107 am edt Sat aug 19 2017

Aviation [through 06z Sunday]
MVFR conditions expected through the period, with an exception of
a brief period of light fog at tlh and MVFR CIGS and vsby at vld
prior to sunrise. Otherwise, partly cloudy skies and light winds
expected, with the chance for iso to sct tsra in and around the
valdosta area this afternoon.

Prev discussion [831 pm edt]
Near term [through tonight]
At 00z, a surface trough can be analyze from near apalachicola, fl
northeastward to fitzgerald, ga. This surface feature is enhanced
by the northwestern quadrant of a tropical upper-tropospheric
trough (tutt). A loop of IR satellite imagery shows enhanced
convection this afternoon and evening firing up right along the
overlap of these boundaries, as well as along with our north fl
seabreeze boundary. Adjusted pops up to a slight chance (20%)
across parts of ga this evening with convection along this surface
trough ul tough overlap. As we continue to lose solar radiation
however, these storms are expected to diminish over the next hour
or two. Overnight, temperatures will fall into the 70s.

Short term [Saturday through Sunday night]
Overall, the area will be in a mid upper col region with very weak
deep layer flow over the next few days. At lower levels, general
northwesterly flow is on tap, with a relatively dry airmass in
place (especially on Saturday). Northwest flow is generally dry
for the northwestern half of the area, so will have low pop for
that region. Best rain chances will be south of i-10 and over the
eastern big bend. Very warm conditions will continue with highs in
the mid 90s on Saturday.

By Sunday, the low-level flow will shift around to the east, with
some moistening of the deep layer. Therefore, may see a bit more
coverage of afternoon showers and storms.

Long term [Monday through Friday]
A weak tropical wave is forecast to move across the region on
Monday, which will increase cloud cover and rain chances (which
could dampen eclipse viewing). Through the remainder of the week,
typical summertime conditions will persist with scattered
afternoon and evening thunderstorms each day.

Marine
Outside of scattered showers and thunderstorms, winds and seas
will remain rather low through the forecast period.

Fire weather
Red flag conditions are not expected over the next week.

Hydrology
Area rivers are below "action stage" and will remain so through
this weekend. Organized heavy rain is unlikely.

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.
