Vfr conditions will prevail throughout the forecast period. Winds
will remain out of the southeast through the overnight hours
across all terminals between 5 and 10 knots. Winds are then
expected to increase once again out of the southeast by the later
portion of Friday morning to near 15 knots. At kapf, a west coast
sea breeze will develop Friday afternoon shifting the winds to
the southwest.

discussion...

the remnants of cindy are pushing into the lower mississippi river
valley this afternoon as atlantic high pressure digs into much of
the peninsula of florida. Drier air continues to hold over the
region along with the deep-layered high pressure. As cindy's
moisture is absorbed into an approaching trough, a frontal
boundary will develop over the lower tennessee valley into the
mid-atlantic over the weekend and begin to approach the region
late in the weekend into early next week.

As the frontal boundary approaches south florida Monday into
Tuesday, moisture begins to rebound with increasing shower and
thunderstorm chances. The frontal boundary has some mid-level
support in the gfs, which has more defined front in the 12z
solution, while the ECMWF has a more diffused moisture boundary.

Either way, the available moisture, instability, and forcing
should see a return to rain and storms for our area.

In the extended, the model solutions begin to diverge as the ecmwf
starts building in a ridge at the mid to upper levels while the
gfs holds the ridge back through the end of the week. The
return of moisture will help usher back in a rainy season pattern
that could bring heavy rain threats back starting near the end of
the weekend.

Marine...

southeasterly to easterly flow will continue through the weekend
over the waters. Overnight, conditions in the outer waters will
push scec criteria with improvement expected on Friday morning.

Overnight scec surges over the coming days cannot be ruled out.

Next week, a frontal boundary will begin to near the region early
in the week which could create some hazards for mariners.

Beach forecast...

decided to continue with the high risk of rip currents for this
evening and extend through late Friday. The persistent
southeasterly flow has continued to create rip currents along
the atlantic beaches of south florida today and tomorrow will
still have many of the remnant conditions hanging around. Local
modeling underestimated today's rip current risk a tad and
tomorrow appears to be very similar in pattern. At best, atlantic
beaches may see a moderate risk of rip currents, but even that
elevated risk may be magnified by this week's rip current activity
and rising attendance as the weekend begins.

Prev discussion... Issued 154 pm edt Thu jun 22 2017
aviation...

vfr conds expected through the rest of this evening with few sct
low cumulus clouds, bases 2500 ft msl, passing along the east
coast TAF sites. SE winds, 10-15 kt, will continue through
23 0000z, decreasing there afternoon. Mostly dry conditions will
persist tonight with a few sct low clouds along the eastern
peninsula, bases near 3000 ft msl. SE winds will increase again
aft 23 1500z tomorrow morning.

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.
