Discussion
Short term (today through Wednesday): an upper level trough over the
southeast us is associated with a surface cold front boundary moving
through northern florida. There is abundant moisture ahead of the front
as it moves down the peninsula. Models show pwat values
increasing to around 1.8 to 2 inches. Today ahead of the front,
we will see shower activity and isolated thunderstorms along the
sea breezes. The cold front will move into south florida later
tonight before stalling and washing out across the region
Wednesday. Even though this is a cold front we will not see any
significant cooler air as temperatures will remain around normal.

Long term (Thursday through the weekend): the upper level trough
will move east as a mid level ridge builds over the region by the
end of the week into the weekend. This will bring a breezy east
northeast wind to south florida through the weekend. With the
front stalling out and tropical moisture still lingering around,
showers and a few storms will be possible in the afternoon hours.

By the end of the weekend the ridge shifts eastward into the western
atlantic and flow will return to east southeast. Temps will remain
around normal through the extended forecast period.

Marine
Easterly around 10 knots will continue before shifting to more
northerly with a cold front moving into the region, then
northeasterly flow and increasing to around 20 knots by end of the
work week. Seas will be 2 to 5 feet before increasing later this
week especially in the atlantic waters.

Aviation
Diurnal convection will once again be possible on Tuesday with a
mid-level disturbance nearing the area late in the TAF period.

Wind flow should remain lightest during the overnight hours,
picking up after the sea breeze starts later in the morning hours.

Afternoon convection will likely focus along the sea breeze and
any remnant boundaries. Heading into Tuesday night, some showers
may develop as the disturbance nears from the northwest.

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.
