A series of waves on the south side of the ridge will move through the area producing scattered showers and storms through mid week. Rain chances increase on Wednesday and Thursday with numerous showers and storms expected.

215 pm edt Sun aug 20 2017

Short term (tonight - Monday)
In the mid upper levels, an upper level low over the eastern gulf of
mexico will continue moving westward toward texas through the
tonight and into next week. Mid-level ridging near bermuda extends
west-southwest over eastern florida. On the surface, a weak tropical
wave moves across southern florida tonight. Pwat values will
increase tonight to over 2 inches which will help produce a good
chance of rain and storms this evening. On Monday, the wave moves
into the eastern gulf as subtropical high pressure near bermuda
ridges west-southwest over florida. This will produce a predominant
easterly wind flow over the florida peninsula. A decrease in
moisture is expected with pwat values dropping to below 2 inches on
Monday which in turn will cause a decrease in rain chances.

Temperatures will remain around seasonal averages with daytime highs
in the low 90's and overnight lows in the mid to upper 70's.

Long term (Monday night - Sunday)
Another inverted trough (tropical wave) will be approaching from the
southeast at the start of the period. This feature is forecast to
move northwest across the south-central peninsula during the day on
Tuesday bringing with it increasing rain chances across the southern
third of the forecast area with scattered showers and thunderstorms
(pops 30 to 50 percent range) expected, while further to the north
lingering dry air will likely keep shower and storm coverage in the
isolated range (pops 20 percent) across the nature coast.

During Wednesday and Thursday deep layered moisture (pw's 2+ inches)
in the wake of the trough combined with the sea breeze circulations
will support elevated rain chances (pops in the 40 to 70 percent
range) across the entire forecast area with scattered to numerous
showers and thunderstorms expected daily, with the high moisture
content combined with slow moving storms favoring locally heavy
rainfall rates and amounts in some locations.

On Friday and Saturday the surface ridge axis will sink south as an
upper level trough and attendant cold front drops south toward the
florida georgia border. With ample moisture (pw's 2+ inches)
remaining in place along with the sea breeze, troughing aloft, and a
series of weak low pressure areas moving northeast along the stalled
front will support high coverage of showers and thunderstorms (pops
60 to 70 percent range) continuing across the forecast area with
some locally heavy rainfall possible each day. During Sunday the
upper level trough axis will shift east into the atlantic as upper
level ridging noses in from the northwest as the surface ridge axis
lifts back to the north some with scattered to numerous diurnal sea
breeze driven showers and storms expected during the afternoon.

Daytime temperatures will run above normal through Wednesday, before
returning to near normal Thursday through Sunday as clouds and rain
chances increase across the area. Overnight lows will remain above
normal through the period with lows in mid 70s inland areas, and
upper 70s to around 80 along the coast.

Aviation
Vfr conditions can be expected through most of the afternoon. Some
brief MVFR ifr conditions will be possible this afternoon with
passing storms between 18z-03z. Will keep overallVFR conditions in
tafs for now and cover with vcts and tempo groups later in the day
based on radar coverage. No other aviation impacts expected.

Marine
A weak tropical wave will move over southern florida and into the
eastern gulf of mexico later this evening into Monday. High pressure
near bermuda ridges west over the area through the period. A series
of waves on the south side of the ridge will move through the area
producing scattered showers and storms through mid week. Rain
chances increase on Wednesday and Thursday with numerous showers
and storms expected. With high pressure to our north, a predominant
easterly wind flow can be expected, but remaining 15 knots or less.

So, outside of increased winds and seas as well as dangerous
lightning in the vicinity of storms, no other marine impacts are
expected.

Fire weather
Abundant moisture combined with daily rain chances will keep
humidity levels above critical levels through early next week with
no fire weather issues expected.

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.
