Near term [through today]
The tutt low currently centered over the eastern gulf of mexico will
continue to move westward through the period, with moisture
gradually advecting back into the region on the eastern periphery.

The 00z raobs from tae and jax continue to suggest a tight moisture
gradient between the two site, with drier air prevailing from
tallahassee westward. Though moistening is expected today, shower
and thunderstorm chances will remain more prevalent across the
eastern third of the forecast area. Expect showers and storms to
develop along the east coast sea breeze early this afternoon and
move eastward into the area by late afternoon early evening.

Afternoon high temperatures will likely soar into the mid to upper
90s, barring any surprise cloud cover during the day. Heat indicies

Short term [tonight through Tuesday]
Tutt low will continue to move westward towards the upper texas
coast by late Tuesday. East to west mid level ridging will build
across the southeast us into the mid south. Deep east to southeast
flow will advect tropical moisture into the southeast and
overspreading the region this period. Column moisture and pwats
will increase leading to near normal (40-50%) chances for
rainfall for mid august especially in the afternoon and early
evening hours. High temperatures will be more towards the low 90s
with anticipated cloud cover and rainfall Monday Tuesday.

Long term [Tuesday night through Sunday]
Ridging shifts towards the gulf coast in response to a deepening
and digging east us trough. This trough will support a front that
will make a run at the southeast towards the end of the work week
and into next weekend. Increasing rain chances is expected with
favorable moisture levels and mid upper level support. 50-60%
chance for rainfall is expected each afternoon Thursday through
Sunday. Highs will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

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.
