discussion...

short term (today through Friday)
tranquil early morning exists across south florida with
temperatures in the 70s and light east wind. Temperatures will
rise to seasonably warm upper 80s to low 90s with east wind
increasing as a surface ridge centered off the mid-atlantic builds
into the region. This will usher in drier conditions and keep rain
chances near zero through the end of the week. Little change is
expected in temperatures, with easterly breezes holding east coast
urban areas down a few degrees from interior areas, and dewpoints
fairly low for this time of year.

Long term (Friday night through Tuesday)
surface ridge will continue to dominate into early next week as
mid and upper level ridge intensifies over the southeastern conus.

Heights will rise in association with this features, and overall
temperatures will warm. Easterly breezes will continue through the
holiday weekend, and moisture will likely not increase until the
latter portions of the weekend, with only low pops introduced
Tuesday (at earliest). Temperatures and heat indices will rise to
above normal levels for the start of next week, but easterly flow
off the relatively cool mild atlantic may keep south florida from
being a part of what looks to be a heat wave to the north.

Marine...

high pressure will bring east wind and dry conditions to the
waters into early next week. Wind will increase later today and
tonight to cautionary levels, especially over the atlantic, and as
seas build Thursday, a small craft advisory may be needed for
atlantic waters, which could extend into the weekend.

Aviation...

vfr expected to prevail during the next 24 hours. Light easterly
wind continues through around 15z, then increasing to around 14
knots. Only exception will be apf where the gulf sea breeze is
expected to push inland around 17z.

Beach forecast...

easterly wind will increase today and Thursday, with the risk of
rip currents likely approaching moderate levels on atlantic
beaches Thursday. Thereafter, persistent easterly wind will likely
bring a high risk of rip currents to atlantic beaches Friday
through the memorial day 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.
