Near term [through today]
Deep layer ridging will build over the southeast as a trough moves
into the atlantic ocean today. Light and variable winds will
gradually be replaced with light easterly flow by the late
afternoon. The forecast remains on track for isolated to scattered
storm coverage focused mostly over north florida with only a few
isolated storms in southern alabama and georgia. With little
relief from rain or cloud coverage, temperatures will rise into
the mid 90s again today, with heat indices around 100-105.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
