continued very hot conditions will continue with afternoon
heat indices in the 100 to 104 degree range Sunday afternoon...

near term now through Sunday ... High pressure, both surface and
aloft continues over the forecast area through Sunday, with dry and
hot conditions continuing. A light wind across the area this
afternoon, still somewhat variable over interior areas but south to
southeast near the coast will become light and variable across the
entire area overnight. A light onshore flow is then expected once
again during the day on Sunday. A surface ridge of high pressure
will remain across the southeast CONUS and northeastern gulf of
mexico while a strong 500mb high pressure system remains entrenched
across the area as well, maintaining the large scale subsidence and
dry weather pattern across the region. Guidance not overly aggressive
with overnight fog potential, although some indications of patchy
mainly light fog over some western counties late tonight. This was
noted by previous shift and see no changes in that regard.

Primary concern for the near term will continue to be the very hot
temperatures for this time of the year. Temperatures have approached
record highs today, and near record high temperatures are once again
expected on Sunday. Highs on Sunday will approach 10 degrees above
normal for this time of the year at many locations, generally
reaching the mid to upper 90s over most of the interior (with a few
locations, especially east of the i-65 corridor in south central al
and north of i-10 in the western fl panhandle possibly, hitting the
century mark). A little cooler along the coast, generally in the
upper 80s to lower 90s during the afternoon hours on Sunday,
although a few locations may warm to the mid 90s before the sea
breeze moves inland during the afternoon. Heat indices will be a
little higher on Sunday than they were on Saturday, with hi's in the
the areas noted above with the higher actual temperatures reaching
the 100-104 degree range (a few locations possibly a degree or two
higher). Actual highs and heat indices are a little below heat
advisory criteria, but hot weather practices and precautions should
be observed. As we have previously stated, keep in mind the heat
index value can be increased by 15 degrees fahrenheit and heat
indices meeting or exceeding 103 can lead to dangerous heat
disorders with prolonged exposure and or physical activity in the
heat. Please consider this if planning any outdoor activities. Stay
hydrated and take frequent breaks in the shade to avoid overexposure
to the heat. Very warm and muggy conditions expected tonight, with
overnight lows dropping into the upper 60s to low 70s inland, mid to
upper 70s along the immediate coast. In addition to the heat, a
moderate risk of dangerous rip currents along area beaches now
continues through Sunday. 12 ds
short term Sunday night through Tuesday night ... A strong deep
layer ridge will remain over the area through mid week. Strong
subsidence under the ridge will maintain dry and hot conditions.

Highs will generally be in the mid and upper 90s with a few spots
around 100. Coastal locations will be in the low to mid 90s. Heat
index values will generally be in the 100 to 103 range. 13
long term Wednesday through Saturday ... The upper ridge will
weaken on Thursday and shift eastward. This will allow a weak
front to move into the southeast. Meanwhile, deep layer moisture
levels will increase on the backside of the ridge. As upper
ridging weakens late in the week and the front approaches, temps
will return to closer to normal levels and also allow rain chances
to return to the area. 13
marine... High pressure remains centered over the marine area through
early next week. Aside from a light to occasionally moderate onshore
flow developing with the seabreeze each day, winds will remain light
through early next week. By midweek, the onshore flow increases
slightly as the high pressure center begins to shift east and the
onshore flow becomes better developed. The persistent onshore flow
keeps wave heights slightly elevated tonight through Tuesday (up to
around 2 feet), with a slight building of seas mid to late week
(up to 3 to 4 feet well offshore) as flow increases slightly.

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.
