discussion...

the cold front that brought convection across the region has pushed
through and cleared the area overnight. Today winds will veer west
to northwesterly with drier air and cooler air beginning to filter
down the peninsula. A much cooler day over south florida compared to
the upper 80s and 90 degree temperatures yesterday. Highs today will
be in the upper 70s to around 80 degrees.

Tonight, clear skies and cooler air behind the front will allow much
cooler overnight lows. Low temperatures will be in the low to mid
50s over the interior to low to mid 60s along both the west and east
coast.

The rest of the weekend into next week high pressure builds across
the region and dominates with a relatively quiet and benign weather
pattern for much of the week. Temperatures will be below normal to
end the weekend. As winds become easterly a gradual warming trend
throughout the week back to normal temperatures, with highs back in
the mid 80s by mid-week.

By the end of the week next week the warm and humid air will return
as another front will approach the region with rain chances
increasing to end the week into next weekend.

Marine...

behind the frontal passage, winds have begun to veer westerly to
northwesterly. A small craft advisory is in effect for offshore
gulf waters through this evening with seas of 5 to 7 feet. Winds
and seas will continue to gradually diminish as high pressure
builds towards the end of the weekend into early next week.

Beach forecast...

there is a high risk of rip currents at the gulf coast
beaches through this evening. The coastal flood statement for the
gulf coast was cancelled as tidal gauges and water levels have
dropped below threshold for any impacts.

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.
