Near term [through tonight]
With high pressure overhead and a cool and dry airmass still in
place, the only hindrance to radiational cooling tonight may be the
approach of some high cloudiness from the west. These clouds should
help keep temperatures several degrees warmer than last night.

However, normally colder locations will likely drop to near (or just
below freezing) for one more night.

Short term [Saturday through Sunday night]
Two upper level disturbances, one over louisiana and one over
california, will swing eastward this weekend. The one over louisiana
will move across the northern gulf coast and then out into the
atlantic, bringing us a slight increase in upper level cloud
coverage. The other will move into the midwest by Sunday night,
with a cold front developing across the plains below it. At the
lower levels, a ridge of high pressure will shift eastward.

Overall, this will make for warm, partly cloudy conditions. Highs
will be in the low 60s Saturday, upper 60s on Sunday. Lows will be
in the upper 30s Saturday night, upper 40s Sunday night.

Long term [Monday through Friday]
The aforementioned front will cross the southeast Monday through
Tuesday, with the best chances for showers Monday evening and
overnight. Instability remains weak with this system, so
thunderstorms will be quite isolated. Conditions behind the front
will be near normal for this time of year, with highs in the low 60s
and lows mostly in the 40s.

Aviation [through 18z Saturday]
Vfr conditions with light winds will persist through the forecast
period.

Marine
Wind speeds will increase Monday when a cold front approaches and
then crosses our coastal waters. Chances for rain and isolated
thunderstorms will be highest Monday and Monday night. Winds from
the north will peak around 20 knots Tuesday morning and seas will
build to 3 to 5 feet.

Fire weather
Low dispersions are expected across the entire tri-state region
Saturday. Afternoon relative humidity values will approach critical
thresholds mainly across the florida counties Saturday but winds
preclude any red flag headlines. Moisture gradually increases later
in the weekend. The next low pressure system to affect the area
comes Monday Tuesday.

Hydrology
Moderate to severe drought conditions persist across most of our
area. With an inch of rain or less expected Monday through Monday
night, rivers will remain well below flood stage for the next
several days.

Spotter information statement
Spotter activation is not requested. However, spotters are always
encouraged to safely report significant weather conditions when they
occur by calling the office or tweeting us @nwstallahassee.

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.
