Discussion
High pressure will ridge across the area through the weekend
keeping a generally SE flow in place with afternoon sea breezes
turning winds onshore each day. Mainly scattered showers and
thunderstorms will be possible each afternoon and evening as
storms develop along the sea breeze and subsequent outflow
boundaries then push back toward the coast in the evening. Highs
will generally be 90-95 with heat index values of 100-105 each
afternoon, with lows in the lower to mid 70s inland to around 80
near the coast each night.

For next week, an upper trough shifts over the eastern us, with
the surface trough settling into the deep south Monday Tuesday,
and stalling just to the north of the state Wednesday Thursday.

This will shift the ridge axis in place across the state to the
south, bringing more S SW flow across the area and SW flow aloft.

This will allow for greater thunderstorm coverage for mid-next
week, along with bringing afternoon high temperatures down a
couple of degrees, with upper 80s to lower 90s expected. Lows will
remain in the mid 70s inland to near 80 coastal.

Aviation
The sea breeze is starting to develop along the coast and turn
winds to the southwest. Winds will continue to turn to the W nw
through the rest of the afternoon, with scattered storms
developing. Winds become light and variable after 02z with storms
dissipating. Light and variable flow continues through the mid
morning Friday, with a few morning showers possible north.

GenerallyVFR conditions are expected, though brief tempo MVFR ifr
conditions possible in storms.

Marine
Winds and seas will remain generally SE through the weekend with
an afternoon sea breeze turning winds onshore each day. Winds
will then shift to the S SW as the ridge settles southward for
early next week. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be
possible through the period. Winds will generally remain below 15
knots and seas less than 3 feet, except briefly increasing in the
vicinity of thunderstorms.

Fire weather
No concerns.

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.
