Update
Sfc high pressure ridge remains along the SE u.S. Coastline and sw
into NE fl/se ga while aloft a weakening shortwave over the fl
panhandle will track across the region with enough diurnal heating
and moisture (pwats just below an inch) to help trigger scattered
showers and a few isolated storms across inland SE ga and the
suwannee valley of inland north florida. MAX temps will reach into
the lower 80s inland while an atlc coast sea breeze will develop
and push well inland and keep the atlc coast in the 70s for max
temps. Any shower activity over inland areas this evening will
quickly fade after sunset and leaving fair skies and mild
overnight lows in the upper 50s inland and lower 60s along the
coast. Light/near calm winds will allow for patchy fog formation
towards morning with some localized dense fog possible.

Aviation
Vfr conds today with sct/bkn CU field developing this afternoon
with bases generally in the 3500-5000 ft range. Rain chances at
taf sites generally 20% or less so will continue to leave out of
taf forecast for now. Low chances for patchy MVFR fog late tonight
mainly at the inland TAF sites.

Marine
East to southeast flow around 10 knots will continue through
Monday with seas 3-5ft nearshore and 4-6 ft offshore and scec
headlines will remain in place.

Rip currents: moderate risk in the weak onshore with long period
swells around 9 seconds impacting the coast. Breaker reports at
the coast in the 3-4 ft range.

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.
