Near term [through today]
Surface cold front, analyzed just off the florida coast, will
continue to slowly push southward and dissipate later today. A
moist, easterly flow will set up today with generally mostly cloudy
to cloudy skies. Moisture is fairly shallow and below 10000 feet so
will keep silent 10 pop in the forecast today. Wouldn't be surprised
to get a few sprinkles here or there but won't amount to much. With
the persistent cool easterly wind of 10-15 mph and cloudy skies,
expect temperatures mainly in the upper 60s across SE alabama and sw
georgia with low 70s across northern florida.

Short term [tonight through Saturday]
In the upper levels a cut-off low over the great plains will move
into the midwest by Saturday. A trough will approach the region in
the late afternoon and evening hours on Saturday. At the surface a
low will be over il/mo on Saturday. The associated cold front will
not make it this far south. The best chance for rain will be late
afternoon and evening on Saturday as the trough approaches. Pops
up to 40 percent are forecast in western portions of the region.

Thunderstorms are possible with moderate 0-6km shear and dew
points in the lower 60s. However, CAPE will be low. Lows will be
in the 50s. Highs on Friday will be in the mid to upper 70s. Highs
on Saturday will be near 80.

Long term [Saturday night through Thursday]
In the upper levels a cut-off low will be over the midwest on
Saturday night. A trough will move through the region on Saturday
night. Pops will be 30 to 50 percent in western and northern parts
of the region. On Sunday some showers may linger as southerly flow
continues with the cold front staying well to the north. Pops will
be 20 to 30 percent on Sunday. Another trough will move through
Monday night into Tuesday bringing a chance of rain. Lows will be
mostly in the upper 50s. Highs will be in the lower 80s.

Aviation [through 06z Friday]
MVFR CIGS are expected to develop closer to dawn across all
terminals with moist, easterly flow setting up. MVFR conds will
persist through much of the day, perhaps lifting or scattering in
the late afternoon or early evening. Winds will continue from the
east today with a constant 10 to 12 knot breeze with a few gusts
approaching 20 knots.

Marine
Easterly winds will increase to 20 knots by this afternoon. A
small craft advisory has been issued starting this afternoon
through Friday afternoon. Winds will stay elevated through
Saturday evening.

Fire weather
Moist, easterly surface winds will keep minimum relative humidity
values well above critical levels. Mostly cloudy to cloudy skies
will be the rule with wind speeds of 10 to 15 mph with a few gusts
approaching 20 mph. No red flag concerns.

Hydrology
Local rivers are well below action levels. Rain totals are
forecast to be less than half an inch over the next seven days. No
flooding concerns.

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.
