Near term [through tonight]
Mid level ridging will hold on tonight despite a cold front and
supporting mid level trough moving through the tennessee valley.

Showers from this afternoon will dissipate this evening with clouds
increasing overnight. Enough moisture in place and associated with
the remnants of cindy may spark some overnight showers across our se
al and SW ga counties towards dawn but the chances are low. Lows
tonight will fall into the lower to middle 70s.

Short term [Saturday through Sunday night]
Mid and upper level ridging over bermuda will gradually weaken as a
shortwave trough swings across the upper mississippi valley and
the great lakes. This trough will sweep up the remnants of cindy
and slowly push a front through the southeast. The timing of the
frontal passage is still uncertain, but consensus shows it
stalling north of our area Saturday night and then pushing
southeastward Sunday night. Wind shear will be very weak with
this system, so widespread severe weather is not expected,
although isolated gusty winds will be possible. Highs will be in
the upper 80s to low 90s on Saturday, mid to upper 80s on Sunday.

Lows will be in the low to mid 70s Saturday night, mid 60s to low
70s as the front begins to pass through Sunday night.

Long term [Monday through Friday]
Low level ridging will build over the southeast through mid-week in
the wake of the frontal passage, keeping pops low through Wednesday.

By Thursday, with the ridge will move to our east, which will
increase southerly flow over us. This increased low level
southerly flow later in the week will be more favorable for
seabreeze thunderstorms. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s and
lows will be mostly in the upper 60s to low 70s.

Aviation [through 18z Saturday]
Isold shra along the seabreeze is moving north through the fl
panhandle into SW ga towards vld. These shra will be tempo and only
last around a half hour. These shra may move close to aby later this
afternoon. Otherwise, thick CU blankets the entire tri-state region
underneath ridging aloft. Shra will dissipate later today with
decreasing clouds this evening. However, stratus is expected to
develop overnight with ifr MVFR expected at all terminals. These
conds will persist through mid morning.

Marine
Winds and waves continue to fall tonight as the pressure gradient
weakens. A frontal passage will increase chances for thunderstorms
this weekend and bring a shift to northerly winds on Sunday night.

Aside from potentially gusty winds during storms, wind speeds should
remain below 15 knots through the period.

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

Hydrology
We received some much needed round of rainfall courtesy of cindy
earlier this week. As a result, rises continue along the
choctawhatchee and pea river basins. There are no more points in
flood stage at this time, though several remain in or will rise to
action stage. Rainfall from a frontal passage this weekend is
expected to remain around an inch or less, which should not cause
widespread flooding, but may mean a slower lowering of elevated
rivers.

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.
