723 am est Sun nov 18 2018

Update
Latest sndg continues to show a couple of low level inversions one
based around 4200 ft and another stronger one based around 8600
feet. This will continue to erode but slowly during the day as
high pressure ridge continues in control to our north. But it does
explain the low level cloud decks based around 8-9 kft and lower
currently observed across the region. Given lack of depth in the
clouds, and stability of the thermodynamic profile, decided to
eliminate any mention of rain from forecast through at least early
this afternoon and will re assess later again. As it is, any rain
that is observed later today should be very light in nature, more
like sprinkles, and confined mostly to areas south and west of
the region and mainly portions of southwest coast around mainland
monroe county and surrounding areas. Other than that, rest of
forecast looks good.

Aviation
MostlyVFR conditions at all sites through next 24 hours outside
periods of borderline MVFR ceilings associated with low stratocu
decks. Winds should for the most part be out of the ene around
5-10 knots with periods of 10-15 kts during daytime today.

discussion...

mostly quiet, slightly warmer day in store, as high pressure
slides by, north of the area. A very weak 500mb shortwave, and a
weak inverted surface trough will introduce at least a slight
chance of some shower activity, mainly over the gulf waters, and
southwest florida. Some light showers may push into the miami-dade
and ft lauderdale metro area by late afternoon. This activity
should come to an end in the evening hours. Temperatures will be
in a slow warming trend.

By Tuesday, a 500mb trough is progged to move across the eastern
us. This upper level feature should spawn a surface low over the
mid-atlantic states. This low would drag a very weak cold front
through the area Tuesday. This front will barely be reflected in
the temperatures, or even the dew points. It will help to bring a
chance of showers to much of the area on Tuesday, but otherwise,
not really noticeable. But it does push through the area, and
stalls just to the south. This boundary looks to become a more
important player later in the week. The ECMWF does have the front
stalling a little further to the north, which would keep a
mention of showers for a good portion of the area on Wednesday.

Given the uncertainty, went ahead and kept chance pops for the
atlantic and its adjacent coast. Showers are much less likely
along the gulf coast Wednesday.

For the second half of the week, both the GFS and the ecmwf
develop a surface low over the northwest gulf coast. The ECMWF is
somewhat more optimistic with the low, but again, they GFS has it
as well. They both pick up the stalled boundary and bring it back
north as a warm front. So this lends a little more confidence in
a chance of showers for the second half of the week. There may be
a few thunderstorms over the atlantic waters, but the chance is
pretty low, and kept mention off the mainland at this time.

The front lifting back to the north should keep plenty of cloud
cover over the area for Thursday and Friday, keeping the high
temperatures a little lower than in the beginning of the week, but
still generally in the 80s.

The models show the system pushing through the area by late
Saturday, bringing a return of drier weather for the remainder of
the weekend.

Marine...

high pressure to the north, will keep the weather mostly quiet
for a good portion of the area. Some shower activity is possible
today, mainly for the gulf waters. Some showers have a small
chance of moving into the near shore atlantic waters as well.

Especially just north of key largo. The wind is forecast to
maintain the northeasterly direction varying between 5 and 15 kts.

Seas will continue to slowly subside over the next couple of days,
with up to a foot in the gulf by tonight, and 1 to 2 feet in the
atlantic.

With the northeast wind between 10 and 15 kts, there will be an
elevated risk of rip currents for the atlantic beaches.

Aviation...

vfr conditions will prevail throughout the forecast period.

Northeast winds will remain at about 5 kts across all terminals
through the rest of the overnight hours. These winds will increase
to near 10 knots by late Sunday morning and they will remain out
of the northeast. Dry conditions are expected to continue throughout
the day across all terminals.

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.
