discussion...

strong deep high pressure remains well in control of the region,
which remains in place through at least the middle of next week.

Current light winds will turn more NE and increase a little on
Sunday as pressure gradients become tighter.

Temperatures will continue to gradually climb back to near normal
values, with afternoon highs reaching the low 80s during the next
couple of days. Model solutions show little to no chances o rain
until mid week, with maybe some slight chances of rain Wednesday
afternoon. Morning lows also gradually warm up into the upper
60s low 70s by mid week.

In general, beautiful and benign south florida weather expected
to continue through the forecast period. Enjoy!
marine...

ne winds increasing to 15-20kt will bring higher seas, 3 to 5
feet in the gulf stream by Sunday morning, then down to 2 to 3
feet early next week. Winds increase tonight to near advisory
criteria by late this evening. At least small craft should
exercise caution if boating in the south florida atlantic waters
tonight and possibly tomorrow.

This increase in wind may also bring a moderate risk of rip
currents for at least the next several days for the atlantic
coast, especially around miami beach, as the wind is forecast to
be stronger to the south.

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.
