Discussion
Tonight and Thursday: the convection currently ongoing this
afternoon across portions of the area will diminish later this
evening, with dry weather expected overnight. Lows tonight will
generally be in the lower to middle 70s. Patchy fog will be
possible towards morning mainly for areas that received rainfall.

For Thursday, southerly moist flow will continue to increase
moisture across the area, with pwats climbing above 2.0 inches over
most of the area. Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms
are likely with high temperatures around 90 degrees. With the better
coverage of showers and storms expected Thursday, heat index values
should remain below criteria for any mention of heat stress in the
hwo. 27
Friday through Tuesday: while there is some trough ridge movement
in the northern half of the us, the pattern remains consistent
over our region. A ridge continues to hold over the southern us,
fostering weak onshore flow which is bringing in ample moisture
from the gulf of mexico. Two inch pws will remain socked in to the
region throughout the weekend. While this moisture will keep
conditions humid, it also means more cloud cover and more rainfall
and, therefore, temperatures will also be slightly "cooler" for
the end of august. Normal high temperatures for this time of year
are around 92f. Highs this weekend will be between 88f-91f.

Widespread afternoon convection is expected daily. With this
convection and with these kinds of pws in place, any shower will
be capable of producing some very efficient rainfall. Flash
flooding is not expected due to the peak of growing season but
areas that consistently see heavy rainfall each day may see some
isolated flooding. By Sunday, some slight troughing will begin to
affect the area... Though to the untrained eye, there will be no
changes to the weather. Conditions will still be hot and humid
with afternoon showers. As the shortwave trough shifts east of the
area by Tuesday, rain chances will finally drop a bit. Aw

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.
