Today ... Clearing and Cold ... Clear for the Eclipse
A cold front swept through the region overnight dropping more than a half inch of rain and now strong WNW winds are blowing over the area. Winds today will be gusting over 30 mph at times. Check out the FORECAST WINDS for your area. This will also cause what is known as a 'Blow Out' Tide between 1 and 2 pm today with tide levels around -2 feet. Temperatures will be steady or slowly dropping today from the low to mid 50s in the morning and early afternoon to the mid 40s by sunset and then bottom out around freezing overnight. See the FORECAST TEMPERATURES for your area. The wind will slow diminish during the night, but will be enough to generate a wind chill value in the mid 20s at times. See the FEELS LIKE TEMPERATURE for your area. The sky will clear during the day with a totally clear sky for the total lunar eclipse.

Heads-Up ... With the upcoming Full Super Moon and strong northwesterly winds Sunday, there is a good probability of what is known as a 'Blow Out' tide Sunday around 1:30 pm with low tides near -2 feet. Check your mooring lines to account for the very low water expected then. Winds will shift to the NE Monday night & Tuesday pushing the tide higher. Tides will be very high and most likely will rise above the flood level of 9.3 feet at Ft. Pulaski Tuesday morning, evening and Wednesday morning.

Sky Will Be Clear for the Total Lunar Eclipse:
This Sunday, there will be a total eclipse of the moon and we are in just about the best area for viewing. During the event, as the moon enters its totality phase, the shade of the moon will turn a dark "Blood" red. This will last from 11:41 pm until 12:43 am as the moon then will be nearly directly overhead. The eclipse will begin a little after 10:30 pm when the moon is high in the ESE Sky and end shortly before 2:00 am in the WSW sky. The weather conditions for our area will be clear and cold. It will be breezy with wind chill values in the mid 20s, so bundle up if you plan to be outside for awhile. I plan to record it as well and will be posting pictures on FB and this website during the event.
