Discussion
Water vapor imagery reveals tropical depression cindy moving
northeast into the mississippi river valley. Across the western
caribbean, a tutt is racing west into central america. This tutt
has successfully enhanced convection along its eastern flank
throughout the afternoon. This morning's RAOB analyses indicate
rising heights at all mandatory levels, sans 200 mb. The
subtropical ridge is building west across the florida peninsula,
and yet the northern reaches of the tutt appear to be depressing
heights in the upper troposphere. East to southeast winds average
12 to 18 knots at the available marine observation platforms.

Temperatures have reached 90 at most locations and dewpoints are
in the upper 70s. Skies are mostly sunny and showers have been
isolated.

Forecast
An anticyclonic gyre will continue to develop over the western
north atlantic tonight. The surface ridge axis reaches west
across the florida peninsula, and will maintain its position for
the next several days. Thus, we can expect moderate breezes,
undulations in moisture, and seasonal high and low temperatures.

The forecast calls for 20 percent (slight) rain chances through
Saturday night. The consensus from statistical guidance continues
to increase rain chances to 30 percent by Sunday or Monday,
consistent with an evolution towards more mesoscale forcing.

Therefore, we close out the forecast with the inherited 30 percent
rain chances. Winds will likely diminish Monday and Tuesday as the
ridge axis fractures.

Marine
Small craft should exercise caution across the extreme
southeastern gulf of mexico, including the dry tortugas, and also
across the straits of florida due to east to southeast winds 15 to
20 knots.

From synopsis, a ridge of high pressure will stretch west across
the florida peninsula tonight through Sunday, resulting in
moderate east to southeast breezes across the coastal waters of
the florida keys. Breezes will surge across the distant straits of
florida each afternoon, then diminish slowly after midnight. The
ridge axis may degrade on Monday or Tuesday, allowing breezes to
diminish across all coastal waters.

Aviation
Vfr conditions will continue tonight for both eyw and mth
terminals. Southeast winds of 10 to 15 knots with gusts near 20
knots will continue through the overnight hours, decreasing a few
knots during the early morning hours.

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.
