Few atlantic showers possible this morning, accounted for with
vcsh. Then, scattered afternoon convection should develop along
gulf breeze in naples (where wind will shift w). Otherwise,
generally dry conditions with daytime E wind around 10 kt, AOB 5
kt overnight.

latest surface observation shows a broad surface high pressure
extending across the eastern seaboard while an area of low
pressure is located 300 miles of nc over the western atlantic.

Ridge is keeping a weak pressure gradient across south florida
with an E to SE flow prevailing across S florida. A few showers
in the early morning hours can not be ruled out but these will be
light and brief in nature. As the day progresses, more afternoon
activity is expected as winds will be light to moderate allowing
for sea breeze development. Most of the convection should remain
in the interior and west gulf coast this afternoon. Pop chances
remain low along the east coast as predominant easterly flow keep
most of the convection west. The main threats with the storms will
be brief heavy downpours, cloud to ground lightning, and gusty
winds to around 40 mph. The weather pattern will not change much
forecast metro areas. High temperatures will remain in the mid to
upper 80s along the east coast and t most of the week as easterly
flow is forecast to persist and strengthen across S fl. Easterly
flow will dominate and as a result keeping most of the sea breeze
convection each afternoon concentrated in the west gulf coast.

By the end of the week into the weekend, a more zonal flow sets up
across the north of the CONUS while atlantic ridge axis is expected
to build over the florida peninsula. This will allow for the easterly
flow to continue through the end of the period with a typical late
summer to early autumn pattern. Chance of showers and thunderstorms
will still be possible across south florida but will remain mainly
concentrated over the west gulf coast. During the overnight hours,
showers developing over the atlantic could move onshore and stream
across the east coast metro areas. High temperatures will remain in
the mid to upper 80s along the east coast and the 90s along the west
gulf coast through the forecast period.

Marine... Surface ridge in place will maintain a persistent
easterly flow across the atlantic and gulf waters through much of
the period. Seas remain below 3 to 4 feet. Scattered showers and
thunderstorms will be possible during the overnight hours and
could produce brief period of gusty winds and locally higher seas.

Ridge builds over the fl peninsula by the weekend keeping an
easterly flow across the waters and increasing winds close to
advisory levels. Small craft should exercise caution during the
weekend with possible winds around 15 to 20 knots.

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.
