Take the Weather with You is the twenty-sixth studio album by American singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, released on RCA Records on October 10, 2006. It peaked at #1 on Billboard's country charts, also reaching #4 on the "Billboard 200". 10 of the 14 songs on the album are covers - the second most Buffett has ever done on an album.

The song "Breathe In, Breathe out, Move On" was written for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. The song "Bama Breeze" was a homage to the beach-front bars that dotted the coast before they were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, and at the end of the music video a message confirms this fact. The songs "Party at the End of the World" and "Bama Breeze" were tour names in 2006 and 2007, respectively. The album is the first since Christmas Island in which the title track was not written or co-written by Buffett.
