Synopsis
An upper level ridge parked over the region will continue to
provide fair and hot conditions through mid next week. Near
record high temperatures expected through Wednesday. A front and
increasing moisture will provide a slight chance of
thunderstorms Thursday night into Saturday.

Near term through tonight
Near record temperatures expected to continue today as hot
upper ridge remains situated over the southeastern states. At
the surface a weak trough will push through the forecast area
this morning and result in west to northwesterly winds through
the day. This downsloping flow will aid in pushing max
temperatures into the triple digits across the region along with
the 850mb temps forecast to be around 20c. Strong subsidence
inversion noted on forecast soundings and lack of deep layer
moisture should prevent convective development. Given persistent
heat and early season prolonged heat event underway, after
coordination with surrounding offices, will plan to issue an sps
highlighting the unseasonably hot temperatures.

Overnight lows will be slowly to cool initially but expected to
drop into the lower 70s under mostly clear skies, which is in
line with forecast guidance.

Short term Monday through Tuesday night
Little change. The upper ridge is progged to shift a little
farther south, to over the E gomex fl. An upper level ripple or
two along with a weak surface boundary expected to come through
with little consequence. A generally dry atmosphere and
subsidence expected to preclude significant pops. H85 downslope
flow, and associated hot conditions, to continue. It appears
that relatively dry low level air will keep apparent temps heat
index values from reaching our local heat advisory criteria of
110f.

Long term Wednesday through Saturday
Continued dry and hot Wednesday. Some upper energy will suppress
the upper ridge a little farther south late week. Accompanying
surface front and increasing moisture progged to enter the
picture late in the forecast period. Latest model consensus
indicates slight chance pops mainly from Thu nt into sat. This
will also result in MAX temps trending down some, though still
well above normal.

Aviation 06z Sunday through Thursday
Expect mainlyVFR conditions through the 24-hour TAF period.

Upper ridge will remain situated over the southeastern states
with surface high pressure in place. Mostly clear skies should
give way to isolated or scatteredVFR cumulus clouds due to
diurnal heating. A weak surface trough will cross the region
this morning with west to northwesterly surface winds expected
today around 10 knots.

There is the possibility of fog around sunrise with vsbys
dropping to MVFR ifr at ogb ags but expected to be brief if it
does happen at all and will carry tempo group to handle the
possibility.

Extended aviation outlook... No significant impacts expected at
this time.

Climate
Prolonged dry and hot conditions expected, with near daily
record high temperatures possible through Wednesday. There is
also the possibility that temperatures could top out at or above
the all-time records for the month of may. Heat index values up
to 106 expected. Please remain ALERT to the dangers of heat and
prepare accordingly.

The all-time record high temperature for the month of may at
augusta is 100 degrees, reached on 2 dates.

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.
