 07, 2017 3:32 am

(clipped) NWS Tampa ....................Long Term (Friday Night through next Wednesday)...
A big weather pattern change, compared to the generally warm
conditions thus far this month, is in store for the majority
of the long term period. Although the responsible front
will be stuck across the area during Thursday and much of
the daylight hours of Friday, it movement will be rapidly
kick-started once again Friday night and well off to our
south and east by early Saturday morning.

Guidance in very good agreement showing a longwave trough in
place over the eastern CONUS Friday night...with a strong
shortwave impulse rounding its base over the northern Gulf
of Mexico. This energy will quickly approach the Florida
west coast Friday Night...passing overhead during Saturday.
It will be this atmospheric push that finally drives the
front out of our area...and allows the much cooler airmass
to reach all of the Florida peninsula.

Ahead of this approaching shortwave Friday
night...impressive Qvector convergence...within a broad
region of height falls will overspread the Florida west
coast. This upper support for ascent, will complement fairly
vigorous low level thermal frontogenetic circulations
migrating through the region. Feel confident given the
coincident upper and lower forcing to go with widespread
categorical rain chances 80-100% Friday night. Generally
speaking the nature of the wind fields will yield a mostly
anafront configuration, resulting in most of the shower
activity falling within the cooler post-frontal airmass, and
really decreasing the potential for any vigorous
thunderstorm activity. Given the forcing, a few rumbles of
thunder are possible, but any storms should not be surface
based.

The progressive nature of the system and associated dynamics
by early Saturday morning suggest a quick end to the
shower activity over much of the region during the first
half of the day. Areas north of I-4 may be completely done
by sunrise. Have gone with likely rain chances down toward
Fort Myers during the morning...given the good agreement in
lingering showers among the guidance members, but feel even
these far southern areas will see quick improvement for the
afternoon.

We will see our weather dry out Saturday, but the colder air
will be making its self known. High temperatures north of
the I-4 corridor should fail to get out of the 50s Saturday,
with only lower/mid 60s further south. First real "cold"
night of this pattern for the entire region will be Saturday
Night. Widespread temperatures in the 40s expected, with
30s for the Nature coast. A few spots in Levy county may
briefly approach freezing toward dawn Sunday, and this
potential will need to be watched closely. Have added patchy
frost to the forecast for parts of the Nature coast as well
(generally spots with temp 35 or less). Confidence is not
high in significant frost Saturday Night since surface winds
may not be light enough. However, any more protected area
that do attempt to decouple late at night will need to be
watched.

The coldest night of the event looks to be Sunday Night, as
high pressure attempts to ridge in from the west. The
potential for more widespread frost to the north of the I-4
corridor is higher Sunday night, along with potential for a
few hours of sub-freezing temps to the north of the
Brooksville area. This potential for a bonafide freeze will
need to be watched very closely with future forecast.

A slow moderating trend begins Monday into Tuesday, but may
be rather short-lived. The slight warm-up will mainly be
due to thermal ridging ahead of the next impulse shown by
both the GFS/ECMWF to dig into the southeast CONUS during
Tuesday. This feature looks to drive another cold front
through later Tuesday/Tuesday night...with a potential
reinforcing shot of cold air in its wake. Moisture will
generally be lacking with this next system, but the strength
of the passing shortwave shown by the long range global
guidance suggests adding low end shower chances for Tuesday.

NWS Tampa (clipped)..........................EXCESSIVE COLD IMPACT...
A much colder airmass will arrive across the region for the
upcoming weekend. Temperatures are expected to drop into the 30s
to the north of the I-4 corridor Saturday night, with a few spots
to the north of Brooksville approaching freezing toward dawn on
Sunday. Patchy frost is also possible across the Nature Coast
Saturday night. An even colder night is anticipated for Sunday
night into early Monday morning. Temperatures dropping into the
middle and upper 30s are expected to expand well south of the I-4
corridor over inland locations, with most of the Nature coast
dropping into the lower and middle 30s. Locations north of
Brooksville have a greater potential for a period of sub-freezing
temperatures. Lighter winds Sunday night will also promote areas
of frost development for locations with temperatures in the 30s.

