Near term [through tonight]
Areas of fog are expected this morning with a very light wind
flow regime and ample low level moisture... And anticipate fog to
dissipate by mid morning. As high pressure moves away from the
area to the east, a warm front across central fl will push
northward in response to large scale trough across the middle
part of the u.S. That is digging east-southeast. The warm front
will lift into northeast fl by this aftn and into southeast ga by
this evening. Rapid moisture influx with pwats of 2 inches and
locally high low level convergence along the front will allow for
scattered showers rains and embedded thunderstorms to develop.
Best rain chances are fcst for parts of northeast fl mainly to
the southeast of a line from fernandina beach to gainesville.
Locally heavy downpours and gusty winds are possible mainly around
st johns, putnam and flagler counties. Instability not overly
impressive but LI is -5 and mid level lapse rates are on the order
of 5-6 c km so a few thunderstorms are to be expected... With an
outside chance a strong storm could form given briefly favorable
environment of near 35 kt bulk shear and the low level convergence
along the warm front. MAX temps expected in the 80-85 deg range.
Tonight... The warm front will continue to lift northward and move
north of the forecast area after about 06z-09z, while another
cold front approaches the area. Scattered showers and some
isolated thunderstorms expected with the warm front, and then a
lull in the activity before the cold front moves toward the wrn
zones by early Tuesday morning. Above normal temps min temps
expected tonight. Appears some patchy fog will be possible with
relatively light winds in place ahead of the cold front.
Short term [Tuesday through Wednesday night]
Upper trough over the central u.S. Will move east pushing a cold
front across the area on Tuesday. A good chance of showers and
storms are expected ahead and along the front by afternoon as the
airmass destabilizes. Marginal instability along with deep shear
of 35-45 knots may result in isolated strong to severe storms.
Rain will come to an end Tuesday evening as the cold front pushes
south of the area. High pressure will build to the north of the
area behind the front on Wednesday advecting in a cooler and drier
air mass. Above normal temperatures ahead of the front will fall
to near average levels Tuesday night through Wednesday night.
Long term [Thursday through Sunday]
Another digging upper trough will move into the plains by late
week which will bring moisture and rain chances back to SE ga ne|
fl. Models continue to differ with the evolution and movement of
this system so forecast confidence is low given the model spread.
Consensus shows rain chances continuing through the weekend with
temperatures at or above average.
[through 06z Tuesday]
patchy fog possible for some of the inland tafs this morning with
MVFR possible until about 12z. Otherwise, increasing cloudiness
is expected through the day with increasing chances of showers and
an isolated thunderstorm for the northeast fl tafs. Timing of the
showers looks to be after 17z for kgnv and ksgj and then after
20z for jax metro tafs. Chances of MVFR with CIGS and vsby will be
possible with this activity. A few storms look to get going
around the same time frames but highest chances look to be at
kgnv and ksgj at this time. Precip chances will diminish after
about 01z-03z time frame. Winds will increase from the east to
southeast 10 kt or less today and then become south-southeast
No headlines at this time as warm front lifts up through the area
waters during the day and evening hours. Showers likely and a few
storms this afternoon and into the evening hours. The next cold front
will pass through the waters late Tuesday into Tuesday night.
Brief scec and possible SCA conditions late Tuesday night into wed
in the wake of the cold front. High pressure north of the area
Thursday and stalled front to the south will maintain moderate
onshore winds and rough seas. Another front approaches the area
late Friday and winds expected to gradually veer to the southeast.
Rip currents: a low to moderate risk is anticipated today due to
light easterly swell activity and onshore flow.

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.
