Discussion
Scattered showers and thunderstorms have developed along the east
and west coast sea breezes this afternoon and they are slowly
moving westward. The greatest concentration of storms this
afternoon will be located over the interior sections. Most of
these storms will diminish as the evening progresses. Low
temperatures across south florida tonight will range from the
lower 70s across the northwestern interior to near 80 across the
east coast metro areas. Latest computer model guidance continues
to show the ridging aloft beginning to break down on Thursday as a
trough offshore starts to evolve into what will become a closed
low on Thursday night over the bahamas. This will help to bring an
increase in moisture on Thursday and Friday over the region which
will allow for a greater chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Models are also suggesting that temperatures at the 500 mb level
will cool to around -10 celsius by Friday which would support the
possibility for a few stronger thunderstorms to develop during the
afternoon hours especially across interior sections.

As the weekend approaches, both of the GFS and the ECMWF show the
upper level low moving off to the west of the region by Saturday
afternoon, however, a few weak disturbances will move through the
area and the deeper low level moisture will remain in place
through Sunday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are still
possible each day during the weekend with the greatest chances
remaining over the interior and west coast during the afternoon
hours. By early next week, drier air will filter in, with lesser
shower and thunderstorm coverage. Look for temperatures to remain
near seasonal normals during this time frame.

Marine
East to southeasterly winds will prevail across the atlantic and
gulf coastal waters throughout the forecast period. Seas through
the end of the work week will generally be 3 feet or less across
the local waters. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will occur
across the atlantic and gulf waters mainly during the overnight
and early morning hours, before shifting primarily to the gulf
waters during the afternoon. Winds and waves could be locally
higher in and around any shower or thunderstorm.

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.
