Short term (rest of today - Saturday)
Aloft early this afternoon a ridge stretched from mexico to
the upper great lakes while a low on the new england coast
troughed down the eastern seaboard to the ga fl line. At the
surface a frontal boundary arced from the upper midwest
down through the southern plains then back up through the
central rockies to the great basin. High pressure centered
in the northeast gulf of mexico sprawled across the
remainder of the gulf waters and up into the deep south. An
old frontal boundary south of the florida keys extended
across the northern bahamas to the open atlantic.

Going into the weekend - the western upper ridge shifts eastward...

from the central gulf of mexico to the lower great lakes... With a
warm stable and dry west to northwest flow above the area. Model
pwat values range from about 0.5 inches to just under 1.5 inches...

with the highest amounts confined to the far south. The
gulf surface high continues and merges with an atlantic
ridges that builds westward sat... Keeping light flow level
flow in place and dominated by afternoon sea breezes.

The drier air will allow one more coolish night with temperatures
near to just below normal. Clear to mostly clear skies Sat along the
ridge aloft will permits the highs to be around or above normal.

But coastal locations a bit lower than inland due to the sea breeze.

Long term (Saturday night - Friday)
Upper level ridging over the eastern gulf and surface high pressure
from the western atlantic extending west into the eastern gulf at
the start of the period will provide pleasant dry weather across the
entire forecast area through the remainder of the weekend and into
memorial day with mainly clear skies, very warm temperatures, and a
light westerly wind flow. Overnight low temperatures will range from
the upper 60s over inland locations, to the lower 70s along the
coast, while daytime highs on Sunday and Monday will climb into the
upper 80s to lower 90s along the coast, and mid to upper 90s inland.

During late Monday and continuing through Friday the upper level
ridge will shift east into the atlantic and will become aligned
southwest to northeast from the southern florida peninsula into the
western atlantic, as the surface high sets up from the western
atlantic west across the south central peninsula through Tuesday,
before drifting north to be across the north-central peninsula
Wednesday through Friday with a light southeast wind flow developing.

Similar to yesterday models show a slow increase in moisture through
the period which will lead to increasing chances (pops 20 to 30
percent on Tuesday, then 30-50 percent Wednesday through Friday) for
diurnal sea breeze driven showers and thunderstorms across the
region each day during the afternoon and early evening hours with
the highest rain chances expected to be over inland sections each
afternoon as the east and west coast sea breeze boundaries move
inland.

Temperatures will run above normal through the period with overnight
lows generally in the lower to mid 70s, with daytime highs climbing
into the upper 80s to around 90 along

Aviation
26 18z-27 18z.VFR. Skc... Although southern terminals may see a few
cu sc in the afternoon. Light variable NE winds... Except shifting to
westerly at modest speeds during the afternoon.

Marine
Relaxed high pressure continues across the waters through midweek
with light winds and an onshore shift during afternoon sea breezes.

A moistening airmass will introduce some showers and thunderstorms
later in the period... Resulting in briefly higher winds and seas.

Fire weather
High pressure sprawls across the state for the next few days. This
keeps dry air in place through Sat with several counties seeing long
durations of low rh. However currently only polk county has
a critically high erc values and they have fire weather watch
in place for sat. A slow increase in humidity begins with no
low rh concerns expected.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
