Update
No significant changes to the previous forecast below appear
necessary.

Aviation
[through 00z Sunday]VFR conditions are expected to prevail
through the period with clear skies and southwest winds generally
around 10 knots or less.

Prev discussion [327 pm edt]
Near term [through tonight]
Surface high pressure and mid-level quasi-zonal flow remain in place
across the region this afternoon. This, along with a dry airmass in
place will yield continued clear and quiet weather through the end
of the period. Expect mid-level ridging to begin increasing from
the west by the end of the period. Overnight lows will drop into
the upper 50s and lower 60s region wide.

Short term [Saturday through Sunday night]
High pressure will dominate over the weekend with an upper level
ridge strengthening across the CWA as the center of the ridge
slides across the area on Sunday. Pw values will be around 1 inch
on Saturday, but moisture will increase for Sunday with pw values
increasing to 1.25 inches - more normal for this time of year. The
forecast is dry through the weekend, however with increasing
moisture for Sunday, do expected increase cloud coverage.

Highs will reach into the lower 90s with 80s along the coast with
lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s tomorrow morning increasing to
the upper 60s to lower 70s with the increasing cloud coverage for
Sunday morning.

Long term [Monday through Friday]
A cold front will be situated across the southeast on Monday with
the front stalling across the northern portion of the CWA or just
north of the cwa. This combined with a few weak upper level
disturbances will allow for the chance of showers and
thunderstorms each day throughout the week. There is enough
instability and deep layer shear at the beginning of the week that
a few strong to severe storms cannot be ruled out. With Monday
being a holiday, it is a good reminder for anyone with outdoor
plans to have a way to keep updated on the weather.

Marine
South to southwest winds will persist through much of the weekend.

Winds will increase to 10 to 15 knots for Monday with an
approaching front, however the boundary never pushes through the
area. After a dry weekend, isolated showers and thunderstorms will
be possible next week.

Fire weather
Red flag conditions are not expected for the next several days. An
afternoon sea breeze will develop during the heat of the day each
afternoon in florida, which will cause a temporary increase in south
to southwest winds near the coast and potentially have a brief
impact on any florida fires during the mid to late afternoon
hours.

Hydrology
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible starting
Monday and continuing through next week. Widespread rainfall
amounts will be limited though, thus there are no flooding
concerns at this time.

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.
