Aviation
After some very light drainage flow early this morning, by 15z, ne
wind at around 10 kt will prevail through sunset, before
diminishing. The exception will be naples where a wnw gulf breeze
will impact the area roughly between 18 and 3z.VFR conditions
prevail with no rainfall anticipated.

discussion...

today-tonight: high pressure over the atlantic will build south and
west today as a surface low meanders well east of florida and the
bahamas. Subsidence around this low will bring in a drier airmass
across south florida, which in combination with lighter east-
northeast winds, look to limit atlantic shower development.

Overall, expect a dry and partly cloudy day, with some increase in
clouds along the gulf coast late day where the seabreezes
collide.

Highs will range from around 80 along the east coast to the low-mid
80s for the gulf coast and interior. Overnight lows ranging from the
upper 50s to upper 60s.

Tuesday-Thursday: weak surface high settles overhead through mid-
week along with ridging aloft. The result will be a period of
tranquil and dry weather across south florida under light east-
southeast flow. Temperatures will be a few degrees above normal,
especially for the interior which will be unlikely to see either
the gulf or east coast breezes. Highs will be in the low to mid
80s for east and gulf coasts, and upper 80s to near 90 for the
interior. Lows will generally be in the 60s.

Late week: upper level low and associated surface low and front is
forecast to move through the oh/tn valleys and into the east coast
late week, breaking down the ridge over the fl peninsula. This
feature looks to bring in the next potential for rain across south
florida as the trailing front moves through the state late Friday
and into the weekend.

Marine... More favorable boating conditions can be expected through
much of the week as high pressure builds into the region. East-
northeast winds 10-15 knots today will become more southeasterly by
late Tuesday at 10 knots or less. The gulf coast breeze is expected
each afternoon bringing winds around to the west-northeast along the
coast. Seas 2-3ft in the atlantic and 2ft or less in the gulf.

The next marine concerns may begin Friday as southeasterly flow
strengthens to 15-20 knots ahead of an approaching frontal
boundary.

Beach forecast... Though a 1-2ft ene swell may linger along the
palm beach county coast, subsiding easterly flow should allow the
rip current risk along the atlantic beaches to decrease to
moderate today. The rip current risk will continue to decrease
further heading into midweek as seas decrease further and winds
become light.

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.
