Near term [through tonight]
Storms developing across central al ga this morning generated
outflow that propagated into the tri-state region this afternoon,
sparking showers and thunderstorms. These storms have just about
all dissipated or moved into southeast ga at this hour. Due to an
area of weak low-level convergent flow generated from these
storms, expect a few isolated showers to remain possible over land
for the next few hours. Otherwise, showers and isolated
thunderstorms will shift once again to the northern gulf
late tonight. Lows will fall into the lower to middle 70s.

Prev discussion [757 pm edt]
Short term [Wednesday through Thursday night]
The weak upper level pattern will continue for the next several
days. With plenty of moisture and the sea breeze for forcing,
expect widespread coverage of thunderstorms. Pops will be 30-60%
Wednesday with the highest chances over SW ga. Thursday pops will
be slightly lower, 30-50% and will be concentrated along the i-10
corridor. Temps will be seasonal with highs in the low 90s and
lows in the mid 70s.

Long term [Friday through Tuesday]
A trough over the east coast will translate through during the
long term period. An associated cold front will push through over
the weekend, however there are some differences in the models at
this time. The GFS has drier air arriving behind the front and the
euro keeps moisture around into early next week. Kept pops in the
30 to 50% range. Highs will be in the upper 80s with lows in the
lower 70s.

Aviation [through 00z Thursday]
Scattered storms in south central ga and the eastern fl big bend are
dissipating and moving east this evening. By around 10-11z, MVFR
cigs and vsbys are expected to develop near dhn, aby, and vld, but
should scatter out around 15-16z. Late in the period, scattered
thunderstorms will be seen across the area, though it's a little
early to pin down timing and location.

Marine
Light winds and seas will prevail for the next several
days. As the pressure gradient tightens towards the weekend, seas
will increase to 3 feet. Showers and thunderstorms are possible
each day.

Fire weather
Hazardous fire weather conditions are not expected over the
next several days.

Hydrology
While all rivers are below flood stage, some thunderstorms may
produce heavy rain that leads to localized flooding.

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.
