near term now through Friday night ... Upper level ridging will build
over the region today as surface high pressure remains to the west.

This will maintain a dry northerly flow pattern with clear skies and
light winds. Highs today will warm into the upper 60s and low 70s.

Another cool night expected tonight with a dry airmass along with
with clear skies and light winds. Lows will fall into the low to mid
40s inland to near 50 along the coast. 13
short term Saturday through Sunday night ... A warm and dry
weather pattern is projected to continue through the weekend.

Surface high pressure over the north central gulf and a ridge
aloft will dominate sensible weather Saturday. Surface high
pressure shifts east toward the eastern seaboard Sunday night
creating a low level moist return flow. Aloft, the ridge shifts
eastward and a zonal flow develops allowing upper level cloud
cover to spill into the area. Minor shortwave troughs rippling
through the flow aloft remain decoupled from the lower levels and
unable to generate any precipitation. The firmly established low
level southerly flow will increase the low level moisture
advection leading to the development of patchy fog Sunday night.

Overnight fog formation will be offset by the increased upper
level cloud cover spilling into the region and is not expected to
become dense at this time. Daytime highs climb into the 70s
Saturday and Sunday with upper 70s possible Sunday inland from the
coast. Overnight lows range from mid 40s to low 50s Saturday
night to mid 50s to near 60 Sunday night. 08
long term Monday through Thursday ... Rain chances return to the
region Monday and Monday night in the form of showers and
thunderstorms. Current timing indicates a cold front approaching
from the northwest will move into SE mississippi and our northern
alabama counties north of hwy 84 during late afternoon and early
evening time frame and then out over the gulf waters my around
midnight. A band of rain showers and thunderstorms will precede
the front and lingering light post frontal showers will continue
after it passes. Enough upper level forcing will be available for
widespread ascent with just enough instability and vertical shear
available for thunderstorm development. The potential for severe
thunderstorms or heavy rainfall appears limited with this system
at this time.

High pressure over the northern plain states will ridge in behind
the front Monday night producing a northwesterly wind flow and
ushering in drier and cooler air. Aloft an upper level ridge
builds in and remains in place through Thursday. Surface high
pressue to our north shifts east to the eastern seaboard Thursday
ushering in another a moist low-level return flow.

Daytime high temperatures will generally trend from the mid to
upper 70s Monday to mid to upper 60s Tuesday and Wednesday and
then low to mid 70s Thursday. Overnight lows will fall to near 50
to mid 50s Monday night and into the 40s Tuesday and Wednesday
nights except along the immediate coast where low to mid 50s are
expected.

Marine... A light to moderate northerly flow will become westerly
this afternoon as high pressure builds eastward across the marine
area. A southeasterly flow returns over the weekend as high moves
east as a cold front approaches from the west. This front is
expected to move through the area late Monday night with a northerly
flow in its wake. 13

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.
