AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TALLAHASSEE FL 900 PM EST Wed Nov 9 2011 ...Weak cold FRONT to move across overnight tonight... ...Much cooler and drier weather to end the week with a FREEZE possible Friday NIGHT into early Saturday... In WAKE of front...all the latest models forecast very strong HIGH (currently 1034mb) over Plains to move SEWD and somewhat weaken with rapid ridging building ESE along the Northeast Gulf Coast. This will yield tightening gradients. Expect clearing skies but BREEZY conditions and meager DEW point depressions will prevent a rapid TEMP FALL and development of FROST Thursday night. Significantly colder AIR on the wings of ideal radiational cooling is expected to arrive with lows dropping into the 30s on Friday morning away from the coast. Another cold morning is expected on Saturday morning with temperatures dipping to near the freezing mark across some areas away from the coast. This will LIKELY be our first freeze of the season for portions of local area. As the surface high moves east of our forecast area Saturday, highs will rebound back to average in the lower 70s.
