. NEAR RECORD WARMTH CONTINUES THROUGH MONDAY . . RAIN CHANCES INCREASE WITH A BRIEF COOLDOWN ON TUESDAY .

CURRENTLY.

Overnight surface analysis depicts a warm front lifting northward through the Savannah River Valley as strong high pressure (1035 millibars) just off the New England coast wedges southwestward across the Carolina Piedmont and into northern Georgia. Meanwhile, the axis of Atlantic ridging was extending westward across the Florida peninsula Aloft. stout ridging centered over western Cuba was gradually building northward across the Florida peninsula, while troughing was digging southward through the Rockies. GOES-East nighttime infrared/fog imagery indicates that stratocumulus cloud cover was increasing in coverage and lifting northward into the Suwannee Valley and north central Florida on the periphery of the Atlantic surface ridge axis. Temperatures at 08Z were generally in the 55-60 degree range, with dewpoints mostly in the low to mid 50s.

NEAR TERM [Through Tonight].

Elevated southerly winds just off the surface will likely preclude fog development for most locations early this morning. Otherwise, deep-layered ridging will continue to build northward over our region as a potent shortwave trough digs towards the Four Corners region of the Desert Southwest. A more humid air mass will lift northward from the FL peninsula on the periphery of the Atlantic surface ridge, with some weak isentropic lift developing stratocumulus cloud cover that will advect northward this morning. Breaks in this cloudiness will quickly develop by the mid to late morning hours, and a prevailing southerly wind flow today will allow highs to soar to near or just under daily record high temperatures at most inland locations (see climate section below). Highs will generally reach the mid 80s, with a few upper 80s possible in north central Florida. Our local pressure gradient will remain loose enough for the Atlantic and Gulf coast sea breezes to develop by early afternoon and push inland, with an isolated brief shower possible along these boundaries. Strengthening subsidence should limit coverage significantly, however. The Atlantic sea breeze will keep coastal highs generally in the 75-80 degree range today.

Increasing dewpoints today may lead to sea fog development over the near shore Atlantic waters and coastal locations after midnight tonight. Elevated southerly winds at the boundary layer tonight will likely prevent significant fog formation inland, but some patches of lower stratus may advect northward from the northeast Gulf of Mexico into the western Suwannee Valley during the predawn hours. Warm air advection will keep lows mostly in the lower 60s across our region, which is about 15-20 degrees above late February climatology and will be near or just under daily record warm minimum temperatures for February 28th.

SHORT TERM [Sunday Through Monday Night].

A stalled front will lie to our north in the TN Valley on Sunday. Light southerly flow in the warm, humid air mass south of a stalled front will likely mean fog will linger into the late morning hours, especially over our near shore waters. Near record warmth will be in place on Sunday- temperatures will peak in the low 80s in interior SE GA to upper 80s near Ocala. Overnight, lows will dip into the low-mid 80s.

The front will slide south toward our area Sunday night and Monday, with a line of showers with isolated embedded thunderstorms is expected to race ahead of the actual front. That line could move into the area around Monday afternoon then the front should move through Monday night. Above normal temperatures will continue into Monday with highs in the upper 70s to mid 80s and lows will be in the low 50s to low 60s.

LONG TERM [Tuesday Through Saturday].

The front will stall to our south Tuesday and lift north again as a warm front Tuesday night, then another cold front will move through late in the week. Showers and isolated to scattered thunderstorms are in the forecast across the area Tuesday through Wednesday, then mostly shower activity expected Thursday through Friday night.

MARINE.

The axis of Atlantic ridging will build westward across the Florida peninsula this weekend, maintaining southerly winds over our local waters. Winds and seas should mostly remain below Caution levels through Sunday evening. This ridge will sink southward by late Monday as strong high pressure builds southeastward from the Upper Midwest towards the Ohio Valley, which will drive a cold front through the Georgia waters on Monday evening and through the northeast Florida waters before sunrise on Tuesday. Onshore winds and chances for showers and thunderstorms will increase on Tuesday as high pressure reaches the Mid-Atlantic coast and briefly wedges down the southeastern seaboard. Low pressure will then develop over the western Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday and will pivot across the Deep South on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. This weather pattern will result in a warm front lifting northward through our waters on Tuesday night, followed by a cold frontal passage on Wednesday afternoon as strengthening low pressure accelerates northeastward along the Carolina Coast.

Rip Currents: A long period southeasterly ocean swell and a developing long shore current will create a moderate rip current risk at all area beaches this weekend.

FIRE WEATHER.

Elevated transport winds Saturday across southeast Georgia and Sunday across most inland portions of the area will lead to high afternoon dispersions. A cold front will push through the region Monday, bringing scattered showers to SE GA and NE FL. On Tuesday through Tuesday night, that front will return as a warm front and then stall to our north Wednesday, giving us chances for showers and isolated to scattered thunderstorms Tuesday through Wednesday. Our next cold front will sweep east across the region late next week, with cooler, drier air in the forecast for next weekend.

HYDROLOGY.

Moderate River Flooding: Ongoing along the lower Altamaha and upper Alapaha Rivers. Both sites will gradually lower to minor stage early next week.

Minor River Flooding: Ongoing along most of the St. Marys, Satilla, Altamaha and Santa Fe Rivers. The lower Santa Fe will continue to rise through the end of the week as flow becomes blocked by rising waters near its confluence with the lower Suwannee River, with moderate flooding forecast to begin along the lower Santa Fe River near Three Rivers Estates by late Saturday as minor flooding begins along lower portions of the Suwannee River from the gauge near Luraville southward to around the gauge near Rock Bluff.

CLIMATE.

Record Highs at our designated climate sites through Monday:

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.
