Update
No changes needed to be made to the previous forecast as
everything looks on track. An area of high pressure will continue
to dominate the weather across the region tonight. The winds will
continue to shift more towards the east northeast as the night
progresses which will allow for the temperatures to be not as cold
as they were as last night. Low temperatures tonight will range
from the upper 40s across the northwestern interior sections to
the lower 60s across the east coast metro areas. Another dry day
is expected on Tuesday as high pressure remains in control of the
weather pattern.

vfr will continue through the next 24 hours with possible periods
of CIGS around 4-5k on Tuesday. NE winds will veer E by 06-09z
and increase to 15-20knots with higher gusts by 17-18z Tuesday.

an area of high pressure will continue to dominate the weather
across south florida tonight and through the first half of the week.

Winds will continue to shift around to the northeast and then
easterly through the early portion of the week. This will allow for
temperatures to quickly moderate over the next several days. Lows
tonight will still remain on the cool side, however, they will not
be as cold as they were last night. Low temperatures tonight will
drop into the mid to upper 40s across the northwestern interior
sections to the lower 60s across the east coast metro areas. High
temperatures on Tuesday will range from the lower 70s across the
east coast to the upper 70s across the interior.

As the middle of the week approaches, the area of high pressure will
continue to slide off to the east as another cold front will begin
to approach the region from the northwest. Both of the GFS and the
ecmwf continue to remain in good agreement with having this cold
front moving into the area on Thursday and then passing through
Thursday night into Friday. This will help to increase the chance of
showers during this time frame as well. As with the last front, most
of the dynamics and the instability will remain off to the north
of the area, however, there will still be a slight chance of
thunderstorms as well ahead of the front.

As the weekend approaches the GFS and the ECMWF continue to show a
different solution with the front that is expected to move through
later this week. The ECMWF shows it progressing back to the north
towards the second half of the weekend while the GFS shows it
remaining right off shore. Current forecast took a blend of the two
models regarding the chances of precipitation. This will continue to
be monitored as the week progresses.

for Tuesday across the atlantic waters if current forecast trends
continue.

county beaches this evening. An elevated risk of rip currents will

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
