Update
High pressure over the western atlantic waters will remain nearly
stationary today keeping a southeast wind flow in place over south
florida. At this same time, some low level moisture over the
bahama islands will continue to move west northwest around the
ridge and towards central florida. This will allow for some
isolated to scattered showers to develop over the atlantic waters
which could work into the east coast metro areas of south florida before
dissipating. Therefore, a slight chance of showers will remain in
the forecast for the east coast metro areas along with a low end
chance over the atlantic waters for today.

There is also a high risk of rip currents for the east coast
beaches today, due to the southeast wind flow along with low tide
this afternoon.

Rest of the forecast looks good at this time and no other chances
are expected.

very isold atlc shra brushing east coast early this morning,
limited enough to keep mention out of tafs at this time.

Occasional MVFR CIGS fl020-030 possible through 14z or so even
outside of shra with cumulus bands moving onshore. Winds not quite
as strong as yesterday, currently light se, picking from the ese
at 10-15kts for all sites. Kapf expected to see wsw gulf breeze
again this afternoon after 19z. Winds diminish after 00z for all
sites with the exception of kfll which is likely to remain 8-12kts
all night.

discussion...

a few very patchy pockets of fog are occurring over the interior
peninsula this morning but should quickly dissipate after sunrise.

Relatively warm and dry conditions are expected for the next
couple of days with ridging remaining in place aloft. Expect
temperatures well above normal to continue for the next couple of
days, with today likely being the warmest of the forecast period.

A transition into a wetter pattern will begin across the area on
Sunday, with deeper moisture filtering in over the area and the
ridge starting to retreat to the southeast. This will allow for
increasing chances for showers across the peninsula on Sunday
out ahead of a cold front pushing into the state from the
northwest. This front should push into south florida Sunday night
into Monday morning and is currently forecast to stall out near
the florida keys. However, there is still some uncertainty to
where exactly this front will end up as it is largely dependent on
how quickly the ridging retreats before the front loses it's
upper level support. No matter where exactly the front ends up, it
will likely continue to hang out across the area for a few days as
zonal flow aloft won't do much to move it. This will serve as a
focus for showers and perhaps a thunderstorm or two before finally
washing out around Thursday, just in time for another cold front
to push into the area and stall out late next week.

Marine...

se flow continues until a cold front pushes through the area
late Sunday into Monday before stalling out near the florida keys.

Winds quickly become easterly again by Tuesday and southeasterly
by Wednesday. Increasing chances for showers and perhaps a
thunderstorm or two are expected with this front as it remains
draped across the area for several days. Caution flags could be
required for the atlantic waters for breezy conditions on
Saturday.

Aviation...

as with the past few nights, there will be a threat for passing
atlc shra through the early morning hours. Main threat currently
vcnty kpbi, though occasional MVFR CIGS are possible for all atlc
sites. Some overnight fog could develop over inland southwest
florida that may reach apf. SE winds through the TAF period,
except ssw for a time tomorrow afternoon at apf with a gulf
breeze.

Beach forecast...

a high risk of rip currents is forecast for atlantic beaches
again today.

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.
