Marine Weather and Tides
Homestead Base, FL

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Update
Convection is starting to develop along the atlantic sea breeze
this morning. Adjusted the rainfall chances to show a more gradual
increasing trend through midday. Updated zones have been
transmitted to show this change in expected forecast trend.

Otherwise the forecast philosophy of the previous shift is on
track and no additional updates are anticipated in the afternoon.

Have a great Sunday!

light flow will pick up out of the east southeast as the morning
continues. Shower and thunderstorm activity expected to start over
the atlantic, push across the east coast terminals, and spread
inland. By late morning, the gulf sea breeze will push around apf
with a chance for showers and thunderstorms. Coverage will
increase in the afternoon and evening. Sub-vfr conditions with
gusty variability possible with convection... Short-fused
amendments may be necessary.

today and tonight: high pressure in the northeast gulf of mexico
will allow wind flow to become southeasterly today. Plenty of
moisture remains over the region with pwat values around 2 inches,
allowing showers and thunderstorms to develop. The change will be
the steering flow the past few days have been west to east. Today
with southeast flow storm will begin along the east coast seabreeze
with storms over the east coast metro in the midday afternoon hours
before activity will shift towards the interior and gulf coast later
in the afternoon and evening with convection concentrating along
sea breeze and outflow boundary interactions. A warmer airmass aloft
with the freezing level around 15,000 feet will limit any hail
threat across the area today. Main concern with thunderstorm
activity will be gusty winds with boundary interactions and
lightning. Local ponding of water from heavy downpours on roadways
may lead to nuisance flooding. During the overnight hours activity
will be focused over the waters with some isolated showers and
storms drifting over the coastal regions of the east coast.

Temperatures today will be right around 90 normal for this time of
year with lows tonight in the mid to upper 70s across south florida.

This week: we will be in the same summertime pattern through much
of the weak with a weak ridge to our north. Wind will be
generally out of the east southeast through the week. Activity
will be sea breeze and outflow boundary driven with activity
beginning along the east coast in afternoon shifting to the
interior and gulf coast. The diurnal pattern with showers and
storms over land during the day and over the local waters each
night. Towards the end of the week another saharan air layer
(sal) working its way across the atlantic and caribbean could move
into south florida. For now have left pops around summer diurnal
climo but will monitor the sal progression throughout the week.

High temperatures in the extended will be around normal for the east
coast around 90 degrees. However, middle to late week the gulf coast
temps will be slightly above average with heat index values
greater than 105 degrees for much west coast.

Marine... Southeasterly to easterly wind flow through the week.

Showers and thunderstorms are possible each day across all south
florida waters. Seas will be generally 2 feet or less. Locally
higher seas and gusty winds are possible with any gusty showers or
thunderstorms that may occur.

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.
