Discussion
This afternoon and tonight: frontal boundary is draped across the
north central peninsula this afternoon, pushing the ridge axis
further south into our region. With the axis overhead steering
flow is very light, with a little more southerly component than
the past few days. Scattered showers and storms are ongoing along
both seabreezes as they move inland this afternoon. Boundary
collisions, along with the collision of the seabreezes will
continue to drive development into the evening hours. Given the
light flow, storm movement will be minimal with heavy rain, gusty
winds, and lightning the main concerns. While most activity will
remain over the interior, outflow boundaries may drive a few
storms into either coast.

Convection dies late tonight with mesoscale models hinting at
landbreeze development leading to the development of showers and
storms over the water and adjacent land areas overnight.

Tuesday and Wednesday: upper level trough moving across the eastern
us erodes the northern side of the western atlantic ridge through
midweek. Low level front currently across north central florida will
slowly drop south through mid week, but as is usually the case this
time of year, washes out before it reaches lake okeechobee.

Prevailing flow will become more southwesterly, though fairly light
at 10kts or less, with a modest increase in mid level moisture and
slightly cooler temperatures aloft. All of the above will lead to a
higher coverage of showers and storms as we head into mid week. We
should see both seabreezes developing and moving inland, with the
best coverage during the late afternoons and evenings over the
interior with the seabreeze collision.

Thursday through upcoming weekend: remnant frontal boundary across
the fl peninsula washes out into late week across the state. Upper
level trough will exit the northeastern us as the upper level
extent of the western atlantic ridge rebuilds across florida. The
surface ridge behind the front across the mid atlantic will move
offshore and reinforce the western atlantic ridge, bringing a
return of prevailing deep easterly flow. This drier, more
subsident pattern will allow rain chances to drop closer to
seasonal norms for this time of year with afternoon convection
favoring interior and gulf coast areas as the east coast
seabreezes moves inland faster.

Marine Frontal boundary across north central florida will weaken
the western atlantic high, leaving light easterly flow in place
through midweek. Both the gulf and atlantic seabreezes will develop
and move inland each afternoon, bringing winds up to around 10kts
near the coast. Best coverage of showers and thunderstorms will
generally be inland, however outflow boundaries could enhance some
convection over the waters. High pressure rebuilds to the north late
week with east-southeast winds returning around 10-15kts into the
upcoming weekend.

Aviation Showers are developing inland from the east coast
terminals and just north and east of kapf as of 1745z. Expect some
of these will mature into thunderstorms over the next several
hours with very slow W NW movement. New development along gust
fronts may push some of this activity toward the terminals later
this afternoon or evening so vcts will be maintained until 01z. A
brief period of ifr conditions and variable gusty winds may
accompany any thunderstorms should they impact terminals.

Overnight light and variable winds before sea breezes kick in
along both coasts after sunrise. Some guidance indicates showers
may develop along the land breeze late tonight off the atlantic
coast and push west toward the east coast terminals toward
sunrise, so vcsh may need to be added to the tafs in later
issuance if confidence in this increases.

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.
