251 am edt Sun may 26 2019

Near term [through today]
Conditions will be similar to yesterday with strong upper ridging
and near record high 500 mb heights for this time of year
continuing. This will result in near record high temperatures again
in the upper 90s across inland areas with lower 90s along the
immediate coast. Dry weather will continue with the strong upper
ridging acting to suppress any afternoon convection.

Short term [tonight through Tuesday]
In the upper levels a strong ridge will be over the region. At the
surface weak high pressure will remain over the southeast. Low level
moisture will begin to increase slightly as southerly flow returns.

Pops will remain low but a couple of stray showers are not
completely out of the question tomorrow and Tuesday afternoons.

Skies will be mostly sunny clear. Temperatures will be very hot with
afternoon highs in the mid to upper 90s away from the immediate
coast. The heat index will be around 100.

Long term [Tuesday night through Sunday]
In the upper levels the ridge will weaken significantly by late this
week. A weak troughing pattern is likely next weekend. At the
surface weak high pressure will remain in place with southerly flow
in the low levels. By Thursday night and into Friday a weak cold
front may approach the region bringing a chance for showers and
thunderstorms. Highs will be in the 90s. Lows will be in the lower
to mid 70s.

Aviation
[through 06z Monday]
vfr conditions and light winds will prevail through the period.

Marine
River levels are low due to the dry spell. The next good chance for
widespread rain will be on Friday.

Fire weather
A very dry air mass is in place with relative humidity values mostly
between 30 to 35 percent across inland areas through the early week.

Fuels are also dry in most locations. Red flag criteria will not be
met since winds will be light and relative humidity values are not
quite low enough.

Hydrology
High pressure remains over the region. Light southerly winds will
increase slightly late this week. Rain chances are low this week.

Spotter information statement
Spotter activation is not requested. However, spotters are always
encouraged to safely report significant weather conditions when they
occur by calling the office or tweeting us @nwstallahassee.

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.
