Elevated rip current risk this weekend along the atlantic
beaches...

Discussion
A stalled frontal boundary north of the area will keep south
florida in the warmer, moist airmass that has been over our area
the last couple of days. Sea breezes are expected to develop today
with the possibility of showers later this afternoon and evening.

Rain chances will begin to increase starting tonight as the next
low pressure system and the associated cold front begin to move
into the southern great plains. The remnant boundary will interact
with some mid-level ripples ahead of this system which could lead
to showers and thunderstorms over portions of the weekend.

As the weekend draws to an end and the next work week begins, the
low pressure system is making progress towards the east. With the
low interacting with the remnant front, much of florida will be in
the warm sector on Monday into Tuesday. The cold front will push
through on Tuesday as the surface low erodes and a mid-level
trough pushes the remnants of the system east into the atlantic. A
brief period of drier air will move over Wednesday into Thursday
but zonal flow will help keep temperatures from cooling down too
much.

The next low pressure system will move on a more northerly track
through the tennessee and ohio valleys with a weak front pushing
through a good portion of the peninsula of florida Thursday before
stalling over south central florida late Thursday early Friday.

This will be followed quickly by a clipper that will move into the
upper midwest and great lakes with an associated frontal boundary
reaching south into mexico late in the week. This system will
rapidly progress eastward to close out the period. Impacts and
timing are still difficult to nail down so far out as guidance
solutions differ significantly. The forecast evolution of these
systems over the next week should be followed in case of any
severe weather threat emerging.

Marine
Increasing swell and gusty easterly wind will lead to hazardous
seas over the atlantic waters today that will linger into Sunday.

Elevated winds and seas will linger into early in the week as the
next cold front pushes through the area. Conditions will gradually
improve by midweek.

Aviation
East coast sites will generally remain ene 8-10kts through the
remainder of the overnight, though kopf-ktmb will briefly drop to
5-8kts through daybreak. Speeds pickup after 13z, with east wind
surge arriving after 18z bringing speeds around 15kts with gusts
to 25kts. Kapf expected to see gulf breeze around same time,
backing winds out of the wsw. Conditions look to remainVFR,
though occasional east coast MVFR stratocu possible through
period. Bkn050 and vcsh become more likely along east coast after
18z.

Beach forecast
Increasing swell and persistent easterly flow will create an
elevated risk of rip currents along the atlantic beaches this
weekend. The palm beaches will begin seeing high rip current risks
today that may persist through the weekend into early next week.

The miami- dade and broward beaches may also see deteriorating
conditions this weekend into early next week. Rip current
statement for the palm beaches in effect through at least this
evening but will likely need to be extended in time and possibly
area.

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.
