Discussion
Deep-layer ridging rooted in central america reaches northeast
into the southeastern united states. Remarkably high mid-level
heights persist over northern fl and southern ga al ms. The
surface anticyclone stretches west across northern florida and
supports fresh easterly breezes across the florida keys. Limited
moisture, significant low-level inhibtion, and mainly anticyclonic
low- level streamlines have precluded precipitation and cloud
cover across the island chain. Temperatures are in the upper 80s
with dewpoints near 70.

Forecast
Very little change to the pattern and forecast reasoning tonight
through Tuesday. Deep-layer ridging will persist, although a
subtle southwesterly displacement of the mid-level heights
towards the northern gulf of mexico is expected. Moisture channel
imagery highlights an anticyclonic wave break and a weakness in
the overall ridging over cuba and the western caribbean, co-
located with vorticity maxima at all the cimms analysis levels.

This feature will erode by Tuesday night, allowing the subtropical
ridge to build southward across hispaniola and cuba. This will
open-up the low- level tap to deepening tropical moisture and a
return to mid 70s surface dewpoints. And yet, mid- level
subsidence and dry air will battle the decreasing static stability
associated with the warming and moistening of the low levels. We
highlight nearly nil rain chances tonight through Tuesday,
followed by near normal (10-25%) slight rain chances through the
remainder of the forecast period. Through-it-all, moderate to
fresh, east to southeasterly breezes will peak and lull. Overnight
lows will trend slightly higher as surface winds take-on a more
southeasterly fetch. The inherited seven-day forecast is on track
and needs no adjustments.

Marine
High pressure centered just to the west of bermuda supports fresh
easterly breezes across the coastal waters of the florida keys.

Although this system will settle southward over the next few days,
periods of moderate to fresh, east to southeasterly breezes will
be maintained through the forecast period.

Aviation
Vfr and gusty easterly breezes will prevail at the eyw and mth
terminals through the evening.

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.
