wx map shows weak high pressure over the southeast u.S. With light
south to southeast flow over the region. Further inland, patchy
fog noted across our region once again. Might see intermittent
patchy dense fog towards daybreak, but not expecting widespread
dense fog at this time.

With above normal temperatures and dewpoints, summer continues
for our region. Scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms is
expected with a weak upper level trough approaching from the west
interacting with the seabreeze this afternoon. Chances ranging
from 30-40%.

Expect slightly less chances of showers and thunderstorms for
Thursday and Friday time frame. Increased moisture from the
eastern gulf coupled with an deepening upper level low over the
southeast u.S. To bring increased chances of showers and
thunderstorms for the weekend into next Monday. Temperatures
expected to stay slightly above normal through the period.

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.
