Mostly dry conditions through early next week...

Discussion
Today through Friday night...

high pressure over the southern gulf of mexico will move east
across the florida keys today before moving into the bahamas
tonight, as a weak low pressure moves from the tennessee valley
southeast into the southeastern united states. This will keep a
southwest wind flow over south florida today along with dry
weather.

There could be a late day east coast sea breeze, but the sea
breeze will not push inland much. Therefore, high temperatures
today will range from the lower 80s over the west coast metro
areas of south florida to mid to upper 80s over the east coast
metro areas.

The high will dissipate over the bahamas on Friday as the weak low
moves northeast into the mid atlantic states. This will allow for
a weak cold front to move down the florida peninsula and through
south florida Friday night. This will keep the southwest flow over
the area and allow for some low level moisture to work into region
from the south. Therefore, a slight chance of showers will remain
in the forecast for Friday afternoon into Friday evening over
south florida. The atlantic waters could even a thunderstorm or
two Friday night due to the warm gulf waters.

Saturday and Sunday...

the front will continue to move southward away from south
florida, as high pressure builds into the area from the north.

This will allow for the return of a northerly wind flow along with
dry weather for south florida.

Extended forecast
The high will then move east while strengthening into the western
atlantic waters early to middle part of next week. This will
allow for a breezy to windy easterly wind flow to set up over
south florida as the dry weather continues to remain in place.

Marine
The winds will be south to southwest today into Friday with speeds
of 5 to 10 knots, except 10 to 15 knots this evening over the
atlantic waters. The winds will then become northerly early this
weekend before swinging to an easterly direction late this weekend
with speeds of 5 to 10 knots. The speeds will then increase to
breezy to even possibility of windy conditions early next week
from the easterly direction.

The seas will be 2 feet or less today through this weekend in both
the atlantic and gulf waters. The seas should then build to 4 to 6
feet in the atlantic waters early next week, with the gulf seas
building to 2 to 4 feet.

Fire weather
The relative humidities this afternoon and on Friday afternoon should
fall down into the lower to mid 30s over the eastern areas of
south florida. However, the 20 foot winds will remain below 15 mph
today and on Friday over south florida. Therefore, no fire weather
headlines will be needed for the area for today or on Friday.

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.