Cold front came in here yesterday evening around 7:30. It rained hard for all of about 2 minutes. The temp dropped quickly with the rainfall from 68 to 52 degrees. I had light rain overnight and early this morning and the temp was 47 degrees with a nice brisk northerly wind making it feel raw out this morning. Needless to say it's a nice day to stay inside. My rainfall for the front is currently at 0.20". Looks like our first real freeze of the year is behind the front this weekend.

.NEAR TERM [Through Today]...

A cloudy day with light rain is in store for today. With an upper
level trough positioned over TX, mid to upper level flow will remain
southwesterly today. With plenty of moisture and some isotropic lift
this morning (although it decreases for the afternoon), rain that
has persisted overnight will continue with intermittent showers
throughout the day. In addition, the low clouds this morning will
also remain in place. Diurnal temperature trends will be limited
today by the extensive cloud coverage and highs will only climb into
the mid to upper 40s with the mid 50s further south across the CTY
area.


.SHORT TERM [Tonight Through Sunday]...

The shortwave over the far western Gulf will move east with the axis
of the highly amplified long wave trough approaching our western
zones by daybreak Saturday. Most of the deep layer moisture will
have moved to the east of the CWA by that time. This is important
because with the colder airmass filtering in from the northwest,
temperatures will be dropping into the lower to mid 30s along and
west of the river. The current thinking is that there may be a brief
period of a rain/light snow mix or a brief period of a change over
to light snow over portions of SE AL and our northwest Georgia zones
late tonight with little or no impacts. Accumulations of snow, if
any, should only occur on grassy areas. There may be lingering
showers or patchy light rain across our eastern zones Saturday until
late morning, otherwise the remainder of the forecast will be dry.

The next concern will be preparing for what should be our first
widespread freeze of the fall season Saturday night. After highs in
the lower 50s on Saturday, temps are expected to drop into the upper
20s Saturday night under clear skies and light winds. Under sunny
skies Sunday, temps should only reach the upper 40s to lower 50s.

NWS Tampa...........Fri Dec 8 2017

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for West Central And Southwest
Florida.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A cold front shifting south through west central and southwest
Florida later today will bring increasing chances for showers and
thunderstorms. Rapidly increasing atmospheric moisture will allow
for some areas to see prolonged periods of heavy rain with high
rain totals and localized flooding possible. Additionally, a few
of the stronger thunderstorms will be capable of producing
damaging winds or an isolated tornado.

...FLOOD IMPACT...
Locally heavy rainfall is expected. The heavy rain will produce
flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas as well as the
ponding of water on roadways. Motorists should exercise caution.

...MARINE IMPACTS...
As a cold front shifts south through the area tonight, winds over
the eastern Gulf of Mexico are expected to increase to around 20
knots or greater during the early evening, producing advisory
level conditions that will continue overnight. These winds will
create hazardous boating conditions for small craft operators.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.

...EXCESSIVE COLD IMPACT...
A much colder airmass will arrive across the region for the
upcoming weekend. Temperatures are expected to drop into the 30s
to the north of the I-4 corridor Saturday night, with a few spots
to the north of Brooksville approaching freezing toward dawn on
Sunday. Patchy frost is also possible across the Nature Coast
Saturday night. An even colder night is anticipated for Sunday
night into early Monday morning. Temperatures dropping into the
middle and upper 30s are expected to expand well south of the I-4
corridor over inland locations, with most of the Nature coast
dropping into the lower and middle 30s. Locations north of
Brooksville have a greater potential for a period of sub-freezing
temperatures. Lighter winds Sunday night will also promote areas
of frost development for locations with temperatures in the 30s.

...RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
An enhanced risk of stronger and more frequent rip currents is
expected to develop along the beaches of west-central and
southwest Florida on Saturday. Conditions for rip currents will
subside during Sunday.

...MARINE IMPACTS...
Advisory level winds over 20 knots will continue through the day
on Saturday before slowly improving Saturday night and Sunday.
After a brief lull in the winds, another frontal passage on
Tuesday will bring winds back up to near advisory levels. These
winds will create hazardous boating conditions for small craft
operators.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotters should monitor the weather and self activate if needed.

