Near term (through Tuesday night)...

high pressure, over the upper midwest will continue to ridge over
the area with light winds and suppressed low cloudiness. With
radiational cooling tonight will see some brief ground fog in
favored locations but shouldn't be widespread or long in duration.

Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy today with mainly cirrus
over the region. High temperatures will range from the lower 60s
in georgia to the mid to upper 60s over florida.

The high will shift to the north carolina coast overnight with a
light easterly flow slightly moderating temperatures. Low
temperatures will be in the lower 40s near hazlehurst to the upper
40s along the coast on Wednesday morning.

Short term Wednesday through Thursday
Prevailing flow will shift to out of the south on Wednesday as a
southern stream disturbance begins to move over florida and
southern georgia, resulting in an influx of moisture from the gulf
of mexico. Showers and storms will move across the region on
Thursday ahead of an encroaching cold front, resulting in
potential rainfall amounts of up to 2 to 2.5 inches, with the
heaviest amounts occurring in the western florida counties. High
temperatures will be in the upper 60s and low 70s, with overnight
low temperatures ranging from the 40s into the 50s with the warmer
temperatures being associated with the passage of the warm front.

Long term Friday through Monday
Skies will start to clear on Friday as high pressure and drier air
moves in from the west. Showers and clouds are expected to clear
up by the weekend as high pressure continues to develop over
southeast georgia and northeast florida. High temperatures during
this span are expected to range between the 50s and 60s, with
overnight low temperatures dropping into the 30s and 40s.

Aviation
Light ground fog will be in and out of the fields overnight with
very brief duration and visibility between 2 and 4 sm in most
cases. Otherwise just some broken cirrus over florida and
scattered over georgia.

Marine
High pressure continues to build over area waters for the next
few days with the next low pressure system expected to develop
Wednesday into Thursday. Advisory conditions are expected during
the second half of the week.

Rip currents: low risk

Hydrology
River flooding issues will continue for southeast georgia and
northeast florida the remainder of the week.

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.
