237 pm edt Sun aug 20 2017

Near term [through tonight]
A few storms will be possible through early evening over the big
bend. Otherwise, dry and warm conditions are expected overnight.

Short term [Monday through Tuesday night]
An upper low over the gulf of mexico will continue tracking west
away from the region through the short term period. Another weak
trough off the florida east coast will also track west beneath a
ridge of high pressure over the carolinas. This approaching trough
will increase cloud cover on Monday along with the chance for
afternoon showers and thunderstorms. With this disturbance nearby
on Tuesday, expect a similar distribution of rain chances in the
afternoon with pops around 40 percent. High temperatures both days
will generally be in the lower 90s.

Long term [Wednesday through Sunday]
The long term period will start with the region between an
approaching tropical wave off the florida east coast and a
steadily steepening eastern CONUS trough extending down into the
mid south. Initially, rain chances on Wednesday and Thursday will
be near normal for late august, but as the trough amplifies and
drops further south, rain chances will increase by Friday as a
weak frontal boundary drops into the region from the north. There
are some models that support bringing this frontal boundary down
to the florida border, allowing some drier air to enter south
georgia. Whether the front makes it that far south or not, no
model has the boundary clearing the forecast area, which suggests
at minimum a potentially wet pattern. Thus, rain chances from
Friday through the end of the period are above climatology.

High temperatures early in the period will be in the lower 90s,
and then drop into the upper 80s to near 90 with all the
anticipated storms and cloud cover.

Aviation [through 18z Monday]
Vfr conditions with light winds are expected to prevail at all
terminals through the forecast period. The best chance for any
nearby thunderstorms this afternoon and early evening will be at
kvld.

Marine
Generally light winds and low seas are expected through the next
several days.

Fire weather
Outside of marginally low dispersions across the big bend of florida
this afternoon, hazardous fire weather conditions are not expected
through the next week.

Hydrology
Rain chances will return to normal this week, suggesting that at
least some localized heavy rainfall will be possible with the
strongest storms. However, there are no widespread flood concerns.

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.