NWS Melbourne.....FRI DEC 8 2017

.NOW...through this morning...Some light...showery precipitation will
be possible. Developing southerly flow will push a weak
stationary boundary from the central peninsula northward during the
day. A stronger front will be preceded this evening and overnight by
a line of showers and isolated strong storms. Threats include
lightning...gusty winds...small hail...and torrential downpours
leading to minor...nuisance flooding in some spots. This line of
storms is expected to move across the I-4 corridor from mid to late
evening...then progress east and south through the remainder of the
night. Showers and storms will push off of the east coast and across
the near shore Atlantic waters later tonight.

Expect south to southwest winds today to increase to 10 to 15 mph. A
warm day is forecast in the upper 70s north of I-4 and lower to
middle 80s southward across east central Florida.

Good morning. I have a day off today which feels nice. May get a thunderstorm here but no severe threat. You folks in the bay area to Orlando need to keep a look out overnight. SPC has a slight risk on their day 1 outlook which is valid to early tomorrow morning.



Day 1 Convective Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
1133 PM CST Thu Dec 07 2017

Valid 081200Z - 091200Z

...THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS PARTS OF
THE FLORIDA PENINSULA...

...THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS OUTSIDE OF THE
SLIGHT RISK AREA ACROSS PARTS OF THE FLORIDA PENINSULA...

...SUMMARY...
Some severe thunderstorms associated with wind damage and a tornado
threat are expected across parts of the Florida Peninsula Friday
night to daybreak on Saturday.

...Florida Peninsula...
An upper-level trough will move eastward today across the southern
Plains and into the lower Mississippi Valley tonight extending
southward into the western Gulf of Mexico. Southwest mid-level flow
will remain in place across much of the southeastern U.S. At the
surface, a cold front will advance southeastward into northern
Florida by this afternoon with a moist airmass located ahead of the
front across much of the Florida Peninsula. Lift will gradually
increase along the front this evening into the overnight period as a
50 to 60 kt low-level jet strengthens. In response, thunderstorms
will develop along and just ahead of the front in north-central
Florida this evening with a line of storms moving southeastward into
the central Florida Peninsula during the overnight period. A few
isolated thunderstorms will also likely develop tonight ahead of the
front. A severe threat will be possible with this convection through
daybreak on Saturday.

By mid to late evening, the cold front should be positioned near
Gainesville in northern Florida with a moist airmass located
southward from the front into central Florida. Surface dewpoints are
forecast to be in the upper 60s and lower 70s F across much of
central Florida which will aid the development of moderate
instability. In addition, forecast soundings by 06Z/Saturday near
Tampa Bay show moderate to strong deep-layer shear with 0-6 km shear
reaching the 40 to 50 kt range. This will likely support a severe
threat as a line of strong thunderstorms develops and moves
southeastward during the late evening and overnight period. Isolated
wind damage and possibly a tornado may occur along the stronger
parts of the line. A few storms are also expected to develop ahead
of the line across the warm sector where moderate shear and
instability will also be sufficient for severe storms. These storms
could develop supercell characteristics and be accompanied by a wind
damage and tornado threat. The severe threat should persist through
late in the period as the line of storms moves across the central
Florida Peninsula.

Had .52" of rain yesterday evening. 1-3" more in the forecast the next 24 hours then tomorrow night and Sunday night will be around 30 degrees. BRRRR. Once the rain clears out tomorrow morning I'll be wrapping the exposed pipes outdoors (water spigots and irrigation backflow) then will need to pull in a few potted plants.

Good morning all. TGIF. So far this front has been an over producer for rainfall in my area. With an additional 0.65" last night my total is up to .85" for the event, with more coming today and tonight as the system(s) finally clear the area. Temps here have been mighty chilly but pretty steady since our first rains Wed evening. The high yesterday topped out at 54, but the low over night only dropped to 48. That will change this weekend with clear skies and freezing conditions expected both Saturday and Sunday nights. Our community Christmas get together and boat parade is tomorrow evening so the weather should really help get everyone in the spirit. I just hope the winds and waves aren't too much that they cancel the boat parade.

I don't think there's really a limit Largo like the 2K limit WU had for member blogs but I'll throw a new one together. Give me 20 minutes or so to work on something.
