Discussion
An area of high pressure will continue to dominate the weather
across south florida tonight and through Saturday as well. Dry
conditions will remain in place throughout the time frame. Low
temperatures tonight will drop into the lower 50s across the
northwestern interior sections to the mid 60s across the east
coast metro areas. Both of the GFS and the ECMWF continue to show
an area of low pressure moving up through the southeastern
portion of the country and into the mid atlantic on Saturday and
Saturday night. The associated cold front will move through south
florida on Saturday night into early Sunday morning. There will be
an increased chance of showers on Saturday night out ahead of the
cold front. Most of the dynamics and instability will remain to
the north of the area, however, there will still be a slight
chance of thunderstorms during this time frame.

Behind the cold front, another area of high pressure will build
into the region and it will bring drier and cooler conditions
along with it. At this point, the coldest night looks to be Sunday
night into Monday morning. Low temperatures during this time frame
will drop into the mid 30s across the northwestern interior
sections to the upper 40s across the east coast metro areas.

Mainly dry conditions are expected to remain in place through the
middle of the week. After that, the area of high pressure will
slide off to the east and both of the GFS and the ECMWF continue
to show another cold front moving into the area. These models are
still in some disagreement with the timing of this second front,
but we still have a week to keep an eye on things. For now, expect
an increase in rain chances along with another shot of cooler air
mid to late week next week.

Marine
East to southeasterly flow will continue across the atlantic and
gulf coastal waters tonight before starting to shift to a more
southerly direction on Saturday. Seas will remain on the low side
during this time frame, however, they are expected to increase on
Saturday night into Sunday as a cold front moves through the local
waters. Breezy northwest winds are expected across all waters in
the wake of the front on Sunday. A small craft advisory could be
required across both gulf and atlantic waters as early as Saturday
night.

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.
