Discussion
Today-tonight... Not much change in the weather pattern with strong
ridge aloft remaining over the southeast u.S. Keeping very warm and
dry conditions in place. High pressure over the west atlantic at the
surface does nudge slightly southward today. However, ridge axis
remains just to the north of central florida, with a moderate low
level onshore flow (10-15 kts at 925mb) persisting across the area.

This will continue to focus warmest temperatures inland with highs
ranging from the mid 80s along the coast to upper 80s low 90s across
the interior. Clear to mostly clear skies generally expected through
tonight, with overnight lows in the upper 60s to low 70s over much
of the region.

Memorial day weekend (sat-mon)... Large mid level anticyclone will
continue to extend from the gomex across the SE CONUS and fl,
keeping conditions quite warm and dry. Subtle change occurs at the
surface as northerly mid level flow over the western atlantic (on
the eastern flank of the high center) will drive a weak surface high
centered along 70w southward. This will cause the ridge axis to sag
south across central fl, with low level winds veering from light
easterly Sat to light s-sw mon. This will slightly delay the inland
progression of the ecsb thereby allowing interior MAX temps to warm
from the lower 90s closer to 95f, while the coastal counties warm
from m-u80s to u80s-90f. Mins will remain a couple degrees either
side of 70f, with the "cooler" readings over rural inland areas.

Tue-fri... A pattern change may be in the offing as the SE conus
ridge keeping fl dry and warm hot is progged to retrograde and
flatten as short wave energy moves across the top of it and through
the SE conus. The atlantic surface ridge axis position over central
fl doesn't look to change appreciably. Should this come to fruition
then ecfl will have at least a small chance for diurnal convection
toward the end of next week as falling heights allow for easing of
the drying and subsidence aloft. As such have introduced some small
(20-30) diurnal pops for thu-fri. Blended model guidance continues
to look too high for MAX temps u90s across creeping into the north
interior through the period. The forecast continues to cap maxes
in the 93-95f range inland, while remaining in the u80s to around
90f closer to the coast. Mins in the u60s to l70s.

Aviation Vfr conditions expected over the next 24 hours.

Marine Today-tonight... Ridge axis of high pressure over the west
atlantic remains just north of the waters, with easterly winds
around 10-15 knots, becoming S SE 5-10 knots north of the CAPE into
tonight. Seas range from 3-5 feet today falling to 2-4 feet tonight.

Saturday-Tuesday... Benign conditions expected as light low level
easterlies to start the holiday weekend veer to s-sw early next
week. Seas 2-3ft through this weekend, with 3-4ft seas developing
offshore Monday night Tuesday as southerly winds increase a bit.

Fire weather With the drying trend continuing, all fuel types
will continue to become more receptive daily for fire growth with
moderate to high afternoon probability of ignition. Mentionable rain
chances remain out of the forecast well into next week.

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.
