Discussion
Today and tonight: the weather pattern for south florida will
continue to be driven by a strong upper level ridge. The mfl 00z
sounding had a record high 500mb height for this date. It is this
strong ridge that continues to bring record highs across much of
the eastern us and our continued warm temperatures in south
florida. Today the ridge continues to strengthen and will become
more east-west oriented across florida. Breezy easterly wind flow
will continue across the area. A weak low-level moisture
disturbance will work its way around the high this morning. Most
of this activity looks to stay to our south across the florida
keys, however some isolated showers are possible across the east
coast.

Temperatures today will remain above normal for this time of year
with low to mid 80s across the east coast. The interior and west
coast will see the warmest temperatures in the mid to upper 80s.

This weekend: the upper level ridge will move westerly across the
state into the gulf of mexico and begin to weaken, the low level
ridge axis will slide southward as well. This will allow the wind
to veer more southeasterly and become a little less breezy. Low
level moisture disturbances and areas of higher moisture will
bring periods of showers to the east coast regions. Temperatures
will continue to be warm in the low to mid 80s, with overnight low
temps in the 60s over the interior and gulf and low 70s along the
east coast.

Next week: the weakening ridge will allow a front to move into the
southeast us. Models are not in agreement on how far south this
front will make it. This could bring some increased moisture to
the region. Will continue to monitor model trends with
progression of the front.

Marine high pressure continues to dominate the weather pattern
with breezy east to southeast winds through the weekend. A few
showers are possible over the atlantic waters through the weekend.

Aviation
Easterly winds, around 10 kt, will persist through
the night for the east coast TAF sites. Aft 22 1400z, east southeast
winds will increase to near 15 kt, gusting up to 25 kt at times. By
evening, expect these winds to weaken back down to around 10 kt. Sct
low clouds will push on shore from the atlantic through the period.

Bases of these clouds between 2000-3000 ft agl. Otherwise,VFR
conds.

Beach forecast Breezy easterly flow will lead to a high risk
of rip currents at atlantic beaches through the remainder of the
week.

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.
