731 pm edt Mon sep 25 2017

Aviation [through 00z Wednesday]
Showers have dissipated across the florida panhandle. Overnight,
patchy MVFR conditions are possible at vld from 08z-13z. However,
all other sites will beVFR through the period.

Prev discussion [301 pm edt]
Near term [through tonight]
Weak surface ridging to our north and a weak upper level low aloft
of the southeast will make for a fairly quiet afternoon and evening.

Scattered storms offshore will dissipate this evening and any
convection over land will be isolated. Overnight, temperatures will
dip into the mid 60s to around 70.

Short term [Tuesday through Wednesday night]
An upper level low over the eastern gulf Tuesday will meander
through the short term. Northerly winds will bring drier air into
the cwa, particularly on Wednesday, with pw values expected to
drop to around 1.2-1.3 inches. Overall convective activity should
be limited during this time period and forecast pops are around 10
percent or less. Highs will be in the low 90s, with lows in the
upper 60s to lower 70s, both above normal for this time of year.

Long term [Thursday through Monday]
Thursday will remain dry, but the pattern will change as the
upper low finally pushes off to the east as an upper trough
swings across the eastern conus. A weak front will push into the
cwa over the weekend but pops with the front will be limited with
only 20-30 pops in the forecast for the weekend into early next
week. Highs in the low 90s will be limited to the lower 80s by
Sunday and Monday. Lows in the lower 70s will fall into the 60s
for Sunday and Monday morning.

Marine
Winds will remain below small craft advisory with seas of 2 feet
or less through the remainder of the week. Winds and seas will
increase for Sunday and Monday. Convection will be limited Tuesday
through Thursday.

Fire weather
Dry conditions are expected for the next few days. However, relative
humidity values will remain above critical levels.

Hydrology
Rainfall amounts will be limited over the next week and thus
flooding is not expected.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
