Short Term(today-Monday morning)
Today a frontal system is passing though the area that is bringing rain and some severe thunderstorms. Currently there is some very light rain in the city of Tallahassee but on the coast there are some high topped clouds indicating strong storm cells along the coastal area. This system is starting to dissipate at the moment. Current Visible, Infrared and Water Vapor satellite images confirm this. Since the frontal system affected the area early this morning temperatures for today will be below average for this time of the year. The high for today is projected to be around 88F. For tonight the low will be around 77F. Dewpoints will be in the low to mid 70s which will create a feeling of a hot and muggy day. Some overnight rain is expected to be in the area overnight. Sunday the high will be around the same as Saturday which is in the upper 80s. Again this is still below the seasonal average for this time of the year. There will be a some showers on Sunday as well. Sunday night/Monday morning the low will be around 75F.

Long Term(Monday afternoon-Friday)

The long term period is an active period this week. Currently both NAM and GFS models are in agreement for instability in the area next week. Every day during the long term period next week will have showers projected. This may alter plans for people in the upcoming fourth of July holiday. Temperatures during this period will be slightly below seasonal averages because of the showers that will be present during the long term period. Highs during this period will be in the upper 80s.

Short term(tonight-friday)


This short term period attention is on the first named storm for the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. This tropical storm is named Andrea. Current satellite imagery has the storm still in the Gulf of Mexico and moving north at 5mph. IR satellite imagery shows the storm with some organization. Water Vapor imagery shows the storm with some organization in the upper levels as well. What this means for the Tallahassee area is that there will be rain form the feeder bands of the storm and slightly below average temperatures for this time of the year. There is a flash flood in effect until Friday morning. A flash flood watch means that conditions for localized flooding can occur and low lying areas should be avoided as well as any standing water. For tonight lows will be around 73F. Highs will be around 84F. Thursday night/Friday mornings low will be around 70F. Highs for friday will be around 87F. With the incoming storm rainfall will be the biggest threat to the area. Both the NAM and GFS are in agreement on the current path of the tropical storm. This will be updated as time progresses and more model runs are made.
