06z issuance... Post systemVFR CIGS visbys will see a temp
increase in cloud cover shortly after sunrise, with MVFR cigs.

Skies clear out late morning into the afternoon, bringingVFR
conditions back for the rest of the forecast.

Update... Planning on cancelling to.A 56 for sc al counties along
with santa rosa fl and adjacent escambia bay at 7 pm cdt. Surface
winds continue to veer. Remainder of to.A 56 will remain in
effect for about another hour for okaloosa co, choctawhatchee bay
and out to 60 nmi. Will coordinate this with WFO tae next hour (or
so). 23 jmm

00z issuance... A front approaching the mississippi alabama state
line as of this writing will cross area TAF sites this evening.

With cold advection behind the front and drier air well behind am
expecting drops in CIGS visbys to low end MVFR ifr levels later
this evening and lasting to sunrise. Winds at this point are
remaining strong enough to preclude lifr levels, but any drop in
speeds will allow for lifr levels.

After sunrise, with drier air moving in, and a bit strong winds,
vfr CIGS visbys will return by noontime Monday.

prev discussion... Issued 539 pm cdt Sun apr 22 2018
discussion... See updated information for land areas below.

Update... Very quick update. Despite some recent veering of the sfc
winds, which has acted to decrease vertical wind shear values sw
of the warm front, the vertical wind shear and thermodynamic
instability values on the latest mesoanalyses are still
sufficiently elevated enough to warrant the formation of long-
lived mesocyclones (some of which may produce isolated
tornadoes). Therefore, am in no hurry to clear any portion of
tornado watch 56 which is currently in effect over eastern portion
of our areas. 23 jmm
prev discussion... Issued 358 pm cdt Sun apr 22 2018
this will be an abbreviated afd due to ongoing active
weather...

near term now through Monday ... In the very near term, forecast
area is bisected by surface warm front that lies in a nw-se
fashion across our area. The feature is lifting to the NE with
time. A few hours ago mesocyclones, some of which may likely produced
tornadoes, exploded over the NE sector of our area (and over the
interior NW fl panhandle). Currently the ambient environment
remains favorable for more mesocyclone and isolated tornado
formation the next several hours along and just SE of the sfc
warm front. Effsrhel is maxed out in the 300-500 m^2 s-^2 and
there are some 1000-1500 j kg sbcapes south of the warm front
(mlcapes generally range under 1000 j kg). This will continue
through around 9 pm cdt and a tornado watch is in effect. By
midnight, an upstream cold front will have moved through the
western portion of our area. By 3 am, sfc winds will have shifted
to a w-nw direction behind the cold front. There will be periods
of patchy drizzle and fog in the sfc low wrap-around moisture
after the more significant and deeper precipitation departs the ne
zones during the mid evening. Give the orientation of the upper
system as it lifts to the NE on Monday, it will likley be mostly
cloudy on Monday north of highway 84 with possible drizzle
lingering into the late morning. Temperatures will range below
normal.

Look for us to start trimming back the western edge of tornado
watch 56 over the next few hours. 23 jmm
short term Monday night through Wednesday night ... A n-s cloud
gradient remains Monday night through Tuesday as another upper
level vorticity maximum passes to the n. Yet another system
approaches Wed night, and clouds and rain chances will be on the
increase from the nw. 23 jmm
long term Thursday through Sunday ... No changes to previous
package. Afternoon high and morning low temperatures remain below
seasonal values through the period. 23 jmm and 10 gjm
marine... A cold front moves through the coastal waters this
evening and very early Monday morning. Showers and thunderstorms end
from the west. Winds shift to the west and then northwest around
daybreak. West to northwest flow is then expected to gradually weaken
in the wake of the front through midweek.

A tornado watch remains in effect out to 60 nm east of pensacola
through 9 pm cdt. Also a small craft exercise caution remains in
effect through most of the evening and may cancelled with the
1030 pm cdt update. 23 jmm

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.
