Update... The isolated showers and thunderstorms that were
forecast across our northwest zones early this evening never
entered into the area as they stayed just to the north, and have
since dissipated. Sent out a quick update to the public zone
product to remove mention of any precipitation for the remainder
of tonight. 22

00z issuance...VFR conditions the next 24 hrs. A large upper
level low pressure system over the gulf favors a continuation in
scattered to broken high level cirrus streaming westward over the
central gulf coast. A mostly light northeast wind at mob and bfm
continues tonight while at pns, light southeast winds become
northeast overnight. A few shra, moving westward this evening
over the interior, expected to stay north of the terminals. 10
prev discussion... Issued 359 pm cdt Sat sep 14 2019
near term now through Sunday ... An easterly low to mid level flow
pattern will continue across the central gulf coast region tonight
and Sunday on the southern periphery of a deep layer ridge of high
pressure extending eastward across the tennessee valley and the
eastern seaboard. Moisture will remain a little more enhanced over
interior portions of southwest al and southeast ms this afternoon,
where precipitable water values will range between 1.6" and 1.8" per
the latest rap model guidance. A weak impulse moving west-
southwestward toward central and interior southwest al may aid in
the development of isolated showers or thunderstorms over interior
portions of the forecast area late this afternoon into early this
evening, and will maintain a ~15% pop over these areas through early
evening. A brief shower or storm may also develop along the
seabreeze near the coast through around 7 pm or so. Clouds gradually
decrease late tonight and overnight lows should range from around 70
degrees to the lower 70s inland, with mid to upper 70s along the
immediate coast. Upper ridging will tend to build farther into
central portions of ms al on Sunday. A more subsident airmass
underneath this feature may tend to preclude convective development,
although an isolated shower or storm cannot be entirely ruled out,
especially near the coast along the seabreeze. Highs should range in
the lower to mid 90s. 21
short term Sunday night through Tuesday night ... A large upper
ridge extending from the southeast states to across the plains
remains in place over the region while the northern portion
advances into the eastern states. Tropical storm humberto will be
initially located approximately 225 miles east of jacksonville,
florida then continues further off into the western atlantic
through Tuesday night. A surface ridge remains in place over the
eastern states through the period, which along with the western
fringe of humberto's circulation will promote a light northerly
surface flow over the area. Subsidence associated with the upper
ridge will maintain dry conditions over the forecast area and also
contribute to above seasonable daytime temperatures. Highs will
be mostly in the mid 90s on Monday followed by mid to upper 90s
on Tuesday. Lows will generally range from the lower 70s inland
to the mid 70s at the coast. A low risk of rip currents is
expected through the period. 29
long term Wednesday through Saturday ... An upper ridge will be
in place over the eastern states and into the south central states
through Saturday. A surface ridge strengthens from the mid
atlantic coast into the southeast states through the period, which
causes a transition from a light northerly surface flow on
Wednesday to an easterly flow on Thursday. This is what's known as
a back-door cold front, but despite the name only brings somewhat
of a respite to the hot temperatures. This feature will be
sufficient to produce isolated to possibly scattered showers and
storms over much of the area on Thursday, but otherwise dry
conditions prevail. Highs on Wednesday will be in the mid to upper
90s then highs each following day will be in the lower 90s. Lows
Wednesday night range from the lower 70s inland to the mid 70s at
the coast, then the following nights will see mid to upper 60s
inland ranging to the lower 70s near the coast. 29
marine... A ridge of high pressure will extend southwestward along
the northern gulf through the remainder of the weekend, resulting in
a continued light to moderate easterly wind flow over the marine
area. Small craft may need to exercise caution again offshore late
tonight into Sunday. A light to occasionally moderate east to
northeast flow will prevail at night and early in the morning Monday
before becoming light onshore by Monday afternoon. Seas remain
elevated between 2-4 feet near shore and 3-5 feet offshore through
Sunday, before gradually subsiding into early next week. 21

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.
