Aviation
Vfr conditions expected throughout the period at all terminals
with the exception of occasional MVFR at pgd until patchy br
burns off over the next hour or so as daytime heating sets
in. Predominant easterly flow with onshore sea breeze flow
reaching immediate coastal terminals during afternoon.

Prev discussion issued 229 am edt Sun may 26 2019
discussion...

the heat continues again today as high pressure ridge centered
across southern georgia and northern florida remains in place. Highs
will once again top out in the mid to upper 90s highest temps
expected across interior sections under mostly clear skies. Lighter
easterly flow will allow for a seabreeze near the coast today
allowing temps to be a bit "cooler" near the coast but still plenty
hot. Drier air aloft will continue through Wednesday keeping the
area under mostly clear skies each day with rain chances almost non-
existent. For those with outdoor plans this holiday weekend be sure
to wear proper clothing, sunscreen and drink plenty of water.

Towards the end of the week, the ridge loosens its grip over the
region, leading to a reintroduction of diurnal pops on Thursday and
even more so on Friday as a more summertime pattern looks to take
shape as we move into june.

Aviation...

vfr is expected at all terminals during the next 24 hours.

Light easterly winds overnight will increase to around 10 knots
after daybreak with winds turning to the west-northwest at the
coastal sites after 19z as the west coast sea breeze develops.

Marine...

high pressure from the atlantic extending west-southwest across the
northern peninsula will maintain a predominant easterly wind flow
across the gulf waters for the next several days. A slightly weaker
easterly flow expected today should allow for a sea breeze to
develop by the afternoon shifting winds to the west and northwest
along the coast during Sunday afternoon with similar conditions
expected into the memorial day holiday.

Fire weather...

strong ridging aloft will maintain elevated mixing heights resulting
in some high dispersions for the next couple of days. A dry air mass
for the next several days will drop minimum relative humidity values
down to near 35 percent... Especially inland... Each afternoon but no
red flag conditions are anticipated.

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.
