253 pm edt Thu may 25 2017

Near term [through tonight]
Surface high pressure will slide eastward becoming centered over the
florida peninsula by daybreak. With clear skies, light or calm wind
and a very dry airmass, temperatures will drop into the mid 50s over
most inland locations with upper 50s to lower 60s along the coast.

Short term [Friday through Saturday night]
Ridging pushing in from the west will bring mostly clear skies as
well as give daytime highs a slight bump. Temperatures will
generally top out in the upper 80s Friday and in the low 90s
Saturday which is a few degrees above average. Areas along the
coast however will stay a bit cooler toping out in the mid 80s.

Long term [Sunday through Thursday]
Moisture will be on the increase ahead of an approaching frontal
system late Sunday. The front is expected to stall out on
approach and dissipate to the north of the forecast area midweek.

However, it's influence and influx in moisture in combination
with a wandering surface high over south florida will be enough
to bring back a 20 to 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms
starting Monday. The highest chances Monday are expected along our
western panhandle and SE alabama forecast zones with the chances
for mostly afternoon storms increasing to the east throughout the
week. Daytime highs will remain within a few degrees of average
with overnight lows staying a few degrees or more above average.

Aviation [through 18z Friday]
Vfr conditions prevailing through the period. Gusty NW winds will
diminish this evening becoming light overnight. Winds tomorrow
will generally be westerly under 10 kts. &&

Marine
Small craft operators are encouraged to continue to exercise
caution until westerly diminish at or below 15 knots this
evening. Winds and seas should remain light to occasionally
moderate through the rest of the period.

Fire weather
No concerns.

Hydrology
Most of the area has picked up about 2-4" of rain over the last
week. As much of the area has been parched, particularly south-
central ga and the fl big bend, this rainfall has been welcome
relief. No river flooding is occuring or forecast to occur. The
highest rise is along the kinchafoonee creek near dawson, which is
currently in action stage and will rise to around 6.5 ft this
morning before falling.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
