Aviation
Vfr conditions are expected to continue through the next 24 hours
at all TAF sites. Easterly to southeasterly winds will decrease
to 5 to 10 knots tonight, then increase again to around 15 knots
on Friday.

Update
Latest observations and satellite imagery shows a few to scattered
clouds across south florida with southeast winds around 10 to 15
mph and a few gusts around 20 mph. Winds will begin to diminish
this evening and remain light overnight. There is a chance for
patchy to areas of fog to develop tonight especially over the
interior and west after midnight. Small changes were done to the
forecast to reflect the latest observations.

Prev discussion /issued 344 pm edt Thu apr 27 2017/
discussion...

high pressure over the atlantic waters will build over the fl
peninsula through the end of the week with broad surface high
also strengthening the pressure gradient through the weekend.

Southerly winds around 15 mph will remain through the rest of
the afternoon across the area with temperatures continuing to
warm up reaching the low 90s interior and mid/upper 80s along
the coastal areas. Tonight, southerly flow continues becoming
light along the west and interior under clear skies tonight.

This could cause reduce visibilities under patchy areas of fog
to develop after midnight especially eastern collier and hendry
counties.

The winds increase and shift southeast this weekend as pressure
gradient strengthens across south florida. Expect breezy and dry
conditions this weekend as dry airmass will make its way into
the area this weekend. High temperatures once again will remain
close to 10 degrees above average Friday with naples near setting
a new record high. Warm and dry trend continues through the
weekend with temperatures remaining near normal along the east
coast while temps could reach the 90s along the western counties.

There will only be silent 10 percent pops over the interior areas
for this afternoon with less than 10 percent over the metro areas.

Strong pressure system develops over the desert southwest and
drifts east across the central plains this weekend. Through
associated with this system will push through the region early
next week enhancing the chance of showers and possible isolated
thunder Monday and tue. Front associated with this system will
stall over central florida keeping a light to moderate east to
southeast flow with low level moisture remaining over the region
mid week. This will enhance some potential for showers to develop
through the end of the week.

Marine...

southerly winds should remain around 10 to 15 knots through the
end of the week with seas less than 4 feet. Gradient strengthens
through the weekend increasing winds to scec conditions and seas
around 4 to 5 feet. Some showers could be possible Friday with
those chances lowering this weekend. Increase in moisture into
early next week will enhance showers over the coastal waters
through mid week.

Aviation...

the winds will remain easterly this afternoon into tonight, as
wind speeds will be between 10 to 15 knots this afternoon
decreasing to 5 to 10 knots tonight. The only exception to this is
at kapf where the wind direction will be westerly this afternoon
before going light and variable tonight. The ceiling and vis will
also remain theVFR conditions through tonight. There could be a
shower or two over northeastern areas of south florida this
afternoon, but the coverage will be few and far between to mention
it in the TAF sites. Therefore, the TAF sites will remain dry
through tonight.

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.
