221 pm edt Mon mar 18 2019

Becoming windy along the coast on Tuesday with rough surf, high
risk of rip currents and possible minor coastal flooding...

Near term Through Tuesday night...

drier air is spreading southward on northerly flow... With surface dew
points falling through the 30s across the area, and 20s across s-ctrl
ga. With clear skies and light winds, temperatures would normally drop
quite a bit. However, satellite imagery is showing a large mass of
cloudiness over the gulf of mexico which will spread NE over forecast
area tonight, keeping temperatures up a bit. Latest consensus guidance
is a bit above current low temperature forecast for tonight... Will
trend forecast up closer to consensus.

On Tuesday, a weak shortwave trough aloft will approach the fl peninsula.

Model guidance shows a large area of rain spreading across central and
southern fl during the day... Some guidance suggests a threat for light
rain in our southeastern counties. Have limited chance pop coverage to the
far southeastern part of our forecast area. Otherwise mostly cloudy skies
expected... With best chance of any sunshine over our northern counties. Some
uncertainty on high temperature forecast... Consensus guidance seems on the
low side without a lot of precipitation... Have gone a few degrees above
consensus given potential for any partial insolation.

Long term Wednesday through Sunday...

weak low pressure will move over offshore waters Wednesday... With scattered
showers over the coastal waters... Expect dry over land with partly cloudy skies.

Weak cold air advection pattern on back side of low will help keep temperatures
a little below normal with high temperatures in the 65-70 range and low
temperatures Thursday morning 40-45 SE ga, 45-50 NE fl.

A shortwave trough will swing over the southeastern states Thursday, but will
not be associated with any precipitation.

High pressure at the surface and aloft will build over the region Friday through
Sunday, leading to a period of dry weather. Latest consensus guidance suggests a
slow warming trend this period, with temperatures getting above normal by Sunday.

Aviation Vfr conditions through tonight and early Tuesday with just mid and
high clouds expected. Lower CIGS to around 3000-5000 ft could occur for ksgj
after 12z Tuesday but for now have scattered deck at 3000 ft and vcsh toward
midday. Winds rest of today northeast to north 10-15 kt... Highest at ksgj.

Winds will relax tonight, then increase again for Tuesday. North-northeast
winds will increase to sustained 15-18kt with higher gusts by 14z-15z. The
higher winds most likely to occur at kssi, kcrg, and ksgj

Marine With high pressure building north of the waters, and low pressure south
of the waters, the pressure gradient across the waters will increase Tue wed,
resulting in stronger winds and higher seas. Will maintain current small craft
advisory. Winds and seas are expected to gradually decrease late Thursday and Friday.

Rip currents: high risk on Tuesday and Wednesday as winds increase and become
more onshore producing rough surf with breakers increasing to near 7 feet.

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.
