AMZ400 Synopsis For Altamaha Sound Ga To Flagler Beach Fl Out To 60 Nm- 807 Pm Edt Thu Aug 22 2019
Synopsis.. Atlantic ridging extending its axis across the northeast florida waters tonight will slowly weaken and shift eastward as a tropical disturbance currently over the bahamas slowly organizes and moves northwestward towards the florida peninsula. This system will pivot northward and northeastward during the weekend, passing east of our local waters as it continues to gradually organize. Seas offshore may build slightly by Saturday night as this system makes its closest approach, but winds and seas will subside by early next week as this low pressure system accelerates northeastward away from the southeast u.s. Coast. Prevailing onshore winds this weekend will shift to southwesterly by Tuesday as a frontal boundary sinks southward towards the georgia waters.
Gulf stream.. The approximate location of the west wall of the gulf stream as of aug 22, 2019 at 1200 utc... 61 nautical miles east southeast of flagler beach. 72 nautical miles east of saint augustine beach. 84 nautical miles east of jacksonville beach. 92 nautical miles east of st simons island.

Update
No changes made to the forecast as much of the area has remained
precipitation free this evening. Only a few isolated showers have
formed along the sea-breeze as its pushed inland. With partly
cloudy skies, GOES derived total precipitable water reveals a
broad region of "dry" air from CAPE canaveral to brunswick, ga
(pwats 1.6-1.8 inches). This verifies well with this evening's
upper air balloon which observed a pwat of 1.76 inches. Under
mostly clear skies tonight, temperatures drop into the low to mid
70s with coastal areas remaining warm in the upper 70s. Some
patchy ground fog is possible tomorrow morning, but widespread
issues are not expected.

For tomorrow, expectations are very similar to today as the
tropical wave axis slowly moves in from the southeast. Section of
drier air observed via ua satellite is forecast to stay through
tomorrow before slowly eroding on Saturday.

Aviation
Not many changes made to 12z TAF package. Light easterly winds
continue into the evening with the east coast sea-breeze moving
inland.VFR conditions prevail until early morning hours where
some light ground fog is possible at area TAF sites.

Marine
Winds are around 10-15 knots this evening over area waters with
waves 1-2 feet. Over the next few days, an area of disorganized
showers and thunderstorms will move out of the bahamas and up the
florida coast. Odds are slowly increasing that organization into a tropical
system is possible. NHC recently increased 48 hour development
probability to 30% and 5-day probability to 50%.

Rip currents: low risk.

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.
