Discussion
Mid to upper level ridging over the eastern united states supports
an impressive anticyclone centered over the extreme western north
atlantic. East to southeast breezes have freshened, agitating the
land-side palm trees, and supporting sustained winds around 17
knots along the reef tract, gusts frequently have reached 25
knots. Temperatures are near 80 with dewpoints approaching 70.

Rain chances today are 20 percent, with rain chances increasing to
60 percent tonight. The forecast is on track and needs no
adjustments.

Marine
Small craft advisory in effect for the straits of florida due to
east to southeast winds near 20 knots and seas as high as 7 feet.

Small craft advisories likely will be required tonight for all
coastal waters of the florida keys. From synopsis, a ridge of
high pressure will extend across the southeastern united states
today through Thursday night. This ridge will begin to shift
southward Friday and Friday night. Breezes may begin to diminish
Saturday or Sunday.

Aviation
Vfr and gusty east to southeast breezes will prevail this
afternoon at the eyw and mth terminals. Recent radar trends
indicate less chances for brief MVFR encounters, as shower
coverage has decreased. However, upstream satellite derived
moisture products and forecast soundings indicate rain chances
returning to the terminals overnight. We have included tempo MVFR
episodes in the tafs, which may need to be extended towards 12z.

Key watches warnings advisories
Fl... None.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
