Aside from the possibility of isolated showers over our coastal waters, no rain is expected for the area tonight. Deep layer ridging will continue to build through the weekend, leaving us with another cool and clear night. Lows will be in the mid to upper 60s, low 70s along the immediate coastline.

[Through 00Z Saturday] A brief period of MVFR visibility is expected at VLD before sunrise sunrise. Showers and thunderstorms will be spreading northward from the Gulf of Mexico from the late morning through afternoon hours. Overall coverage of storms will be pretty high and warranted an explicit mention in the TAFs. MVFR conditions will be possible in the convection.

.Short Term [Tonight Through Saturday]... A weak tropical wave is forecast to lift north across the Gulf of Mexico on Friday, pushing well inland by late Saturday. With a ridge building aloft over the region through the weekend, the best lift associated with the wave will likely be west of the forecast area. However, expect to see deep layer moisture increase from south to north across the area during the day on Friday, with higher rain chances primarily over the southern half of the area. The deep moisture will remain in place through Saturday, with good chance to likely PoPs in the forecast once again. Temperatures will vary from north to south on Friday, with higher max temps across Georgia/Alabama where PoPs will be lower (lower 90s vs. mid 90s). With more widespread coverage on Saturday, high temps should only reach the lower 90s everywhere. .Long Term [Saturday Night Through Thursday]... Medium range guidance is all in good agreement that deep layer ridging will dominate over the southeastern states through much of next week. Without a source of deep moisture in place, PoPs will remain below climo, with temperatures continuing to run above normal. .Marine... Winds will turn to the southeast tonight and then south on Friday as a weak tropical wave moves northward across the Gulf of Mexico. The onshore flow, which should remain below 15 knots, will continue into early next week. .Fire Weather... Increasing moisture with higher relative humidity values will return beginning Friday. No fire weather at least through the upcoming weekend. .Hydrology... Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected Friday and Saturday. Some locally heavy rainfall amounts are possible, but widespread heavy rain does not look likely. There are no flooding concerns at this time since river levels are already very low due to a drier than average summer.
