Few showers developed this evening north of i-10, mainly across
southeast georgia along the seabreeze boundaries. This activity is
quickly winding down and should wrap up completely here in the
next hour or two. Fairly mild night in store with overnight min
temps expected to be around 10 degrees above normal. Could see
some fog overnight with best chances mainly along the coast of
southeast georgia. No major updates needed this evening.

MainlyVFR with possible MVFR restrictions in shallow fog for a
brief period late tonight. Chance of showers and storms on
Thursday but still too low to warrant any inclusion in the tafs at
this time.

Light onshore flow overnight with southeast flow increasing to 10
to 15 knots Thursday afternoon.

Rip currents: moderate risk.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
