Tallahassee Forecast Discussion 2/23/13
short term(today-monday morning).....
currently there is a flash flood watch in effect until sunday for leon, jefferson and wakulla counties. A flash flood watch means that conditions are favorable for localized flooding of low lying areas. For today expect some active weather to be in the area from the approaching cold front. This may cause the flash flood watch to become a warning if the approaching front moves very slow and allows more rainfall in the area. The front may also be strong enough to produce some thunderstorms for today. Today the high will be around 74F. For tonight there will still be some showers in the area with a low around 58F. Sunday morning will have some lingering showers from the previous day. It will be a milder day with significant cloud cover in the area prohibiting temperatures to reach their full potential. Highs will be around 72F. Sunday night the low will be around 60F.
For the extended period the NAM and GFS models are in agreement for this period. Monday a low will gain strength from over the Gulf of Mexico bringing more rain to the area. Given these facts the flash flood watch may be extended but as more time progresses through this period we will see how the models change. The front is expected to leave the area around Tuesday afternoon. After this low pressure system passes though the area expect calmer weather during the rest of the forecast period.
Temperatures during this period will still be warmer after the fronts pass though our area. Expect highs to range around 65F-70F.

Tallahassee Forecast Discussion 2/9/13
Today there is currently a high pressure system in the area that will bring some pleasant weather for the short term period. Today's highs will be around 68F. The low for tonight will be around 50F. Sunday will have a high around 70F and Sunday night will have a low around 60F. With saturation occurring around this time it is reasonable to say that there will be some possible rain in the morning.
Long term(Monday afternoon-Friday)
The extended period begins with an incoming front from the west on Monday. The NAM and GFS models are in good agreement with the incoming front on Monday and at this moment is expected to stay in the area until Tuesday followed by another low pressure system set to arrive on Wednesday. At this moment this system is expected to clear out by early Thursday morning. We will know more in the incoming days. Temperatures during this extended period during the daytime are projected to be around the mid 60s after Tuesday.

Today colder weather dominates the Tallahassee area after the passing of the cold front. Currently a surface ridge is in place over the local area and will bring sunny and mostly clear skies for today. The high will be around 63F. Tonight expect a low around 40F. Sunday will be slightly warmer than today with a high around 65F. The low for Sunday night will be around 38F. The high for Monday will be slightly cooler with a high around 63F.
For the extended period current NAM and GFS models are in slight agreement. There will be a disturbance coming to the area around Tuesday afternoon for the GFS and early Wednesday morning for the NAM. This is something to keep a close watch on in the coming days. Temperatures for these days in the extended period are in good agreement. They average around the mid to upper 60s for the high and the low temperatures average around mid to upper 50s. As we progress through next week we will have a clearer picture of the high and low temperatures along with the coming precipitation.
