Marine Weather and Tides
Bal Harbour, 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.

Scattered shra linger near apf through 03z tonight.VFR should
then prevail at all terminals until Thursday late morning when
another round of showers and afternoon vcts could bring periods of
MVFR ifr cigs. Winds will become light and variable at times
tonight, then ese at 8-12 knots on Thursday, except apf where
onshore flow may bring westerly winds around 10 kt in the
afternoon.

scattered showers and a few storms continue across the interior and
lake okeechobee region this afternoon and this evening.

Southeasterly flow persisting is keeping the convection west of the
east coast metro region. The unsettled pattern will continue
tomorrow with diurnal convection with most of the activity
concentrated over the interior and gulf coast. Moisture will begin
to increase as we get into Thursday evening as eyes turn to the
tropics.

Late this week into the weekend the forecast is highly dependent on
the tropical disturbance in the western caribbean. Currently the
national hurricane center has a 60 percent chance of development
over the eastern or central gulf of mexico in the next five days.

Models continue to differ on when and where the system will actually
track. The GFS continues to be on the eastern edge of all the
guidance tracking closer to the west coast of florida. While the
ecmwf tracks the system further west into the northern gulf.

Regardless of development and the track of the system an abundance
of tropical moisture will move into the south florida. The moisture
surge will bring pwats above 2 inches across the area. This moisture
will bring an increase in rain chances and a slight chance of
thunderstorms late week through the holiday weekend. There is
potential for 3 to 5 inches of rain across the region through the
weekend with locally higher amounts. With the potential for
excessive rainfall, this could bring potential flooding issues with
already saturated ground and elevated canal levels. Those with
interests in south florida should monitor developments closely
through the rest of this week and the holiday weekend.

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.
