Discussion See updated information for land areas below.

Update Made some minor changes to the forecast package to
account for current trends. Tweaked today's forecasted maximum
temperatures... Generally raising them a degree or two. Surface
heating has already resulted in the development of a widespread
cumulus cloud field especially closer to the coast. This field
gradually northward this morning and afternoon. Unlike yesterday,
subsidence aloft appears strong enough this afternoon to inhibit
the development of showers along the seabreeze front. 08

discussion... Updated for latest aviation discussion below.

Aviation...

12z issuance...VFR conditions will prevail over the next 24
hours, with only a few low clouds developing throughout the day.

Light east winds early this morning will become southeast at 6 to
11 knots. 22
prev discussion... Issued 355 am cdt Fri may 24 2019
near term now through Friday night ... The surface ridge of high
pressure across the southeast states and northeastern gulf of
mexico will shift slightly southward over the next 24 hours. This
will not change the wind flow as we still expect light southerly
winds to develop today, followed by light and variable to calm
winds overnight. The strong 500mb high pressure system will remain
centered over the southeast conus, keeping large scale subsidence
and dry weather in place over the region. The morning patchy light
fog will burn-off early, followed by mostly sunny to partly cloudy
skies. High temperatures today will be as much as 10 degrees above
normal inland areas, ranging from 91 to 96 degrees, with heat
indices approaching the century mark across south central alabama
and the northern portions of the western florida panhandle. With
southerly winds off the gulf, highs along the coastal sections
will range from 86 to 91 degrees. Light winds and remaining
boundary layer moisture will result in a combination of patchy fog
to form again tonight, mainly across the southern 2 3rds of the
forecast area. Low temperatures tonight will be around 5 above
normal, ranging from the mid to upper 60s inland areas, and from
70 to 75 degrees along the immediate coastal sections. 22
short term Saturday through Sunday night ... A strong upper ridge
remains entrenched over the eastern CONUS though the weekend, with
strong subsidence bringing temperatures well above seasonal norms
and high daytime heat indices. High temperatures are expected to top
out in the mid to upper 90s with some localities seeing highs above
100 over inland area, around 90 along the coast. Overnight,
temperatures dropping into the upper 60s to low 70s are expected
inland, low to mid 70s close to the coast. Daytime heat indices are
expected to rise into the 100 to 105 degree range each day, with
some localities seeing higher values. The short term is expected to
be generally rain free, with dry southwest to westerly upper flow
combining with strong upper subsidence to suppress convection.

16
long term Monday through Thursday ... A series of shortwave systems
moving east over the northern half of the CONUS begins to weaken the
upper ridge beginning Monday. A strong upper system moving over the
great lakes region late Wednesday through Thursday shifts the upper
ridge south to over the gulf of mexico, with zonal flow setting up
over the southeast Thursday. A very weak surface cold front
associated with the great lakes system moves over northern ms al ga
Thursday. When combined with the weakening shifting of the upper
ridge and better moisture return over the lower mississippi river
valley and nearby, a small chance of rain returns to northwestern
portions of the forecast area for Thursday. Temperatures well
above seasonal norms will being to ease through the week as the
ridge weakens, then shifts south, but are expected to stay above
seasonal through the rest of the week. 16
marine... A light to moderate southerly wind flow will persist
through early next week as a broad surface ridge of high pressure
continues from the western atlantic to the eastern gulf. The highest
winds and seas are expected each afternoon near the coast due to the
seabreeze. A persistent swell from the south will keep offshore wave
heights slightly elevated through Saturday. 22

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.
