Aviation
[through 12z Tuesday] a few areas of MVFR ceilings early this
morning are expected to becomeVFR later this morning.VFR
conditions are expected to prevail afterwards for the remainder of
the day, although mid-level cloud cover will gradually be
increasing.

Prev discussion [242 am edt]
Near term [through today]
The combination of a stalled frontal boundary and increasing
moisture with weak upper disturbances approaching the area will
allow for the possibility of isolated showers and thunderstorms to
develop today. However, rain chances will remain low (around 20
percent or less today) until greater upper level forcing arrives
starting late tonight. Afternoon high temperatures today will
generally be in the 80s.

Short term [tonight through Wednesday]
In the upper levels, near zonal flow will be over the region until a
trough moves in on Wednesday. At the surface, a stalled frontal
boundary will linger over the region until a cold front moves
through on Wednesday. Chances for rain and thunder will increase
tonight. The best chance for showers and thunderstorms will be
tomorrow through Wednesday evening with pops up to 80 percent. Skies
will be mostly cloudy. Highs will be mainly in the 80s with upper
70s in the northernmost counties. Lows will be in the 60s and lower
70s.

Long term [Wednesday night through Monday]
In the upper levels, a trough will remain over the southeast until a
ridge builds in on Friday. At the surface, cold, dry air will move
in behind the front on Wednesday night. Wet weather may return by
the weekend as another low pressure system approaches. The best
chance for rain will be Saturday and Sunday. Highs will be in the
70s on Thursday. Highs will return to the 80s by Friday or Saturday.

Lows will be in the 50s.

Marine
Light southeasterly winds will increase slightly by tomorrow.

Moderate winds will be southwesterly by tomorrow night. Moderate
winds will become northerly as a cold front moves through on
Wednesday.

Fire weather
A cold front is expected to bring the first widespread rainfall in
over a month across the area from Tuesday into Wednesday. Behind the
front, a dry airmass is expected for Thursday and Friday, but
relative humidity values are expected to stay above red flag
levels.

Hydrology
River levels are low. Rain chances will increase tonight but the
best chance for rain will be tomorrow through Wednesday evening.

Forecast rainfall totals range from 0.25-0.5 in the fl big bend to 1
to 3 inches in parts of SE alabama and SW georgia. With ongoing
drought conditions, flooding is not a concern.

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.
