Update
Made little changes to the current forecast package as things look
on track. Extensive CU field developing across southeast georgia
this morning, with northeast florida a little slower in developing
due to some lingering higher clouds. Breezy day expected across
the area, with gusts approaching 30 mph along and east of i-95.

There is a very slight chance for isolated showers to develop this
afternoon, though any that do develop will be short-lived, quick
moving and definitely not drought busters. High temperatures
inland will be near 90, and cooler at the beaches.

Aviation
Cumulus field developing this morning. Bases are starting out
largely in the MVFR range, and will slowly lift to around 030-050
feet as we get into the afternoon hours. Southeast winds will be
breezy, with gusts to 20-25kts expected for most terminals. A few
of the taller cumulus clouds may spit out a few isolated showers,
but most locations will remain dry today.

Marine
Solid scec conditions today as southeast winds remain just below
20 knots and waves in the offshore waters approaching 6 feet. Small
craft advisory conditions will kick in Monday afternoon and then
continue Monday night. A weak cold front will move through the
area late Monday night into Tuesday morning with winds quickly
veering to the north and decreasing behind the front as high
pressure moves in.

Winds/seas will begin to increase again on Thursday as a stronger
frontal system approaches the area.

Rip currents: moderate risk today due to increased onshore flow
moderate risk is expected again on Monday.

Fire weather Dispersions will remain high again today due to
breezy southeast winds, with gusts near 30 mph along the coast.

Smoke from the west mims wildfire will drift to the northwest
across southeast georgia today. Minimum rh values will remain
above 40 percent with hot and humid conditions continuing. Winds
will become south to southwest with a chance of showers and
thunderstorms Monday afternoon and night ahead of an approaching
cold front. Will need to be on the ALERT for cloud to ground
lightning strikes on Monday with relatively light precipitation
from the frontal passage.

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.
