Near term (today and tonight)
Main focus this morning is on any visibility restrictions from
smoke near i-10 and also the potential for some fog development
along and west of i-75 in north central florida. A few obs closer
to the gulf coast have come in with occasional fog, so what is
out there at the moment appears shallow and localized as current
satellite imagery showing only some patchy mid level clouds across
southeast georgia. Will continue to monitor satellite trends for
any expansion in coverage, and have left the areas of smoke close
to the fire in baker county and patchy fog west of i-75 for now.

Upper level low and developing surface low across arkansas and
northern mississippi remain on track to move east through the day
today. Surface winds will increase out of the southwest in
response, other than right along the coast where the atlantic
seabreeze should kick in but remain pinned to the coast. Overall a
pleasant day with highs in the low to mid 80s are expected. By
late afternoon, the surface low will approach the altamaha river
basin and bring a chance for scattered showers to that region.

There could be a few rumbles of thunder mixed in, however sbcape
still looks feeble at around 500 j kg at most through the
overnight hours. Trailing cold front behind the system will move
southward slowly through the area, and should continue to dry out
as it does. Have carried only slight chance pops for some
isolated showers after sunset through sunrise Friday morning that
should be confined right along and near the boundary.

Short term (Friday through Sunday night)
Slow moving cold front is expected to be over southeastern counties
Friday, with a few showers there as a result. A weak trough will
move southeast across area Saturday with a stronger one Saturday
night. Moisture is limited with these troughs so not much more than
clouds bands are anticipated. High pressure will then build to the
northwest Sunday and to the north Sunday night.

Temperatures will trend near to slightly below normal this
period.

Long term (Monday through Wednesday)
High pressure ridge will settle just to the north on Monday, then
to the northeast Tuesday, and to the east on Wednesday. Dry
weather is expected this period.

Temperatures are expected to trend a little below normal this
period, primarily due to the onshore flow. So, inland locations will
have best chance for near to above normal readings.

Aviation
CurrentlyVFR across southeast georgia and northeast florida.

Medium confidence that a period of at least MVFR
ceilings visibility will be possible along and west of i-75 near
sunrise. Beyond that,VFR conditions will continue through the
day, with southwest winds at 8 to 12 knots except right along the
atlantic coast where the seabreeze will develop this afternoon and
winds will become southeasterly.

Marine
West to southwest offshore flow will continue the next few days.

Winds will increase to scec levels in the offshore waters late
tonight and into Friday morning as a front moves through. Winds
remain offshore until Sunday when strong high pressure moves into
the mid-atlantic states. Northeast winds will stay through mid-
week, and both seas and winds are expected to remain below even
scec levels at this time.

Rip currents: moderate risk of rip currents today.

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.
