the surface high pressure is over the region with westerly or
southwesterly flow in the lower levels, perhaps increasing low level
moisture slightly. Skies will be partly cloudy and a few isolated
showers are possible in the afternoon. Temperatures will be very hot
again today in the mid to upper 90s away from the immediate coast.

Heat indices will be 100 to 105 this afternoon. A heat advisory
remains in effect today for the counties hardest hit by hurricane
michael due to the vulnerability there.

Short term [tonight through Wednesday]
In the upper levels a strong ridge will be over the region. At the
surface high pressure will remain over the southeast. Low level
moisture will begin to increase slightly as southerly flow returns.

Pops will remain low (around 20 percent or below) but a few isolated
showers or thunderstorms will be possible tomorrow and Wednesday
afternoons. Skies will be mostly clear at night and partly cloudy in
the daytime. Temperatures will be very hot with afternoon highs in
the mid to upper 90s away from the immediate coast. The heat index
will be around 100.

Long term [Wednesday night through Monday]
In the upper levels the ridge will weaken significantly by late this
week. A weak troughing pattern is possible next weekend. At the
surface high pressure will remain in place with southerly flow in
the low levels. By Thursday night and into Friday a weak cold front
will approach the region bringing a chance for showers and
thunderstorms. The best chance for rain will be on Friday with pops
around 20 to 40 percent. Over the weekend isolated showers and
thunderstorms are possible with pops around 20 to 30 percent. Highs

Marine
High pressure remains over the region. Light to moderate westerly
winds are expected today. Beginning Wednesday southerly winds will
be light to moderate. The best chance for rain will be on Friday as
a weak cold front moves through.

Fire weather
A dry air mass is in place with relative humidity values mostly
between 30 to 35 percent across inland areas at least through
Tuesday. Fuels are also dry in most locations. Red flag criteria
will not be met since winds will be light and relative humidity
values are not quite low enough.

Hydrology
River levels are low due to the dry spell. The next good chance for
widespread rain will be on Friday.

Spotter information statement
Spotter activation is not requested. However, spotters are always
encouraged to safely report significant weather conditions when they

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
