Discussion
Tonight and Saturday...

a stout mid-level anticyclone remains centered over the southeast
conus, with surface ridging extending from the northern gulf of
mexico into the western atlantic. Meanwhile, low-level troughing and
deep layer moisture will remain well to our south over the caribbean
sea. This pattern will keep us in a dry and subsident regime, with
periodic pushes of shallow low-level moisture bringing occasional
scattered to broken cloud cover at times. With easterly 1000-850 mb
winds sustained around 20 kt, and good mixing into the surface
layer, look for winds to remain elevated tonight (especially near
the atlantic coast), with afternoon gustiness returning on
Saturday. With regards to temperatures, expect readings on the
warm side, with lows largely in the upper 60s to mid 70s. Highs
tomorrow will again be warmest for the western interior and gulf
coast regions, while the easterly atlantic flow will provide some
moderation to temperatures for the east coast. Went slightly
above guidance for western areas, bringing highs into the lower
90s, while capped eastern areas in the mid 80s.

Sunday through Wednesday...

the expansive mid-upper ridge will weaken slightly while dipping
equatorward over the gulf of mexico into florida. This will allow
surface ridging to remain from the western atlantic into our area,
keeping quiet and warm conditions in place. Once again, the greatest
likelihood for above normal temperatures will be across the
western interior and gulf coast regions as easterly flow remains.

Thursday through Saturday...

the upper ridge will retrograde towards the western gulf of mexico
while atlantic surface ridging shifts farther to our east. This will
place us more on the southwest periphery of the low-level ridge
allowing the flow to turn more southeasterly. This will bring in
more low-level moisture along with shower chances. Temperatures
should remain on the warm side.

Marine
Easterly winds of 15-20 knots will continue for the atlantic
waters over the holiday weekend. Gusts may at time reach 25 knots
at times, and small craft operators should exercise caution.

Atlantic seas will average 3-5 ft (possibly higher at times in the
gulf stream), while gulf seas in the 2-4 ft range are expected.

Little to no rain chances are expected through the middle of next
week.

Aviation
Vfr conditions will prevail throughout the forecast period. Winds
will remain out of the east northeast around 15 knots this
afternoon. The winds will slightly diminish later this evening and
into the overnight hours. Winds will increase again to near 15
knots with higher gusts by the middle of Saturday morning.

Beach forecast
A high risk for rip currents will continue for the atlantic beaches
through at least memorial day. An elevated rip current risk will
continue beyond Monday as well given the strong onshore wind
component.

Fire weather
Breezy east winds will prevail through Monday, bringing good to
excellent dispersion each day. No rain is expected. Minimum relative
humidity values may near critical values over the western interior
each afternoon, but 20 ft winds should remain below 15 mph over these
same areas. Fire weather headlines are not currently anticipated
over south florida, due to this wind threshold not being reached,
however caution is advised due to the low relative humidity values
and breezy winds.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
