Aviation
Widespread stratus deck producing MVFR ceilings across many
terminals with southern TAF sites receiving occasional
sprinkles through mid morning.VFR conditions return by 16z
with NW winds increasing this afternoon to around 10-15
knots with higher gusts possible.

Prev discussion issued 253 am est Mon dec 10 2018
short term (today - Tuesday)...

extensive cloud deck extends from the western gulf eastward
across florida and northeast up the eastern seaboard and
into the atlantic. These clouds will be with us through much
of the day, and some areas may see some sprinkles light
showers from time to time. The storm system that moved
across the northern gulf coast is now moving eastward out to
sea off the carolina coast. A deep upper-level trough will
remain over the gulf through tonight, then begin to shift
into the atlantic later Tuesday. The combination of cyclonic
flow aloft and cold air advection over the relatively warm
gulf waters will keep plenty of clouds in place through
tonight, especially along the coast. Some clearing should
take place tonight over the interior.

Most areas should see plenty of sunshine on Tuesday as the
upper trough departs and surface high pressure builds in
from the west.

Much colder air will be filtering in today, and
temperatures aren't going to climb very much. Look for highs
to only reach the middle 50s far north, but warm into the
middle to upper 60s over central and southern areas.

Cold air will continue to pour in Monday night with upper
30s expected for the nature coast by Tuesday morning.

Elsewhere it should bottom out in the mid 40s, except lower
50s near the coast.

It will remain cool on Tuesday despite the increase in
sunshine. High swill generally stay between 60 and 65
degrees.

Long term (Tuesday night - Sunday)...

the surface high will move slowly eastward into the
southeastern states Tuesday night providing good conditions
for radiational cooling with light winds and clear skies.

The nature coast could flirt with freezing temperatures, and
patchy frost is likely. Central and southern areas will
fall into the upper 30s to mid 40s.

The high center will move into the atlantic Wednesday and
Thursday resulting in a gradual warming trend. Moisture will
return from south to north on Thursday with some showers
possible. The next significant system to affect our weather
will be taking shape over the northwest gulf coast on
Thursday, bringing more showers and thunderstorms to the
region Friday and Friday night. Models differ on timing, but
agree that this could be a potent system similar to what we
saw this past weekend. Cooler air will move in behind the
system for the weekend.

Aviation...

some light rain drizzle will impact terminals for a few
hours with MVFR ceilings and visibilities. Expect showers to
come to an end with ceilings lifting above 3000 feet by 15z.

Marine...

gusty west to northwest winds will create hazardous
conditions for small craft on the gulf waters today. Winds
will gradually subside this afternoon, but will likely
remain elevated to some extent through Tuesday. High
pressure will provide light winds on Wednesday, then winds
will begin to increase from the southeast on Thursday ahead
of the next system. Hazardous winds and seas are likely to
return to our waters by Friday and may continue into at
least part of the weekend.

Fire weather...

cooler and drier air is moving into the region today and
will be with us through Wednesday. Relative humidities are
expected to remain above critical levels.

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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
