Aviation [through 06z Sunday]
Conditions becoming mostly MVFR tonight with areas of patchy fog
bringing the possibility of localized ifr. Conditions will begin
to improve after sunrise becomingVFR by mid to late morning.

Prev discussion [722 pm est]
Near term [through tonight]
Any showers that develop this afternoon across western portions of
the wiregrass region will dwindle during the early evening hours.

Warm and muggy conditions will be common across the region once
again overnight, with temperatures falling into the upper 50s to low
60s for lows. A moistening boundary layer, courtesy of continued low
level southerly flow, dry air at mid-levels and weak winds will
yield patchy fog across much of the tri-state region tonight. The
suwannee river valley will likely see more widespread fog, with
dense fog not out of the question late tonight.

Short term [Saturday through Sunday night]
Deep layer ridging over the southeast will begin breaking down on
Saturday as a trough moves through the central conus. Saturday
will likely remain dry as the front and preceding low-level
ascent remains a bit west of the tri-state region. Highs will
remain in the lower to middle 80s. Saturday night through Sunday
night rain chances will increase with the approach of the
aforementioned frontal system. Expect the best rain chances to be
along and northwest of a line from fitzgerald, ga through
apalachicola, fl. At this time, severe weather is not expected to
reach this far east as the most favorable shear and instability
don't quite line up.

Long term [Monday through Friday]
The previously mentioned front will clear the region on Monday,
though some rain will be possible behind the front as another
shortwave moves through the tennessee valley. Rain should come to
an end by Tuesday, with a more zonal flow regime dominating aloft
through mid-week. Another frontal system will approach towards the
end of the week bringing rain chances once again on Friday. Expect
highs in the upper 70s to low 80s, with only one night of cooler
temps behind the front before lows creep back into the 60s.

Marine
Southeasterly winds tonight will become southerly this weekend with
prevailing seas of 2 to 3 feet or less at least through the middle
of next week.

Fire weather
Hazardous fire weather conditions not expected through much of the
next week as rhs will remain above critical thresholds. Chances for
wetting rains will increase Sunday and Monday across the region
before drier conditions resume Tuesday. Dispersions will be
marginally high across portions of the big bend on Friday, however,
confidence is low in values exceeding 75 at this time.

Hydrology
Rainfall totals over the next week are forecast to vary across the
region, with little to no rain across the southeast big bend and
up to an inch across southeast alabama. Widespread heavy rain is
not expected and flooding is not a concern at this point.

Spotter information statement
Spotter activation is not requested. However, spotters are always
encouraged to safely report significant weather conditions when they
occur by calling the office or tweeting us @nwstallahassee.

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.
