Discussion
Isolated showers are occurring over the gulf of mexico early this
morning and there is a slight chance of showers developing across
the atlantic waters as well as the east coast metro areas. An area
of high pressure will continue to dominate the weather across
south florida today and through the early portion of the week.

This will allow for an east to southeasterly flow to continue as
well. The area of high pressure will help to limit convection
across the region today due to the drier air mass in place.

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are still possible
with the greatest chances occurring over the interior sections
during the afternoon hours. High temperatures this afternoon will
remain on the warm side across the region as they will reach the
upper 80s across the east coast metro areas to the lower 90s
across interior and west coast sections.

As the later portion of the week approaches, both of the GFS and
the ECMWF are showing a trough moving into the eastern portion of
the country. This will help to move a cold front down into the
florida peninsula. The latest guidance continues to diverge with
the timing of the cold front and how far south it actually gets
before dissipating. Behind the first front, another cold front
tries to move into the region later in the weekend and into early
next week. Confidence is still not high enough to forecast a cool
down for south florida as the latest guidance is still in
disagreement on whether or not these fronts will make it this far
south. This will continued to be monitored as the week
progresses. For now though, summerlike temperatures and the threat
of showers and thunderstorms on most days remains.

Marine
An area of high pressure will continue to provide an east to
southeasterly wind flow across the atlantic and gulf coastal
waters through the middle portion of the week. Wind speeds today
will generally range between 10 and 15 knots. Isolated to
scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible across the local
waters each day. Winds and waves could be higher in and around any
shower or thunderstorm.

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.
