Marine Weather and Tides
Cutler Bay, 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
Most of the earlier thunderstorm activity has weakened or
dissipated, at least the activity over land. Overnight, scattered
clusters of thunderstorms should be over the atlantic waters. From
time to time, a few of these may move over east coast areas before
dissipating. Rain chances are lower tonight for areas farther
inland. Made some minor adjustments to pops for this update.

Otherwise, there are just some minor adjustments to the other
variables to take into account the latest data.

the winds will remain light and variable tonight before going
easterly around 5 to 10 knots on Sunday at most of the TAF sites.

The only exception is at kapf TAF site, where the winds will
become westerly after 18z on Sunday. There could still be some
showers around until 03 04z, then mostly dry conditions through
rest of tonight. On Sunday, vcts from 15z through 18 19z, then
vcsh until 00z for east coast TAF sites. Kapf vcsh from 14z till
18z, then vcts. Ceiling and vis inVFR conditions outside of any
showers or thunderstorms where they could fall into MVFR or even
ifr conditions.

discussion...

weak surface ridging and ample moisture over the area today has
led to light winds along with numerous thunderstorms. The storms
formed along both sea breezes during the late morning and midday
hours. Although both sea breezes continued inland, the storms
remained nearly stationary a short distance inland from both
coasts through early afternoon. Since that time, the storms have
pulsed up and down and shifted locations as boundary collisions
have been occurring through the afternoon. During the late
afternoon hours, expect greater coverage over the northern two-
thirds of south fl compared to far southern areas.

Sunday, a surface high over the northeastern gulf will turn the
winds over south fl to be from the southeast Sunday through Tuesday.

This will keep ample moisture over the region, with pwats averaging
around 2.0-2.2 inches. Showers and storms are likely each afternoon.

Storm motion will be east to west, or southeast to northwest.

Expect a chance of midday storms closer to east coast and interior,
with more storms interior to gulf coast later in the day. Scattered
nighttime storms will be possible over the atlantic and gulf waters
with isolated activity possible along the east coast.

The pattern does not really change much for the middle to latter
portion of next week. Weak ridging will still generally be located
to our north. This should keep the 500mb temps on the warm side,
and allow the weather to be mainly sea breeze dominated for the
week. The general wind is forecast to remain out of the southeast
for the rest of the week. Showers and thunderstorms are forecast
each day for the afternoons across south florida. Basically, the
typical summertime pattern of diurnal showers and storms over the
mainland and some nocturnal activity over the coastal waters each
night.

During the middle of next week, we could be looking at heat index
values in the 105-108 range for areas near the gulf coast.

Marine...

very light winds are expected for all waters through tonight,
except in near thunderstorms. Beginning Sunday, a general
southeast wind is expected for the remainder of the week. Showers
and thunderstorms will be possible through the week. Seas are
forecast to run up to around 2 feet, with locally rough seas under
gusty showers and thunderstorms. Also, with a light wind field in
the mornings, and then with any convection in the afternoon,
along with boundary collisions, waterspouts will continue to be
possible.

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.
