Marine Weather and Tides
Miami Beach, 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.

Showers and storms possible again today...

Discussion
The unsettled pattern continues through a good portion of the
period as plenty of moisture will persist across the region. An
area of surface high pressure over the atlantic will be the main
synoptic feature over the region, keeping an easterly to
southeasterly flow through a good portion of this week. To the
north of the region, a frontal boundary will stall over the
southeastern states. The main impacts of this pattern will be the
threat of showers and thunderstorms with a convective focus
across southwest florida where some potential interactions with
the gulf sea breeze could allow for thunderstorms.

Things begin to shift late in the week into this weekend, when all
eyes turn to the tropical disturbance over the western caribbean.

Model guidance continues to feature a variety of different
solutions which creates much lower confidence with the actual
classification of this disturbance moving forward. A few of the
higher confidence items are the fact that tropical moisture will
be present across south florida this weekend into early next week
as this system passes to the north Saturday into Sunday. The gfs
continues to take the system either close to the region or to the
east, but it appears there could be some issues relating to the
model impacting the deterministic run as the ensemble mean comes
closer to other solutions with a weak feature traversing the gulf
of mexico off the west coast of florida instead.

We will have to watch the forecast evolution of this disturbance
as it could bring heavy rainfall and gusty winds to south florida
and the adjacent waters. The primary impacts at this point from
this disturbance will be the threat of excessive rainfall
associated with any source of tropical moisture over the region
and the possibility of impacts over the marine waters. Once the
disturbance pushes north, there is the potential for a tail of
tropical moisture to linger over the region early next week. This
moisture tail could allow an excessive rainfall threat to continue
through the end of the extended forecast period. Obviously, there
is great uncertainty with the forecast from late in the week
onward and those with interests in south florida should monitor
developments closely through the rest of this week and the
memorial day holiday weekend.

Marine
Showers and thunderstorms with easterly to southeasterly flow will
be the main story through much of the week before another surge
of moisture with higher rain chances and an increase in winds is
expected late this week through the memorial day weekend. A
tropical disturbance in the western caribbean will need to be
monitored as it could potentially impact the waters off south
florida as it progresses north generally into the gulf of mexico
this weekend.

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.
