Discussion
Currently - an atlantic surface ridge extends across florida into
the gulf of mexico. This is responsible for gentle to moderate
east to southeast breezes across the florida keys and surrounding
area. This mornings sounding indicated a moist boundary layer with
a subsidence inversion based around 775 mb. A decent layer of dry
air is present above the inversion level. With that said, there is
enough forcing for isolated to scattered showers. Most of this
activity is present across the florida straits, with a few
traversing the island chain, into the adjacent gulf and bay side.

Short term update - gentle to moderate east breezes will continue
this afternoon with the ridge holding to our north. Rain chances
will be slight to low chance with very little potential for
thunderstorms. Expect seasonably warm and humid conditions under
mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. For now no update to the
local forecast is planned.

Marine
A surface ridge stretching across the florida peninsula will keep
moderate east to southeast breezes across keys waters. The
highest winds will be found over the florida straits, where a
caution is in effect. An advisory may be required this evening due
to the usual late afternoon through evening surge that occurs on
this sort of east southeast flow.

Aviation
Vfr conditions prevailing for most of the day with the exception of
very brief showers that could reduce the visibility at either of the
terminals. Southeast winds near 10 knots with gusts up to 20 knots
expected through the afternoon and overnight hours.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
