Near term through tonight ...

high pressure ridge will sink south of the region today. The ridge
will sink further south tonight as a cold front approaches from
the north. As winds become west to southwest today, a milder day
is expected with continued sunny skies. Clouds will begin to
return tonight ahead of the approaching front with lows expected
to be 10 to 15 degrees warmer than this morning.

Short term Tuesday through Wednesday night
An area of low pressure will move across the great lakes and into
the northeast on Tuesday, and a dry cold front will push through
the region through the day. Temperatures will be a few degrees
above average across northeast florida as winds become westerly
and breezy ahead of the front. Highs across southeast georgia will
be cooler as the front pushes through during the morning hours,
with cold air advection expected in the afternoon. An inland
advection freeze is expected again Tuesday night, with wind chills
in the 20s. Surface high pressure will then build eastward from
the northwestern gulf to the florida peninsula through the day on
Wednesday. Highs will be below normal on Wednesday, with
temperatures in the 50s. High pressure will build over central
florida Wednesday night, and a light southwesterly flow is
forecast to develop. Overnight lows are forecast to be a little
warmer, with temperatures in the low to mid 30s inland and the low
40s along the coast.

Long term Thursday through Sunday
Southwest winds are expected on Thursday as high pressure shifts
into the western atlantic. Another trough of low pressure will dig
southward across the plains. A weak trough of low pressure is
forecast to move along the northern gulf coast Thursday night, and
then across the region on Friday. Scattered showers are forecast
to move into the region on Friday, with another cold front pushing
through the area in the afternoon. Surface high pressure is then
forecast to build across the region on Saturday, and then shift
east on Sunday ahead of the next upper trough. Temperatures are
forecast to be near normal Friday through the weekend.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
