Near term [through today]
The remnants of cindy will be passing well to the west and north of
the area today. Upper level ridging will build in from the east for
today, providing partly cloudy skies by this afternoon with only
isolated to scattered convection expected across the area (20-30%
pops). High temperatures are expected to reach the lower 90s across
most of the area, and with muggy dewpoints in the low to mid 70s
still in place across the area, heat index values are expected to
peak near 100 degrees this afternoon.

Short term [tonight through Sunday]
The remnants of cindy will get caught up in the trough and a band
of moisture will stretch across the southeast. The greatest area
of moisture will be just to our north, so the highest pops will be
in the northern half of the cwa. Pops 40-60% will be limited to sw
ga and SE al on Saturday and coverage will be more widespread on
Sunday. Highs will be in the upper 80s and low 90s with lows in
the low 70s.

Long term [Sunday night through Friday]
There are still some differences in the models with the
approaching front. The GFS is the drier solution and has the
front arriving Monday while the ECMWF is a bit slower. The ecmwf
is a much wetter solution with moisture sticking around for
several days. Pops will be 20-40% each day. Highs will be in the
upper 80s with lows in the upper 60s.

Aviation [through 06z Saturday] mainly MVFR ceilings are
expected to spread inland from the coast through the early morning
hours with patchy ifr conditions possible. By mid-morning, most
terminals are expected to be low endVFR under a scattered to
broken cloud deck.

Marine
Conditions will continue to improve over the next few days. By
Saturday winds will decrease to around 10 knots with seas around 2
feet.

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

Hydrology
Rainfall associated with TS cindy has come to an end with generally
4 to 6 inches of rain across portions of SE alabama and the florida
panhandle with lesser values further east into south central georgia
and the florida big bend.

Some of the faster responding rivers in the panhandle, like the
shoal river are cresting this afternoon just below flood stage.

Modest rises continue in the pea chochtawhatchee basin in SE alabama
and expect rises to just below flood stage further down the basin
into the florida panhandle into early next week as water from
southern alabama arrives.

In south georgia and the florida big bend, only small rises have
occurred and are continuing with nearly all locations remaining
below flood stage. Only exception is the sopchoppy river where
heavier rains fell in the coastal basin of this river. The river
crested about 2 feet below flood stage Thursday evening.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
