SHORT TERM /Today through Monday/. As Tropical Storm Beta moves west in the northern Gulf of Mexico, moisture streaming over portions of south and central Georgia brining light showers across far southern portions of forecast area. Models in good agreement that energy aloft will get cut off by late morning as the upper level trough across the eastern U.S. shifts further east allowing ridging to begin to build into the area. This will set up a dry weather pattern through the rest of the forecast period with temperatures up to 10 degrees below normal.
LONG TERM /Monday Night through Saturday/. The beginning of the long term period continues to be quiet, with below normal temperatures and dry conditions into Wednesday as High pressure dominates along the eastern seaboard.
There will be much uncertainty with the forecast after Wednesday due to Tropical Storm Beta and where it will eventually move to or will it's moisture have an effect on the forecast area. The current NHC forecast has Beta hitting the TX coast late Monday to early Tuesday then taking a turn to the east and moving to the lower MS valley late Thursday as a much weaker post tropical depression. This likely means that Beta's overall impacts will be minimal.
Shower chances increase on Thursday as moisture associated with the remains of Beta move to the area. After Thursday, models are differing with handing an upper level low/trough over the middle to eastern third of the U.S. and associated moisture through the rest of the long term. 20 to 40 percent pops Friday through Saturday are very much the NBM pops.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.
