short term (tonight-Friday)...

the upper trough will continue to swing through the state
tonight, with a secondary through stalling across north fl,
keeping W SW flow in place across the local area through the
period. At the surface, high pressure will continue to
build into the region with the clouds clearing out of the
area and cooler and drier air moving in. Breezy N NW winds
will turn to the N NE Friday and diminish a bit as the high
center moves NE into the deep south. Lows tonight expected
to fall into the mid 30s to lower 40s north, mid 40s inland
to mid 50s coastal central, and lower to mid 50s south.

Long term (Friday night-Thursday)...

surface ridging will continue across the area through the
weekend as conditions moderate with E NE winds in place, and
aloft generally W SW flow remains across the area. A weak
front then moves into the area Monday night Tuesday, with
upper energy lingering across the area through the end of
the period. A few showers possible with this, but most areas
are expected to remain dry. Some drier air moves in behind
the front as high pressure builds back in from the north,
but temps expected to remain about the same through the end
of the period. Highs will linger in the 70s to around 80
through the period, with lows warming from the 40s to lower
50s Friday night to in the 50s to lower 60s Saturday night
through the rest of the period.

evening, then scec conditions continue through Friday
morning as winds turn more to the north. High pressure
remains across the waters through early Monday, with winds
continuing to lighten and turning to the E NE as the high

the area Monday night Tuesday, with winds just backing a bit
to the N ne. Ridging returns thereafter.

humidity falling below 35 percent. Winds will be light and
erc values are low, so no headlines expected. Humidity will

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
