334 pm edt Wed apr 26 2017

Near term [through tonight]
Generally quiet weather is expected overnight as upper ridge
gradually breaks down ahead of trough exiting the plains. By
sunrise, could see a few thunderstorms approach SE alabama as the
line currently over arkansas and eastern texas moves southeastward.

Short term [Thursday through Friday night]
In the upper levels a trough will be over the central u.S. On
Thursday extending from mn to ga. By Friday a ridge will build
in from the south. By Thursday morning a weak cold front will be
approaching the region bringing increased clouds, showers and
thunderstorms. This front will likely dissipate on Thursday night.

On Thursday afternoon a few thunderstorms may be strong to severe
with the weak forcing, high instability environment (cape near
2000 j/kg). SPC has most of the region in a marginal risk for
severe weather. Highs on Thursday will be in the low to upper 80s
(due to varying cloud cover).

On Friday southerly flow will return as the cold front dissipates
or lifts to the north. Clouds should clear out by the afternoon.

Highs on Friday will be in the upper 80s away from the immediate
coast.

Long term [Saturday through Wednesday]
In the upper levels a ridge will be in place until Monday when a
trough stretches from ia to ga. By Tuesday near zonal flow will be
in place. At the surface high pressure will be in place until the
next system approaches on Sunday afternoon. Pops will begin to
increase Sunday night with the best chance of rain on Monday.

Highs will be in the 80s with lows mostly in the 60s.

Aviation [through 18z Thursday]
Windy conditions are expected at all terminals through this
afternoon and especially after sunrise on Thursday. Site
(especially kecp and kdhn) could see gusts over 25 knots by the
end of the forecast period. Winds overnight should limit fog.

However, patchy low CIGS cannot be ruled out, especially to the
east.

Marine
Southerly winds will increase this evening. A small craft advisory
is in effect for all waters west of apalachicola from this evening
through the overnight hours. Small craft should exercise caution
in the waters east of apalachicola. Winds will decrease tomorrow
in the late afternoon. Southerly winds will increase again this
weekend with another small craft advisory likely on Sunday.

Fire weather
While red flag conditions are not expected over the next few days,
strong low-level winds will contribute to increasing dispersion
values across the area, especially north of i-10.

Hydrology
Local rivers are currently low and holding steady. There will be a
good chance of rain tomorrow and again on Monday. West of the
apalachicola/chattahoochee river, forecast rain totals are 1.5 to
2 inches over the next seven days. Elsewhere forecast rain totals
are 0.25 to 1.5 inches over the next seven days with the lowest
amounts in eastern big bend fl and south central ga.

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.
